Ingame Lighting Issue
Hi, I apologize if this thread was posted in the wrong thread.

I downloaded PCSX2 a few days ago because I wanted to play my childhood game again but after I boot and start the game, the lightings in the game seemed weird and flickered a lot. I first booted up the game with some changes on the GSdx settings, namely Internal Resolution (3x), Anisotropic Filtering (4x), and enabling FXAA. The game didn't seem right so I closed it and tried to revert back to default by setting Internal Res back to Native, turning off Anisotropic Filtering and disabling FXAA, then booted it again but the game still flickers. Below I've attached some screenshots for example.

I've tried searching on google for related lighting issues, but most of them are gamebreaking or heavily lagging when there's lightings involved, which are not really related to my case. Mine isn't that big of an issue to that I can't play it, but its really annoying to have those lights spazzing out all the time.

I hope this issue can be fixed soon ><

P.S I uses GSdx9 as it is the default for me.

Via PCSX2 wiki:

Quote:1.5.0 (dev-2011-g16904d5)

The game is "Playable" only in status. There are major visual issues that cause the 
screen to flash rapidly and could induce seizures. Changing the Renderer or any GSdx settings help. This has been an issue since at least 2012. 30FPS at all times.

Btw. @hamooda3000 you don't even mention game name..

@kozarovv I've just finished trying each renderer like what the quote suggested, with no settings changed. Below are the results,

OpenGL (Hardware) - Better lighting but still has some flickers
Direct3D11 (Hardware) - Worst lighting, half the screen is pure white at certain scenes
Direct3D9 (Hardware) - Not any much better than Direct3D11
All the software ones only makes the screen freeze, although I can still hear the audio going.
@CK1 I downloaded v1.5.0-dev-2418-gba1689f6d by refractionpcx2 and booted the game with OpenGL, but the issue with the lights flickering is still there
