Game description: Kuon is based on an ancient type of Japanese horror story called Kwaidan. The setting is a dark and gruesome mansion in the Japanese town of Kyoto where mutated creatures and other horrors lurk. The game is set during the Heian Period (794 to 1185) of ancient Japan.
In Kuon's Yin Phase (Chapter of Shadow), Utsuki and Kureha arrive at the Fujiwara mansion to find their father. At the same time, during the game's Yang Phase (Chapter of Light), Doman's disciples, including Sakuya and her older brother, enter the manor to investigate the strange incidents occurring there. Utsuki and Sakuya become separated from their respective groups, and occasionally meet one another. (from Wikipedia)

- Type: Graphical issue with upscaled graphics
- Affected Game Versions: All
- Description: Ghosting issue with characters. Also a white line appears at the top and left edges of the screen (only in upscale mode).
- Solution: Needs texture coordinates offset set to values 300 300 in GSdx hacks section. Unfortunately the Half pixel offset brakes the dynamic lights cast by the player character (huge black block around the character).
