Known Issues

Post-processing missing

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Post-processing is disabled in GSdx by default for this game due to huge slowdowns and bad glitches on screen.
  • Workaround: Only software mode (F9) in GSdx plays the game correctly but it's much slower and uglier.

Black Spots

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Actually the problem is not the black spots in the jungle parts but the ambient/postprogress is not blending well so it appears overbright leaving the spots where it wouldn't blend as dark visible spots.
  • Workaround: Only software mode (F9) in GSdx plays the game correctly but it's much slower and uglier.
