Description

Game Name?
SpongeBob SquarePants: Revenge of the Flying Dutchman

Game ID?
GSQE78

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong in few words.
The game freezes when trying to start a new game, or when trying to enter any area through the hidden level select. The game consistently freezes when using Debug Dolphin and consistently doesn't when using regular Dolphin. This is the only game that behaves differently depending on whether or not Debug Dolphin is being used, and I can't even begin to imagine why.

The Memory Watch, breakpoints and cheats have all been disabled/cleared, but the freeze still occurs. Every time the freeze happens, emulation always drops to the same 4FPS - 5VPS - 8%.

What did you expect to happen instead?
Expected the game not to freeze.

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. Proceed to the main menu hub area (the Krusty Krab's kitchen.)
  2. Walk over to the New Game option (the red shape.)
  3. If using Debug Dolphin, the game should freeze. If using regular Dolphin, you will start a new game as normal and the intro cutscene will play.

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?
4.0-7202
4.0-7195
4.0-7167
