Mario Kart 64 Graphical Errors

I’m currently having an issue with MK64 where the background images for the title/main menu screens won’t load (images). Only the dynamic parts of the display (waving flag and character select frame) show up. The game runs fine once I get in to an actual race, but I’m at a loss for what options govern these two screens. I’ve tried changing the video driver and replacing the rom file, neither have worked.

What platform/OS? What video drivers have you tried? Can you post a log? Does ParaLLEl-N64 core act the same way?

Thanks for taking the time to respond.

My system is running Retroarch via Batocera Linux.

Here is the log for MK:

For reference, here’s the log for Bajo Kazooie game running normally:

I tried the Running through the ParaLLEl-N64 core yielding the same issue. Video drivers tested were gl, glcore, gl1, vulkan, sdl2, xvideo, and x11

Hmm, i don’t really see anything suspicious in those logs (thanks for posting those, btw) but FWIW I’m not able to reproduce it in Ubuntu 64-bit using GL.

Weird. I guess I’ll try and dig more into the config to see why mk is being treated differently. There has to be something…regardless, thanks for your help!

issue solved, leaving this for anyone that may find it in the future: There was an overlay file in the same directory as my RA config. Deleting this file solved the problem.

waaaat? That’s really strange. I’m glad you got it going, regardless.
