[GAME] Dolphin emulator works without JIT
« on: April 05, 2020, 07:10:36 am »
Dolphin emulator can be compiled on any LE platform. Because of lacking JIT, the performance is dreadful.

The dev team is not so much interested in support ppc64le at this stage because they do not have access to a workstation.

The JIT could probably be a very thin layer. I wonder if it's even KVM-mable.

What do you mean when you say 'KVM-able'?

That it could be run using KVM-PR. There's probably some instructions that need to be added, though.

I am not clued in on the subject but wouldn't there theoretically be less work to translate instructions for CG/Wii as they were also powerpc based?
