Emulator Issues #13354open
No games respond to input after a game is closed or paused.
Any game applicable (e.g. Wii System Menu 4.3E )
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.
Only the first run of a game, for a given dolphin session, will accept input of any kind. After closing or pausing the game, no subsequent game will respond to input. The controller configuration menu still behaves as expected throughout.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
- Open Dolphin.
- Start a game.
- See that input functions correctly from all devices.
- Close (or pause) the game.
- Reopen (or resume) the game.
- See that the game no longer receives input.
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
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
Ryzen 2700, RX 580, Fedora 38 (Flathub, dnf, and built from source)
i5-8350U, Intel HD Graphics 620, Fedora 38 (Flathub, dnf, and built from source)
Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
Reproducible with an entirely fresh configuration.

If it is, this is an issue with detecting whether the render window is in focus or not on some (all?) Linux display servers. You can work around it by enabling background input.
