The Dolphin Team have released a new version of their Nintendo GameCube and Wii emulator for the PC. The emulator has great compatibility and speed along with Wiimote support (if you have a compatible bluetooth dongle).
Dolphin is a Nintendo GameCube and Wii emulator for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X (Intel/AMD CPU). Its name is derived from the original code name for the GameCube, "Dolphin" in 1999. Dolphin is considered to be the first GameCube emulator to successfully run commercial games. Following a certain revision, it also became the first emulator to run several Wii games properly.
Dev's have been hard at work and doing some amazing fixes. First off is DSP work. Super Mario Galaxy now has sound support and is working for the most part. It's just missing some volume controls and left/right controls on the sound. Second are the graphical fixes. Fear not, it will no longer make you want to stab your eyes out. I have taken a few pictures and will link you to the forum post to see them. Currently, there is a bug in Duel Core causing a hang but its already being looked at.
