[edit] Problems

[edit] Incorrect Volume Compared to Item Roulette

When racing, the item roulette, in comparison to the rest of the sounds heard during a race, may not be the correct volume. Use LLE audio to hear the correct audio output.

[edit] Dashing Bug

When dashing for over two seconds, the dash may suddenly stop in the middle of a turn. Disabling Idle Skipping helps, but it doesn't fix the problem entirely. Only occurs in slower system configurations that cannot maintain fullspeed. See issue 5610. Fixed in unknown revision.

[edit] Dark Characters/Karts

In D3D, characters and karts may appear dark at random. Multiplayer increases chances of seeing it, but it can happen anywhere. OpenGL is not affected. See issue 6269. Fixed as of 4.0-2421.

[edit] Ghost Desyncs

Ghosts do not follow the track, hitting walls, going off cliffs, and even going the wrong way. There is no known solution at this time. See issue 6290 and issue 3122. Fixed with 4.0-2729.

[edit] Music Stops

When using DSP HLE, the music in race is not always played. It only plays the first time in the first race, but then doesn't loop as expected. To fix this, use DSP LLE. Fixed with 4.0-1300.

[edit] Configuration

Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed. Please see the performance guide for an overview of performance related settings. A full list of options is available at Template:Config/doc
