Pclogo.png PC specs used to test the game:

CPU: Pentium Dual-Core E2160 (1.8GHz)
GPU: Geforce 7600GT

Comments: System requirements are minimal, almost all modern video cards meet the requirements for the game.

Known Issues:

Scaling glitches

Using resolutions higher than native can give minimal glitches

  • Solution: Using the Native option in GSdx and/or disabling Texture filtering helps too.

Hang in r3878

In the emulator version 0.9.7 (specifically, build r3878), the game hangs shortly into the intro cutscene of the second map of Stellar Graveyard II ("Core Point No. 4"). Music continues playing, but neither the party in the background nor Kurtis descending in the foreground are visible, and the game will not continue pass this point.

  • Solution: Upgrading the emulator to build 4600 fixes this.

- Note: In a previous playthrough using emulator version 0.9.4 with the exact same PS2 disc, there were no problems here. It seems only to affect r3878.
