Description

Game Name?

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab)

RSBE01

MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab, MD5 Hash: Compute)

Wiimms ISO Tools edited ISO, works fine on both Dolphin and real Wii. Only the music files were edited.

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Post https://dolphin-emu.org/download/dev/master/5.0-1808/, Dolphin becomes unresponsive when pausing emulation while a panic handler message is on screen. It needs to be force-closed. Reproduced with the panic handlers from #9584 (use 5.0-540 or later) and the known Brawlex issue where the game crashes when backing out to the title screen.

Before https://dolphin-emu.org/download/dev/master/5.0-1808/, panic handler messages would prevent pause from being pressed. This may just have hidden the underlying issue though.

This should probably be tested on a different game but I don't know how to induce panic handler messages in other ones.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Observer a panic handler message
  2. Pause emulation
  3. Attempt to press exit emulation or press things on the main emulator window

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes, 5.0-5667

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

No, 5.0

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

5.0-1808

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

Win 10 Pro x64
Intel Core i7-4702MQ CPU @2.20GHz
GeForce GT 750M
GeForce Game Ready Driver 387.92

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)

Panic handlers have a lot of room for improvement :-(
