What's the problem?

Every Zelda ucode game will randomly hang at startup on Windows when using the LLE recompiler DSP emulation option.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Select the LLE recompiler DSP emulation engine and boot any Zelda ucode game. After a few tries the game will eventually hang on startup. (It seems to be random) This bug seemingly only occurs on Windows.

What are your PC specifications?

Windows 10
Intel i7-6700K
nVidia GTX 1070

Is there any other relevant information?

This bug occurs specifically on Windows with the DSP LLE audio emulation option and only affects Zelda ucode games.

History

#1 Updated by Zewia about 2 years ago

Edit: I made a simple program to reproduce this bug. To use it set no prompt on close and have the title selected in the game list.

#2 Updated by Techjar about 2 years ago

I'll pass on running that dubious executable.

Are you using a DSP ROM dumped from a console, or the included developer-created DSP ROM?

#3 Updated by Techjar about 2 years ago

Ok, yeah, something is definitely screwy on Windows. I reproduced it with both dumped and included DSP ROMs. Dual Core makes no difference. Was not able to reproduce it on Linux.

#4 Updated by Techjar about 2 years ago

Forgot to add: only occurs with LLE Recompiler. LLE Interpreter works fine.

#5 Updated by Zewia about 2 years ago

Is there anything else I'd need to add?

#8 Updated by Miksel12 about 1 month ago

I couldn't reproduce this issue on the latest master with W10 2004 and dumped DSP, tried about 20 times with Sunshine.

#9 Updated by JMC4789 about 1 month ago

Try this on Wind Waker, I was definitely having it happen last time I checked this.

#10 Updated by Miksel12 about 1 month ago

I don't have Wind Waker unfortunately.
