Emulator Issues #13109open
Dolphin Render-Hanging When Using D3D11, D3D12, But Not OpenGL
This currently happens with any GC or Wii game I try in my dumped library.
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
When attempting to play a game with the Graphics Backend set to either D3D11 or D3D12, the game will not load and Dolphin's emulator render window will hang at a black screen, ultimately giving a prompt from Windows that the application has stopped responding.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Set Graphics Backend to either D3D11, or D3D12 and attempt to load a GC or Wii game.
