Known Issues

Bugged FMVs

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: FMVs don't play correctly when you play in GSdx HW Mode with anything higher than Native Res.
  • Workaround: Apply Manual Gamefix: Switch to GSdx Software rendering when an FMV plays

GSdx Screenshots wrong size

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: When taking screenshots in PCSX2 using the F8 key, the image height is somehow cut in half, resulting in distorted images. This might be related to a very old bug where the NTSC version of the game would only show half the screen.
  • Workaround: No known method for now. Use a different software to take screenshots instead, such as Fraps or Bandicam.
