BIOS: USA 2.30, Without the “VU I bit Hack avoid constant recompilation (Crash Team Racing)” gamefix the game has severe graphical issues and is unplayable. The framerate is a consistent 60 fps without any stuttering. I also tested on higher resolutions, also with no framerate/stuttering issues. There is a weird repeating filter over the screen and on some textures, this is especially noticeable with higher resolutions. I do not know if this behavior is intended, or a bug. Unsure if I should rate this as playable or perfect.

Fixed Issues

No visible menu, broken graphics in-game.

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Major
  • Description: The menu is invisible, but still usable. if you manage to start a race the game graphics are almost completely broken, with only some polygons close to the screen visible-
  • Workaround: Update to the latest nightly version of PCSX2.
