We've discovered that
-Resident Evil 4 Wii Edition (discovered by MaJoR)
-Super Mario Galaxy
-Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Have or had the white dots in their banners in Dolphin game list.

I'm sure more games are affected by this.

We're seeing white dots in several game banners (apparently only) on Windows PC. I've tested on OS X and there doesn't seem to be any and also tested on Ubuntu (only tested on Smash Bros.'s banner using only latest Dolphin build) and neither is there any.

Even more strange is that the white dots are still on top of the game banner highlighted in blue.

We've almost had it down to Dolphin 4.0-78, but just discovered that Super Mario Galaxy have had the problem pre-4.0-78 that were long gone in later builds.

I think it's been a problem with Dolphin all along. Though, I'm not sure about the oldest Dolphin builds.

See screenshot here:

No screenshot for Ubuntu as it's inaccessible from Windows OS right now, though, I could retrieve it another time but I don't think I'd bother to. Last time I've checked, there's no dot unlike Windows in the latest dev build.

Opps, I meant to say that MaJoR has discovered more than I do. I don't own RE4 Wii Edition. She did lot of work including bisecting between versions and even discovered Super Mario Galaxy had the problem on older build!

I was tired so I couldn't think correctly.

And np rukario! I can't test much these days with dialup, but, I could just try this with my bank and bisect is super quickly. :)

PR 3111 might fix this issue. I'm not sure, because I haven't looked especially closely for while pixels.

PR 3111 was merged in 4.0-8263, so I'm going to assume that this is fixed. Please comment if it isn't.

Fixed based on assumption? What's more surprising is that it isn't. Just checked, lol. 4.0-8297 and 4.0-8263
