Emulator Issues #12115
Naruto: Gekitō Ninja Taisen! 4 - Netplay is not working correctly between Linux and Windows
[Put Game Name here]
Naruto: Gekitō Ninja Taisen! 4
But it could affect other Japanese games too
[Put Game ID here]
[Put MD5 Hash here]
If you try to netplay from Linux to Windows (in this case win8.1) then the Windows user is not able to see/find the game.
[Reproduction steps here]
1.Go to Tools -> Start Netplay
2.host a netplay session with the aforementioned game
3.The Windows user could not find the game even though it got the same MD5 hash
[Version number here]
Yes it's still in the latest development version in this case 5.0-12058
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
[Yes/No and version number here]
Didn't try because netplay was not good enough there.
[PC specs here]
CPU:Intel i7 8550u
GPU:Radeon 530/Intel UHD 630
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
[Anything else here]
Except about that game , netplay is working quite well between Linux and Windows
Please perform the following steps on both Linux and Windows, to give us more information about the issue:
Right-click on the game in Dolphin's game list and select Properties. Go to the Info tab, select the name shown under Banner Details (NOT the name shown under ISO Details), and copy and paste it into a comment here.
My theory is that the names might differ between the operating systems in some way which might not be visible to the naked eye.
- Status changed from New to Accepted
Thanks for helping out.
I'm planning to do a more robust fix of this at some point, but if someone wants to make a hotfix in the meantime, it would be possible to do a replace of U+FF5E -> U+301C and U+FF0D -> U+2212 in the code that converts Shift-JIS to UTF-8 on Windows. (I'm not sure if those two are the only affected characters.) I hope macOS uses the same conversion tables as Linux...
- Fixed in set to 5.0-12546
- Status changed from Fix pending to Fixed
