BIOS: USA 2.30, This is a game that consists of almost entirely nothing but 2D sprites/renders, therefore you don't benefit much from upscaling, but if you do want to upscale the internal resolution, you will have to use the Round Sprite hack to deal with the lines that show up. Texture Filtering should be set to 'Forced' if you're upscaling. Have yet to run into any major issues with this game. Ryudo
