1.7.0 GSdx 64-bit 1.2.0 SPU2-X 2.0.0 Runs flawlessly at 3x naive resolution with all settings default (including MTVU disabled), though requires the "EE timing hack" gamefix enabled to prevent crashes when loading certain races from garage with a handful of parts. FuzzyWuggzy

Known Issues

Garage Loading Race Crash

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Game locks up when loading select courses directly from garage menu with certain parts equipped, seems to mainly affect the "Hot Rod" but happens with other parts as well.
  • Workaround: The "EE timing hack" from within the "Game Fixes" menu mitigates the problem, but doesn't outright fix it, instead lowering the rate of the game crashing from every time to sometimes, making the races only accessible from the menu at least playable, save or save-state before loading just to be safe.
