Description

Game Name?

Mario Party 8

Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Info tab)

RM8E01

MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Verify tab, Verify Integrity button)

32c4c4af16a87dd6661a46f2057a65e3

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When any minigame loads in Mario Party 8, Dolphin will crash with a message "Invalid read from 0x9f0a7c41, PC = 0x8002a2bc" and infinite more when the 16:9 (US) widescreen code from the wiki is enabled, and only if this code is enabled. Does not crash when entering any minigame from the free play menu.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Load the included savestate, wait for the game to pick the minigame "Mean, Lean Ravine", then it will crash.

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, 5.0-11863

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Can't test as I can't find a way to add a gecko code in 5.0-stable

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.)

This has not happened before, and neither did I do a Dolphin update between when it was working before and when it's not (~1 month). The only thing I recall changing lately was updating my graphic card driver.
Doesn't work on 5.0-11329 either, an old version that I also had lying around.

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

Attached.

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

CPU: Intel Core i7-4820K
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 1070 Ti - Driver 441.87
OS: Windows 10 x64

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

Log, FIFO and GFX config attached.

I actually wanted to know what is presented in the problems section, not the hashes.

#4 Updated by Techjar 3 months ago

Oh my bad, I didn't notice the screenshot. Well the problem probably isn't related to the disc image, but I'll test the game here to be sure.

#5 Updated by Techjar 3 months ago

I can confirm it crashes with the provided savestate, so it's definitely not related to the dump. However, since this is a crash that only occurs with a gecko code, I'm not sure there's really anything for us to do about it.

Since it's from the wiki (https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=Mario_Party_8#16:9_Aspect_Ratio_Fix), and no author is provided there, I assumed to report this here. If this is out of scope, I guess feel free to close.
