2. Start any game.
3. Minimize Dolphin.

Which versions of Dolphin did you test on?
4.0-5788 (most recent build), and various other 4.0 builds.

Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which versions of Dolphin used to work?
Worked in 4.0-2263, broke in 4.0-2286.

unable to reproduce

#2 Updated by Bearborg over 5 years ago

I didn't notice before, but the issue only occurs with AA enabled. That may be why you couldn't reproduce it.

  • Status changed from Questionable to New

putting back to new for someone else to look into it, or me when I'm not tired.

  • Status changed from New to Questionable

Unable to reproduce still. Going to blame the AMD drivers :D

#6 Updated by Bearborg over 5 years ago

Okay, turns out there's ANOTHER thing I missed- the issue only happens if the internal resolution is set to Auto (Window Size).

#7 Updated by JMC4789 almost 2 years ago

  • Status changed from Questionable to Fixed

Auto Window Size was removed. So this should be fixed.
