Known Issues

Misaligned text and vertical lines in menus

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: The game renders menus in a funky way consisting of stripes, and their alignment horizontally isn't great, with visible cutoffs/overlaps on any text and sprites rendered.
  • Workaround: You can improve the situation considerably by setting the Texture Offsets to X:500 and Y:500. Causes negligible misalignment of the health/musou bars, easily ignored.

Flickering FMVs

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: All FMVs flicker.
  • Workaround: This has been resolved in recent PCSX2 v1.5.0 git builds. For older versions go to Config > Emulation Settings > Game Fixes tab, turn on "Enable manual game fixes" and enable the "Switch to GSdx Software rendering when an FMV plays" fix. Alternatively temporarily switch to Software mode during FMVs by pressing the F9 key.
