Description

Game Name?

1,000,000 Dollar Pyramid - SP3E41

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

I have the U.S. version of the game, and ripped my U.S. NAND from my Wii. That's great, right? Well, Dolphin can't use the sysconf from my Wii, so I deleted it and Dolphin generated its own. Fine. But it also generates a country, namely switzerland! This game actually checks the country name for which Wiimote Strap Screen it loads. So, if I'm set to Switzerland, my U.S. disc tries to load the eu_en strap screen, and since that's not included on the U.S. version, it crashes!

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Load this game on a generated Wii NAND in Dolphin.
To fix it, install whatever you need to get the system menu booting, and change your country to a NTSC one.

Which versions of Dolphin did you test on? Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which versions of Dolphin used to work?

5.0-2224

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

Core i5-3570K, GTX 1070, Windows 10

Is there any other relevant information? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files)

"Warning: DVDOpen(): file 'strapscreens_eu_en/strapscreen_eu_en.hdr' was not found under /"

This isn't a regression as far as I know, as Dolphin has never been able to fully handle console SYSCONFs properly.

The SysConf rewrite should allow that: https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/5638

Because this is ubisoft, it's absolutely possible this is a form of anti-piracy.

This apparently also effects "Hollywood Squares" SHWE41.
