Emulator Issues #8409
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories graphical corruption
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Lighting issues, visual artifacts (spots of color or distortion that are only there for a split-second) and white borders at the top and left sides of the screen.
What did you expect to happen instead?
No flickering squares of light and no white borders.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Launch the game, create a save file
2. Watch the intro video
3. When the video portion in the psychiatrists office begins, there will be a white border around the left and top sides of the screen, and the lighting will be strange. Interestingly, using Dolphin's screenshot tool shows the game how it was supposed to look (IE with correct lighting and no borders) instead of capturing the error, so I had to use the Snipping Tool to get a screenshot.
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?
Not that I know of.
What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)
Core i7-4810MQ, GTX880m, 16gb DDR3 RAM, Windows 8.1 64 bit.
Is there any other relevant information? (e.g. logs, screenshots,

OK, final comment for now, promise:
I was wrong, the screenshot did NOT show the correct lighting. it just happened to catch it at an instant when the lighting worked. >_> This video has the right lighting: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVshlzP1UeU
IR and Per-Pixel lighting don't change the issue.

- Status changed from New to Invalid
Tested on latest master, 1x IR + RealXFB fixes all of the graphical corruption that I can see. Performance is pretty bad though; fast texture cache seems to help a lot speed wise.
As this was for the white line around the screen + forehead corruption, I'm considered the issue closed.

Can you make a new issue then? The original issue has two different things. The white border is definitely fixed, and I do see SOME dots in the distance with the flashlight at 1x IR. If we make a new issue for that, I think I can definitely accept it. I don't like this issue as it has a lot of misinformation on how the bug looks, and mentions two defects at once.
