Everything except the intro video works for me...

Anyone else having this problem?

#2 Updated by daws72 almost 12 years ago

The intro video ONLY works in 50Hz mode..don't ask me why. :P

#3 Updated by marcus almost 12 years ago


But about the issue. Is this widespread?

#5 Updated by andrewsheldon17181 almost 12 years ago

Can someone please tell me the exact setup/config they used to get it to work.

#6 Updated by sl1nk3.s almost 12 years ago

If you're using PAL, just use PAL50
and if you're using NTSC or PAL60, you won't get the video, so just press start...

Yup, seems like a HLE issue.

PAL 60/NTSC worked partially up to (including) 6718 (with LLE) and it was broken
by 6719. It's a PPC <-> DSP timming issue (+ VI issue i guess).

Went black screen after intro. Got 60 Fps though xD I'm a noob to dolphin. What could be going wrong? :3

#15 Updated by Anonymous over 9 years ago

just press start/a

#16 Updated by Autoran1 about 9 years ago

Yup as you said, pressing a/start and game works

With Dolphin 3.0 845 the video will show up if idle skipping is disabled but the sound is awful and it won't work with LLE. Same with the AX - HLE branch.

#18 Updated by skidau over 8 years ago

Enabling Accurate VBeam emulation fixes the video. The audio stutters and the video looks like it is playing at half framerate. Dolphin 3.5-368 was used to test. Both DSP HLE and DSP LLE work.

Removing the vbeam divider under AudioDMACallback will make the video play at full framerate. Not sure how to fix the audio.

Seems to be working now in 3.5-644 using Accurate VBeam Emulation.

#20 Updated by kostamarino about 8 years ago

Nice, indeed it works fine with accurate vbeam, with both HLE and LLE. Should i enforce it in the inis?

#21 Updated by JMC4789 about 8 years ago

I tested with accurate vbeam, game seems to run fine past that and everything else. I don't know how much of a performance hit it takes, but, getting the video working would be nice by default.

#22 Updated by skidau about 8 years ago

Yes, since VBeam fixes the video, I guess it is ok to add it to the game ini. Tony Hawk Pro Skater 3 should have it enabled too (if that game works fine otherwise).
