USA v02.20(10/02/2006), Little(In Comparation of the Entired Game), Obs-The game have know issues in the Ntsc version and probabily in the Pal also,But not atested here,anyway its Fully Playable,No fear.
  • Intel Core i7 920 @ 3.4 Ghz

0.9.8 r4463 GSDX r4459
  • SPU2-X 1.4.0
  • Lilypad 0.10.0
BIOS: USA v2.00, Needs a powerful machine to play right. The cutscenes are the biggest problem.

•Setting the SPU2-X Synchronizing Mode to "Async" may speed up the cutscenes but can cause stutter and out of sync problems in game., •Doesn't respond well to big resolutions.

NTSC-U Windows 7 64-Bit
  • Intel i7 @ 3.4Ghz
  • Sapphire R9 290X 4GB
1.2.1 r5873 GSdx 10 (Software)0.1.16 r5875
  • SPU2-X r5875
  • Lillypad 0.11.0 r5875
The game still has the same glitches that were present in 0.9.8. I would recommend switching to hardware mode for the cut scenes for the up-scaling benefits, but switching to software mode for the game play. Bios v 2.0 was used. Zrooney

Known Issues

No post-processing

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Post-processing is disabled in GSdx by default. Enabling post-processing in this game causes huge slowdowns. Certain places can look overbright.
  • Workaround: Software mode (F9) in GSdx plays the game correctly. However, it runs much slower and looks uglier.
