Emulator Issues #11246
Metroid Prime 3 crashes sometimes after closing the map
Metroid Prime 3 (Metroid Prime Trilogy)
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.
Sometimes after closing the map after you're given a mission or a location tip, the game will have a long stutter that makes me feel as if the emulator is screaming at me for daring play this game, and sometimes after that stutter Dolphin will just close. No error or anything, it just throws me out of the game, as if it was tired of my crap. This has happened twice to me. I've also screamed twice.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Play Prime 3, receive a mission location (this part might be unrelated, but both crashes have been after receiving mission data and getting the map opened automatically, not after opening the map manually), close the map, watch your screen suddenly transition from a beautiful game called Metroid Prime 3: Corruption to your stupid desktop, get pissed at your lost progress.
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
I don't know.
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.)
I'm not sure how to test an apparently rare crash like this.
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
Again, not sure how to record a fifolog of this, considering the crash is random and Dolphin just closes.
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
i7 6700k 4.2 GHz
Nvidia GTX 1070 8 GB (latest drivers)
16 GB DDR4 RAM
Windows 10 64 Bits
Vulkan backend, asynchronous ubershaders, GPU texture decoding enabled to avoid stutters when opening doors.
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
My savefile I guess, as I got this last crash not too long after saving. I got the location of the mission sent to me, pressed 1 to open the map, closed it, bam, crash. This save data is for the PAL version of Metroid Prime Trilogy.
