Description

Game Name?

Nickelodeon Party Blast

Game ID?

GN9E70

MD5 Hash?

5dc69a828717d8a2f1822c010084eb3a (confirmed with redump)

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Text in the menus displays with a very faint black border around each character, with no way I could find to resolve it.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Mash start/A until you're in the menu after the first loading screen, and the game will asks you about autosaving and which memory card slot to use, those menus should have bugged text.

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, 5.0-6106.

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Yes, 5.0 also has the same problem.

If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer

I attached a fifolog of the load save screen, since this has the most text on it it's the clearest to see there. Here's a screenshot of how the fifo log looks for me: https://i.gyazo.com/4b9c15057935e19ce93dd9716921465b.png

What are your PC specifications?

Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB, Windows 10

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

Here's some footage of the game being played on console, where you can see no black boxes around the text (skip to 1:43 or so): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CehVKbjaw7Y

This may be the same as the numerous other tile edge issues reported in 6833 initially related to Blaster Master Overdrive.

I've tested in 5.0-15478 and this bug doesn't appear to exist anymore

It's still happening for me.

Can you screenshot what running the fifolog attached above displays for you?

Okay I got it you must be running it at a higher IR. It doesn't appear to happen with a higher IR than native.

I have a feeling this issue happens on console, I looked up a longplay running on original hardware and I'm pretty sure it was happening there too.

Indeed, but here's a fifolog in any case. I also went ahead and tested with native IR settings, and the bug does appear in that mode.

Regular IR
Higher IR
