0.9.6 ? ? BIOS: US 01.70(25/03/2003), HACKS: INTC Spin Detection, Wait Loop Detection, Fast CDVD, mVU Flag Hack, MTVU, Suffers from some bad graphical glitches and huge VRAM usage on a HW renderer. The game turns into monochrome on a software renderer. For more detail, please see Raw Danger!, which uses a slightly-tweaked version of the same graphics engine. MyDreamName

• Unplayable Using any hacks or tweaks is ultimately futile. The game is largely unplayable and requires software mode to fix some of the major glitches. However you'll need a really powerful computer to get this game to run smoothly. Waiting for actualization...soon.

USA v02.20(10/02/2006), EE/VU Rounding: Chop/Zero, Enabled these, Playable, sit about 30 or higher (on GTX 260) fps if on native or 2x. Also for me you can use Hardware and it wont have graphic issue like the line over the screen it will be normal. Sometime when in where you are changing frames or buying a piece of frame on "Hardware" it will black screen until u switch it to "software". there also a little graphic bug with the top left corner of the screen as well map icon but it not game breaking. Lastly little graphic bug when trying to save.
