Emulator Issues #6219
Extreme lag on Dolphin since 3.5-1165
Every Wii Game
What went wrong?
Since 3.5-1165, I experience an extreme lag at every Wii game on Dolphin
with the games just running at 30 % and lower. Changing the Video Backend
or any setting don't make a change. When I use OpenGL, the emulation speed even falls down to 15 %.
What version of Dolphin were you using?
The problem first occurred on 3.5-1165 and is still there
64 or 32 bit Dolphin?
I use 64 bit.
What version of Dolphin used to work?
The stable 3.5 works perfectly and also up to 3.5-1164.
What Operating System were you using and what are your hardware
ProIntel Core i7-2670QM @ 2.20GHz
Nvidia GeForce GT 550M
6 GB RAM
64 or 32 bit Operating system?
It's a 64 bit system.

I can't replicate your issues. On top of that the commit responsible according to you 3.5-1165 or
affects only d3d9 i think. Can't see why everything will be affected by it.
Try using a clean build of dolphin and try again.

I can assure you that I tried to fix it over and over again with clean builds. Furthermore, it definitely is 1165 and following which are causing the problem because on any build before that, it works fine! Although it just affected Direct3D9, maybe something else got broken?

I tried Dolphin 3.5-1195 now on Windows 7, and the problem is still there, albeit not so severe, it runs at 50-80 % and is kind of instable. Then I tried Windows 8 and the problem even gets worse, D3D9 and D3D11 just run at 15 % like OpenGL! What actually could went wrong there?

Ok, I tried Brawl and Mario Party 8 on 1195 and they suddenly run as smooth as ever...
But the lag still is there for Mario Party 9. I was playing this recently very often, maybe the extreme lag isn't about "all" Wii Games but only some like MP9. Could anyone test this game if you have the same problem?

I am closing this issue, since it is fixed from 3.5-1189. MP9 is running fine no matter the settings btw, the issue is of a general slowdown with ALL wii games basically, not of lag from time to time in a certain game which is normal with all dolphin versions and to be expected.
