Emulator Issues #11902
Odd shadow effect in Chibi-Robo caused by 8x MSAA
Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Info tab)
MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Verify tab, Verify Integrity button)
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
8x MSAA causes some odd, large shadow effect to appear at a distance. 4x MSAA and below do not cause this, however.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Run the game with 4x MSAA or below, and see that the image is fine. Switch to 8x MSAA, and then the weird shadow effect will appear.
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
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.)
[First broken version number here (if applicable)]
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
Fifologs just barely exceeded the 5 MB limit, so I uploaded them here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AtgUqyTUC1I1g44RnB9tXi2pE31xYw?e=2TQB1X
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
Screenshots are attached showing a comparison between 4x MSAA and 8x MSAA. The effect is visible on the upper left area of the screenshot, though it is more prominent when moving about the house in gameplay. Fifologs are included in the above link, one for 4x MSAA and 8x MSAA as well.
