Game description: An epic battle rages between the Forseti and the Muspell as the oceans rise and land disappears. The Forseti compel you to help protect their remaining land by taking charge of a powerful war machine--the Battle Engine. Whether in walking or in flying mode, you have access to an array of destructive weapons to use in expansive environments. You'll command a device so powerful and advanced that your battlefield decisions will shape the direction of each engagement and, ultimately, the entire war.
Battle Engine Aquila is a mechanized shooter taking place in a larger battlefield. The player plays only a single, yet important, role in a larger war effort. A large part of the gameplay consists of supporting and being supported by the allied forces. Players will have to fight navel, air, and ground forces in both modes of their battle engine.
||1.0.0 r5350 and 1.1.0||GSdx D3D11 Hardware r5334||
||BIOS: USA 1.60 07/02/2002, HACKS: Speedhack: MTVU Enabled (MultiThread), Had to enable MTVU to get the game to run at decent FPS, also, skipping the cinematics and bumbling through the broken unusable menu got us into the game, which finally allowed us to play. Make sure Multi-Thread is on before playing, especially if you have more than 3 cores. The game will only function at about 30FPS if this setting is not on. Main menu is completely unusable, but the rest of the game functions as soon as you get out of the menu system.||TheOmegaOne|

||Status goes from menus to ingame., Ingame looks perfect, but menus to get there are totally broken, making saving/resuming a game very hard.|
||Europe v01.70(27/02/2003), MTVU, INTC Spin Detection, Enable Wait Loop Detection, mVU Flag Hack, Playable. Requires VU clamping set to "Extra" to fix menus, FMV's flicker in hardware mode, aside from that it's fine.|
