Description

Game Name?

Super Mario Sunshine

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

0c6d2edae9fdf40dfc410ff1623e4119

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When closing out of a game about 50% of the time the window freezes as dolphin continuously leaks more and more memory, until 95% of my RAM is used up (Dolphin ends up hitting about 25gb of RAM usage).

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Unknown, closing out of an emulation I guess.

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, 5.0-13268

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

[Yes/No and version number here]
No, 5.0

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.)

[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: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer

[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)

AMD Ryzen 5 3600x
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650
Windows 10
32gb 3200mhz RAM
1TB M.2 SSD

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