What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
No video output regardless of render window configuration (fullscreen/windowed/render-to-main) unless I somehow resize the render window (by actual resizing or e.g. by switching from fullscreen to windowed mode or vice versa).

What did you expect to happen instead?
Video output showing up fine.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. Start a game (Dolphin with default config)
  2. Watch how nothing gets rendered on the screen (not even a black rect or something). Meanwhile, game audio plays back fine
  3. Resize the window, watch video starting to show up.

Dolphin 3.5 and 3.5-367 are old versions of Dolphin that have
known issues and bugs, so don't report issues about them and test the
latest Dolphin version first.
Which versions of Dolphin did you test on?

Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?
Yes. I'd need to check which version though.

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)
openSUSE 13.1 x64
Intel GPU with latest (git) mesa drivers

Apparently, when I run Dolphin in single-core mode, not even resizing the render window will make the video output show up.

In other words, this currently completely breaks fifo logs for me.

Similarly, I've been having issues on OS X where the video output occasionally flickers black until I enter/exit fullscreen. These issues might be from either one of Lioncash's changes or Armada's.

Unable to reproduce on latest. NVIDIA GTX 560m.

This happens to me when I use my HD 4600 instead of the GTX 770M, but resizing the window doesn't bring the video back

Still an issue here.

This is probably caused by the removal of EmuWindow. Can you compare build 4.0-1864 and 4.0-1862?

Wait no, that only affects Windows.

I hate the google code shortcuts.

  • Status changed from Fix pending to Accepted

First off: turned out I had EGL enabled and none of this happens in GLX.

Still, only part of this issue is fixed; PR 1372 address Dual Core, but Single Core mode still has the same issue (which still cannot be resolved by resizing the render window).

  • Milestone deleted (Current)
  • Priority changed from High to Normal

Removing the current status on this because almost no one uses EGL.
