What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

I created save states while testing other issues for this game. One was right before fighting the stage 1 boss, Winged Aparoid, and the other was immediately after beating it. The game is able to save progress when savestates weren't involved, but the attached image occurs if savestates are loaded after exiting emulation on Android. Occurred on both JIT and interpreter. Did not occur on Windows.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Complete stage 1 of Star Fox: Assault. The game INI needs to be added to Android for FPRF (See #10719)
  2. Create a savestate before fighting the boss or after defeating the boss. Allowing the game to progress without loading a savestate will not cause any problems.
  3. Exit emulation
  4. Restart emulation and load the savestate.
  5. Proceed to the results screen and observe the attached error on Android. This will not occur on Windows.

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

5.0-6033

Does switching between a GCI folder and a memory card file affect the issue?

#2 Updated by ryanebola16 over 2 years ago

Problem occurs with both GCI folder and memory card.

Huh, I wonder why it only happens on Android...

I think that the title should be changes as this issue affect more than a game (at leat both Star Fox and Super Mario Sunshine, but I suspect that there are a lot more)

Logcat didn't show any warn-level problems when this issue occurs in 5.0-6392.

I did find an easier way to reproduce it though:
1. In Star Fox: Assault, Start Menu -> OPTIONS -> USER SETTINGS
2. Select a stored player, which opens up controller setting options
3. In Dolphin, Create a save state
4. Restart emulation
5. Immediately load the save state
6. In Star Fox: Assault: Select a different controller setting
7. Record
8. Observe missing memory card

This will probably happen on desktop too, it's a really bad idea to write to a memcard and load a savestate from before the memory card was loaded. It's also apparently a bad idea to load a savestate before a memory card is initialized. I don't think Android is related to the issue in this case.

Weird, I thought I tested in on PC but I just reproduced this issue in 5.0-9224 on both PC and Android. Please remove the Android tag, thanks!
