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?
Metroid Prime Trilogy (Echoes and Corruption)

Game ID?
R3MP01

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Scan visor does not work properly. It is unable to scan 60% of the items (excluding creatures). When i press the button to scan nothing happens, only the visor cursor moves a little. For example i cannot scan Samus's Gunship

What did you expect to happen instead?
Scan visor should be able to scan all objects properly so as to complete game logbook

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.Running game in Direct3D
2.scanning anytime in-game
3.usually occurs with large objects in game like war golems

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?
Dolphin 4.0-6930 and 4.0-6988

Does using an older version of Dolphin solve your issue? If yes, which
versions of Dolphin used to work?
Seems to work ok on Direct3D9 on Dolphin 4.0.2

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)
Intel Core i7 4710HQ - 3.5GHz
NVidia Geforce GTX 860M
8Gb ddr3l RAM
windows 8.1

Is there any other relevant information? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files)
[Upload big files to a hosting service and post links here!]
Cant really take a screenshot of it.

History

#1 Updated by kostamarino over 4 years ago

Did you perhaps open your graphic settings window after running the game? That overrides the default settings for the game, it needs efb to ram for the scan visor to work properly.

#2 Updated by JMC4789 over 4 years ago

It could be anti-aliasing causing it.

#3 Updated by mimimi over 4 years ago

Yeah, anything that changes how the game looks could cause this. So disable AA, AF, force filtering, per pixel lightning etc. and try again.

#4 Updated by RISHAB20C96J over 4 years ago

I did not open the graphic settings while playing the game.

I have the following enhancements enabled:

forced texture filtering
Scaled EFB copy

The visor works on OpenGL but its slow as hell

#5 Updated by RISHAB20C96J over 4 years ago

Also The latest iteration does not have EFB to RAM only option.

All it says : Store EFB copies to Texture only.

Disabling this option says "Store EFB copies to RAM (and Texture)"

I have disabled this option

#6 Updated by RISHAB20C96J over 4 years ago

I WOULD LIKE TO CLEARLY STATE THE FACT THAT THE SCAN VISOR IN ECHOES AND CORRUPTION WORKS PERFECTLY FINE IN 4.0-6312 IN DIRECT3D !!! There Seems to be a problem after that i guess since 6535 does not work properly.

Someone Please look into the problem in the latest versions of the emulator regarding the scan visor problem in Direct 3D

#7 Updated by pauldacheez over 4 years ago

The most interesting thing I can see in there is depth inversion for D3D. If toggling "Fast Depth Calculation" on/off has any effect, you can probably blame 4.0-6422. https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/commit/0b61a0dfc591cbbac7a450bb8b5a7166c9504e51

You are right !!! It is because of the version that brought about D3D Deapth Inversion as the issue only seems to occur after that change was brought in. I believe that the develpers should be notified of this issue before the next STABLE iteration is launched. I tested 15 different versions and tried to pinpoint the issue and managed to hit the nail on the head with the D3D deapth inversion. Versions before 6422 work perfectly fine running Metroid Prime Trilogy in 1080p.

#9 Updated by mempf.com over 4 years ago

Can confirm in my testing Dolphin 4.0-6422 broke the scan visor for many objects in MP2 and MP3.

This is more a note for me than anyone else.

This is broken again in master.... In the 5.0 release everything works as expected, but when playing on master, the scan visor will scan seemingly random objects in a room. I'll start bisecting this to see where it breaks. I can get an upload of the problem sometime this week (assuming it's needed).

#18 Updated by JosJuice over 2 years ago

Krakn, that problem is already tracked as https://bugs.dolphin-emu.org/issues/10235

#19 Updated by clearleaf about 2 years ago

Hi everyone. I'm not a developer and I don't know how bug tracking works so I apologize if it's rude to post this here, but since this is the first search engine result people will see when trying to find the solution to this "bug," I want to share my solution here.
Rebind L and R as digital buttons instead of analogue triggers.
I experienced this issue while using a Dualshock 4 (PS4 controller) with the L and R shoulder buttons bound as analogue triggers. With this setup, the game would react to squeezing the L button, but it didn't seem to go past the threshold the game wanted to activate the actual scanning. Even if I lowered the threshold in controller settings this would still happen. I also experienced this problem in other games like Pikmin 2 where I couldn't go between menus because you need to "click" L or R all the way in to do so.
Once again I apologize if this is out of place but I don't want people to think Dolphin is broken when it's probably an issue with the DS4 or the DS4Windows program.

#20 Updated by JosJuice about 2 years ago

It's possible to get the problem of being unable to scan due to not mapping the buttons correctly, but this issue report is about a different reason for being unable to scan. Anyway, I would recommend mapping each button to both the analog and digital variant.
