What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When rounding a certain turn (the fourth checkpoint), or perhaps its a time related issue the game freezes, then the music cuts back in for a moment, my entire screen goes black, the music stops and then my dolphin window is corrupted with the visuals becoming almost entirely green and shades of violet. I managed to open my window manager once before the full crash, and every windows had this corrupted look. No inputs work after the game freezes at first, there is no way to close dolphin in time once it starts. The only way to fix it via the power button.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

I'm not entirely sure what the cause is, but I'll explain what I did. I started a new profile with the Chuck Miller character, named "GO", then I go straight to career mode, choosing Amateur, since its the only one unlocked, I choose any of the three unlocked atvs and start the first race. The very beginning has some lag, but the game runs fine up to the fourth checkpoint, where it does the above.

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, 5.0-12367

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Yes, 5.0 (the issue was slightly different, crashing just after the first checkpoint)

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.)

[First broken version number here (if applicable)]

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? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

CPU: Ryzen 5 2600
GPU: MSI Radeon RX 570 8 gb Armor
OS: Ubuntu 20.04
RAM: 16 GB DDR4 2400MHz

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

I have included my save file.

Also I am using OpenGL forgot to mention that, although I don't think changing it has any effect..

If your entire computer is crashing, it is a fault outside of Dolphin. Dolphin is a usermode program that is unable to cause your whole computer to crash. The most likely culprit would be your graphics drivers, as they are kernel level.

  • Status changed from New to Invalid

Like JMC said. If your computer is crashing it is out of Dolphin's control.
