    I'm trying to use Dolphin to play my wii games and it's quite slow. I'm running it in Parallels w/ Windows 7. Any way to speed it up? I've got the frame limit off as recommended for slower computers. Any tips?

    And to answer your question, yes I'm playing backups of my own games. Dad bought a Wii for himself but always uses the TV the wii is hooked up to so I'm trying to play my games on the computer.

    What specs is your Mac?

    There probably is little you can do though because remember...you are running a windows emulation (on which will take a speed hit), and then that emulation is running ANOTHER emulation. :eek:

    Maybe if you bootcamp it you may have better results but it also depends on your machine as well.
