'''''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door''''', released in Japan as '''''Paper Mario RPG''''', is a console role-playing game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the [[Nintendo GameCube]]. ''The Thousand-Year Door'' is the fourth Mario RPG and the second in the ''Paper Mario'' series.

== Emulation Information ==
 +
=== Bounding Box Slowdown on NVIDIA Cards ===
 +
NVIDIA cards are abnormally slow during Bounding Box effects even at very low internal resolutions when using D3D11. They get dramatically slower as the internal resolution increase, even though comparable AMD graphics cards suffer no slowdown at all.  This is due to Dolphin hitting a slow path on those graphics cards. It is recommended that supported NVIDIA users use other video backends when playing games that require Bounding Box emulation to avoid that.
 +
 
 +
=== When Using Older Graphics Cards ===
 +
This game uses a feature known as "Bounding Box", which Dolphin typically uses Shader Storage Buffer Objects (SSBO) to emulate. This requires a NVIDIA GeForce 400 series or newer, a AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5000 series or newer, or a Intel Broadwell Integrated GPU (Intel HD 5300+) or newer and an operating system that supports OpenGL 4.3, D3D11, GLES 3.1, or Vulkan. On macOS, MoltenVK can be used to attain Vulkan support on the latest builds.  If Bounding Box is not emulated correctly, the game will show severe graphical glitches and won't be playable to finish.
  
'''''Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door''''', released in Japan as ''Paper Mario RPG'', is a console role-playing game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube.

 +
 
 +
Because Dolphin has gone through many variants of Bounding Box support throughout its history, it may be possible for older graphics cards to use less accurate versions of Bounding Box present in older builds.  On Android, {{revision|5.0-9322}} or newer is required for Bounding Box to function at all due to an unrelated bug. Please note that other driver issues can often cause issues with Bounding Box emulation, which can produce similar bugs to having no Bounding Box support whatsoever. In this case, updating drivers or using a different video backend may be your only recourse.
 +
 
 +
=== Riverside Station Sunset Effect ===
 +
The sunset effect in Riverside Station has a defect where non-static objects in front of it have a trail of ghosts coming off. This is not a bug in Dolphin, but a defect inherent to the way the effect is achieved, as it appears on console too. The defect is very hard to see on console (it's right above the rock in the image below) due to the low resolution and analog quality loss, but the higher internal resolution and custom HD textures allowed by Dolphin make it very obvious.

===Disappearing Punio/Invisible Punie Problem===
+
{{Problems|{{#vardefineecho:problems|
In the second chapter during the Great Boggly Tree dungeon, you come across two adjacent cells (one contains the Punie elder, the other contains 90 Punies). After you receive the red key to open the elder's cell and attempt to open it, you will most likely come across a very frustrating problem: Punio will disappear and leave you stuck in a zoomed-in screen, hindering any further progress in the game. Many frustrated Dolphin users have been searching for a fix to this graphical issue, but seemingly to no avail.
+
=== PAL60 Reverting to 50Hz ===
 +
If the PAL version of the game has been set to run at 60 Hz, it may change back to 50Hz under some circumstances. Turn off the dual core setting to avoid this issue.
 +
 
 +
=== <s>Merluvee Next Path</s> ===
 +
When using the D3D backend, asking Merluvee to tell you the next path may freeze the game. This does not occur on OpenGL or Vulkan, so use them to avoid this issue.

 +
Fixed in revision {{revision|5.0-9638}}.

The built-in Widescreen Hack causes clipping issues. The following codes work as a replacement, causing fewer issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using these codes.

There is specific revisions of Dolphin that WILL allow you to progress through this frustrating glitch: Dolphin IL {{Revision|4341}}, Dolphin IL {{Revision|4598}} and Dolphin IL {{Revision|4707}}. In these revisions players should find that Punio remains visible during the "cell-opening cutscene" and allows the game to continue normally. Unfortunately though, this revision does not fix another VERY frustrating problem: All but the main NPC punies (Punio, Elder, Puniper & Petunia) will be invisible the entire time (only Punie shadows will be visible), making it very difficult to manage all 101 of them throughout the long dungeon. The framerate will also suffer a significant drop in this dungeon, probably due to the amount of Punies (well, Punie shadows) following you around.

