I haven’t played with any emulators in years. Downloaded Dolphin to try a few Gamecube games. And it loaded up Super Mario Galaxy 2 Wii no problem mouse and K/b controls work great. I’ve connected the Wiimote to my PC using BlueTooth and some candles before quite a few years back it worked. The candles work as the sensor bar and is somewhat responsive it’s usable. I’m using Dolphin 3.0 not sure if it’s latest or not but it works so i’ll play with it for a bit actually played Mario Galaxy2 for a few hours lol. Funny Have a Wii never played it 1x got emulator and dropped a few hours in right away. Mario Galaxy 2 is really a good game i’ve enjoyed it quite a bit.
Here’s the link to the Dolphin Emulator: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3116735/dolphin-3.0-win64.exe I use Windows 7×64 there is a 32bit version of Dolphin as well can be found here. http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/gamecube/dolphin.html
My hardware is AMD PhenomII Quad core 3.0ghz, Geforce 560Ti 1024mb,8 Gb DDRII memory,Windows 7 X64 all drivers are latest. The Wii isn’t exactly a monster system so i’d imagine most of todays PC’s will run the Mario games pretty smoothly I average 50-60FPS drop to 35fps once and awhile. Can crank up everything Max Resolution and 4xaa/16x AF with all the bells & Whistles turned up for quality picture. Not sure what all games will work but happy playing Mario Galaxy 2 for now.
Here’s some screens I took in game running on my PC:
