Game Name: Tales of Symphonia
Game ID: (I have no idea)

The problem:
The game runs absolutely perfectly on both high and low quality. Perfectly being with no lagg, sound crashes or frame skips. Yet after playing a little while the game crashes sometimes. Usually the crashes happen when in 'field-mode' (as shown in the screenshot). This mode might be more demanding for the emulator, but it still runs smoothly.
I do notice a small sound change before the crash but its very faint. It's difficult to describe.

I expected the logg to show some kind of error but I only see this sometimes: "Warnig: iCalcStcPnt1 ArgStcPnt 0". The emulator doesn't crash when it prints this message, but it's worth mentioning I suppose.

Version: As shown in the printscreen this was done on version 4.0.
Also I'm using the 64 bit version, which is supported by my PC.

I hope this helps!

As is routine with this kind of issue, can you verify that you don't have a bad dump of the game? Check the file's MD5 hash with a tool like WinMD5 and compare it to the one on

...Also, wait, what, why do you only have one of the discs? It's a two-disc game, you're gonna need that other disc at some point.

I played this a little bit an was unable to produce any crashes in moderately up to date dev builds. Will update as I go back and play this game more.

I'm still not able to produce a crash, even in JIT. Are you in long range mode or just traveling?

  • Status changed from Questionable to Duplicate

Since the OP has disappeared and I found a way to trigger a crash at any point, I'm going to merge this into my new issue.
