Max settings\performance settings help\suggestions


New member
Getting into some retro gaming lately, Ive used emulators in the past, after lots of trial and error running max settings with tweaks on the psx emulator I had amazing graphics. New to the dolphin emulator I was looking for more information on running max settings, strickly for my resident evil marathon, 0-4. I have watched several youtube videos, looked at stickies on what most of the setting features mean but most are for basic low-mid end standards. Any useful information or links would be great for trying max settings, 1920x 1080p. Thanks for any help!

When you say max settings do you just mean graphics settings or do you mean frame rate?

Here are the official wiki pages for those games on GC:

I have only ever played part 4 and your CPU is not fast enough to play the full game at full speed. My 4.5 GHz 2500K is not fast enough in many scenes.

I have been toying with the settings, part 4 crashes after title screen. Resident evil 2 has the sound cutting problem most people have and theres white lines all over the surrounding textures but I did try resident evil 0 and 1, looks beautiful and runs great with these settings, I am running Direct3D9 at Anisotropic Filtering 16x, 1920x1080p and even tried AA at 4x and 9x both run fine and resident evil 0 and 1 runs perfect and looks amazing but I always want to make sure I cant push it farther. Not sure about the rest of the settings and advanced settings. I will check those links out


That Damn Good
Speed wise REmake works fine, but there are annoying graphical issues such as objects not lining up properly such as candles and shelves that you have to push. RE0 seems to work pretty well. From what I have tried with RE4, the Wii version works fine so I have no doubt the GC version would work fine as well.
