Changing your Wii and GameCube WAD game display names in the Dolphin emulator used to require a lot of text editing, but the Dolphin developers added a very useful feature in its most recent release. Dolphin can now change game names quickly and easily, keeping all of your games organised and easier to find.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the "Dolphin" emulator program on your computer and right-click the game with the name you want to change. The list of installed games is displayed on the main Dolphin window.

  2. 2

    Click the "Properties" option on the context menu that comes up. Click the "Edit Config" button on the game's properties page.

  3. 3

    Select the name on the config file that opens and enter in the new name that you want the game to be. Press the "ESC" key on the keyboard to exit the config file.

  4. 4

    Click "Save" when asked to save the new config file. Click "Close." The name change is now in effect.
