Description

Paper Mario Thousand Year Door

As i was playing the game, i get to the the chapter with the punies, and as i was in the tree and going down a pipe, dolphin crashed with a warning and its happened a few times and the message is random, and i dont get this message with any other game i play. I use dolphin version 3.5-1876 and i cant tell if the version matters since the message is random in this game.

You didn't provide enough information.

  1. What are your settings? Screenshots showing all of them would be preferred.

  2. Are you using any cheats?

  3. Have you checked the MD5 hash of your game? Check the dump information files that you got when you dumped it, or download an MD5 hash checker. Get the hash and put it into google and see what you got. While you're at it, put the hash you got here.

  4. You forgot to include the GameID.

  5. Provide a GCI file just before where you encountered the bug, so we can reproduce it. Use Tools > Memory Card manager to create a GCI of your paper mario save. Remember to upload it to a site like dropbox or mediafire.

I couldn't reproduce the warning since its random and it think you have to play for a while to get the warning. Here is the GCI save. play file 2 and see if you get the message. As for the dump information i dont know where its at.

D3D11 is the worst back-end for Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door. I don't think it'll fix your crash (I don't think it possibly could cause it) but it'll stop some flickering issues that crop up every once in a while. Otherwise, your settings look fine.

#5 Updated by gamedevistator over 7 years ago

I didnt use any cheats

#6 Updated by MayImilae over 7 years ago

Did you check your MD5 hash?

#7 Updated by gamedevistator over 7 years ago

Where do i find the MD5 hash?

#8 Updated by JMC4789 over 7 years ago

If there is no reply soon, I will assume invalid and mark the issue as such.

Regardless, find you disc MD5 by loading it into a program called "winmd5free"

Give us the output of that and we can verify whether it's a good dump or not on redump.org.

#9 Updated by gamedevistator over 7 years ago

It seems to be fixed. Haven't had any warning since, and im almost done with the game.

#10 Updated by jesse_lun over 7 years ago

I'm not sure if it's related, but me and a user on TASVideos reported Dolphin crashing as soon as a savefile within the punis was loaded:

The save file in question is here:

#11 Updated by JMC4789 over 7 years ago

I have a savefile in the same area and it works fine. I'm really thinking someone is doing something is wrong.

#12 Updated by jesse_lun over 7 years ago

Well, I just tested it on the builds without the fix, namely the one in the download page, 4.0.2, and it seems to be able to load the savefile without problem. Yet when I tried it on dolphin-master-4.0-604-x86.7z, it crashed.

#13 Updated by JMC4789 over 7 years ago

What fix?

#14 Updated by jesse_lun over 7 years ago

er...since I can't seem to edit my comment, the "fix" I mentioned is the one referenced in the forum thread.

#15 Updated by jesse_lun over 7 years ago

If it helps, the build that the savefile crashed on is

#16 Updated by jesse_lun over 7 years ago

Ok, and update:
I tested loading the savefile
https://www.mediafire.com/?9wy8qadwv5tcf5d
on the latest build:
https://dolphin-emu.org/download/dev/5fb8d07953a808b71e6cae6c2e6ed6bd8e104364/

and it gives me this:

I'm using OpenGL, if that helps.

This seems to only affect Win32 builds.

Is everyone who is crashing using a Win32 version of Dolphin?

If so, I may have a fix in hand. It's a weird compiler optimization bug, and the fix is no less weird.

Here's a Win32 custom built version without the crash. Please test and send feedback:

#18 Updated by jesse_lun about 7 years ago

I just checked the build you provided. It doesn't crash Dolphin now, but the puni graphics have become glitched once more:

I guess since it's fixable this should be accepted?

#20 Updated by jesse_lun about 7 years ago

Ok, I can confirm this has nothing to do with the graphic bug, since for revisions as far back as this:
https://dolphin-emu.org/download/dev/94f8c68a35b6b29e6670092ebc78e0dcd206463e/

Seems to crash dolphin upon loading the savefile. :o

#21 Updated by JMC4789 about 7 years ago

The graphical bug is its own issue and well known. This issue is for the crash/warning stuff.

#22 Updated by crudelios about 7 years ago

The next big bbox revision (it's a slow work in progress) will fix this and the puni graphics as well.

#23 Updated by JMC4789 about 7 years ago

Looking forward to seeing it :)
