What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.
In e.g. the first level, "Police station", in the stage just after you passed the burning building, you walk along a balcony until at the end, you can cling to a pipe to cross the street canyon. Near the corner with the pipe, the screen suddenly starts jumping between 4:3 and some widescreen mode. This stops after you pass the canyon. The next part where this happens intensively is the stage after you slid down the elevator and find yourself in a supply closet of sorts, where Lambert rescinds his street order and you have to pick the lock of the door. Go though the door and the aspect ratio starts to flicker hard.
What steps will reproduce the problem?
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?
I use 5.0-1316. 5.0 has the same bug.
What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)
i5-2500, GTX970 (v375.10), Fedora 25 x86_64
Is there any other relevant information? (e.g. logs, screenshots,

I was going to mark this as wontfix because games sometimes are weird like this... but the more I read the issue the more I wonder if the heuristic is doing something really wrong. Pinging the features creator for thoughts. If you could capture a fifolog of it switching, that'd be cool too because we'd be able to see what the game is seeing.