===Glitchy Toad/Pianta Problem===
+
<pre>
Near the end of the fifth chapter (right after the boss fight against Cortez) you find yourself forced to blow your way out of the Pirate's Grotto in the previous area before the boss which is filled with toads and the Pianta lovers. In most cases players will find that most of the toads (like the Punies in chapter 2) are invisible (only shadows). When you blow through the crack in the wall with Bobbery a cutscene plays, showing the toad next to the hole attempting to leave the cave and suggesting everyone else do the same. Now here this problem seems to vary depending on the specific build of Dolphin you're using, but in any case during the "escape sequence", one of the visible characters will suddenly start glitching back and forth and will halt you from progressing any further (you do not regain control of Mario until all the others have escaped).

Once again, only Dolphin IL {{Revision|4341}}, Dolphin IL {{Revision|4598}} and Dolphin IL {{Revision|4707}} will work. However, in this case, even using these revisions the bug will still occur, but now you can get through this troublesome glitch continuously tap A until all of the characters have proceeded through the hole.

This can happen in many transitions, like the bridge appearing animation in Petal Meadows, which achieved an astonishing 8FPS.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, released in Japan as Paper Mario RPG, is a console role-playing game developed by Intelligent Systems and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo GameCube. The Thousand-Year Door is the fourth Mario RPG and the second in the Paper Mario series.

Emulation Information

Bounding Box Slowdown on NVIDIA Cards

NVIDIA cards are abnormally slow during Bounding Box effects even at very low internal resolutions when using D3D11. They get dramatically slower as the internal resolution increase, even though comparable AMD graphics cards suffer no slowdown at all. This is due to Dolphin hitting a slow path on those graphics cards. It is recommended that supported NVIDIA users use other video backends when playing games that require Bounding Box emulation to avoid that.

When Using Older Graphics Cards

This game uses a feature known as "Bounding Box", which Dolphin typically uses Shader Storage Buffer Objects (SSBO) to emulate. This requires a NVIDIA GeForce 400 series or newer, a AMD/ATI Radeon HD 5000 series or newer, or a Intel Broadwell Integrated GPU (Intel HD 5300+) or newer and an operating system that supports OpenGL 4.3, D3D11, GLES 3.1, or Vulkan. On macOS, MoltenVK can be used to attain Vulkan support on the latest builds. If Bounding Box is not emulated correctly, the game will show severe graphical glitches and won't be playable to finish.

Because Dolphin has gone through many variants of Bounding Box support throughout its history, it may be possible for older graphics cards to use less accurate versions of Bounding Box present in older builds. On Android, 5.0-9322 or newer is required for Bounding Box to function at all due to an unrelated bug. Please note that other driver issues can often cause issues with Bounding Box emulation, which can produce similar bugs to having no Bounding Box support whatsoever. In this case, updating drivers or using a different video backend may be your only recourse.

Riverside Station Sunset Effect

The sunset effect in Riverside Station has a defect where non-static objects in front of it have a trail of ghosts coming off. This is not a bug in Dolphin, but a defect inherent to the way the effect is achieved, as it appears on console too. The defect is very hard to see on console (it's right above the rock in the image below) due to the low resolution and analog quality loss, but the higher internal resolution and custom HD textures allowed by Dolphin make it very obvious.

Problems

PAL60 Reverting to 50Hz

If the PAL version of the game has been set to run at 60 Hz, it may change back to 50Hz under some circumstances. Turn off the dual core setting to avoid this issue.

Merluvee Next Path

When using the D3D backend, asking Merluvee to tell you the next path may freeze the game. This does not occur on OpenGL or Vulkan, so use them to avoid this issue.

Fixed in revision 5.0-9638.

Enhancements

HD Texture Pack

There is a work-in-progress high definition texture modification for The Thousand Year Door on the Dolphin forums.

16:9 Aspect Ratio Fix

The built-in Widescreen Hack causes clipping issues. The following codes work as a replacement, causing fewer issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using these codes.

AR Code Fix

This code does not speed up the game in the Shhwonk Fortress.

