What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Dolphin crashes when closing

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Load a game (backend agnostic), close the game window, close the Dolphin window, now a crash dialog pops up

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes, dolphin-master-5.0-10599-x64

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Happened to me ON and OFF on Dolphin history

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 and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

It came back a few dev versions before the MotionPlus merge, during version 10000-10100

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

Operating System: Windows 7 x64 SP1
CPU: Intel i5-4670K
GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1070

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

OpenGL or DX11 indistinctly, Dual Core enabled or disabled. Using VSync.

Does it only happen when using that theme, or is it just that you haven't tested without that theme?

I'm testing currently, but I don't think so. Happens on Wii (I'm using a nand dump on the Wii Dolphin folder), not so in GameCube Dolphin folder.

I wonder if this is some Windows 7 behavior. If you were to compile Dolphin and run it, we'd be able to get a stack trace. It's possible this is related to libUSB issues too, which may be resolved by

#5 Updated by eckso 9 months ago

I'm still testing and I'm not getting crashes, today I will test some more. Basically I disabled the theme skin for my Wii Dolphin setup, and enabled on my GC Dolphin setup (where I rarely if ever get crashes).

#6 Updated by eckso 9 months ago

Just got a crash on the Wii setup without the theme skin, I think it has to do with the Nand (I'm using a dump from my Wii) or maybe Qt on Windows7.

I think it might be related to uncapping FPS (Disable Frame limit) which I use to fast forward frequently.
