Known Issues

Heavy crashing

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Major
  • Description: Crashes pretty often. Happens because of spikes in VRam use.
  • Workaround:
  1. If you get lots of crashes during license tests use a lower internal resolution in GSdx or use ZeroGS or ZZOgl. expect much slower speeds from using the last two.
  2. In GSdx, Hardware AA causes the game to crash a lot. Set the AA level to 0. Running the game with native resolution seems to help as well.
  3. In Windows XP, even in native resolution, you may get instant crashes when starting races if you don't have enough VRam. Using a custom resolution lower than 512x512 seems to help.
