    Hello, I believe I have the newest version of the Dolphin emulator, and Im trying to play Twilight Princess. Is there a way to use your keyboard as the controller? It wants me to use a gamecube controller but I dont know how thats even possible. Id like to be able to use the keyboard.. :( Thanks!

    Yes, you can... go to Dolphin's options>Plugins>Pad>drop down and click Dolphin kb/X360pad>click Config then click the buttons to match your keyboard that you want to use. :)

    dolphin-emu - Google Code

    System Requirements

    * Windows XP or higher, or a 64-bit Linux install.
    * Fast CPU with SSE2. Dual core a plus.
    * Any reasonable modern GPU, support for pixel shaders 2.0 required.

    Squall, i understood what he posted, but rockman already gave him instructions. And in a very detailed way... so asking that is a little lazy from his side

    Im not sure what the instructions mean. I clicked the link and it sent me to a development page that looks like its meant for coding. Can someone explain?

    -Go into the SVN discussion topic
    -Look for Nivelis/Daco/Xtreme2Damax signatures and download the latest revs
    -After installing/extracting look for the dolphin.ini file and make sure it says dualcore = true, Dynarec = true
    -Try running it again

    Rockman I sent you a PM

    Ok I found Daco's sig and I downloaded the Win32 version (which is what I have) and I installed it and changed the Dualcore to true but im getting errors when I start the program: Failed load plugin Plugins\Plugin_PadSimple.dll - unkown error and

    Failed load plugin Plugins\Plugin_VideoDX9.dll - unknown error

    and then to just see what loading the emulator would do it says Couldnt init the core. check your configuration. And then does nothing
