007: NightFire is a first-person shooter video game featuring the British secret agent James Bond. It's a sequel to Agent Under Fire.

Problems

Movies

Movies from missions "Paris Prelude", "Alpine Escape", "Enemies Vanquished", "Deep Descent" and "Island Infiltration" play as long as Force Texture Filtering is disabled. Dolphin incorrectly decodes the video format, so scenes with a lot of static content appear jittery, while others with more motion play correctly (because they have no compression).

Other movies play correctly, including the game's title video. This issue has been partially fixed as of 4.0-593, videos play correctly besides some minor vertical line artifacts. See issue 5755 & issue 5046.

Lag

Single Player lags when looking at characters / when characters are in view. When the code cache clears it fixes itself, just not for long. Fixed by an unknown revision prior to 4.0-706.

  • For versions prior to the fix, the lag can be fixed by enabling "MMU Speed Hack" and "Enable MMU" the game properties. Fixes the lag on walking missions but seems to worsen the problem on vehicle missions.

3.0-418 Windows 7 x86 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 3GHz ATI Radeon HD 5750 Game playable ~55 FPS RootKernel
3.0-772 Windows 8 x64 Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.2GHz nVidia GeForce 9800 GTX+ MP playable at ~60 FPS, 100% speed. SP lagging when characters are in view. When the code cache clears it seems to fix itself and you get back at 60 FPS, 100% speed. Omar007
3.0-840 Windows 7 x64 Intel i5 2500K @ 3.7GHz nVidia GeForce GTX 580 Game playable at full speed both with HLE and LLE Sound Emulation in Single Player and Multiplayer modes. Few slowdowns are not noticeable if not monitoring speed % in OSD. Black and white garbage is shown instead of the correct videos in several missions. Only noticeable slowdowns I've experienced took place in missions involving vehicles (such as "Paris Prelude" while sniping in the helicopter). These slowdowns become considerably worse in LLE Sound Emu. FrankJaeger
4.0-1364 Windows 8 x64 Intel Core i7-4770K @ 4.5GHz nVidia GeForce GTX 770 SLI Game fully playable with HLE and LLE Sound Emulation in Single Player and Multiplayer modes. Playable with 60 FPS and 100% rendered. BUT ALL MOVIES ARE NOT VIEWABLE (BUG). No other bug or crash found. Xelion
