Game description: Join anti-Umbrella search and pursuit team agent, Bruce MacGavin, as he encounters a new layer of Umbrella's insidious activities. In this all-new Resident Evil first-person action-shooter, you must search, sneak, and use battle moves to regain control of a sea-jacked cruise ship lost in the Atlantic. As you progress through the game, you'll be able to upgrade your weapon. And should you find yourself trapped amongst hordes of zombies and mutant beasts, your aim better be dead on--or you're gone.

Known Issues

Thin vertical lines

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Using high resolution in GSdx brings some thin lines over the screen. Also FMVs can be stretched on the right side.
  • Workaround: Needs specific custom resolutions like 1260x1260, 1200x1200, 1020x1020 or "Native" res. In older GSdx versions it was 1270x1270 and others. Don't use HW AA, it will cause the problem even in "Native" resolution. Or just use "Align Sprite" HW Hack.

Letterbox problems

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Using a custom resolution, including typing in the native, causes what can best be described as a letterbox on the bottom of the screen to appear. This letterbox occasionally captures a part of what it is supposed to, but stays there until something else is captured.
  • Workaround: This problem appears to be fixed in 1.7.0 dev.
