What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

None of the official Action Replay codes for Bomberman Generation work in Dolphin. I did double-check that cheats were enabled, and I confirmed that the codes were for the appropriate region. I can't test them on hardware, as I don't have an Action Replay disc.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Place attached GCI save file in ${UserDirectory}/GC/USA/Card A

  2. Start Dolphin and set Memory Card A to use a GCI folder if it isn't already

  3. Add and enable the AR Code detailed below under "AR Code for testing:"

  4. Begin game

  5. Load the first save file ingame

  6. On world map, observe that the above code did nothing and you are unable to access any world other than the first three

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Issue still present as of 5.0-13792

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 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:

[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)

CPU: Intel Core i7-9700k @4.7Ghz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti
OS: Windows 10 Home

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

Attatched is my memory card save; it has already passed the opening cutscene.
