Game description: Two men, once friends, now have their fates tied together by the death of a young maiden. Each man holds the key to a sacred glyph that, when combined with the other two, can open the Gateway of Chaos and lead the people to the Red Moon. You play one of the glyph keepers, Seig Warheit, a young knight that can summon and command seven different warrior legions. Through 13 levels, you'll encounter hordes of enemies in real-time 3D battles.

Any resolution higher than native causes several vertical lines across the screen. Half-pixel offset in the HW Hacks remedies this with no apparent side effects. No matter what setting or plugin is used, there is always a huge ugly square texture under the player's legions. , Good stable FPS with some light speedhacks. Without speedhacks, large amounts of enemies cause slowdowns. Norro

As stated by a previous tester vertical lines are a pretty common issue with this game. To remove them without any other graphical errors one can use the solution listed by the Issue further down the screen. However, if one is willing to accept a bit of lower accuracy then they can also enable Half-Pixel Offset, which will cause a strange white line around the left and top sides of the screen to appear and disappear throughout gameplay but will allow for Resolution changes without any other issues. Only tested for about an hour, but as someone who completed this game on an actual console because it was a Christmas gift I wholeheartedly believe that is the maximum amount of time that should be put into it. Ran at full speed with very minimal frame loss. 5x Native, 16x Anisotropic Filtering, EE Cyclerate -1, VU Cycle Stealing 0, all Hacks except Fast CDVD. GuycoolSpore2
