Comments: Only just started; configured, played a bit, saved game. The use of dense fog in this game results in an uneven framerate (with frame skip disabled); still, ~50-60, so not bad. Running fullscreen D3D10 mode, 2x native scaling with custom window size 1168x1022 on a 1080p TV. Dynamic vsync off. Interpolation #4, de-alias filter, Xaudio 2, latency 90ms, Timestretch w/ default settings. Disc is an ISO on HDD. Playing with Dualshock 3 using libUSB/sixaxis64. Automatic Gamefixes is on. Hack comments: Unknown if any of these make a difference, but they're what I default to:
- VU Cycle Stealing 3rd "notch"
- INTC Sync Hack
- Idle Loop Fast Forward
- mVU Flag Hack
- mVU Block Hack

Comments: FMVs won't play normally with scaled resolution and HW rendering. In other words, hit F9 when movies start :). Sound is a little wobbly in FMVs in software mode, but not unlistenable.
