Anyone ever play around with the Dolphin emulator for Wii? Wondering if I need a Wiimote or is there ways to map the buttons & such.

 

Rune Factory is apparently working very well on it, just wondering if it'd be easy to set up & play. https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=Rune_Factory:_Tides_of_Destiny

I'm fairly certain you'll need a "Dolphin Bar" (a Wii motion sensor bar that connects to PC) and a wiimote. But I'm not sure if it has alternative methods of emulation motion controls.

Seems like there are alternatives, but likely not the best.

Frankly I've been meaning to get a Dolphin Bar so I can play Wii games more easily. I just keep putting it off.

You can emulate the Wii remote or any other standard input device compatible with the Wii using the keyboard, mouse, or a USB/Bluetooth keyboard gamepad. If you plan on playing games that utilize motion controls, it's possible to play without a Wii remote, but would be much better if you paired a real one via Bluetooth. You can emulate the Wii remote pointer with the mouse, but if you're already using a real Wii remote you might as well use a sensor bar as well. You don't need any particular brand (such as "dolphin bar"), any battery or USB powered one will work (even the one that comes with a real Wii would work, if you really wanted to leave your Wii powered on alongside your computer). "Sensor Bar" is a misnomer as it actually contains no sensors - it just houses a pair of infrared LED lights which the Wii remote's built in IR sensor picks up and uses to triangulate it's position.
