Description

Game Name?

System Menu

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When performing initial setup on old system menu versions, the menu hangs on a black screen after finishing the setup instead of rebooting into the menu. Stopping and then starting emulation loads the menu as intended. This does not apply to versions after 3.1U.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

I own Super Paper Mario (USA revision 0), which comes with System Menu 2.0 on the disc. It probably is possible to use just NUSDownloader to set everything up, but I don't have exact steps.

  1. Rename the Dolphin Emulator folder to something else to avoid damaging existing NAND data (and to start from a new, clean NAND)
  2. Right-click Super Paper Mario in the games list and select "Perform System Update"
  3. After the update finishes, select Tools → Load Wii System Menu 2.0U.
  4. Select a country, then press OK, then press OK on the screen mentioning the screen dimming feature.
  5. Disconnect your computer from the internet, and then select OK to proceed to the system update. The update should fail. (I have also tried doing it with the internet connected, and the update usually fails with Error 32004 (apparently related to unofficial software). Either way, it's System Menu 2.0 that matters, so don't update).
  6. Select OK on the error screen, and then select Wii Menu.
  7. The system will hang on a black screen.
  8. The console will properly shutdown if escape is pressed (this has happened every time I tested recently, but I'm not 100% sure it's always the case; I remember needing to press escape twice in one case. Note also that escape does not shut down during the configuration process, so maybe that's what happened.)

I tested System Menu 2.2U by installing System Menu 2.0U from Super Paper Mario, and then applying the System Menu 2.2U WAD from NUSDownloader (RVL-WiiSystemmenu-193.wad). I tested System Menu 3.0U by installing System Menu 3.1U from Wii Fit and then applying the System Menu 3.0U WAD (RVL-WiiSystemmenu-225.wad). Neither of those setups is exactly accurate with regards to installed IOSs, but it seemed to boot at least.

Is the issue present in the latest development version?

Tested 5.0-13698.

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Not tested, but I'm pretty sure that some of the needed features to test this don't exist in 5.0.

What are your PC specifications?

  • CPU: AMD A6-340M APU with Radeon(tm) Graphics, 1500 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
  • GPU: AMD Radeon HD 6520G
  • OS: Windows 10 Pro (Insider preview) 10.0.19043.906

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue?

I specifically tested System Menu 2.0U, 2.2U, and 3.0U (along with 3.1U and a few other versions). There is no 2.1U, so I didn't test that.

The end of the logs for 2.0U and 2.2U look like this:

(note that IOCTL_STM_HOTRESET is missing in 3.0U).

IOCTL_STM_HOTRESET is currently implemented only as logging, so it hanging for that makes sense. 3.0U hanging makes less sense (and may be caused by a separate issue).

History

#1 Updated by pokechu22 10 days ago

Super Mario Galaxy 1 comes with System Menu 3.0U, and I can reproduce the issue using that as well (which is probably easier than installing 3.1U and then replacing the System Menu).
