Sound by SPU2-X: r4600
Pad plugin is LilyPad: r4510
BIOS version: USA v2.00

Comments:

  • Using Progressive Mode in the game makes it play half as slow but with music playing at normal rate.
  • After GSdx r4600 the game is much slower, recommended to use GSdx r4600 max.

Hack comments: Hacks: INTC, Wait Idle Loop, mVU Flag Hack, Allow 8-bit textures (GSdx).

  • Using EE/VU cycle speedhacks increase the speed but reduce the smoothness, not recommended.
  • Reducing clamps cause more issues, not recommended.

Linlogo.png Test configuration on Linux:

PCSX2 version: untested
Graphics by ZZogl: untested
Sound by SPU2-X: untested


Pclogo.png PC specs used to test the game:

CPU: Intel Pentium Dual-Core (3.6GHz)
GPU: Nvidia 9600GT 512MB

Comments:

  • 40-60/60 with only recommended hacks and Allow 8-bit Textures. Can get 60/60FPS using the cycle rate speedhacks.


Known Issues:

SPS (Spikey Polygon Syndrome)

Sometimes while playingm parts of the characters's body look like falling off or going across the screen.

  • Solution: Set the VU clamping mode to "Extra".


Respawn Issues

Sometimes after a character falls from the arena and respawns it's facing the wrong way or the camera is stuck someplace else.

  • Solution: Set the VU clamping mode to "Extra".


Thin vertical lines

Using high resolution in GSdx brings some thin lines over the screen.

  • Solution: Needs specific custom resolutions like 1260x1260, 1200x1200, 1020x1020 or "Native" res. In older GSdx versions it was 1270x1270 and others
  • Don't use HW AA, it will cause the problem even in "Native" resolution.


Darkness in some stages

Some stages are darker than normal in GSdx hardware mode.

  • Solution: skipdraw=2 in hardware mode or software mode (F9) in GSdx helps with this.
