1736 ZZogl 182 This is most perfectly emulated game in whole PS2 world. System requirements are minimal, almost no issues.

Known Issues

Scaling glitches

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Using resolutions higher than native can give minimal glitches
  • Workaround: Using the Native option in GSdx and/or disabling Texture filtering helps too.

Hang in r3878

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: In the emulator version 0.9.7 (specifically, build r3878), the game hangs shortly into the intro cutscene of the second map of Stellar Graveyard II ("Core Point No. 4"). Music continues to play, but neither the party in the background nor Kurtis descending in the foreground are visible, and the game will not continue at this point.
  • Workaround: Upgrading the emulator to build 4600 fixes this.

Note: Using the exact same PS2 disc there were no problems in a previous run using emulator version 0.9.4. This seems only to affect r3878.
