Description

1) Game Name and ID (as it appears in right click > properties: "GZ2P01",
"RSBE01", etc): Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn PAL - RFEP01

1) What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

In Part 4 Endgame, after Micaiah promotes, it should lead to unit preparation. Instead there is a black screen and sometimes the error message "DSI exception in stmw".

2) Did the game ever work correctly (i.e. not have this problem) on an
earlier version of dolphin?
(If so, please specify the latest revision that worked.)

No.

3) What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Load game at Part 4 Endgame 1
2. Leave base and go through with the scenes

4) What version of dolphin are you using (32bit/64bit along with the
version as it appears in the title bar: "R 4779", "R 6403M", "3.0", etc)?

R7658 64 bit

Thanks.

  • Status changed from Questionable to Accepted

Yes, still occurring with 3.5-404.

#9 Updated by titouf2609 almost 6 years ago

Funny, I've just gone through the whole game, and except for some little sound glitches with HLE I haven't encountered a single problem. Runs fine on my desktop (I7 950 @ 4.2 Ghz and Nvidia GTX 570) and on my laptop (I5 2410M & Nvidia GT 525M)

I had a save right at that moment so I've just tested it out with the latest revision (3.5-1063) works absolutely fine. U sure your iso isn't damaged or corrupt ?

What are your specs ?

#10 Updated by jake.the.shadowdemon almost 6 years ago

Specs shouldn't be a problem because I tried the same save file on a Mac. Same error. Tried a different game using the PAL disc instead of NTSC, same problem. Different save game for the PAL of course.

#11 Updated by anthony almost 6 years ago

It's possible that this bug is triggered only on hard mode.. My friend and I used the same ISO, he played normal mode till the end, and I played hard mode, up to after Micaiah promotes.

#12 Updated by pendekarrajawalisakti almost 6 years ago

Exactly same here, bro. I'm using a PAL disc.

#17 Updated by Karunama about 5 years ago

Just wanted to mention that in Dolphin 4.0 I'm having the same issue, and I'm not playing on hard mode.

#18 Updated by pendekarrajawalisakti about 5 years ago

Again, I've played once on hard mode using latest dolphin and it still happen.
It's time to say goodbye, maybe.

#19 Updated by FE10PHY over 4 years ago

I don't know if this will help anyone figure out what is wrong but I discovered that if in base you use a gecko code to remove Micaiah's non-promotion skill and promote her to tier 3 before hitting "End" and watching the scenes followed by her scripted promotion, then you will be able to proceed without crash. The game will skip the promotion part if you actually watch the scenes and jump to Ike saying "We're Ready". Then you can proceed to pick units. This is the only circumvention I found. Hope this helps.

#20 Updated by Karunama over 4 years ago

Any chance there's a version of that gecko code for the PAL version? As it is, I'm pretty limited in the cheats I can apply :/

#22 Updated by MagnumX197 about 4 years ago

I'm having the same issue. I played through once and beat the game then on the second play through on a newgame+ I started getting the black screen after Micaiah promotes. I deleted that saved game and started over and I'm getting the black screen again.

#27 Updated by JMC4789 about 3 years ago

I've gone through the promotion scene a ton of times with PR3601 and cannot reproduce a hang. https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/3601

#28 Updated by skidau about 3 years ago

The PR did not fix it for me.

Attaching a Wii save file for the PAL version.

Steps to reproduce from the save file.
1. At the file menu, select Start Chapter
2. Select the top option, Part IV Endgame Rebirth (I)
3. Select End
4. Select Yes to Leave base
5. Hammer the 1 button on the wiimote to cancel the animation and dialog
6. At the screen where Ike says "We're ready.", press the 1 button and the game will hang/crash (http://i.imgur.com/8twRVcp.png)

#29 Updated by JMC4789 about 3 years ago

Set emulated CPU Clock to 15% or lower to work-around the hang. Anything that causes the scene to lag substantially should work. I'm also using single core.

Apparently this didn't work for skidau, even though I'm using his savefile. Someone else should try to confirm.
