What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

The first loading screen for the News Channel doesn't appear correctly.

This is how it appears on an actual console:

Actual Console

However, on the emulator, only a magenta screen with squares appears.

Dolphin

The next loading screen, however, appears fine.

Loading Screen

Furthermore, the News, Forecast, and Photo Channels can flicker to a magenta screen when loading and exiting the Channel.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

[Reproduction steps here]

Load the News, Forecast or Photo Channel. Notice the magenta screen when loading or exiting (especially the one for the News Channel).

This problem occurs in 5.0-7982.

[Version number here]

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

No, it doesn't occur on the 5.0 stable version, but the loading squares for the News Channel don't appear.

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.)

[First broken version number here (if applicable)]

5.0-5874 seems to have broken (it was a pain to find the version).

The fifolog is attached as "fifonews.dff" (it's of the magenta loading screen).

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

macOS High Sierra, 2.66 GHz Intel Core i7, NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB Intel HD Graphics 288 MB, MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2009)

Someone running on Arch Linux also reported the problem.

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

No.

History

This is caused by having Store XFB Copies to Texture Only on. I suppose that these channels are lightweight enough that disabling that in the game INIs won't have a too big performance impact...

Yeah, I'd be fine with enabling XFB2RAM for this title.

magenta screen

This may be related to https://bugs.dolphin-emu.org/issues/11215 , as when switching DOLs from the main menu to prime 1/2, there will be a magenta screen.
