Ingame at full speed, The flashlight is absolutely broken (screen mostly black; colored stripes where the light is supposed to be; view the attachement) which renders the game pretty much unplayable since it is in use almost all the time.

BIOS: USA v02.30(02/20/2008), Game works at full speed (60 FPS) in both software and hardware modes. Gameplay results were mostly same as previous user with the exception of the graphical glitches related to the flashlight, which only occurs in hardware mode. There is in fact a reasonable fix for this issue to make the game playable in hardware mode. Although the flashlight affect will still not render 100% perfectly (it only displays the top half of the illuminated circle), this does eliminate the graphical glitches. The fix is under the Video(GS) plugin settings, make sure to set the Renderer to either OpenGL or Direct3D11 in Hardware mode. Then check the "Enable HW Hacks" box. In that sub menu, make sure to check the "Fast Texture Invalidation" option. This setting fixes the glitches, so leave this enabled when playing in hardware mode. DeusDisciple

Known Issues

Flashlight graphical glitches

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: As soon as you come to the hospital (the first real dark room), the flashlight, instead of doing its intended job of showing light, instead produces graphical glitches and the game is rendered unplayable. This issue only applies in the two hardware rendering modes, the flashlight affect works as normal in either software rendering mode.
  • Workaround: Enter the Video(GS) Plugin settings and set Renderer to either OpenGL or Direct3D11 Hardware modes. Then Enable HW Hacks and check the "Fast Texture Invalidation" option under that menu. This fixes the problems with the graphical glitches, however the flashlight only renders the top half of the normal illuminated circle. It is however a much better alternative to playing the entire game in software mode.

Audio glitches

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: As soon as you enter the second room in the burning house, audio cuts off after a while and only resumes playing after you re-enter the room. killing the whole atmosphere. (might be existing in the game itself, needs to be tested.)
  • Workaround: There's no known solution. if you know one please edit this.
