Game description: Zero no Tsukaima: Maigo no Period to Ikusen no Symphony (English - The Familiar of Zero: The Lost Child and Thousands of Symphonies) is a visual novel developed and published by Marvelous Entertainment for the PS2. Released in 2008, it is the third of three Familiar of Zero visual novels. The story is a separate continuation from the anime and follows the adventures of Saito and Louise when they are tasked with checking out a library after reports of ghosts inhabiting it arise. During the search Louise goes missing, and when they find her Saito and crew discover Louise has lost her memory. The librarian tells them they will need to go into the various books in the library to recover Louise's memory. Saito and friend's adventure into the world of the books then begins. Notable changes from the other entries in the series include the "tsundere meter" being reworked from a notched bar to a gradient circle gauge, while also lacking the turn based combat sections from the first entry.

Known Issues

Stuttering

  • Type: Note (not an issue)
  • Description: While the game runs without bugs, it often accesses the disk, leading to stuttering if you don't have the ROM stored on a fast drive such as a solid state
  • Workaround: This could be worked around if PCSX2 had the option load the entire game into RAM instead of reading from the disk, however for now the best solution is to store the game on a fast solid state drive
