Known Issues

FMV Hang

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: When playing any of the game's FMVs, at some point it will hang, frozen on a single frame, audio stuck in a loop.
  • Workaround: Lowering EE Cyclerate. The lower the setting, the more videos will play until the end. Some will work with "-1", but the others will need -2" or "-3". It seems that on "-3" all of them will play out without hanging. However, the lower the setting, the more distorted the audio becomes. Alternatively, Skip MPEG hack can be activated to skip all videos.

Missing graphics in hardware mode

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Date transition screens are missing the backgrounds when using any of the hardware rendering modes.
  • Workaround: Enabling Preload Frame Data HW hack.
