Game stopping bug / issue with Red Faction 2 on PCSX2.
#1
Hi,

I am stuck in Red Faction 2 in the Propaganda Center level. I can't progress any further because of an PCSX2 issue. A catwalk is supposed to drop down from the ceiling to the ground so that I can walk up to the 2nd floor and through a door to continue through the level. However, when I reach this catwalk that's supposed to drop down in a slope, using PCSX2, the catwalk just flips vertically at a 90 degree angle to the ground, making it impossible to proceed further.

I am using PCSX2 0.9.8, and Super VU recomplier enabled. That's the only VU option that Red Faction 2 will run on. Interpreter and normal recompiler mode causes the game to lock up. The "game fixes" is un-enabled, meaning automatic fixes. All other PCSX2 settings are default as far as I know, except controller configuration. I simply switched around which keys are mapped to which PS2 buttons.

The game runs fine when set up with Super VU. The FPS and graphics are fine, except for 3-D objects like enemy soldier heads jerking around when I kill them and cutscenes not showing properly. Other games like Red Faction 1, Maximo, Drakan, etc. work just fine so I don't think it's a computer or graphics card issue.

The bugged catwalk that prevents me from progressing further.

This is what the catwalk is supposed to be doing / located, sloping down like this.

Direct3D software option in the setting menu? I'm using the GSdx9 plugin.

EDIT: I just tried, and the same problem exists on both hardware and software versions. By the way, the regular recompiler is "MicroVU".

I finished playing Timesplitters 2, which ran beautifully on PCSX2. Having beat the game and 100% completion with everything unlocked, I decided to go back to Red Faction 2. I tried the SVN software option in the GSdx9 plugin options, and I still have the same problem. Jerky 3-D graphics and the catwalk standing up as in the picture I posted above.

Are there any other good plugins besides GSdx9? I'm starting to suspect that the only VU that Red Faction 2 works on is the Super VU one, and that one might be causing the jerky 3-D stuff to happen.
