What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

While in the "Select Car" screen, the screen will flicker wildly between a 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratio post Hybrid XFB. This does not happen when "Immediately Present XFB" is selected. It seems to be tied with the rendering of the car model spinning in place, since if you hold the car in place on the select screen using the c-stick, it will stick to one aspect ratio.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Start game, select single race or any stage that lets you select from multiple cars, then wait for the car model to load in. The aspect ratio will start changing rapidly as soon as the car is present.

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, 5.0-6197.

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

No, it doesn't happen in 5.0.

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version?

I bisected it to 5.0-5874 (Hybrid XFB)

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:

I don't know if I just have brain damage or what, but even recording just a 3 frame fifolog of the car spinning ended up being 26mb, so it's over the upload cap.

What are your PC specifications?

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

  • Status changed from New to Accepted

This is because the game renders the cars in one aspect ratio and the UI in another... we need to update the heuristic.

This should be retested as it is probably fixed by:
