I've wanted for so long to be able to play some games that I'm not able to. If so, you can download USB loader and put it in the apps folder on.
Emulator.Games provides a simple way for you to download video game ROMs and play them on your computer or online within your browser. Emulators are provided that can play the ROM you download. Start playing your favorite Nintendo and Sony game consoles such as GBA, SNES, NES, GBC, N64, NDS, PSP, PS2, PSX, WII and Gameboy ROMs. We also have downloadable ROMs for other game emulators such as ATARI, SEGA, XBOX, DREAMCAST and MAME. All of the ROMs are easy to find with fast downloading speeds and play on all your devices in high quality.
The world of VR attracts many players and developers into its fold, and one result is Dolphin VR, a Nintendo GameCube and Wii emulator for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. That's right; as long as you have some old games lying around that you can rip into an ISO file, you can be playing them in your head-mounted display. Let's take a look at how to get Dolphin VR set up!
First things first; let's download and install the Dolphin VR emulator.
Click Dolphin VR 5.0-250 (SDK 1.3.0). You'll be routed to a mega.nz URL.
Right-click the Dolphin VR file.
Click the checkbox next to Unblock.
Click Finish when the installation is complete.
Now that Dolphin VR is installed, you can import any GameCube or Wii games you ripped from your old disks. We will assume that you've already moved the ISO files onto your PC.
Double-click the Dolphin could not find any GameCube/Wii ISOs line in the main window.
Click Select Folder.
Your games will now show up in Dolphin VR.
There are a few tweaks required to get your games working properly in Dolphin VR.
Click the checkbox next to Enable Cheats.
Click Direct3D 11. If you're using an AMD GPU, you might get better results by sticking with OpenGL.
Click the Enhancements tab.
Click 3x Native (1920x1056) for 1080p.
Click the checkbox next to Skip EFB Access from CPU.
Click the Avatar tab.
Depending on your system, you might have completely different settings for an optimal experience. We recommend starting with the settings above and going from there.
While you can use a keyboard and mouse by default with Dolphin VR, we will show you how to configure a gamepad. Before starting these steps, ensure your gamepad is connected to your PC. In our case, we're using the Xbox controller that was included with the Oculus Rift.
Click Configure next to Port 1 in the GameCube Controllers section.
You can now click on each button in the list and hit each corresponding button on your gamepad. The setup I have here seems to work pretty well, but you can map everything out as you wish.
When you have all keys mapped, continue with these steps.
Type a name for your gamepad configuration.
Gamepads can also be set up in the Wiimote section, but they'll only work if the Wii game you're trying to play is compatible with a gamepad (aka the Nintendo classic controller).
A note on setting up Wiimotes. Attempting to configure a Touch or Vive controller to act exactly like a Wiimote is tough. We haven't had much luck getting it exactly right, but we can show you how to get the basics down.
Click Configure next to Wiimote 1 in the Wiimotes section.
Click VR/0/Touch. For Vive controllers, you'd select VR/0/Vive.
Click the dropdown menu in the Profile section.
If you're using Vive controllers, textures should be applied automatically so that you can see the controller in game.
There are plenty of settings you can mess around with in order to get your VR motion controllers working exactly like Wiimotes. If you have a particularly good setup, please share it with us in the comments section.
Now that your controllers are set up and Dolphin VR is correctly configured, you must enable a few AR codes to make your game work properly with VR.
Right-click a game in your list.
Click the AR Codes tab.
Dolphin VR understandably has some issues -- we are, after all, playing GameCube and Wii games in VR. In our experience, GameCube games worked almost flawlessly with the settings listed above. Wii games are a different story. Many do not have AR codes to remove black bars and other outside camera views, and the whole motion controller thing is much more complicated than a simple gamepad.
Nevertheless, here are a few tricks we saw along the way that might make your experience with Dolphin VR that much better.
If you notice your game is stuttering or there's some tearing, there's a pullup option for 90Hz HMDs like the Vive and Rift have.
If you're using a Vive, SteamVR should handle all the 3D stuff on its own, but with Oculus, you can benefit from enabling this option.
Click the dropdown menu next to Stereoscopic 3D Mode.
Are you suffering from motion sickness while playing? There are a few settings we can tweak to help.
Click the dropdown menu next to Sky/Background.
Click the dropdown menu next to Motion Sickness Prevention Method.
You can tweak these settings as you see fit to get the best motion sickness reduction.
