Gamefixes Used:


Amount of testing done (little/medium/much/completed-game): medium


Played through the first level of the campaign without issues (aside from minor graphical glitches, see bugs section).
Multiplayer splitscreen also seems to play fine (with same graphical glitches as campaign).
Performance hovers around 50fps most of the time. Sometimes get drops to ~30fps, might be caused by large explosions.
Performance is about the same in both Direct3D11 (Hardware) and software modes, using 3x Native resolution in hardware mode.
FMVs run quite slowly at ~19fps, but otherwise work fine.

More testing of the campaign is needed for the game to be considered Playable, I think.


Minor graphical glitches - occasional flashing textures and polygons flickering across the screen as you move around. Some parts of the main menu and submenus flash as the camera pans around. Occurs in both software and Direct3D11 (Hardware) modes.


1/2. Main menu in software/hardware.
3/4. The first level 'Hero Training' in software/hardware.
5/6/7/8. Splitscreen gameplay in software/hardware.
Aspect ratio in screenshots looks weird due to native resolution of 512x512.

Comments: Runs fine at an average of 50 FPS, massive frame rate drops experienced during large battles or other intensive game play. Constant graphical glitches were prevalent, this can be fixed by disabling the "mVU Flag Hack" speedhack.
