Vertical lines in FMVs/Cutscenes
#1
I tried finding a more recent topic on the manner but have not had luck, most recent topic I've seen was from 2011, PCSX2 has gone through a lot of changes since then, and with the release of 1.2.0, I decided to give it a whirl. Game run fantastic on my computer, however, any game that uses FMVs, there are hideous vertical lines running up and down. Final Fantasy X, Grandia 2, Grandia 3, you name it. In version 1.0.0. however, the problem isn't there, even when doubling the internal resolution. Any suggestions besides using native res? Native res ain't pretty on a 1920 x 1080 monitor Biggrin

Can you post a screen of the problems. Along with your settings, please. Try using a custom set resolution, and see if the problem persists.

Okay, here are the settings for the GSdx plugin and the screenshot

Default window size was set to 1280 x 720, full screen is 1920 x 1080

Tried changing to DX11 (hardware) and customizing internal resolution, still persists. I don't get this since 1.0.0 didn't have this issue.

Try turning off MSAA it can cause issues like this in some games. I do not get that setting on my MSAA so I don't know if its on or not

MSAA is currently set a 0, so no, it's currently not enabled in the plugin....crap. This is really weird that it's happening in 1.2.0 but not 1.0.0 Huh

nVidia drivers are up to date, so that's not the issue, I think.

Completely deactivate Texture Filtering in GSdx, only way to get rid of it so far. I'm using PCSX2 v1.3.1. You can use FX Shader and UHQ FXAA from it, but HW AA or Texture filtering will result in those lines in FMVs.

That's not "technically" A cutscene as it is ingame. Get a newer version of PCSX2 (that one is quite old now looking at the screenshots), then once you do, enable the "align sprite" hw hack and use the native scaling options rather than a custom resolution. Native 2x will be similar to what you are using.

Found out now, that if you use the following widescreen hack for Grandia II (U), the lines vanish, even if you use full Texture filtering. No need for any hw hacks.

Don't forget to activate widescreen hacks and 16:9 in GS window. If you want to play in 4:3 (w/o ws hack), the Align Sprite Hw hack might be a better solution, than deactivating texture filtering. I was using the native scaling option before, mostly x3-x4.

The fix also has a FMV fix, which makes all FMVs 4:3..., but no lines, equal which resolution you set (which is good!).

Especially this code is interesting:

Code:
//FMV fix (by flameofrecca)
patch=1,EE,20401874,word,42a00000 //00000000 fmv x-position
patch=1,EE,2040187c,word,43f00000 //44200000 fmv right side stretch

Now to get 16:9 FMVs, you need to replace "42a00000" and "43f00000" with "00000000" and "44200000". The "default" values I think. Anyway, this not only make the FMVs widescreen, but also brings the vertical lines back. Equal which native multiplier you try, the lines stay. They will vanish as soon as you deactivate "Texture filtering" completely. But who wants that? No one, so I tried some custom resolutions and so far only 1200x1200 works (1300-3000 didn't work). Lines will vanish, but you still can use Texture Filtering! Also FXAA or a combination with the FX shader will work, as long as you don't change 1200x1200. Things that won't work, MSAA, equal which one. Lines will be visible as soon as you activate MSAA (even on 1200x1200).

Normally, I use x3-x4 Native - so 1200x1200 is a bit over x2 Native. It might look "worse" than x3, but FMVs are played in 16:9, Texture filtering is on and FXAA is used. Even without FXAA, I can't really see any jagged lines so far. Everything is sharp and plays at 60 fps. Anyway, wanted to share this information.

BTW, no HW hack (like Align Sprite or Wild Arms Offset) will get rid of the lines, I tried all that.

But still I would like to have more than just 1200x1200! I tried steps of 100 till 3000, no luck. If anybody finds out more about this issue, I would appreciate any shared info. =)
