What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

The game hangs when signing into Nintendo Wi-Fi connection. The attached screenshot shows the moment where the game hangs.
Console NAND or Dolphin NAND.

DJ Hero successfully connects online on a real console (same console NAND used in Dolphin). The servers are still up as of today, matchmaking works, etc.
Getting ingame in Dolphin requires moving/deleting clientca.pem, clientcakey.pem, and rootca.pem - meaning no online features are available.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Follow the Wii network guide (https://dolphin-emu.org/docs/guides/wii-network-guide/) or dump a NAND and extract the network certificates.
Boot the game, Press Start, the game will hang when connecting online.

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, 5.0-10758

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Oops, forgot to actually test the latest version.
Issue is present in 5.0-10912.

#2 Updated by shockdudeX 10 months ago

To be more clear: DJ Hero is unplayable without moving the *.pem files. Connecting online is one of the first things the game does after Press Start, and with *.pem files the game will hang.

It sounds similar to the issue I have with Goldeneye and I assume both are using demonware server. I'm going to investigate.

If you open a Chrome web browser before opening Dolphin:

  • Is the Chrome web browser crashing at the same time the game is crashing on Dolphin?
  • Does it produce a BYOD (DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE) when you shutdown Windows?

If so, I'm able to reproduce with Goldeneye.

When we investigated this last, we were unable to solve it before running out of time. I bet it's something stupid.

I can't replicate any Chrome browser crash or BSOD with DJ Hero.

Tested 5.0-11873. The game progresses a few frames after attempting to connect online, but still hangs afterward.
Note that the DJ Hero online servers were shut down earlier this year. Expected behavior is that the connection times out and you reach the menus.
When stopping emulation, Dolphin shows a dialog box that says: 'A "IPCEvent" event was scheduled from the wrong thread (CPU).'
Log attached.
