Description

Game Name?

The Smurfs: Dance Party - SDUE41

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When attempting to startup the game, and going through all the menus, you will arrive at a black screen. If RealXFB is on, you'll see "metafortress response!" This is also in the logs.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Start the game, and go through the videos.

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?

4.0-8400

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

Core i5 3570K, GTX 760, Windows 7.

Is there any other relevant information? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files)

The only thing I can ponder is whether or not the game is trying to protect us from itself. Maybe it knows the harm that it can cause, maybe it knows the damage it could do. Maybe it knows I was preparing to suffer in order to test it, and instead killed itself to protect me, the person who bought it, the person who took it in. Or maybe it's just some anti-piracy bullshit stopping me from playing a legally acquired game.
