Nintendo's all-stars are ready to battle! Let the melee begin. Super Smash Bros Melee is an 2D Fighting Game released for the GameCube in 2001, and the best selling for its console. The game has 14 starter characters and a total of 25 characters(26 with Sheik) The game has new features such as: - Event Match - Adventure Mode - All-Star Mode - HRC(Home Run Contest) and Multi Man Melee. Super Smash Bros. Melee ISO (NTSC-U) Version:

Super Smash Bros. Melee, known in Japan as Great Melee Smash Brothers Deluxe (大乱闘スマッシュブラザーズDX, Dairantō Sumasshu Burazāzu Derakkusu), often abbreviated as SSBM or simply as Melee, is a crossover fighting game released for the Nintendo GameCube shortly after its launch in 2001.


Like its predecessor, Super Smash Bros. Melee differs from traditional fighting games in that inflicting the most damage does not guarantee victory. Instead, opposing players must inflict damage to add to the opponents percentage, to make them lighter, then force their opponents beyond the boundaries of the stage. Unlike other games of the same genre, in which moves are entered by button-input combinations, most moves in Super Smash Bros. Melee can be accessed via one-button presses and a joystick direction.

In addition to highly refining the gameplay of Super Smash Bros., Melee also sports additional stages and characters, and an expanded single player mode, called 'Adventure Mode'. The game also introduced many of the staples of its sequel, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Melee received universal acclaim from critics, and went on to become the best selling GameCube game of all time.

Saving Screenshots

Saving a screenshot in Camera Mode of Special Melee will just be a black image. You can fix this by turning off EFB Copies to Texture Only.


16:9 Aspect Ratio Fix

The built-in Widescreen Hack causes clipping issues. The following Gecko codes work as a replacement, causing fewer issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using these codes.


The NTSC version of this game has 3 different revisions. You can check the revision of your ISO by going into Game Properties.

Revision patch for Netplay

For netplay to work, each player must not only be playing the same game, but have the same revision of said game. However, Melee was sold in many different revisions, and this may block some players from participating in netplay. Your netplay ISO can be patched to other revisions to work around this issue. For details and instructions, see the Smashboards post on the subject.

Texture Pack

A fantastic beautiful texture pack keeps the original art style can be found here, Melee HD Texture Pack (Dolphin) (v1.01)

There have been many Melee texture packs over the years, so don't stop at the one linked above.

3.0-766Windows 8Intel Core i7-2600K @ 3.4GHzNVIDIA GeForce GTX 570So darn close. Sound glitches are non-existent so long as LLE audio is being used. Half-second pre-rendered cutscene audio lag. Stage 8 classic mode intro sprite alpha problem. Ever-so-slight stutters during certain cases. Examples include loading levels into memory, which doesn't break gameplay, and stuttering during 4-player on certain levels, which can. Fountain of Dreams is the prime case, likely due to the dynamic reflection map (quite a feat for its time on such hardware).Miranda

Using 'speed up disc transfer rate' makes all music play for 2-3 seconds and stop, but the game continues to run fine. Using any AR codes causes the game to crash after the beginning cutscene and before the 'press start' screen.

I get none of the issues listed above even when using NVIDIA w/ OpenGL except for the very minor lighting issues described in Termina Bay. It's possible all of the other issues were resolved with the recent graphics update.Darxide

4.0-5616Windows 7AMD FX-8350 @ 4GHzNVIDIA GeForce GTX 75060FPS on gameplay with some quick little frame stutters here and there. Menus and Victory screen may have frame drops but are fine otherwise. Was able to play up 4x native resolution but had to change audio to LLE recompiler. Major initial frame drop on 4x menu screen but it was fixed up after a battle.Combatheros
4.0-5752Windows 7Intel Core 2 QuadNVIDIA GeForce GT 120Perfect 60FPS, with some small hiccups when loading things (same with almost every game I play). Audio worked fine the first time I loaded it, but now the music cuts out after a few seconds, and I have no idea how to fix it.LotadTheGreat
4.0-5942Windows 7Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 @ 2.34GHzNVIDIA GeForce GT 120Perfect 60FPS still, and we still have that audio glitch. Also, whenever you start a battle, it freezes with this beeping noise, but still says it is running 60FPS. Unplayable.LotadTheGreat
