What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
When Cull vertices on the CPU is ticked, menu elements in both Super Monkey Ball 1 and Super Monkey Ball 2 disappear. There are more that disappear in SMB1, but a few disappear in 2, like the elements on the screen where you select one of the 4 monkeys.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

In SMB1, simply open the game and go into the menu with Cull vertices on the CPU ticked. The menu elements are invisible. In SMB2, open the game with Cull vertices on the CPU ticked, and go to main game -> challenge mode -> 1 player, and you will see missing menu elements on the monkey selection screen.

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes. 5.0-21164

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)

i5-13600kf, RTX 2080 Super

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)

Sorry, I made a small typo on the bottom two file attachments (the EFB dumps): those are from SMB2, sorry.

A FIFO log would probably be helpful here (https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/wiki/FIFO-Player-Overview).

Thanks! I can reproduce on my end. (MacBook Pro 16" 2019, macOS 14.2.1, Metal backend)

Do we just want to disable this in the INI for these games?

We should aim for a proper fix unless we find a reason why a proper fix wouldn't be possible. Though if you want to disable it in the INI for the time being, I'm not opposed.
