Game Name?

Animal Crossing: City Folk

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

RUUE01 (0001000052555545)

MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Verify tab, Verify Integrity button)

(this doesn't belong here, but I noticed some things through the verify tool, I've attached a picture)

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Since a few days ago (at least since 12/29/2020), using the latest version of Dolphin shows this error window just as Rover finishes greeting me and while showing the choice menu. Gameplay and saving is normal though. I've always clicked "Ignore for this session".

What steps will reproduce the problem?

All I did to get this error window was:
1. Open Dolphin, then open Tools > Load Wii Menu 4.3U (something along that line)
2. After the game showed up in the Disc Channel, I clicked on it, then clicked Start.
3. I pressed A (and also mashed B) throughout Rover's speech until the window popped up.

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. I always update automatically before playing, so it's always been the latest development version for those few days.
Currently, it's version 5.0-13392

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

No. At least, I don't know because I've never used the stable version with this game.

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.)


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:

It doesn't look like a graphical issue, so.........

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

I'm using the MacBook Air 2020, with the 8-core-graphics M1 chip. It's: MacBook Air (M1, 2020)
Order number is: MGN73LL/A

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

I have no clue, sorry D:
