Possible to make cross eyed 3D pictures? I can do those perfectly so those would cater to me specifically, but I just don't have any glasses :(

I think the water effect in ACCF is really cool. I can't run most Wii games in 1080p at more than 30% speed so I haven't gone any further than the title screen on most. Does anyone else have some high res AC screenshots?

Just ordered a new PC, once I OC it, will it be able to run this emulator alright in 720p?

Vid description says it runs fullspeed but that video had issues everywhere... Get a Wii, duder :D

Game looks great in HD (also in HD even) though. Much improved from the first game for sure. Bigger areas, better lighting. Still some shitty parts though. That blood splatter could have been better, especially since it's so prominent. And maybe they could have toned down the exploding enemies since I imagine in some parts it affects performance like in the original. I'd have them melt in a puddle of blood that disappears in the ground or something, not explode everywhere.

Argh, need PAL version :(

Umm.. are we looking at the same thing? Tatsunoko looks awesome. (from the videos and screens i've seen..)
I thought the same thing, but the backgrounds are pretty bad in some places. I still think it looks pretty damn good though.

How are you guys getting anti aliasing to work? I know DX9's anti aliasing doesn't work but even with Open GL, I can't get it to work. Tried forcing it through nvidia control panel and ntune but everything has a blurred look to it and I still see jaggies.

Doubt it. iMacs are built from laptop components.

Actually the new Imac revision uses desktop parts for almost everything except for the GPU, which is a mobility chipset.

Wow, Klonoa looks fantastic.
I've been playing through NSMB wii on dolphin. It looks so much better running at 1680x1050 on my 22" monitor than a SD on my 37" HD TV. I love that I can get full speed on it too. Only thing that annoys me is 3D (nVidia 3d vision) doesn't work in levels, only on the map screen.
I know it's just been released but how does NMH2 fair? I don't want to watch the vid posted as I want to avoid seeing footage as much as possible until my copy arrives. It would be awesome if it ran at full speed and worked in 3D.

Thinking about building a new PC soon. My current rig runs games fine and smooth for me (considering most PC games these days are made with consoles in mind). For this I think I am being held back by my AM2 socket type (unless you guys could point out an AM2 that would run Prime, TP, etc at 25-30fps lol.) From this thread I am gathering that Intel's the way to go for Wii Emulation? What are the options for AMD (honestly either manufacturer's good, just curious)?

No More Heroes 2 is a game that i want to see in HD

Well, at least someone was smart enough to do a PS3/360 port of the original. Releases later this month in Japan, other regions unknown or not happening.

NMH2 runs great with the speedhack. There are a couple of minor graphical glitches but otherwisde it's fully playable I think.

So I got TP running and it looks the same running on my Wii on the same monitor. I have the resolution set high with AA/AF cranked up and it looks native still, except menus and the hud. When I pause the game and look at Link he looks the way I want the rest of the game to look (IE: freakin awesome). What gives?

Oh and the game runs like crap (10-15fps) :lol But I just want to see this gorgeous game the way it was meant to be seen (like in those awesome screens).

I'm going to search this thread: But I pretty much void my existence if I mod my Wii to do this right? I just bought a 40" Toshiba and want to somehow execute on this.

Are you confusing homebrew and emulation? This is a program that runs on a PC.

Double check your options under video..
theres a resolution checkmark that says native.
I've had the same problem before.. can't exactly remember how i fixed it, but it was something like that.

Yeah I was frustrated so I just started checking options and shit and testing it and eventually I got it to work. :lol I first saw it running I almost shit myself. Game looks stunning. The first area runs at 30fps too, others like 15. I took some screens of the early areas to show my friend running at 1280 X 1050 with 16x AA and 16AF. Just the start of the game:

Dolphin revisions from 5006 have a new awesome feature: Anti Aliasing support under DirectX. Two games arrived at my doorstep today, one of them is this:







The intro is really impressive, so many whales and stuff going on at a solid 30 FPS. I am uploading part of the intro in 1080P, should be done soon.
Edit: Here is part of the intro http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GlcgJ89tnRo , will add more screenshots when I progress trough the game. Damn, Gatama Atoll is just ... wow in 1080P
Edit2: Two hours in, this game is so much better than EO1. Works great on dolphin too and is nice eyecandy.

Settings or specs? Same settings, haven't really played it since then (still at the start). For specs I have a 9800gt and a Atlhon 64 X2 2.3Ghz. It's definitely the cpu that's holding it back.

Oh and I made a mistake on my last post: the resolution was 1680 x 1050 not 1280 x 1050.

I have gotten trough the whole storyline mission of Endless Ocean 2. Eight hours on the clock, time to go and explore. The game runs great but with some really minor issues. There are some transparent textures (A certain statue is white, while it should be gold) and the emulator has some troubles with the DoF effect used in the game, but nothing major. Haven't encountered a single crash, so the game is fully playable using the Wii Remote or the classical controller on Dolphin. Some more screenshots:

Those pics are great, but I wish I hadn't seen them. Spoiler territory there. I want to experience it first hand.

Anyone capable of 720p screencapping PS3 games? I'd love to see EO2 emulated and at 720p resolution versus Aquanaut's Holiday in native 720p.

I am thinking of upgrading my cpu for bad company 2. Going to go from a 2.2 dual core (oc'd to 3.0) to a 2.5 Quad core (and prolly OC to atleast 3.0). I have 2gb of ram and an 8800GT. Would wind waker run well on this set up? atm im getting around 10-20fps.

Might consider a better video card and doubling your RAM. Running with a 64-bit OS will help, too (especially if you do go to 4GB of RAM).

I thought there was just a blur filter placed over the game, like in the orignal.
For the most part, those screens look the same as the original in HD.
That's what I thought too, those screens would be jaggy as fuck if they were upscaled from 640x480.

I don't think it means nothing
from the point that to emulate a game the emulator has to run 10X times faster than the console
so this means while the ps3 is the most powerful console but if there is a computer, since computers are the most advanced in technology if certain pc runs 10x faster than the ps3 then you will be able to play ps3 games in your pc
