Europe v02.00(14/06/2004), Recommended + MTVU, Automatic Game Fixes, Playable, but requires a powerful GPU (better than mine for sure) or you'll have constant perfomance drops. I had to max out VU Cycle Stealing to get constant 100% speed and that costed me smoothness. Various graphical glitches in Hardware mode. Glitched effects like dust from under tires and glitched lights can be fixed by setting Skipdraw to 5 but this will also remove fog and Depth of Field.

Game still has "Sunray" issue but the translucent textures appeared to be fixed. Game runs at a solid 60FPS, only problem was the audio skipping during the opening cut scene.Bios v 2.0 was used. Zrooney
