Game description: Based on a true story, Fatal Frame recounts Miku's investigation for her brother Mafuyu, who has been missing for two weeks. Her latest clue leads her to the abandoned Himuro mansion, a place that local townsfolk fear. Gifted with a supernatural sixth sense, you'll guide Miku as she explores the areas in the mansion where Mafuyu was last seen investigating the disappearance of three other people. Armed with only a camera, you must discover the connection between mysterious disappearances, restless spirits, and ritual sacrifices.

Corsair 8GB DDR3 1600MHz, BIOS: USA 2.00. Looks and plays perfect at 60 FPS, but in D3D11 Hardware Rendering mode is extremely difficult or even impossible to focus on Ghosts.

Bugs: •Can't focus on Ghosts while in Hardware Rendering mode - Work around: Switch to Software Rendering as soon as there's a ghost in sight and then revert back to Hardware mode for extra eye candy (just press "F9") •Some vertical lines in some sprites while in Hardware Rendering mode. - Work around: Switch to Software Rendering

Black lines on some textures and ghost faces when you use upscaling. To avoid that, use a resolution of 1260x••••.

ASUS MAXIMUS VI HERO, 6GB DDR3-1333, BIOS: USA 2.30, It works but the camera issue is a real serious problem. None of the workarounds ever truly worked for me in Hardware Mode so I had to resort to just playing this game in Software Mode to completely avoid the problem entirely. This is honestly the recommended thing to do because there's just too many issues with the camera in Hardware Mode. If you use one workaround you will cause another issue like invisible ghosts, etc. Ryudo

BIOS: USA 2.30. Very much playable. 60 FPS in hardware mode, except when fighting ghosts, where it would dip to 40 FPS. I switched to software mode during those parts to get back to 60 FPS. Some hidden ghosts also wouldn't get shot without switching to software mode first. The final boss fight still crashes if you enter Finder mode while facing away from the gate. LilLymphocyteB

Known Issues

Freeze at the Final Boss

  • Status: Active
