Corrupted texture of the Bub-ulb was not added to the issue by mistake.

So, this is the second issue I've seen where dumping textures comes out with weird stuff.

My question is: are the correct textures in there too?

Most of the textures in Paper Mario 64 do dump correctly in Dolphin. However, some dumped textures tend to be corrupted compared to Project 64. For instance, Project 64 has no problems dumping the Fright Mask while Dolphin dumps way more textures of the Fright Mask than necessary and has every image of it corrupted.

It is possible, because we're emulating an emulator, that there's little we can do about it as well. We don't know how it's managing texture memory at all, especially if it involves any kind of texture effects.

We'd need a GPU emulation expert to make a determination to be sure.