3.0-688 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2600K NVIDIA GeForce 680 Constant random crashes. Performance wise it's perfectly playable. 60FPS+
3.0-688 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-2670QM NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M Good and playable. Used to be slow but I've changed some settings on my PC to fix. Occasional audio bugs, but not terribly bad.
3.0-801 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 NVIDIA GeForce 560 Ti Playable: full speed with minor drops, tons of audio glitches, LLE is too demanding for my system, enabling Accurate Vbeam Emulation seems to help with the sound. The music is also way too loud and makes it hard to hear some sound effects.
3.0-863 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Audio glitches with non-LLE, perfect with LLE. No slowdowns even at higher resolutions (720p). Water at Schwonk Fortress and Punies in the Great Tree still produce graphical errors. EFB to RAM reduces the graphical glitches of the punies to minor at best. Game is 100% playable in it's current state.
3.5 Windows 8 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Really smooth on Direct3D9, unlike many 3.5-x builds I tried which caused random slowdowns all over the place. Use LLE audio to fix various sound issues. To get LLE to work with this 3.0 build, I downloaded dsp_coef.bin and dsp_rom.bin from the Dolphin Source and placed it in ./User/GC/. Dolphin will display a warning when launching a ROM saying sound will be garbled because of a wrong hash, but it will be perfectly fine so just press No and play. You can download 3.0-936 from the Dolphin Old Builds. dani
3.5 Windows Vista Intel Pentium 4 @ 3.2GHz Intel GMA 82945G 12~15FPS outside, 20~25FPS in battle due to low-end system. Random crashes. Also when the little things that come at you at the beginning after the first battle they appear as EFB static on all EFB hacks. I was actually surprised to see battles at more FPS. Performance guide settings. Wiigeek336
3.5 Windows 7 AMD FX-4130 @ 4.2GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550 Ti Runs at a smooth 60FPS in everything but transitions, and in some cutscenes with big effects.
3.5-79 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti Game is playable but the music is broken, it cuts off, plays too loud or too quiet for no reason, disappears, etc. Sound effects seem to be right, but the music problem is annoying. Other than that it's fine. With LLE the music seems to be ok but it's too demanding for my system.
3.5-367 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II 1090T @ 3.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 570 DCII Runs at 60FPS.
GFX Settings: OpenGL, 4xAA, EFB to RAM no Cache, Fog Disable, OpenCL Texture Decoder(EXPERIMENTAL).
Dolphin Configuration: Dual Core ON, Idle Skipping ON, Framelimit: AUDIO, Limit using FPS, DSP HLE emulation using XAudio2.

3.5-392 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570K NVIDIA GeForce 560 Ti 100% speed, need to use LLE or sound will be glitchy (too loud, too low, music cutting off). DSound seems to be more stable under LLE emulation, sound corruption may happen after a few hours of continuous play. Some minor graphical glitches, very noticeable graphical glitch in areas with reflective water (Shhwonk Fortress underground). Some really minor stuttering even with full FPS in some areas. All these problems are very minor, the game so far is 100% playable. Herpderpus
3.5-397 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-3820QM @ 2.7GHz AMD FirePro M2000 Playable, constant 60FPS with Direct3D9 at 1600x900 resolution. Shirsakbc
3.5-402 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-3770 @ 3.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 680 Fully Playable without any graphical or Sound issues on 1080p! Played with Widescreen Hack on Direct3D 9 Plugin and DSP LLE Recompiler with DSound. StarDave
3.5-1159 Windows 7 Intel Pentium G860 AMD Radeon HD 7770 Playable at mostly full speed at 1.5x native, D3D9; and using the new DSP HLE emulation. Minor visual glitch with reflective water. No apparent audio problems that existed with HLE in older builds.
3.5-1558 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 3.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Playable: 60FPS with OpenGL (1920x1080, 9x SSAA); 60FPS with DirectX 9. Enabling Vsync on D3D9 seems to cut the framerate down to 35-40FPS, and DirectX 11 exhibits the same behavior regardless of Vsync setting (driver bug). HLE audio gets distorted after playing for around two hours and CPU is too slow for LLE.
3.5-1558 Mac OS X 10.8.4 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 3.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti Playable: 50-60FPS (1920x1080). HLE audio stutters since it's not constantly full speed.
3.5-1558 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-4650U Intel HD Graphics 5000 Playable: 55-60FPS with DirectX 9 or 11 (1440x900, without AA); 35-60FPS with OpenGL. LLE audio works well.
3.5-1558 Mac OS X 10.8.4 Intel Core i7-4650U Intel HD Graphics 5000 Not really playable; 30-45FPS.
4.0.2 Windows 7 x68 Intel Celeron G1610 @ 2.6GHz Intel HD Graphics Playable. Glitches even with BBox = true. 40FPS hivaoa

