Have not looked into the Emulation world in years figured the only thing worth emulating as far as consoles go is the GC or Wii and to my suprise the emulation scene for the GC and Wii are well on thier way…Another plus the Dolphin runs both Wii and GC commercial games:)
All other games for x360 or PS3 all come to PC anyhow and always look and run better.
Started with dolphin SVN_3404 moved to SVN_3661 and have tested Mario Galaxy_Wii,Resident Evil Remake and Luigis mansion GameCube Used these games only because I own them using downloaded ISO’s is breaking the law_ all work flawlessly at full speed for the most part and look better than thier console counter part because with emulation you can up the Resolution and also use high res textures. The GC or Wii hardware only support 480P.
The emulator is CPU dependant having a Dual or quad core CPU is a must if you want full speed.
Earlier revisions I beleive that dual & quad support is broken or only supports dual cores latest 2 revisions recognise the quad core cpu.
Also took note that there is support for the Wiimote and other Wii hardware as long as your PC has bluetooth you can hook up the Wiimote.
If ya wanna try using the Wiimote or other hardware and don’t have Bt on your Desktop PC at newegg they have a USB bluetooth for $9.99 my desktop did not have Bt plus you can find a 3rd party Wii mote at Sears for around $30 I have not tried yet but put in the order for the $9.99 BT USB.

Here a link to use the Wiimote as a mouse if you would like.
