Known Issues

Hardware mode

  • Type: Slowdown, GFX glitches
  • Affected Game Versions: All
  • Description: The game is very GPU-intensive in Hardware mode outside of battles. Additionally, enabling Texture Filtering will lead to visible graphical glitches.
  • Solution: Use Software mode.
  • Comment: However, it is safe to switch to Hardware mode during battles. This will avoid slowdowns on weaker CPUs.


Invisible characters

  • Type: GFX glitches
  • Affected Game Versions: All
  • Description:In various environments, characters seem to be invisible.
  • Solution: Set EE/FPU clamping mode to Full.
  • Comment: This change requires a scene change to take effect and will not make already invisible characters visible immediately.
