Game is able to upscale successfully at 1080P at 60FPS with only minor graphical glitches and slight stuttering. However, if the game is run at default resolutions it runs flawlessly. I observed no difference between using and not using 8-Bit textures, but your degree of success may vary. Bios v2.0 was used. Zrooney


  • Widescreen crops the top and bottom of the 4:3 image, meaning less visible viewing area than when played in 4:3.
