Emulator Issues #9999
Skip BIOS checkbox is supposed to be disabled when there are no BIOS files
The "Skip BIOS" checkbox in the GameCube tab of the general config is only supposed to be enabled when a BIOS file is available (and the core isn't running): https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/blob/bfa9cc27361415a78ddb366764be6f929bf78d6a/Source/Core/DolphinWX/Config/GameCubeConfigPane.cpp#L74
However, https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/4427/commits/bfa9cc27361415a78ddb366764be6f929bf78d6a made it so that the checkbox always is enabled as long as the core isn't running, ignoring the BIOS file check.

As a note to anyone who wants to fix this: Due to https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/5492#issuecomment-306988942, it should be possible to enable skipping when there's no IPL file, but it shouldn't be possible to disable skipping when there's no IPL file. (Before the 5.0-1259 regression, it was always impossible to change the setting when there was no IPL file.)
