Performance is very inconsistent on 0.9.7+ even using speedhacks, but with revision r4865+ the MTVU speedhack provides a ~100% increase in speed. Without MTVU enabled, a 3.8Ghz Quad CPU drops to 40 FPS when looking at the school or running about in town. With MTVU enabled, the game runs at about 90 FPS in these same areas. Squall leonhart

Known Issues

Misaligned depth blur effect

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: The game's depth blur effect isn't emulated precisely in Hardware rendering and causes blue shift on the last couple columns of pixels on the right edge of the screen, and stretches too far off of distant models when upscaling, introducing considerable ghosting. This ghosting effect is much more worse and noticeable in "OpenGL" and "Vulkan" Hardware renderers.
  • Workaround: The effect can be removed entirely by setting the Skipdraw range to 6 and 6. Doesn't appear to break anything else.

Incorrect snow rendering in Chapter III in Hardware mode

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: The snow is rendered incorrectly in Chapter III in Hardware mode, making it appear to be much darker and dim than it needs to be, lacking it's bright white color, saturation in certain time of day and proper blue tint in the night.
  • Workaround: Set renderer to Software mode in Config > Graphics Settings.

Fixed Issues

Hattrick vs. Galloway mission in Chapter II is unbeatable

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Chapter II in the Hattrick vs. Galloway mission is unbeatable; one of the objectives is to break the trophy case and take the empty bottle.
  • Workaround: Set "EE Clamping" settings to "Full" and "VU" to "Extra + Preserve Sign" in the emulation settings.

Missing background blending effect

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: The game's background blending effect doesn't normally work in hardware mode.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, set CRC Hack Level to either "None" or "Minimum". Alternatively set Renderer to any of the "(Software)" options.

Chapter 3 snow glitch

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: In Chapter 3 there is a glitch due to snow (tested in Bully PAL, PCSX2 v1.6.0).
  • Workaround: Download patched GSdx plugin and save it in Plugins folder. Go to Config > Plugins/BIOS Selector, set GS to "bully-pal".
