I was going to play some Blaster Master WiiWare version, but it freezes up on launch. Is this a limitation of the Dolphin core, or is there a trick to getting it running? Thanks for the help.
I believe at least some Wiiware works, e.g. Mega Man 9 and 10, but any that require the ‘dual core’ option will crash, including Contra and Castlevania Rebirth.
Ah ok… thanks for that. The Blaster Master must be a dual core. Do they just load like a normal Wii image?
I believe so, yeah. Just load the wad.
On the off-chance that someone comes to this thread at some point in the internet future for information… Blaster Master will work… I just had a weird problem from changing a symlink directory into a normal directory at some point.
Sorry for the trouble, hunter.
Currently, both Blaster Master & Castlevania Rebirth crash retroarch on load for me with the same error:

Yeah, those are both examples of the ‘dual core’ problem.
