GSDX: Hardware mode -  [Bug Report] Ape Escape 2 [NTSC-U]

Did this, enabling fast Invalidation hack did nothing, unticking large framebuffer made the framerate a bit faster underwater for 10s or so, then the drops happened again, and then they're gone, and back in 10s etc etc... Also makes my game crash if i try to pause it during a stutter i think, it can happen or not and sometimers i seem to be able to reproduce this everytime, sometimes it just wont crash, but it only crashed with these options.

I honestly don't know, i've just enabled SW mipmaps and HW hacks and then added UserHacks_mipmap = 1 at the bottom of the GSdx.ini file as a tutorial on how to use HW mipmaps told me to. I guess it's level 1 since the performance didn't change from 1.4.0 with no mipmapping.
EDIT: Was using level 1, tried 2, no change. There are some bugs with mipmaps but it's just HW mode not loading them progressively, resulting in sudden changes in textures when approaching, nothing to do with the problem described in this thread.

Dx might do it on the CPU whereas OpenGL can do it on the GPU. Try to play with the CRC level. Note: the game can also uses some pseudo 8 bits frame buffer on purpose.
Already tried every CRC option, changes nothing.

Here's the dump:

EDIT: Just realized i forgot to rename the .gs file before uploading it, sorry, I would re-upload it but my upload speed is soooooo slow, if requested i'll do it.
