Full Version: Shadow of the Colossus trasparent lines on the left and top of the screen
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello, i'm new in this forum, I registered because of a problem i have with my pcsx2 emulator.

Small lines appear at the left and top of my screen when playing, and sometimes they vibrate, so it becomes very annoying and I get confused.

They vibrate when I move the camera, but somrtimes they don't and it's just a trasparent line on top.

Here, have a screenshot (I marked the areas because it's trasparent and small and you won't be able to notice it)

PCSX2 version 1.0.0 r5350

I'm using VU (setting 1) and EE cycles (33% improvement), the default hacks for SotC (CRC, half pixel offset, native resolution 2x)

I´m also using Directx11 hardware with no antialiasing. Too shade Boost and HW Hacks.

I play DBZ BT3 perfectly at 60fps wih no graphical problems, it's the only other game I have there.

I play them both on ISO.

Thanks for your reply.

Interesting fix. What causes that?

That's an old version which we don't support anymore. In the future, please update to at least 1.2.1 before asking for support. Also quick question: Does this happen in software mode as well?
It works because it zooms in just a tiny bit enough that those lines are outside the visible portion of the rendering area.
I know why it works, I was just asking what causes that issue in the first place. I guess I should have been a bit more specific, sorry about that.
It's caused(most likely) because GSdx detection of the game resolution is sort of spotty in certain cases. Rama can explain it better, but basically it's really hard to detect it exactly. So my guess is the detection here is a pixel or two off.
