The Dolphin game software sometimes does not display any frames per second during game play. This means that when you start a game using Dolphin, the game window is displayed, but there is no video in the window. The common culprit of a no FPS problem is improper settings within the Dolphin program.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the Dolphin program and click the "Config" button on the main Dolphin software menu. The main Dolphin configurations menu is displayed.

  2. 2

    Disable "Dual Core" by clicking the box next to it, thus unchecking it. This is a common problem with Dolphin users who see some of their games not display at all when starting them. Using a dual-core set-up is not always optimal for games.

  3. 3

    Do the same for the "Idle Skipping" option on the main configurations menu. This box will also be checked/enabled by default. This is another common problem as idle skipping prevents the program from running at the Wii's default clock speed. This could prevent faster displays.

  4. 4

    Click "OK" to save the settings. When you start the game it will now display a proper frames-per-second rate.
