Your answers are there!]
[Leave the questions as they are and answer them in the next line]
[Remove lines written inside brackets [], but nothing else]

Game Name?
Boom Blox

Game ID?
RVL-RBKE-USA

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Only light throws could be performed.

What did you expect to happen instead?
Power throws, just like before 4.0-553.

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. Get Boom Blox Wii ISO
2. Choose level of your choice
3. Try to shake the emulated wiimote

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?
4.0-553, 4.0-552

Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?
Yes. Versions prior to 4.0-553 solve the issue.

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)
Windows 8.1, i5 3350P, GTX 650 Ti BOOST, 8GB RAM.

History

#1 Updated by kostamarino about 6 years ago

Please test using the latest development version.

#2 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

Okay, but I tested on the latest version. The issue is still there like it's not noticed for a thousand builds.

#4 Updated by rachelbryk about 6 years ago

That commit makes no sense.

#5 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

The commit was made to change the emulated wiimote shaking mechanism to fix DJ Hero's record spinning problem, but has caused regressions.

#6 Updated by rachelbryk about 6 years ago

No, it only affected the turntable attachment. Shaking was not affected by that commit at all.

#7 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

Hmm, 4.0-553 was compiled from (maybe) commit c5695c987b75628315f2189085e10eddb3442ff4 and the description is wrong so maybe it could be commit c5695c987b75628315f2189085e10eddb3442ff4 all along.

#8 Updated by JMC4789 about 6 years ago

That makes a lot more sense.

#9 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

So will you try to fix it?

#10 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

Hello?

#11 Updated by JMC4789 about 6 years ago

Need a developer to investigate the new commit you bisected to.

#12 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

Then contact one of Dolphin's major contributors.

Anyways, here's a recap. On the OP, it said that 4.0-553 caused regressions in such 2 games, but there was confusion, so I tracked Jordan's commit list and found the true cause which is commit c5695c987b75628315f2189085e10eddb3442ff4, so 4.0-553 had the wrong desc.

#14 Updated by JMC4789 about 6 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Accepted
  • Regression set to Yes

We need some kind of hardware tests or something, unfortunately.

#15 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

Wii Sports is affected too, with being unable to catch any fish.

#16 Updated by marcusorillo about 6 years ago

Sorry I meant Wii Play, NOT Wii Sports.

#17 Updated by marcusorillo almost 6 years ago

Unfortunately, the only ways we can test are Wii titles that incorporate shaking your Wiimote.

#18 Updated by marcusorillo almost 6 years ago

Fixed yet?

#19 Updated by JMC4789 over 5 years ago

If I could figure out how to catch a damn fish on an emulated Wiimote, i'd confirm this.

#20 Updated by JMC4789 over 5 years ago

Confirmed now! Thanks for being patient.

#22 Updated by JMC4789 over 2 years ago

  • Fixed in set to 5.0-8443
  • Status changed from Accepted to Fix pending

#23 Updated by JosJuice over 2 years ago

  • Status changed from Fix pending to Fixed
