Trivia

  • Original names: 잭 3 (SCKA-20040)
  • The in-game widescreen option crops the top and bottom of the 4:3 image, meaning there is less visible viewing area than when played in 4:3.


Known Issues

Glitchy eyes

  • Workaround: This can be resolved in recent v1.5.0 git builds. Go to Config -> Video (GS) -> Plugin Settings, set Renderer to "OpenGL (Hardware)", CRC Hack Level is set to "Partial" or "Automatic", and make sure Blending Unit Accuracy is set to at least "Basic".

Messed up textures.

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
