This seems to have been posted on the wiki already but I don't see any existing issue reports for the problem.

#2 Updated by 30zaozabot about 7 years ago

Yeah, i posted it on wiki. Added issue link

#3 Updated by pauldacheez about 7 years ago

One of the videos on the wiki page shows tail light trails appearing fine in Dolphin... on D3D9. :\

#4 Updated by 30zaozabot about 7 years ago

yes, but i searched through comments and description but couldn't find dolphin version or specs. i've tested the game again on versions that should work accordingly to wiki entries, but 3.0-204, 3.0-547 and 3.5 had the same glitch. d3d9, d3d11 and ogl didn't make any difference

#5 Updated by 30zaozabot about 7 years ago

as user Kolano added to wiki page, this glitch should not occure on 4.0-146 and prior versions with d39d, but i just tested it but issue is still there.

Other people aren't running into the issue though, so, I wonder what's going on.

#7 Updated by 30zaozabot about 7 years ago

What dolphin versions does those "other people" use. Most of the youtube videos featuring NFS The Run on Dolphin have this glitch
