Try toggling fast-depth/EFB2RAM, etc.

Doesn't work.

Also, as someone who hasn't played the game in a while, saying which area it is in, or how far in teh game I have to be would be nice. The whole, "how do you reproduce it, considering that the person testing may never have played the game" thing really means it. I have thousands of games on my Dolphin game list, I don't have time to memorize where every level is in every game.

I attached a save. It has all stars collected. Extract the "00010000" folder to %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%\Documents\Dolphin Emulator\Wii\title. General information about Sea Slide Galaxy:

I went through and did a general diagnostic on things. Software Renderer doesn't get around it, OGL/D3D look identical, no settings affect it. Tried a few fancy thing like FPRF in case it was CPU side, but doesn't seem to affect it.

#9 Updated by JMC4789 over 1 year ago

In latest development builds, we've added the ability to go into pure EFB Copy to RAM. this fixes the issue. Add this to gfx.ini to verify under hacks.

DisableCopyToVRAM = True

Actually just regular EFB Copies to RAM resolves it.

Unfortunately it's a slowdown for a minor effect, so I don't see anyone moving to fix it right away. You can use slower settings and it'll work, at least.
