[Bug Report] Elvandia Story [NTSC-J]

# PCSX2 version: Tested on 1888, 2256 and 2410
# CPU options: EErec on,mVU and legacy VU tested, MTGS on
# Plugins used: GSdx 0.1.15 2190 and 2406 (hardware and software, dx9), SPU2-X and spu2ghz
# Description: Game will boot to black screen and not load. In 0.9.4 would actually boot and play audio, but not output graphics in hardware or software of GSdx.

A broader search of this bug led me to a post by a former mod of the PCSX2 section on ngemu:

Godwin {March 2008} Wrote:Audio but no video output.

SYMPTOMS
The game plays audio and can press start and O (to skip text) to the point where you have control, but the screen is black.

CAUSE
IPU1 TIE isn't properly emulated and is rarely used by games.

APPLIES TO
Elvandia Story and any other game that uses IPU1 TIE to do video.

So the game needs IPU1 TIE implemented or some sort of hack to output video to the GS.

There is a workaround on the wiki, but it is very unclear. It lists all required changes for both EE and VU, while likely only requiring on of each(this user often mixed up both in his test reports).

A fix seems to be in a current PR, but as that has not been merged and the fix is likely wrong, this is not ready to be marked resolved.

Can you try the following hacks?

EE/IOP round mode nearest
EE/IOP Clamp mode to full
VUs Round mode nearest
VUs Clamp mode to extra+preserv sign

They should fix the missing screen.
Waiting from feedbacks Smile.

No. It's very likely you only need one(maybe 2) of these fixes. If someone tries this, it should be one by one, not all of them together.
