#2 Updated by Oibaf about 1 month ago

I have the same issue with dolphin 5.0-11723-x64. The issue only happens with English language and "GPU texture decoding" enabled (and maybe with a Nvidia GPU).

It seems that the GPU have problems in decoding the texture of the content warning screen (tex1_640x480_f1e7743b995abbfe_1.png).
There are several solutions to fix it:

1) Use another system Language
2) Disable GPU Texture decoding (you can enable it after the warning screen is loaded)
3) Dump the content warning texture of another language, rename it as tex1_640x480_f1e7743b995abbfe_1.png, put this texture under load/texture/RBHP08 and enable "load custom texture" in advanced setting.

I downloaded the latest Dolphin (5.0-12097) and deleted the Config directory from My Documents to get a 'clean' install with default settings.

1) Set the Wii and Dolphin to French
I set Dolphin, GameCube and Wii to French. The game worked!
I set Dolphin and GameCube to English, Wii to French. The game worked!
So a different language works, regardless if 'GPU Texture Decoding (Fast)' is enabled or disabled.

2) Disable GPU Texture decoding (you can enable it after the warning screen is loaded)
English version still freezes with 'GPU Texture Encoding' disabled. Leaving it on, set to 'Fast' or 'Safe', made no difference (freezing, obviously).

3) Dump the content warning texture of another language, rename it as tex1_640x480_f1e7743b995abbfe_1.png, put this texture under load/texture/RBHP08 and enable "load custom texture" in advanced setting.
The texture loading trick isn't working for me.
I dumped the French texture, and dumped the English texture (which it manages to do before freezing). Renamed the French texture to the English name. Ticked 'Load Custom Textures'. Ran the game... Game still freezes.
Created a new image in Photoshop, at the same size as the English texture dump (640x480 at 72dpi). Renamed the new texture to the English name. Reaplced the previous, ran the game... Game still freezes.

My desktop has an AMD CPU and an nVidia GPU. The English screen crashes in all renderers (except I didn't test Null). Even the Software Renderer!
I decided to test on my laptop, which has an Intel CPU with integrated GPU (Intel HD Graphics 515). Same fresh Dolphin (5.0-12097), same ISO rip... the same problems and solutions apply. Maybe it's not an exclusive nVidia bug?
