Dolphin emulator - play your Gamecube & wii on Archlinux

Dolphin is an emulator for two recent Nintendo video game consoles: the GameCube and the Wii. It allows PC gamers to enjoy games for these two consoles in full HD (1080p) with several enhancements: compatibility with all PC controllers, turbo speed, networked multiplayer, and even more!


Dolphin is available for Linux, MacOSX (intel-based), MS Windows and Android. It is a free and open source, community-developed project. Dolphin was the first Gamecube and Wii emulator, and currently the only one capable of playing commercial games.

Installation on Archlinux:
$sudo pacman -S dolphin-emu

For playing games you can directly play from your wii games iso / dvd. Here's the UI of dolphin emu:

First time set the controllers first:
And the next step is insert your Wii/Gamecube Disc if you have DVD-ROM or create backup of your games to ISO. Then load it into Dolphin.

Make sure your PC/Laptop have meet requirement of Dolphin, if not the wii games will be slow. On my Laptop Dell Inspiron N4110 Core i3 2.3 Ghz with ATI HD 64xx 4GB ram, some games run very lag on 3D, but for 2D it run fast. For see compability you can check on dolphin sites below.
