Emulator Issues #11897
Sonic Colors fails to render 2D elements on OpenGL ES only
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
According to https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-sonic-colors-gui-elements-missing, 2D elements in Sonic Colors are not visible when using OpenGL ES. OpenGL and Vulkan work correctly.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Looking at the title screen is probably the easiest way to reproduce the problem.
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development 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.)
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
I don't have the game myself, so I can't create a FIFO log or screenshots, but they happen to already exist from back when this was broken on more than OpenGL ES: https://fifoci.dolphin-emu.org/dff/soniccolors-mm/
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
The reporter specified that it happens both on Linux (with PreferGLES = True) and Android (Adreno).
