What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

[On all versions i had tested on Mali Gpu's mainly the pixel 6, Mario Sunshine will crash after the dolby logo on all versions past 5.0-21026. i cannot seem to figure out why this is.]

What steps will reproduce the problem?

[simply attempt to start the game on any newer version than 5.0-20126]

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

[5.0-2161]

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

[Yes, 5.0-2161]

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.)

[5.0-21028]

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

[Attach any fifologs if possible, write a description of fifologs and screenshots here to assist people unfamiliar with the game.]

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

[PC specs here]

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

[Anything else here]

This is surprising, as other backends and platforms run fine in general on games and the change mentioned didn't add any code, just rearranged it. Also odd so that it would be fine drawing the dolby logo.

Which backend did you try? Do you have graphics mods turned on or off?

And is this the only game affected?

Many games are affected in various ways on mali gpus. specifically the vulkan backend always seeming to have the most issues, usually graphical ones that make the games unplayable in some form or another. im actually somewhat shocked none of this has been reported before. metroid prime 2 is most affected in that almost all 2d and 3d elements are broken on vulkan. twilight princess will also crasg with opcode errors on vulkan. opengl works on most but some like sunshine seem to still crash. i don't use graphics mods so I don't think that would change the result. your guess is as good as mine why this new update broke the game but so much is already broken on mali it just needs some love.

I'm test on my devices.

1:KT-R1 (Helio G99/Mali G52-MC2/RAM 8GB)
2:SHARP ARUOS R8 Pro (Snapdragon8gen.2/Adreno740/RAM 12GB)

Dolphin v5.0-21303 for Android (Both devices)

Result: The Vulkan Backend is freeze or crash soon until title screen from boot .

Mali G52-MC2 = Crash
Adreno740 = Freeeeeeeeze (If choose Exit emulation then appear notification.)

Not for only Mali.Adreno too.
I think that the issue will happening by Dolphin's Vulkan code.

For your reference.
