Known Issues

Texture filtering causes some bugs

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: When upscaling, lines appear around the text. This can be resolved by using Align Sprite=Full/Half (which will cause text to look blurry) or, as a better option, using the TC / Texture offset hack set to 0500-0500. Portrait and a lot of text is unreadable unless you set Texture Filtering to Nearest or Bilinear (ps2). In previous versions it was also apparently possible to set the wild arms offset to half to fix this, but the option seems to have been removed.
  • Workaround: TC / Texture offset hack (0500-0500), or use native resolution.
