:::::::::First off: No, it is impossible to get infected by "malware" from a Wii disc image. (Unless you're using a really shitty computer, or Windows 8.) Two, you cannot boot a Wii disc in Dolphin, even if you have one of the LG drives that can read them, because those drives don't actually support the Wii disc format. The ripping programs exploit an error handler in the drive's firmware, which makes it possible to read the disc, but it's really slow. And three, we are NOT going to make them use "Vert-" crap because it is simply WRONG. I'm not discussing this any further. ---[[User:GerbilSoft|GerbilSoft]] 05:37, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

Move to GerbilSoft

Can someone please fix the capitalization in the title? It's GerbilSoft, not Gerbilsoft... --Dani 01:58, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

Done. - Hivebrain 02:17, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

If you need someone to do beta testing on the Windows build, btw, I'm more than happy to throw a few ROMs at it. Overlord 12:56, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

SSBB Character select screen

Could you do me a favor is replace the widescreen character selection screen you've took with this full-screen version of the character selection screen please?--Brandondorf9999 04:35, 7 June 2014 (UTC)

I've been considering replacing the widescreen Wii images I took a while ago with 4:3 versions, but that image you linked is *terrible*. 2560x1920 is upscaled (the textures are blurry), and there's a ton of empty space on the top and bottom in addition to the sides.
Either way, the best option is to retake a screenshot at 1x (640x480) in Dolphin (which I can't run anymore due to lack of a GL3-capable GPU). I will probably do this when I get a chance. ---GerbilSoft 04:38, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
I have a screenshot that you can use which isn't that bad. There's a screenshot that exists on neoseeker on the previous revisions of the screen which is located here. Why not try uploading that here so you don't have to take one?
I would like to see this magical Wii that can output a 1024x768 image. ---GerbilSoft 04:48, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
You have to configure that through dolphin emulator. It's better to actually upload it here. Also, 4:3 is supposed to have more top and bottom because it's a standard aspect ratio of which is cropped or uncropped from 16:9. Those empty spaces are part of the menu as they are made in model's so that the player doesn't see anything else on the bottom or top. If 640x480 is the native res you would like, you can try this instead.--Brandondorf9999 05:01, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
First off, that "new" screenshot is just one of the previous ones downscaled. There's no point in using it.
Second, if you actually owned a copy of Smash Bros. Brawl instead of using a pirated copy in Dolphin, you'd know that when the console is set to 4:3, there *isn't* extra space on the top and bottom. Instead, it simply doesn't have extra space on the sides. ---GerbilSoft 05:05, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, the game was supposed to also use a vert- screen change rather than a hor+ for widescreen and full-screen switching. You may want to use this tutorial on the wikihow website. It's better to use widescreen hack on Dolphin emulator rather than changing it in the general settings to 4:3. Try keeping the ratio on the general settings on 16x9, changing the aspect in the graphics menu to "Force 4:3" and put a check on "widescreen hack" on that box when emulating a 16x9 game in open matte rather than normal.--Brandondorf9999 05:21, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
It doesn't matter what sort of "fancy hacks" you can do with Dolphin. We use screenshots that match the original as close as possible, which means how it looks on the original console. ---GerbilSoft 05:24, 7 June 2014 (UTC)
