Test configuration on Windows:

PCSX2 version: PCSX2 1.2.1 r5875

Pad plugin is LilyPad: r5822
DVD plugin is Linuz Iso CDVD: 0.9.0
BIOS version: SCPH39001

Comments: Although, the game runs fine, this game does contain various graphical issues (most are only present in Hardware Rendering):

  • When starting the game, it shakes. In order to fix this, you must go to GSdx's settings and set Interlacing to Bob bff.
  • Cutscenes have a black overlay covering half of the video (Present in Hardware and Software rendering). There are no fixes for this yet.
  • When using a custom resolution, flickering occurs to cutscenes (and sometimes outside cutscenes). It is recommended to use either Native resolution or Scaled resolution.
  • When upscaling the game, the bloom is misaligned. To fix this enable HW Hacks on the GSdx plugin and check Half-pixel offset.
  • There is a moderate slow down when opening in-game menus.
  • Various effects, such as smoke and the sun, have texture issues. This is not present in Software rendering.

Other info:

  • The MTVU hack and setting EE Cyclerate to 3, breaks the game.
  • Keep note: Performance may vary in mini-games.
