Comments: The game should be able to be run at full speed without speed hacks. If you cannot, it mean your pc is not fast enough. You may want to try using speed hacks, but all cycle modifying speedhacks (sync hacks) are likely to break the game such as loose music and crash in battles. Also to allow 3 and 4 player support, enable multitap on the emulator for port 2, and port 2 on Lilypad (r4510)0.10.0 plugin. Controls for each player then becomes 1 = Player one, 2A= Player 2, 2B= Player 3, 2C= Player 4.
- If you use a higher resolution than native add
to your GSDX.ini and if the "ghost" problem still exists try different values (works only on/after rev1650 or GSDX 0.1.15). A TotA-specific build of GSDX also fixed this.
Obs: If you are using custom resolution set in 1920x1080, just use TCoffsetX:450/Y:350. You don´t need any other hack if you do this.
As of gsdx2693, just set UserHacks_SkipDraw to '1' to fix this problem. (Can cause slowdown)
UPDATE: As of PCSX 1.0.0 with GSDX 5334 (0.1.16) it seems that ghosting can be fixed by using Native or Native x1-x6 resolution.
