Game description: Learn the ways of the Wild West as a bounty hunter seeking vengeance. Red Dead Revolver tells the story of Red, a man on a mission to kill General Diego--the rogue Mexican general who murdered Red's family for gold. As Red, you'll have a variety of weapons to choose from, including pistols, rifles, shotguns, and dynamite. Dusty towns, windswept prairies, rugged saloons--the game integrates all of the elements of a classic Western movie.

Game runs well and looks great at 6X native resolution and anti strophic filtering. I did not experience any crashing with any of the intro cut scenes, but was not able to test the third mission. Bios v 2.0 was used. Zrooney

Game runs amazingly well! Emulation is near perfect, just like it runs on OpenGL Software mode but even faster, while on higher res: sometimes I put it to 8x native for the heck of it. :) GewehrRoss1

Known Issues

Weird white lines in brimstone

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Sometimes, with the hardware renderer at higher resolutions, if you get close to certain buildings in Brimstone and rotate the camera, you will see some weird white stripes on Red (The Player), but it only happens with certain positions and camera angles, and it luckily does not affect gameplay. It also happens in cutscenes.
  • Workaround: Use the Software Renderer or select internal resolution to Native(PS2).

Fixed Issues

Image ghosting

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Major
  • Description: Most objects in the game will have a ghost image.
  • Workaround: Update to the latest nightly version of PCSX2.

Performance Drops

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Severe
  • Description: After the intro, the game receives massive performance drops, making the game nearly unplayable at higher resolutions, but even when you switched to 3x native, you would experience performance drops, for example, in chapter 5, railroaded the game still receives pretty big drops.
  • Workaround: Update to the latest nightly version of PCSX2.
