  • Step 1: Rip your own games from your Wii or GameCube discs. This is the legal and recommended way to get ROMs for Dolphin emulator. You need to have a Wii console with a modded firmware that allows you to run homebrew applications. You also need a SD card or a USB drive with enough space to store your games. Then, you need to follow these steps:



  • Download CleanRip , a homebrew application that lets you rip your games from your discs.



  • Copy CleanRip to your SD card or USB drive and insert it into your Wii.



  • Launch the Homebrew Channel on your Wii and select CleanRip from the list of applications.



  • Follow the instructions on the screen and insert your game disc when prompted.



  • CleanRip will start ripping your game and create an ISO file on your SD card or USB drive.



  • Repeat the process for each game you want to rip.



  • Transfer the ISO files from your SD card or USB drive to your PC.



  • Step 2: Download ROMs from reputable websites. This is an alternative way to get ROMs for Dolphin emulator, but it may not be legal in some countries or regions. You should only download ROMs for games that you own legally and that are not protected by copyright laws. You should also avoid websites that offer illegal or unsafe ROMs that may contain viruses or malware. Some examples of websites that offer legal and safe ROMs for Dolphin emulator are:



  • Vimm's Lair : This website has a large collection of GameCube and Wii ROMs that are verified by Redump , a project that aims to preserve the quality and accuracy of disc-based games.



  • The Eye : This website has a huge archive of various types of files, including GameCube and Wii ROMs that are also verified by Redump.



  • RomsMania : This website has a decent selection of GameCube and Wii ROMs that are scanned by ClamAV , an open-source antivirus software.



Step 3: Place the ROMs in a folder of your choice and scan them with Dolphin. After you get your ROMs, you need to organize them in a folder of your choice on your PC. You can name the folder anything you want, such as "Dolphin Games" or "GCN/Wii ROMs". Then, you need to scan them with Dolphin so that they appear in the emulator's game list. Here's how you can do it:


  • Step 1: Open Dolphin and click on the Browse button. This button is located at the top right corner of the main window and has a folder icon. It will open a file explorer window where you can navigate to the folder where you stored your ROMs.



  • Step 2: Select the folder and click on Select Folder. This will add the folder to Dolphin's list of paths and scan it for ROMs. You will see a progress bar at the bottom of the main window showing the scanning process.



  • Step 3: Wait for the scanning to finish and enjoy your games. After the scanning is done, you will see your games appear in the game list with their titles, covers, and ratings. You can sort them by name, platform, size, or rating.