4.0-4149 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE @ 3.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Playable. FPS drops to 50% when using Paper Mode and as well when the Boo Hoos enter invisible mode. Kenny
4.0-5124 Mac OS X 10.9.2 Intel Core i5 @ 1.4GHz Intel HD Graphics 5000 Game runs near perfect, mostly at 60FPS however does slow down when using paper abilities. A couple of minor graphics errors throughout the game. However, game is not completable as it hangs indefinitely on the final boss fight. SirSpanky
4.0-5839 Windows 10 Preview AMD Athlon II X4 650 @ 3.2GHz ATI Radeon HD 4200 Game runs perfect at a constant 60FPS at all times using the Direct3D renderer. Using the OpenGL renderer causes a significant slowdown and is not recommended. No graphical errors at all on either graphics renderer. Byteandahalf
4.0-6153 Windows 8 Intel Core i7 @ 4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Using Direct3D, game runs smoothly throughout, minor (non-consistent) glitches in paper transitions, small FPS drop during bridge over Petalburg river appearance. OpenGL NOT recommended. Canopenerdude

4.0-8070 Windows 8.1 Intel Core i5-3210M @ 2.5GHz NVIDIA GeForce 610M Direct3D has a few minor graphical glitches. OpenGL no issues. wildgoosespeeder
4.0-9129 Windows 10 Intel Core i3-2120 @ 3.3GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti Game runs at a solid 60 FPS up to 2x native resolution using Direct3D11 and the other recommended configuration settings. Drops to 30-35 FPS occur when paper effects are being rendered, excluding Mario and Partners. SfaFreak
4.0-9144 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad @ 2.5GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT610 Game runs very smoothly as 50 FPS. Have experienced almost no lag. Only frame drops come from paper transitions (e.g. Bridge in Petal Meadows) BlazingDiancie
4.0-9211 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-4570 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Using D3D11 with other recommended settings, game ran perfectly with no glitches and a only a few brief fps drops. Jesse
4.0-9399 Windows 10 Intel Core i3-3110M @ 2.4GHz Intel HD Graphics 4000 Using the default graphics backend OpenGL with other recommended settings, FPS drops from 60 to 30 the exact moment that Goombella and Lord Crump finish their initial "conversation" which caused everything (walking, hammering, jumping, etc) to appear to be in slow motion. Using the graphics backend Direct3D 11 with other recommended settings, no problems thus far, although the laptop is making me sweat. mythofechelon
5.0-266 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-5820K @ 3.6GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Ran perfectly at 4K 60FPS. Encountered a few crashes randomly in fights and buying items. Brimaster2000
5.0-310 Fedora 24 (Linux 4.6.6-300) Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Ran very well at 1440p 60FPS with 4x MSAA and 16x AF. Camera on the rotating stairs in Hooktail's Castle doesn't transition upwards properly for me. Try pausing and unpausing if that happens. Favorablestream
5.0-321 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-3930K @ 3.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Runs perfectly at 1080p with 4x MSAA, using widescreen gecko code and HD texture pack. However, contrary to the information above, I get the bounding box slowdown when using OpenGL and have to use D3D11 to avoid it. Sound effects during battle randomly don't play, regardless of audio emulator engine. Techjar
5.0-666 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-3930K @ 3.8GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Game does not boot with widescreen gecko code enabled, otherwise identical to above result. Techjar
5.0-8935 Windows 10 AMD Ryzen 5 2400G @ 3.6GHz AMD Radeon RX Vega 11 Configuration: Dual core ON, 720p, 2xMSAA, 2x AF, LLE audio, game rom region JPN. Mostly 60FPS with D3D11 or Vulkan, OGL is slow. LLE audio works well, but some battle SEs like "Great!!" are dropped. All backends suffers a significant slowdown with BBox with my GPU being at a default energy-saving 400MHz clock. This can happen in many transitions, like the bridge appearing animation in Petal Meadows, which achieved an astonishing 8FPS. Turning Mario into Paper Mode or having Vivian hide you make it slower at any time. "Overclocking" GPU to the stock speed solves this and makes the game perfectly playable. amiboss
