What does Half-pixel Offset fix in God of War II?
#1
I don't see any difference in God of War II when the Half-Pixel Offset is enabled or disabled. But when it's enabled, it causes some glitch in some scenes. What is the benefit of this hack?

According to the PCSX2 Configuration Guide:

Quote:Half-pixel Offset: This hack adds an offset to all surfaces so that some common upscaling issues get reduced. Use this when blur or halo effects seem to appear shifted up-left of where they should be.

So basically it is supposed to help with with upscaling issues, or at least that is what I got from it.

Considering its a hack there is a high probability that it will mess up some games so just turn it off for those games that have issues with the HACK. It is called a hack for a reason

It can, but it doesn't mean it will. I use speedhacks so I can play certain games more smoothly, and normally I don't have problems. Then again I guess it depends on what the hack is and what game you're using it with.

Thanks for the information. But I don't see any difference. I'm playing this game at 3x resolution and I don't feel that the image is any sharper/clearer when this hack is enabled. On the contrary, it causes some glitch so I turned it off. Maybe it's because I'm using a new version of GSdx (5632).

I was just saying that speedhacks are useful despite its problems. I see a lot of people say/type "speedhacks are bad!!!", but from my experience they give me a good speed boost and seldom cause too much trouble.
