Known Issues

Extra pixels and lines in HUD and menu items

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: The in-game HUD, inventory screen, and some menu options have various extra pixels and black lines, generally around the edges. Some are even apparent in software mode. They get worse if texture filtering is fully checked.
  • Workaround: Using the WildArmsOffset hardware hack half-option fixes most of these but causes the surface of water to stutter and jump around and loading bars to mess up.
