After shutting everything down and restarting, in the tailor/barbershop the character is huge and unable to see anything above chest-level. Also, when switching weapons the weapon is shown on top of the text with name and ammo. Tried changing settings and restarting but couldn't fix it.

Known Issues

Car lights

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Minor
  • Description: Car lights can be seen through walls.
  • Workaround: There's no known workaround.

Broken fullscreen color filter

  • Status: Active
  • Type: Serious
  • Description: The game utilizes a permenent color filter which, unfortunately, is not being emulated correctly at all in hardware mode, resulting a solid, partially see-through block of color on the bottom half and the top is covered in colored alternating vertical bands.
  • Workaround: Aside from software mode, the only available solution currently is to set Skipdraw to 1,1 in order to remove the effect entirely.
