Description

Game Name?

Phantasy Star Online Episode 1&2 Plus

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

GPOJ8P

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

There are some graphic corruptions on dynamic objects such as switches or doors which shows distorted graphics. (see attached pictures)

What steps will reproduce the problem?

-Create a character and play Offline/Online
-Go to the first area "Forest 1"
-Play a little and you will notice these corruptions happening in doors, boxes, switches, etc.

These errors occur in any map and any mission of the game

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

Dolphin 5.0 - 15276

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Yes

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

Apple MacBook Air M1 , 16GB RAM, 512 SSD

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

The error will happen in M1 builds alongside with older Intel builds running on Rosetta 2, and will happen with either Vulkan or OpenGL enabled as your graphic backends. It seems to be its related to the Apple M1 GPU maybe.

Could you record a fifolog of this issue? Here's how to do it:

  1. Go to the part in-game where the issue appears.
  2. Open Tools in the menu bar -> FIFO Player.
  3. Press Record.
  4. Press Save. You will be prompted to save a .dff file.
  5. Upload the .dff file here or elsewhere (you may need to compress it in a zip or similar to make it smaller).

This will help us debug the issue.

Hello Oath, I'm attaching the FIFO Log file you requested at the same spot.

I'm also attaching another gif showcasing the corruption happening in an Episode 2 zone at a bigger scale.

Thank you!

I played these fifologs on my MacBook Pro and can't reproduce the issue. It does seem to be M1-specific. I'll take a look at this later.

For reference, my specs:
MacBook Pro 16" (2019)
Intel i9
Intel UHD 630
AMD Radeon Pro 5500M
