    Hey,

    are there any plans to support Wii emulation on RetroPie? The Raspberry Pi 1 probably isn’t powerful enough for it, but what about the Raspberry Pi 2?
    It seems that Dolphin supports the ARMv7 architecture, so I think it’s theoretically possible to get it to work, isn’t it?

    Do you think it’s worth giving it a try? Do you have any plans for it?

    best regards

    I doubt it very much. I think even Gamecube emulation is out of the question.

    Theoretically possible but way, way too slow. The only ARM chipset I’m aware of that can run Dolphin is the Tegra K1, and it’s far, far more powerful than a Pi 2.

    That’s the same for both Wii and Gamecube emulation. They’re essentially the same hardware.
