Dragon Quest 8 texture problem after recent update
#1
Hello,

This is my first time posting on this site, so forgive me if I make a mistake.

After updating pcsx2 last night I noticed this strange texture problem on Jessica when wearing her default outfit. The problem only arises in some areas such as the shack above the waterfall cave and the Ascantha region.

   

I think I have all the settings set how pcsx2 wants them to be for this game because I don't get any errors in the top left when opening the game.

I can provide information on my pc and pcsx2 settings if they are needed.

Thanks

Yeah. I disabled them and restarted but no luck.

Can you track down which build broke the game?

That's your problem.

I don't know what build caused the issue, but I know that the last time I played the game without this problem occurring was on 04/08/23.

I unchecked the Manual Hardware Renderer Fixes option and restarted pcsx2 and the problem still occurred.

can you provide a GS Dump of the problem? You can make one under Tools->Save Single Frame GS Dump, then you will find the file under the snaps folder. Please compress it and upload it here (or somewhere else if it's too big)
