What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

[The problem is that when you tried to play chapter two already when the timer is on the tree about to explode.When the robot appears after the curtain falls, the game freezes and has tried everything and nothing happens, it always freezes, try what you try. The FPS drop to 0 and I know it stays there.]

What steps will reproduce the problem?

[I have the 101 punnies I think they are called that and the explosion timer is activated and when you get to the entrance a kinematics comes out so to speak of the old woman and the X does not know her name very well and stops the timer then a robot appears and just as the battle begins the curtain goes down freezes down to 0fps and a strange noise sounds, the game runs me at 50fps stable at 480p is the PAL version.]

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 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:

[Attach any fifologs if possible, write a description of fifologs and screenshots here to assist people unfamiliar with the game.]

What are your PC specifications?

[AMD A4-3400 APU with Radeon(TM) HD Graphics 2.70GHz x64 with Windows 10 Pro Direct3D v. AMD Catalyst Control Center, Chipset AMD Radeon 6410D 4GB RAM]

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

[No :( ]
