Description

Game Name?

007: Quantum of Solace - RJ2E52

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Lots of flickering or blacked out character models in the distance. Sometimes they'll lose lighting when going under shade. Your own model flickers whenever you go under a different light.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

The most obvious thing you can do is turn off safe-texture cache and watch the helicopter when starting a new game. It's right after the FMV and will flicker black/white until it gets close to you.

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?

4.0.2 and 4.0-8400 both suffer from this issue.

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)

It should be noted that turning on Safe Texture Cache kills performance, but the game is very awkward to play without it.

More issues about game INIs missing required settings means more things to mark as Current...

#2 Updated by kostamarino about 4 years ago

Nice catch, the speed hit is too big though, i will try to see if a better value can be used than 512.

#3 Updated by kostamarino about 4 years ago

Damn even a value of 4096 has a few minor issues, seems inevitable to use 0 but the speed hit is too great. The game is pretty much unplayable with stc to safe.
