Japan v02.20(10/02/2006) In the begining of the game PCSX2 is not rendering chairs and tables and becouse of that you can't make it to next level.

BIOS: USA 2.30, The game works up until the first level where you have to destroy some chairs and tables. These objects do not spawn however, causing you to be stuck here. I've tested out Direct3D11 (Hardware/Software), and OpenGL (Hardware/Software), and various Rounding/Clamping modes, but nothing seems to work for this issue as of yet. Ryudo

GSdx build-in Europe v02.00(14/06/2004), Perfect, Runs at full speed of 1620p (3K) 60 FPS, no brakes, bugs or freezes. There are no more problems in the first level (with the statue and tables). After fixing in the first level, in the second level, a Black wall appears behind Shrek after talking with the Cat, and this is also a problem at other levels, I checked it myself. But in emulator build v1.7.2090, this problem was fixed in Automatic fixes, But if you have old emulator build v1.7.0 use VU Rounding to Nearest. The game was 100% complete, there were no crashes, errors or freezes, you can play safely.

Fixed Issues

Chairs and tables do not spawn in the first level and audio bugs

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Severe
  • Description: In the first level of the game, right after the tutorial section where you learn how to fight, some chairs and tables are supposed to spawn which you have to destroy. These objects however do not spawn, causing you to be stuck in this section of the game. This issue affects both the PAL and NTSC versions.
  • Workaround: Update to the latest nightly version of PCSX2.

Black wall

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Major
