FFX issue

The issue NickSP44 is talking about is real, it's just not limited to Final Fantasy X. If you pause basically any Square Enix game (and maybe others), you will notice that the game becomes super pixelated, almost like the downsampling filter was turned off and you're running a really shitty-looking version of native resolution.

Here's some screenshots:

NickSP44 mentioned visual garbage on the pause screen, which definintely isn't there. What actually happens isn't a real issue or bug, the game just takes a snapshot of the current (3D) scene and displays that on the pause screen. Now obviously this snapshot is taken at the original PS2 resolution, as it was never meant to be upscaled to HD. And as PS2 level texture filtering "Bilinear (PS2)" doesn't filter it, it looks more pixelated than normal on higher than native resolutions. Enabling "Bilinear (Forced)" improves it. - FlatOut

Interesting. I wonder why that happens. Bilinear (PS2) seems to be filtering the pause screen when you're playing at native resolution so I wonder why it doesn't do it when you're downsampling from higher resolutions. Karasuhebi (talk) 03:58, 22 August 2016 (BST)

ICO change

Thanks for contributing worthwhile things to the wiki, it's much appreciated. :) -Karasuhebi (talk) 13:49, 26 September 2016 (BST)

You're welcome. :) It is much needed work, with a lot of information here missing or being several years out of date.--FlatOut (talk) 16:31, 26 September 2016 (BST)

Gantz change

Hello, i have a bad english so thanks for the change of my issues. The textureless levels and invisble platform are the same bug. I have write the two issue but in the past(when i have write "invisible" issue) only the first level of chibi was suffer for this(i admit i don't have explain the fully issue in the past because textureless was only chocking for me when i have see the platform invisible). Now(whit the pcsx2 1.5.0-1520 download this morning and older 1.5.0) all level ootdoors can suffer for this issue.

For the "armory gantz", i don't complain about the remove of this issue bad writed by me, but i thinks this is really a issue since i can play in native or x2 and the FPS are the same when i have this menu of "gantz".

Monster Trux Extreme: Offroad Edition

Oh, hi! The wrong publisher is GameFAQs' fault (they have very sketchy info on the regions other than US or JP), I could probably update all publishers/developers from IGN but it's not high on my list. What I wanted to address though is that SLES-53006 is already present on the wiki (for Hamster Heroes). If you own physical discs for the game I'll check Hamster Heroes then but that'd be a wonder for a budget title to be issued on two discs. --Ngng (talk) 14:57, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

Thankfully, I own neither game. But I checked the sides of the box and it looks like it says SLES-53006 on both. I couldn't find a print of the MTE:OE cover elsewhere with this code though. http://img.gamefaqs.net/box/4/7/0/75470_side.jpg http://img.gamefaqs.net/box/1/5/0/77150_side.jpg --FlatOut (talk) 15:47, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

It's probably a photoshoped cover then. I've seen many photoshoped covers, -- it's easier to create a cover from the images available on the internet (in this case from the text fragments) than to find the physical copy and feed it to a scanner. --Ngng (talk) 16:02, 5 November 2016 (UTC)

CAPTCHA issue

Hey FlatOut, maybe you can help me. I'm trying to edit the page for NCAA Football 2002 and 2003, but when I try to publish my edits I get a message about a CAPTCHA that I'm supposed to do. I tried refreshing the page and the CAPTCHA still doesn't show up. After about a dozen tries I finally got my edit to stick on the NCAA Football 2002 page. Am I doing something wrong? Gamemassa (talk) 9:48, 13 November 2016 (BST)

I believe there are some internet browsers that can have issues with the CAPTCHA, possibly depending on the browser settings. But your user rights have been updated, so you wont get bothered by the CAPTCHA again. ;)--FlatOut (talk) 14:51, 13 November 2016 (UTC)

Oh wow. Thanks so much, FlatOut. Gamemassa (talk) 9:54, 13 November 2016 (BST)

Game titles

Uh, hello again!
"I prefer the correct titles, regardless of what other websites say.". It's not a matter of principle for me but I still want to avoid undesirable arguments in future. I believe there is no such thing as a correct title. The closest you can get is the most widely used one. You can also assert that the title is defined by the publisher (Amazon, Sony (the game can no longer be found on EA sites, what a surprise)) or by the boxart title (which may not always correspond with the SKU shipping name and may be changed on reissues). But if you still believe it should be a boxart you mustn't deny that the boxart for this game also has "LEGO" on it. As I said before, in no way it is a matter of principle for me I just like to reduce the risk of idle arguments (in case you'd be determined to rename everything and anything, I hope not).
On the side note, I'll be away for two days, so start renaming as fast as you can in a few hours (an attempt at humor). --Ngng (talk) 21:31, 29 November 2016 (UTC)
What the boxart says won't make me change a title, boxart titles are often up to interpretation(though LEGO is only a small logo on the bottom left, exactly how and where (co-)publishers usually print their logo). I started looking into it because the title on the side of the box (where the full title is usually written) and the information on the back cover/disc do not mention LEGO as part of the title either. I then found that both the developer and LEGO itself also mention the game without LEGO in the title(unlike some other games), which prompted me to change it.

The only title(s) that should matter is the one that shows up in the game itself. Everything else is irrelevant bullshit. The only title(s) I can guarantee you the developers wrote themselves (and therefore is what the developers intended and not some mistake from a retarded part-timer at the publisher) is the title on the main screen of the game. For example, some people think Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix is called Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ because that's the name on the box art, but that's incorrect. Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix+ is not the name of any game, it's the name of a product, that product being a 2-for-1 package of Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.
As far as Soccer Mania is concerned, LEGO is definitely not part of the game's title. That's a logo in the box art. Here's actual in-game footage of the intro of the game, where you can clearly see the word LEGO and the words "Football Mania" as far away as humanly possible from each other: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5CJumdKhVNw
"I believe there is no such thing as a correct title. The closest you can get is the most widely used one" There is such a thing as a correct title, and it's not necessarily the one that's most widely used. In the case of the official title, it's not about what you believe, it's about what is. Karasuhebi (talk) 16:20, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
