Hello,

Is there any way I can play my Gamecube through my PC, or through the monitor? I don't particularly want to have to lug my television down to uni with me, so it would be useful if there's a way of playing through the PC.


thanks

Is your PC a laptop or desktop?

This is not possible. What is possible, is using Dolphin emulator to emulate your gamecube games on your PC. In order to do this, you must burn your gamecube games as .isos and save them on your PC to load into Dolphin emulator. Dolphin is the best way to play games released back in this era on PC as PCSX2 (the PS2 emulator) is a dogshit software that refuses to work on anything

Maybe a SCART to HDMI cable/converter would work, though would probably introduce lag. Or as someone says, use Dolphin. Vimm's Lair has a good selection of games already in the correct format.

Because retro consoles are still fun and there's a decent community around them.

Mad how sixth generation consoles are now classed as retro. The PS2 and the family Windows XP computer were my childhood back in the day.

I’m not sure if its classed as “retro” but I just ordered a Xbox 360 from eBay as I found a good deal. I do have the latest Xbox but not all games are backwards compatible so bought a 360.

Fun spoilsport fact: 'retro' doesn't mean 'something old', but means something newer that harkens back to something older.

Sonic 2 isn't retro, but Sonic Mania is. A song from the 80s isn't retro (unless it was done in a style of an even older decade), but 2020's Blinding Lights by The Weeknd is.

The reason it gets mixed up when talking about games is because the act of playing on something older can be considered retro, because it's recreating an activity from older times.
