This is a timing issue. During the black screen phase, the game expects a game tick to take at least
(TIMEBASE_FREQUENCY/1000) TB ticks (which means the TB tick difference must be greater than 0xed4e).
On Dolphin, the value is always around 0x7000 (<0xed4e) so the game never continues.
Downclocking the emulated CPU works around this cycle accuracy issue as it makes a game tick take longer to complete.
