Dolphin 4.0 / 4.0.4669 Dev
Free and open source powerful emulator that brings the console experience on the desktop
A good thing happened when console games started to become desired by PC gamers, because software companies and developers started to create emulator apps that provide console gaming support for desktop devices.
Such an application is Dolphin, an open source and useful emulator that mimics the functions of Gamecube and Wii console devices on a PC host, and also offers support for many extra functions and capabilities not present on the original console devices like compatibility with all PC controllers, networked multiplayer modes, and “turbo speed”.
Works on all popular OS platforms and comes with support for both Gamecube and Wii file disc images
Furthermore, Dolphin comes with support for DOL and ELF files, both Gamecube and Wii disc images, physical back-up discs, Wii system menu and channels, as well as WAD files that contain information like graphics, levels, maps, that can be edited for creating game mods.
An important and worth mentioning feature is the fact that Dolphin can work without problems on all major platforms such as OS X, Windows, Linux, FreeBSD, and also Android devices.
Take the console gaming experience to a whole new level with enhanced performance and graphics
What’s more, Dolphin features an anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering that, when combined, boost the graphic quality of the game, making it more realistic and more natural to look at when compared to being played on the console.
Moreover, Dolphin also offers you the possibility to play games at maximum resolution and in high-definition up to 1080p, the only limit being your Mac’s video card capabilities.
Enables desktop gaming fans to get a taste of console gaming experience
All in all, Dolphin is a useful and powerful Wii and Gamecube emulator that manages not only to bring the console gaming experience on your Mac's desktop, but also to improve the overall performance and graphics of the emulated games.
