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?
[Yes/No and version number here]
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.)
Tool forum thread says it is currently "Broken Due To Infra Changes"
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
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
CPU: Intel Celeron N3050
GPU: Intel HD Graphics (Braswell)
OS: Windows 10 Home 64-bit
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
I remember reading a bug from a while back about all internet related actions on multiple games freezing Dolphin and it being related to USB (I think) however I can't find it now.
- Status changed from New to Working as intended
The Wii Shop Channel requires a fully dumped NAND to access. It will not run with Dolphin's default NAND as it lacks keys and various other data to connect. If you believe you have a properly dumped NAND with a unique Wii key that isn't banned, please feel free to update the issue report. I can still access the Wii Shop at this time on my account from Dolphin. The popup I believe you were hitting had to do with not having a proper NAND, but due to the dualcore issue, I cannot be sure.
