Tip: If it's possible to carry a tileset-specific sprite (such as a Buzzy Beetle or Bob-omb) through a pipe, make sure it has the correct graphics and sprite palette on the other side!
Dolphin Emulator Keeps Crashing

I downloaded dolphin and I downloaded, the legend of zelda twilight princess for gamecube. So when I click it, it goes to the emulation screen, then it turns off. I have updated DirectX to the latest update. I also configured the emulator a bit and it still crashes. Please anyone help thanks. BTW I am using Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit.
How fast is your computer?

Also, note that Dolphin is by no means finished yet. It may not even play TP. You could try checking out their forums. Where did you download it?
What version are you using?
I am using Dolphin SVN revision 3402
I downloaded TP on Bittorent
The rom came in like 14 parts, so I just selected one part and tried to run it, I guess that is the reason why.
But now it loads then it gives me a black screen and nothing happens.
You're using a very old version of Dolphin.

I randomly found a much higher version of Dolphin. Dolphin 4770

Also, the Direct3D9 plugin might make the game run faster, the standard plugin is OpenGL, which makes the game run slow.

And as Kieran said, Twilight Princess might not even be able to run perfectly yet. I don't know, since I don't have the .ISO of it.
Oh wow, I was that behind. LOL I will try it thanks


Edit: I keep getting this error everytime when I run a ISO.

That is because you're using OpenGL probably. Try using Direct3D9. I can't find it anywhere now, but it should be somewhere on Microsoft.com if I am correct.
You are mistaken. The Direct3D plugin may or may not be present in your Dolphin package. I recall they were having some problems with it. You should check out your plugin settings.

Also, make sure that you have the latest graphics drivers.

I would still like to know your system specifications to see if you even have a chance of getting it running.

That's probably your problem. Make sure all the parts are in one folder, and extract the contents of the first part with Winrar/7zip

Oh sorry about that I never noticed that you wanted me to tell you my specs. Anyways here they are:

Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) 64 Processor 3500+ 2.2 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 2.00GB
System Type: 64-Bit Operating System
Operating System: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

It is most likely my processor's 2.20 GHz thats making Dolphin not load any roms.

Yeah, I probably need to extract everything then combine all the ISO into one big one, therefore it could load the ROM.

EDIT: Here are the specs that are set in the dolphin emulator

It seems more likely that your graphics card is the source of the trouble. Do you have any specs on that?
My video card specs (If they are specs) are:
Name: NVIDIA GeForce 6150 LE (Microsoft Corporation - WDDM)
Driver Date: 5/14/2009 May 14th 09
Driver Version: 8.15.11.8593
Those are not specs.
Tell us your Graphic Card Specs and Random Access Memory Capabilty e.g. My Graphics card is 1.4Ghz and I have 612mb of RAM

A 6150 LE? There's no way that is powerful enough. I have one of those cards in my work machine (well mine's a 6200) and it can't handle TF2 at above 20 fps. Don't know if that is your problem, but it definitely will be down the line.

EDIT -
Not that I'd play TF2 at work or anything :/

@DesertFox: Scroll to my second post of this thread, and there is the info.
@anclunn: I kinda thought it was my video card, I still have yet to combine all the ISO's into one large ISO.
