Emulator Issues #10536
Sonic Colors UI sometimes solid-fills with fog colour when not using Ubershaders
Sonic Colors - SNCE8P
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
2D UI elements sometimes solid-fill with what appears to be the fog colour. This occurs sometimes in menus and randomly during gameplay, but is consistently reproducible in the areas or situations where it occurs. Moving the cursor to some areas in the World Map, or having the camera in specific positions/angles during gameplay, can affect whether or not the UI is rendered normally or not.
Setting Ubershaders to Exclusive, or enabling the "Disable Fog" enhancement, or enabling the "Fast Depth Calculation" hack will cause the UI to render normally.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
As examples, both the World Map with Tropical Resort selected, and the Tropical Resort Area Map, are menus where the issue occurs consistently. A FIFO log of the latter situation is attached.
Is the issue present in the latest development version?
Which is the first broken version?

- Status changed from New to Duplicate
This is a dualcore bug in all likelihood - certain games will desync to the point where some effects end up rendering later. Ubershaders fixes it by not having it stutter inconsistently. Fast-depth resets the shaders as well.
