Known Issues

Broken character textures

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Characters uniforms appear distorted from a certain distance.
  • Workaround: This can be resolved in recent v1.5.0 git builds. Please report the region of the game and the games CRC code[8-digit hexadecimal code between brackets in the PCSX2 log window title bar] on the Discussion page or in a test report so this can be automatically resolved in the future. To manually enable the fix, go to Config > Video(GS) > Plugin Settings, and set Mipmapping to "Basic". For older versions set Renderer to Software modes by selecting one of the "(Software)" options and check that Mipmapping is enabled. Fine in 1.7
