[Bug Report] Dragon Quest VIII [NTSC]
This is my first attempt at giving information/bug reporting, so hopefully I do this right; please forgive me if I forget a crucial piece of information or word/format things awkwardly.

Beta build: PCSX2 playground (both svn 681 and svn708)
Game: Dragon Quest VIII (NTSC)

Bug1: Crashes (generic Windows program fault) just inside Swordsman's Labyrinth (happens a few seconds after entering independent of any action) using GSdx9-v1.14 (SSE41) Direct3D9 (Hardware) but not with Direct3D9 (Software). Turning Speed Hacks on/off has no effect on crash behavior. ZeroGS Playground plugin doesn't crash either, but artifacting/etc is distracting (e.g. torches and other lighting objects throughout the level are visible through walls/floors). Using a save state to try to bypass the crashing does not work.

Bug2: Certain monsters in the game cause significant framerate decreases (GSDx1.14 - Hardware) in combat for some unknown reason (e.g. ~30% reduction in FPS per Paprikan in Pickham region; decrease in FPS is cumulative). Have not verified/compared with Software mode or ZeroGS PG.
