Recommended settings for making Dolphin on android work for the GPD XD+:
- Internal storage/dolphin-emu/Config--> Dolphin.ini file
- EMULATION SPEED: 1.00000000
- FRAMESKIP: 0x00000000
- OVERCLOCK: 0.9
- SYNCGPUOVERCLOCK: 3.00000000
You can enter the above settings through any type of file explorer app from the google play store such as ES FILE EXPLORER or CX FILE EXPLORER, etc. Also, utilize the OPENGL
video renderer instead of Vulkan. Although XD+ has the capability of running Vulkan, this video renderer has not completely been optimized to run for Android devices off of Dolphin.
Recommended Dolphin emulator build used: 5.0-4525Reason for this build?
Answer: Many of the more recent Android builds available off of the dolphin emulator website utilize an extremely heavy amount of resources from the O.S. & video renderer(s) that aren't fully utilized by earlier builds... resulting in slower fps. Earlier builds use less resources, resulting in the higher framerates. Also, the newer builds seem to prevent many games from even loading on Android no matter which settings/preferences are selected prior to running any game. Again, it is recommended to use that build above for many, if not all, games for Gamecube emulation. Enjoy!
