In this video, I go over the basic GameCube/Wii emulation setup for the Xbox Series X/S version of Retroarch. Back when Retroarch was the only way to do GameCube/Wii emulation it made more sense but now that there is a standalone build of Dolphin from Sir Mangler, that should be prioritized. But for anyone still wanting to use Retroarch, here is a basic rundown on getting your GameCube/Wii games running on it with the Dolphin Core.
