Minor Bugs:

*Experienced Texture corruption when changing scenes, but solved it by changing the "D3D Internal Resolution" to "Custom" and forcing "Custom resolution" to "1920x1080"
 +
*Some 2D elements are a bit streched, but 3D elements are perfect and with the correct aspect ratio. (Related to the 16:9 ratio I'm using)
 +
*Minor Transparency related issue: In battle, character shadows are a bit glitched (Related to the HD Resolution I'm using). Can be solved by switching to Software mode (But I prefer to live with it and play in HD)
