Winlogo.png Test configuration on Windows:

PCSX2 version: 0.9.8
Graphics by GSdx: r4600
Sound by SPU2-X: r4600
Pad plugin is LilyPad: r4510

  • Needs a powerful machine to play at good speeds. 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.

Hack comments: Speed hack enable

Pclogo.png PC specs used to test the game:

CPU: Core2Duo E8400 3.0GHz


  • Can't use high resolutions unless you have a very powerful graphics card.

Known Issues:

Post-processing missing

Post-processing is disabled in GSdx by default for this game due to huge slowdowns and bad glitches on screen.

  • Solution: Only software mode (F9) in GSdx plays the game correctly but it's much slower and uglier.

Black Spots

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.

  • Solution: Only software mode (F9) in GSdx plays the game correctly but it's much slower and uglier.

Metal Gear Saga Vol. 1 not working

This disc is a Video-DVD and it won't play in PCSX2 but it works in regular DVD-players.
