Battle City (バトルシティー) is a multi-directional shooter, the a successor to Tank Battalion, and the predecessor to Tank Force. The player, controlling a tank, must destroy enemy tanks in each level, which enter the playfield from the top of the screen. The enemy tanks attempt to destroy the player's base (represented on the map as a bird, eagle, or Phoenix), as well as the human tank itself. A level is completed when the player destroys all 20 enemy Tanks, but the game ends if the player's base is destroyed or the player loses all available lives.
Problems that may occur with any NES title on Dolphin are listed below.
DirectX with NES Games
Most NES games suffer strange graphical issues when using the DirectX backend with some graphics drivers; notably NVIDIA. This is a driver bug.
As of, the D3D driver bugs can be worked around by setting Ubershaders to Exclusive/Synchronous (Ubershaders). It's unknown what exactly is going on with the driver that's causing Exclusive Ubershaders/Synchronous (Ubershaders) to work properly.
This seems to have been rectified at some point, though it's unclear what resolved it.
This title does not have any additional game-specific problems.
This title does not need non-default settings to run properly.
The graph below charts the compatibility with Battle City since Dolphin'srelease, listing revisions only where a compatibility change occurred.
This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8 GHz
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
|Works OK. Requires EFB2RAM.
|Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4 GHz
|NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080
|Playable. Requires Store EFB Copies to Texture Only 'Off' and Texture Cache Accuracy 'Safe' to display sprites correctly. With D3D backend, going to fullscreen causes weird pictures appear in the screen. To fix this, use OpenGL or Vulkan backend.
