Known Issues

Blue bars/wall

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Affected Game Versions: NTSC-J and PAL
  • Description: Blue bars/blue wall cover part of the screen in the hardware modes. Tested in 2016 and needs testing on the latest version of PCSX2, as this may no longer be an issue.
  • Workaround: Go to Config - Video (GS) - Plugin Settings menu, set Renderer to "OpenGL (Hardware)", and turn on Hardware Depth. Alternatively(for Direct 3D hardware modes), set skipdraw to 2 to make the blue wall transparent and keep the blue water effect. Or set skipdraw to 13 to completely remove the effect and thus issue or use NTSC-U version which does not have this problem.
