Game Name?

Only game I've seen this happen in is [Capcom vs. SNK 2 EO]. Tested 2 other games with no problems.

Game ID?


What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.

At random times while recording input during gameplay, an in-game controller disconnect message will pop up for about a frame or two and then immediately disappear. This doesn't happen when not recording input, and I can confirm there is no issue with my Mayflash adapter. Physically disconnecting the controller from the adapter doesn't produce a message, which doesn't make any sense.

What did you expect to happen instead?

Expected the game to see the controller throughout with no in-game message.

What steps will reproduce the problem?
[Don't assume we have ever played the game and know any level names. Be as
specific as possible.]

  1. Start Recording Input
  2. Go to any mode and start a match
  3. At random times (at least for me), the controller will APPEAR to disconnect.

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?

Happens as far back as Dolphin 3.5! May happen even further back than that.

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)

CPU: AMD Athlon X4 750K @ 4.1GHz
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Ed.
OS: Windows 8.1 x64

Do you happen to have a DolphinBar plugged in? Just curious.

#2 Updated by adiffin502 over 6 years ago

I don't.

#3 Updated by JMC4789 over 6 years ago

Okay, just making sure. I know the DolphinBar can actually short out my other USB devices sometimes... and similar things happen. I don't have the game to investigate further, unfortunately.
