Emulator Issues #11198
News Channel loading screen broken
Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab)
MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab, MD5 Hash: Compute)
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:
However, on the emulator, only a magenta screen with squares appears.
The next loading screen, however, appears fine.
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)
