Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker

Fylq

19 months ago

Computer Specifications ASUS Laptop MODEL E402MA
Processor: Quad Core Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU N3540 @2.16GHz
RAM: 8.00 GB (7.88 GB usable)
Graphics: Intel(R) HD Graphics (doesnt say what version???)
OS: WIndows 10 x64

Problem
So, I am currently running Ishiiruka-Dolphin 1063 (b823ae185). I want to play Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker at 30 FPS, that's all. The in-game benchmarks will be below. All I want to do is atleast get a constant 20+ FPS while playing. Please help me squeeze out that last bit of FPS that I need.

In-Game Benchmarks
Title Screen: Min: 18.18 FPS Avg: 24.78 FPS High: 30.32 FPS
File Selection: Min: 29 FPS Avg: 30 FPS High: 31 FPS
Outdoors: Min: 16 FPS Avg: 21 FPS High: 25 FPS
Indoors: Min: 28 FPS Avg: 30 FPS High: 31 FPS

Sometimes when the game gets really intense (boss fights) the fps drops to 6. Also, sometimes when outside, the FPS drops to about 12-19 FPS

The FPS should be around what you should be getting in that emulator with integrated Intel graphics. There's not much you can do besides:

  • Getting new hardware
  • Buying an external GPU enclosure if you have thunderbolt
  • Turning down your resolution and graphics settings
  • Closing all other programs

The GPU is the least of OP's problems. Dolphin is almost wholly dependent on the CPU; you can run it 1080p 60FPS using Intel HD graphics, if you have a fast enough CPU (like a Skylake i3, or a good clockspeed Haswell chip, etc). Although a modest GPU like a GT 730 is recommended.

The problem is the low-power Haswell-era Pentium that OP is running.

Agreed. The emulation relies a decent CPU.

You're running a laptop, there isn't a whole lot you can do. Google some optimization guides for the Dolphin emulator on low power hardware, there are millions of YouTube videos about this.

I read that completely wrong the first time I read it.... I don't think I can say it either
