Emulator Issues #12738
Riivolution patch filenames are case sensitive, shouldn't be
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
Riivolution on real hardware doesn't care about matching case, and will redirect to files even if they are not the same as on the disc (e.g. "message.arc" will replace "Message.arc"). On Dolphin, this does not occur; Message.arc does not get replaced because "message.arc" is capitalised differently.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Example of a real-world mod in which this occurs is Newer Holiday Special (https://mega.nz/#!qnxXFQLC!O7JmvHEy2W-9mPQ7wt1VuCCHiOub1-8YpaNOyB-Rfew)
Custom text (message.arc in patch -> Message.arc on disc) and the Japanese title logo (OpeningTitle.arc in patch -> openingTitle.arc on disc) are loaded fine on real hardware, but Dolphin uses the files from the disc instead.
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Which is the first broken version?
This has been broken since Riivolution patch support was added in 5.0-15407
What are your PC specifications?
Windows 10 (Version 20H2, OS Build 19042.1348, 64-Bit)
Screenshots of Newer Holiday Special's title screen as an example; the incorrect version is due to "openingTitle.arc" being incorrectly called "OpeningTitle.arc" in the Japanese patch, so the file does not get redirected. The correct version is what happens when the case matches exactly (openingTitle.arc -> openingTitle.arc), and is also the behaviour on hardware regardless of case.
