Emulator Issues #12427
Random crash and save loss
Shadow The Hedgehog
Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Info tab)
MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Verify tab, Verify Integrity button)
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
I paused the game using the In-game pause feature, and changed to my browser window. upon going back to the game, the FPS lable said 0, and no input would do anything. after 5 minutes i closed the game. upon reopening the game, about 8 of my previous saves were undone, setting my progress back by a lot. (it did NOT completely delete my saves though)
What steps will reproduce the problem?
turn Pause on focus lost off, boot up the game, start any stage, press start, leave the window and open anything else. (randomly happens, this is the second time)
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Version i'm using: 5.0-13178
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
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.)
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)
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
