How to install Texture Packs in Dolphin

Installing and Loading Texture Packs

All textures must be within a folder that contains the Game ID of the game you are installing the pack for or the region free 3-letter equivalent. Usually the texture pack maintainer will distribute the pack using the proper Game ID. If the entire Game ID is used, it will limit the pack to that region. If the textures are not in a folder that is named properly, then the pack will not work! To check the ID of your disc image, right click the game in the Dolphin browser, click Properties, open the Info tab, and the ID will be listed next to “Game ID”.

Instructions:

  1. Verify that the main texture pack folder is named to the proper Game ID or the first 3 letters.
  2. Place the texture pack into the global Dolphin directory: C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Dolphin Emulator\Load\Textures
  3. Open Dolphin emulator.
  4. Enter Graphics > Advanced tab > Check Load Custom Textures.

Performance Options: Prefetch Custom Textures - Caches textures in RAM when game is loaded. May reduce stuttering. Found on Graphics\Advanced tab.

Examples:

Xenoblade Chronicles region free ID. The path to the textures should be… C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Dolphin Emulator\Load\Textures\SX4

Xenoblade Chronicles (USA) Game ID is SX4E01. To limit textures to USA only the path should be… C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Dolphin Emulator\Load\Textures\SX4E01

Xenoblade Chronicles (PAL) Game ID is SX4P01. To limit textures to Europe only the path should be… C:\Users\UserName\Documents\Dolphin Emulator\Load\Textures\SX4P01

Note: If the texture pack does not appear to be “working”, it could be that you need to increase the internal resolution! Higher resolutions require a more powerful system. Graphics > Enhancements tab > Internal Resolution.
