FPS: 30-60, Runs well, looking at the level halves the framerate. seems like all geometry is being drawn even if not visible. Seems to max out the GPU, not CPU. DelusionalLogic

Game works great at 60 FPS and 5X native resolution with no glitches. Direct3D9 renderer creates some micro stuttering, but Direct3D10 works well. BIOS v2.0 was used. Zrooney

Known Issues

Right side of the screen cut off in PAL release

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Workaround: Enable the "Show Overscan" option (ideally in the game's properties) in the 1.7+ builds.

Upscaling causes offset chroma layers

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: When upscaling, different chroma layers of the image seem to be offset from each other, resulting in a rather nauseating image.
  • Workaround: Fixed some time ago in 1.7 builds through automatic game fixes. For older versions, enable the "Round Sprite: Full" hack.

Can't blow up pillar in Episode 5, "Dynamic Duo"

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: During the mission "Dynamic Duo" in episode 5, you need to blow up a pillar with Bentley's bombs. The bombs do nothing, and it's impossible to progress.
  • Workaround: Fixed some time ago in 1.7 builds. For older versions, go to Config > Emulation Settings > VUs tab, and set Round Mode to "Nearest" and Clamping Mode to "Extra".

Incorrect Line Upscaling

  • Status: Fixed
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: When upscaling the game to higher resolutions, the cel shader black lines become too big and aren't In their right place.
  • Workaround: Fixed some time ago in 1.7 builds. For older versions, go to Config > Video (GS) > Plugin Settings, turn on "Enable HW Hacks", Choose "Disable safe feature". The black lines become small but they are still there.
