Game CRC: 21278F5B
Compatibility report:

PC Specs:

CPU: Intel Core i7 3770K @ 3.50Ghz
GPU: Nvidia Geforce GTX 670 (2GB)

Build Description: PCSX2 1.0.0 Release Pack - Windows
If other please specify: N/A

Amount of testing done (little/medium/much/completed-game): Little

Comments:
The only problems I encountered were graphical, but they were such major graphical problems that the game is hardly playable at all

Bugs:
  • Many large sections of the world's textures will be transparent at any given time
  • Vertical semi-transparent bars appear on the screen. Sometimes they cover the entire screen and sometimes they only cover sections (from what I saw, the most likely cause is that the bars are visible only in sections of the screen that are not covered by shadows)
  • Various weird bugs with the lighting

Status:
Ingame

Comments:
Tested with the various settings of emulation first, could find no resolution for the infamous "vertical bars". Then, under third-party recommendation, forced a hardware rendering on the video plugin and set the skipdraw to 8. Lines were removed, but the emulation was savagely bogged down. So after tweaking with emulation settings posted before, discovered that the round mode MUST be set to nearest, otherwise the game will crash at a massive null operation when it looks for textures and can't find any in-game. As well, the clamping mode is especially important because without it set to Extra + Preserve Sign the first load screen with the two faces will not load and will hang with another severe crash. After much frustration, and many force-quits of PCSX2, the only thing left to do was to go with speedhacks to make the game physically faster. After playing with the cycle settings, I found leaving the cyclerate at 0 and playing with the VU Cycle Stealing actually brought up the game's performance drastically, only sacrificing the sound quality on a margin.

Bugs:
Game looks and plays fairly smoothly, with the occasional hiccup every few minutes. When in pause menu or naming sequences, lighting occasionally flickers in background. Also, when exiting story mode, game hangs on a crash. However, game window itself is still able to close. Save states HIGHLY recommended. Otherwise playable, decent framerate, no huge graphical anomalies.

Status:
Playable, minimum performance hangups.

Did you try the "Align Sprite" HW Hack to fix the vertical lines?

the vertical lines are a depth thing, it will be fine in the OpenGL setting.
