Winlogo.png Test configuration on Windows:

PCSX2 version: 0.9.7 3113 beta
Graphics by GSDX: r3063
Sound by SPU2-X: r3117 1.4.0
Pad plugin is Lilypad: r2930 0.1.0
DVD plugin is LINUZ Iso CDVD: 0.9.0

Comments: There is a shaking problem in game, but it can be fixed by choosing Bob tff interlace mode in gsdx. The game is extremely GPU intensive, If having low FPS, try running in native resolution mode, scaling also creates tiling in the GUI and purple haze around GUI objects. DX10 mode fixes some UI problems such as the map and the levels introduction text. Hack comments: MTVU gives a huge speed up, EE Cycle Rate set to 3 has no effect on sound or FMV's

Linlogo.png Test configuration on Linux:

PCSX2 version: 1736
Graphics by ZZogl: 182
Sound by SPU2-X: untested

Comments: There is color dithering in menu (triangle button) in city, it's caused by No Target Resolving. But without NTR city persons become ugly. Hack comments: No Target Resolving should be on
