Emulation Information

ZCompLoc and Improper Layering

This game uses a niche GCN feature known as ZCompLoc. Without this feature characters sometimes improperly overlay foreground graphics. A hack has existed since 3.0-505, but a proper implementation of ZCompLoc was added to OpenGL in 3.5-1649 and to D3D11 in 3.5-1729. The new implementation requires OpenGL 4.2+ or Direct3D11 compatibility. If a system cannot support the proper implementation, a warning will appear, and Dolphin will fall back to the old ZCompLoc hack. Problems may still occur while using the hack. Refer to issue 2706 and the ZCompLoc forum thread.



Widescreen Gecko Code

The Widescreen hack included with Dolphin causes balancing issues with the background that this Gecko Code will solve. Make sure to leave the Widescreen Hack included with Dolphin disabled.
