When you press ALT + F5 the emulated wimote will be connected and if you press ALT + F5 again the "connected" message will appear again when it should disconnect the wimote and appear the disconnected message.

Sometimes it always appear "disconnected"

The 3.0 and the GIT 3.0 178 doesn't have this issue.

The GIT 3.0 191 until 3.0 736 has this issue.

One of those builds "GIT 3.0 179 at GIT 3.0 191" caused this issue.

I will test more builds and see if I can find the exact one, after all this issue can't appear on the 4.0. ;)

I can confirm it, reverting Host_UpdateMainFrame(); in Main.cpp fixes it. As for stability with the latest build it seems stable enough, i will test some more.

Here is a build with that line reverted, in the past i was getting a random crash in Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, Rune Factory Tides of destiny and others, in smg2 usually within half an hour with that line. burnhellpsp, could you test how stable it is in your end?

Sure, but I didn't have Mario Galaxy 1 and 2, right now, so, Which game should I test?

Anyway, I will test some games. ;)

Thanks man, from my side the results are similar, no random crashes here either. I suppose it can be reverted back to how it was.

Ugh. You know my opinion about that patch, and the issue has not been fixed properly yet AFAICT. Reverting the patch most likely would make people pop out in a few hundred revisions again and point at random crashes. We surely don't want that before 4.0.

@NeoBrainX, the build with the line reverted works very well here (no random freezes)

Resident Evil 4 Wii need this fix to be able to play with GC controller.

Dolphin 3.5 have this problem too :(

Have you tested running SMG for 4 hours to make sure there are no random freezes then?

I don't expect you to, but someone will do that eventually and report breakage. Even worse, that will only happen in like 3 months and we'll waste hours of time to even pinpoint the issue to an eventual revert of that line. And we'll still not know if the line is the actual issue or not.

tl;dr it's a mess. Told you so from the beginning.

@ kosta: do whatever you like with that patch. Maybe if trunk gets broken again people might start caring to fix the actual issue, anyway. That actually seems like the best solution, so go for it :P

Actually i am scared to touch something else other than .ini files after what happened last time. It is a single line that needs to be reverted, sure you want me to do that?

Actions #11

Updated by hatarumoroboshi almost 11 years ago

Wouldn't it be better to create a new branch in order to accurately test if this brings out again random crashes for SMG (and maybe other titles)?

Actions #12

Updated by NeoBrainX almost 11 years ago

Branches don't help here. I tried this earlier in a branch of mine and people reported success while it didn't change anything.
