Europe v01.70(27/02/2003), Still Playable. Game works fine at a good speed. Requires Software Mode to fix the graphics (Mipmapping), the game can be quite slow. I achieved pretty much constant full speed by putting VU Cycle Stealing to 1 and 4 Extra Rendering Threads for Software Mode (this game seems to like them a bit more than normal).

Trivia

  • Original names: ラチェット&クランク (SCPS-15037) & (SCPS-19211) & (SCPS-19316)


Known Issues

Broken textures

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Garbage textures until you stand close to objects due to GSdx not supporting mipmapping in hardware mode.
  • Workaround: This can be resolved with the latest v1.5.0 git builds. Go to Config > Video(GS) > Plugin Settings, and set Mipmapping to "Basic". Or switch to Software Mode by setting Renderer to any of the "(Software)" options. Note: To minimize the potential performance impact of Software Mode, set Rendering Threads to one less than the number of available CPU cores.

Glitched menu backgrounds

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Most menu backgrounds are glitched in GSdx hardware modes.
  • Workaround: Use software mode, or ignore it (gameplay is not affected).
