Winlogo.png Test configuration on Windows:

PCSX2 version: 0.9.8.r4600
Graphics by GSDX: r4600 0.1.16
Sound by SPU2-X: r4779 2.0.0
Pad plugin is LilyPad: r4510 0.10.0
DVD plugin is cdvdGigaherz: r4510 0.8.0
BIOS version: USA v01.60

Comments: Only just started; configured, played a bit, saved game. Working on sound sync issue now (2012-03-31). The use of dense fog in this game results in an uneven framerate (with frame skip disabled). Running fullscreen with custom window size 1280x894. Dynamic vsync on. D3D10 mode, 3x native scaling. Playing with Dualshock 3. Hack comments: Unknown if any of these make a difference, but they're what I default to.

Pclogo.png PC specs used to test the game:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M 430 (stepping 02) @ 2.27GHz
GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M (8.17.12.9551)

Comments: FMVs are fracked. Weird very fine grid pattern through which the movie can be seen. Audio in cutscenes is so far out of sync, I can't even guess at the delay.
