Description

The "Skip BIOS" checkbox in the GameCube tab of the general config is only supposed to be enabled when a BIOS file is available (and the core isn't running): https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/blob/bfa9cc27361415a78ddb366764be6f929bf78d6a/Source/Core/DolphinWX/Config/GameCubeConfigPane.cpp#L74

However, https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/4427/commits/bfa9cc27361415a78ddb366764be6f929bf78d6a made it so that the checkbox always is enabled as long as the core isn't running, ignoring the BIOS file check.

As a note to anyone who wants to fix this: Due to https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/5492#issuecomment-306988942, it should be possible to enable skipping when there's no IPL file, but it shouldn't be possible to disable skipping when there's no IPL file. (Before the 5.0-1259 regression, it was always impossible to change the setting when there was no IPL file.)
