"Dolphin" is a program, available on the personal computer, that acts as an emulator for Nintendo GameCube hardware. Because of this, you must configure a device to act as a GameCube controller when using the software. With the help of the Dolphin program's "GC Pad" menu, you can easily configure a keyboard, mouse or external controller to work with the software.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the "Dolphin" program on your PC. Select the "GCPad" option in the program's menu bar. This will open the GC Pad menu.

  2. 2

    Select the button underneath the word "Device" in the GC Pad menu, and select the device you wish to use as your GC Pad. While you can use a mouse, a keyboard or external controller is preferable. After choosing the device, the configuration menu will open.

  3. 3

    Select the button in the configuration menu that exists on the GameCube controller, then press the button on your device that you wish to correspond to the GameCube controller button. For example, select the "A" button in the configuration menu, then press the "Tab" key on your keyboard to make that button correspond to the "A" button.

  4. 4

    Select the "OK" button when you have configured your device. Begin playing a game on your Dolphin, using whichever device you have chosen as a GameCube controller.
