Game description: Agents Keith Martin and Robert Baxter have been sent to find a missing agent. Christy Ryan was last heard from while uncovering a deceptive plan by Neodyne Industries to launch a network of military satellites. The world is in trouble, your fellow agent is in danger, and only you and a friend can stop this threat. Time Crisis 2, the arcade hit, is ready to deliver maximum impact!

Several graphic errors, unstable framerate, white filter in DX11 mode. Can't be played properly unless you have a powerful pc. Tried it in other PCSX2 versions and has the same error, iso is a good dump. Zerel

Use OpenGL to resolve the white fog issue. To resolve slowdowns on AMD, I had to change the PCSX2 process affinity to only 4 Cores. Worked well both with Gamepad and Sinden Lightgun using the Nuvee plugin. Darkphoenixfox
