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? (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.)

dolphin-master-5.0-10888-x64

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

See attached screenshots.

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

i9-9900K, Radeon VII, Win10 1809

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

I cannot reproduce this.

Tracked it down to \Documents\Dolphin Emulator\Wii\shared2\sys\SYSCONF.

See attachments.

#3 Updated by rlnilsen 10 months ago

"SYSCONF good" is from 10910.
"SYSCONF bad" is from a well used 10192 install. It has been modified somehow as an original 10192 "SYSCONF" is equal to "SYSCONF good".

"SYSCONF bad" seems to work with 10886 and older but not 10888 and newer (as originally described really).

Corruption? Some setting that doesn't work with 10888 and newer?

#4 Updated by rlnilsen 10 months ago

Just one more thing I noticed.

With "SYSCONF bad" on 10886 the window title says "FPS: 50 - VPS: 50" (see dolphin-master-5.0-10886-x64.png).
With "SYSCONF good" on 10886 the window title says "FPS: 60 - VPS: 60".

PAL vs NTSC?

#5 Updated by rlnilsen 10 months ago

I have pinpointed the settings that cause this issue. If you enable progressive scan and disable PAL60 mode on 10888, Visual Controller Test is broken with a black screen. On 10886 the issue does not exist.

I believe this commit is the culprit:
https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/commit/71ff97cf1cf6ccaed34826a8f8d14cad0e292d7c

#6 Updated by Pikachu025 10 months ago

Does it work if you disable PAL60 and also disable Progressive? 50Hz progressive is not a valid setting on real consoles, you can only do 50Hz interlaced, 60Hz interlaced, or 60Hz progressive.

#7 Updated by rlnilsen 10 months ago

Yes, that works.
