View Full Version : Dolphin-emu: How can I make it run smoother?

Basically, iso files like Super Smash Bros Melee will run at speeds of about 20% on my machine. As you can imagine it's less than ideal.

I've played around in the configuration settings to try and see if I can't speed the frame rate up, but I haven't had a lot of luck. I was hoping someone might be able to show me how I can get these sort of games to run at more normal speeds.

My machine is a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop running a X3100 Media Accelerator card.

As always, much appreciated.

Hi, do you have additional drivers enabled? (for graphics card)

The only thing that shows under my additional drivers option is my STA wireless card, nothing for my graphics card.

It'll be difficult, at best, to run Dolphin well on a laptop with integrated graphics. The requirements are just too high.

That's pretty much what I've gathered. No use kicking a dead horse. I've now moved my attention to trying to get lxdream to work. For some reason I can't even access its video settings.
