Description

See https://github.com/lutris/lutris/issues/4030#issuecomment-1215485150

I get this error message when I try to launch a Gamecube or Wii game. It used to work with version 5.0 but now I built the latest development version on Github on my Debian11/KDE machine. There is no output in the console and I don't know what caused this and how to solve it. I already tried changing the graphics settings from None selected to OpenGL.

History

#1 Updated by myndstream about 1 month ago

This also occurs with Dolphin 5.0-14480.

#2 Updated by myndstream about 1 month ago

(Not just with 5.0-17197.) 5.0-17197 is the version I built, 5.0-14480 is the version I installed through Lutris. Both versions have this problem, no matter if I launch the game directly via Lutris or if I launch Dolphin without Lutris and start the game there.
