Emulator Issues #5964
Pokemon Puzzle League (VC), Super Smash Bros (VC)(PAL) timers move extremely fast
Game Name : Pokemon Puzzle (League)
Game ID : NANE
What went wrong?
In modes where the timer counts up, it counts up extremely fast and maxes out within seconds, even if the max time is 24 hours!
In modes where the timer counts down, it usually gets stuck at 59 seconds, even though it counts down at the same extreme speed.
What did you expect to happen?
I expected time to be a stable phenomenon, where seconds are seconds, minutes are minutes and hours are hours.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
Booting the game up and going into any timed mode will work. The problem is readily apparent.
What version of Dolphin were you using?
64 or 32 bit Dolphin?
I tried on both
What version of Dolphin used to work?
I've gotten about forty versions of dolphin logged, and the timer never worked in the ones I tried, dating back to 3.0 itself.
What Operating System were you using and what are your hardware
Multiple PCs, older builds were tested on an i5 760 @ 3.8 GHz with a GTX 470 Graphics card and 8 gigs of ram. Due to unforeseen issues, I couldn't run 3.5 builds on it, and used my laptop, a 2670 QM i7 with a GTX 560m graphics card and 8 Gigs of ram. Basically, both are above the minimum requirements for Dolphin.
64 or 32 bit Operating system?
64 bit operating system in both cases
