Game runs perfectly but has graphical artifacts that grow as you play. Doesn't hinder performance, it's just a nuisance. ninesixworm

The graphical glitches with headlights, longer line and some HUD elements ghosting can be fixed with enabling HW hacks and setting Half-screen Fix to Force-Enabled. No glitches found running at 2160p 4K. theOG123

Optimization over Graphics, Playing on a Low end notebook (Hardware/Software) see Notes . Cut-Scenes and Gameplay in gerenal are capped at 50 FPs(PAL) with a sightly frame rate drop from time to time depending on the vfx showing (Too many lights/cars) on the screen cause it to drop fps. Songs are playing fine during races.

••Note•• •v1.7 138 have better options to optimize cpu usage removing unnecessary rendering granting fps bonus; Hardware seems better than software , but since too many visuals are disabled, it looks pixelated. if you need to change any configuration during a race, pause the game, otherwise it might crash; Also, MTVU makes ALOT of difference, without it the game lags badly. Works fine even if you don't have 3+cores - tested version •v1.7 138 - out/2020

NTSC Windows 11
  • 8700K
  • RTX 2080
1.7.2313 Core Core With the aforementioned hardware, I can get roughly 240 fps uncapped. Speedhack preset: 3 + MTVU. The game runs practically flawlessly. Requires Medium+ blending in the graphics settings to avoid a darkened minimap. For hardware rendering, you'll want to set the 'Half Screen Fix' hack to "Force-Enable" to fix the broken lights. If upscaling, you'll want to enable 'Half-Pixel Offset' hack to "Special (Texture)" to ensure the headlights actually stick to the road surface and don't float slightly above (visible on curvy roads). Optionally turn 'Round Sprite' hack to "Full" as well to better center the HUD elements again. Minor inconsistencies present as opposed to software rendering, but nothing gamebreaking or super-obvious. Do note that this game is still moderately heavy in hardware requirements. coornio


Known Issues

Graphic bugs in Hardware renderers

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: While using any of the Hardware renderers, there will be a line visible that changes (gets larger) depending on the driving speed. This happens in both Direct3D and OpenGL Hardware renderers.
  • Workaround: Graphical glitches with headlights, longer line and some HUD elements ghosting can be fixed with enabling HW hacks and setting Half-screen Fix to Force-Enabled.
