The issue will become apparent upon entering a race
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
2.4Ghz Core i5, Iris Plus Graphics 655, MacOS 10.14.6
This issue also occurs on Android on my Nubia RedMagic 5g on Dolphin 5.0-12247. It appears exactly as the attached video in the OP, where most of the terrain is colored black. I'm not sure which graphics API is being used on my device.
Also worth noting, this only appears in the Air Ride and City Trial modes. The menu, opening cutscene, movies, and Top Ride all appear to render normally. The games Super Mario Sunshine and Pacman World 2 also appear to render normally.
