Dolphin Setup

Configuring Dolphin


Always use the latest beta build of Dolphin for NetPlay.

Download the latest Dolphin Beta

The latest Dolphin Emulator Beta includes bug fixes, performance enhancements, and other improvements to streamline your Netplay process. It is also supported by the Dolphin developers should you run into any issues, unlike Slippi or other Faster Melee variants.


Please refrain from using any versions or variations of Slippi or Faster Melee. The project maintainer for Slippi has explicitly stated their preference against using these for other games, and there are valid reasons for this request.
