pcsx2-v1.3.1-1498-g52be531-windows-x86 GSDX SPU2-X Recommended speedhacks + MTVU. The game is perfectly playable without any issues. Runs above full speed. Very minor issue with text having a wavy appearance in all software renderers. Pausing the emulator and resuming in the Chess Battlefield mode will cause the game to blackscreen.
