Game Name?
Just Dance

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
Dancers are pierced by vertical and horizontal lines. Setting "Anisotropic filtering" to "1" and turning off "Force texture filtering" doesn't help.

What did you expect to happen instead?
Dancers should not glitch

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.Set "Anisotropic filtering" to "1" and turn off "Force texture filtering"
2.Run the game
3.Select any game mode
4.Dancers are corrupt

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?
Revisions till 4.0-1843 worked fine.

What are your PC specifications? (including, but not limited to: Operating
System, CPU and GPU)
Windows 8.1 x64, 8Gb Ram, Intel Core i5-3470, Nvidia Geforce GTX 760

I can confirm this in 4.0-6820.

The lines move position if the internal resolution is adjusted, but seem to be present regardless of that setting (though wider with 1x).

Ok. found it. In 4.0-1146 game runs perfectly, in dolphin-master-4.0-1192-x64 this bug appears. I couldn't find builds between 1146 and 1192, were they deleted or smth?

The number is incremented per commit. In this case, the PR that made 4.0-1192 had 45 commits.

During some recent testings with Just Dance 2 and 3 I noticed the dancers from songs that came on disc have the lines on them but DLC songs doesn't. Also noticed that Just Dance 4 is completely exempt from this issue, even through it internally shares the same engine from Just Dance 2 and 3 (for coincidence, Just Dance 4 introduced a more realistic visual style, so I'm guessing this change was accompanied of a switch to a different video format that doesn't experience this issue)...

This also seems to effect Zumba Fitness (and perhaps other titles).

It seems like it may effect video segments generally (I presume that's what the dancers are). It's most clearly visible in the long video after a delay on the main menu. With IR x1 I get a vertical line of videos that seems offset from where it should appear.

The number of lines is reduced by but it doesn't completely solve this issue. More specifically, with that additional lines that show up on Nvidia devices are gone, but the ones that show up on other drivers (including the Microsoft Basic Render Driver) do still appear. (Tested with a fifolog for Just Dance 2)
