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.

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

Have you tried using all of Dolphin's graphical settings? It might be worth testing everything and seeing if they rely on some kind of feature to render. I also wonder if this is an information issue.

Turns out you are correct.

the Embedded Frame Buffer was the cause of the issue (store EFB Copies to Texture Only). disabling it shows the flags.

That's interesting. I guess they're reading the screen to see where to put them?

Must be. glad it was a simple fix then

We probably only put an INI/Wiki note - EFB2RAM is strenuous so we probably don't want it enabled by default for a fringe feature like this.
