Recently I've been playing The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker emulated with Dolphin-emu. It's not the first time I've done it, but this time I decided to check if it was possible to experience the full game. On the Nintendo GameCube, you could actually connect a GameBoy Advance into a controller port, and have some additional features in the game. The Wind Waker is a game that makes use of this, but I have never had the chance to try it out. When I had a GC many many years ago, I didn't have a GBA. It turns out that the dolphin-emulator actually lets you do this linking! In dolphin-emu I had to set the second controller to "GBA", and then just launch the game. Then I start up VBA-m (the visualboyadvance-m) emulator, which emulates GB, GBC, and GBA. Set it to launch with a GBA BIOS file, which you need to have. And then there is a link option in the emulator settings, and just have it link to localhost (127.0.0.1), and launch the bios file. I could suddenly access all the additional content! Not that it was much, but it still was so satisfying to be able to make full use of all the in-game features. I never knew that these emulators could do this before now, so for me this was a huge discovery, and a game changer!
