Game works fine but requires patch else it will hang right before going in-game. You can also enable automatic gamefixes as the patch has already been added to the database. Hangs at menus without the patch. Some stages may be bit slow.
PAL Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (SP1)
  • Intel Core i5-4670K @ 3.40 GHz
  • AMD Radeon R9 280 @ 3 GB

GSdx 1.1.0 AVX2
  • SPU2-X 2.0.0
  • LilyPad 0.12.1
BIOS: Europe 2.20, Game works fine as long as Automatic Gamefixes are enabled. Lacks a widescreen patch unfortunately, but that's because nobody ever bothered to make one due to the game never working properly before. Therefore it is recommended to play it in 4:3 format until a widescreen patch is made available. In terms of performance, the game runs great. FPS remains stable at 50 even while a lot of stuff is going on in the screen. Ryudo
