Game description: Legends tell of a demon swordsman named Sparda, who awoke to justice and rebelled against the devil, waging a one-man support of the human world. Now, 2,000 years later, a dark figure named Dante--private investigator of the supernatural--finds clues that the devil is rallying to rise up again against mankind. By Dante's demon blood, you enter this dark realm of demonic marionettes, unearthly phantoms, grim reapers, and other retched souls. Transform to a demon state to inflict devastating attacks on enemies in this gothic battle of good against evil.

USA v02.00(14/06/2004), There are 2 instances where the game hangs after an FMV scene. Skipping these will solve the problem. Aside from the one mentioned above, there is a case of the "shaky" screen and a white "after-image". This can be fixed by enabling Interlacing-->Bob tff and HW Hacks-->Half-pixel Offset.

Delay VIF1 stalls. Runs above full speed. IPU's are very buggy and can hang in an instant. Getting past intro screens to the menu and ingame is random. Sometimes it makes it, sometimes it doesn't. Had to use a couple fixes to get past the warning screen.

Runs at a decent speed. Only way to run the game is to quickly press select after starting a new game to skip the intro video. Some other videos also seem to hang. Skip Mpeg hack doesn't work.

Didn't notice any slowdown playing at all. Noticed an occasional bugged effect (appears as a weird square on glowing objects) that wasn't consistent and the occasional minor shadow glitch, but nothing too noticeable. Darkshadows

The game runs at full speed of 1620p (3K) 60 FPS, without brakes, bugs or freezes. But there is a minus - the game is a little blurry due to the hardware mode, but this does not greatly affect the game. Chern40+7

The top of the screen (where the HUD is/would be) doesn't seem to upscale when you increase the resolution, making it appear blurry. The same happens at the bottom of the screen in cutscenes with subtitles. However, this is barely noticeable, and probably isn't a problem at all at native resolution or in software mode. Otherwise perfect - full speed, fully playable. PandoraGTX

Known Issues

Broken effect

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: During the ending cutscene (ingame graphics), Dante is the only one that should be glowing purple, but instead the whole room glows purple as well.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, set Renderer to "OpenGL (Hardware)" and Blending Unit Accuracy to "Full". Or switch to Software mode by pressing F9 ingame.

Fixed issues

Blurry top and bottom of screen

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: When upscaling, a portion of the top of the screen (where the HUD resides) doesn't upscale along with the rest of the game, appearing blurry. The same happens with another portion at the bottom of the screen during cutscenes when subtitles appear.
  • Workaround: The issue has been resolved as of the 26th of April in 2022 in build 1.7.2682 and higher. For older instances, refer to the following forum post where you'll find a cheat that will allow you to toggle the HUD with a button combination.

Game hangs in FMVs

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Affected Game Versions: PAL
  • Description: The game will hang at the end of several FMV's.
  • Workaround: Go to Config > Emulation Settings > Speedhacks tab, disable preset at the bottom left of the window if necessary, then set the "EE Cyclerate" slider to -1. Or skip these FMV's by pressing Select.

Small box overlay

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: A small window containing the in-game text messages and subtitles appears usually near the top of the screen.
  • Workaround: This has been fixed in recent v1.5.0 git builds. For older versions go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, and set Internal Resolution to Native.
  • Alternatively press SELECT, go to the options menu, and wait for 8 seconds before exiting.
