Europe v01.70(27/02/2003), MTVU, INTC Spin Detection, Enable Wait Loop Detection, mVU Flag Hack, Goes from Ingame to Playable. Game works fine at a good speed, very dark however due to light being removed via CRC patch. I recommend you enable Shadeboost and put the brightness slider to about 85 to achieve the brightness seen in the screenshot above.

  • The game's native widescreen option is Vert- (it crops the top and bottom of the 4:3 image), meaning less visible viewing area than when played in 4:3.

Known Issues

Semi-transparent images

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: Reflections and/or semi-transparent images can cover the screen at random.
  • Workaround: Set Skip Draw to 3 under HW Hacks to remove the effect. This causes a couple minor rendering issues but fixes the larger problem. For the PAL version, use Shadeboost to set the Brightness to ~85.
