Star Fox Assault boot problems
Star Fox Assault (PAL/Europe)
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.
I'm on 5.0-9896 right now and wanted to play Star Fox Assault but the game doesn't boot.
I only get a black screen. I tried other backends and turning off FPRF but that didn't help.
All other games are working fine. So I used the bisect tool to track down the issue
and came up with two builds.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Starting the game will either give an invalid write message or the game doesn't boot at all.
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version?
Since 5.0-5874, Dolphin shows the error message "Invalid write to 0x01fe0202, PC=0x80130780" before booting the game.
Since 5.0-6568, the game doesn't boot at all and only shows a black screen.
I just tried immediately present XFB on 9002 but this didn't help. But I discovered something else: The build 6568 sets MMU as default.
When I deactivate it on 9002, the game boots again and works fine but still shows the error message I mentioned. So I guess the MMU might be the problem,
not the XFB.
By the way, I didn't encounter this issue with the NTSC-U version. It seems to apply to PAL only.
