Emulator Issues #13194open
Dolphin freezes when returning to the Wii menu with no warning dialogue
Any Wii Game
Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Info tab)
MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, Properties, Verify tab, Verify Integrity button)
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
If Dolphin doesn't have the Wii menu title in its user directory folder, and you try to enter the menu through the home button or by clicking "No" on games like Wii Sports when it asks, "Continue without saving?" Dolphin will freeze. It should've given the user a warning that they don't have the title in Dolphin like this, but it doesn't.
The Github summary for 5.0-18813, the first version to do away with the error, doesn't mention it at all. That's why I believe this is a bug. Apologies if it isn't.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Start Dolphin with a fresh user directory
- Open any game
- Open the home menu
- Return to the Wii menu
Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
Is the issue present in the latest stable version?
If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)
If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer
