Dolphin Forum thread
Beyond Good & Evil is an action-adventure game with elements of puzzle-solving and stealth-based games. Players control the protagonist, Jade, from a third-person perspective. Jade can run, move stealthily, jump over obstacles and pits, climb ladders, push or bash in doors and objects, and flatten herself against walls. As Jade, players investigate installations in search of the truth about a war with an alien threat.
16:9 Black Borders
Beyond Good & Evil uses a 4:3 image ratio, but displays in 16:9 letterboxed format. On a native 16:9 screen this results in black bars around the entire screen, needlessly constraining the image. This is not a problem - just the way the game renders - so no solution is expected.
Pink Loading Screens
Loading screen render pink unless Store XFB Copies to Texture Only is disabled.
The game's framerate will not be a steady 60FPS 60VPS, fluctuating throughout the game, usually sticking to 120FPS 60vps. However it does not interfere with gameplay most of the time. Virtual XFB fixes this problem, and it is set by default in the GameINI. The opening menu still has some issues, however. Fixed by 5.0-5874.
With D3D, the game freezes for a few seconds after taking a picture. Use OpenGL to avoid this problem. This was fixed in 5.0-9741 and 5.0-9735.
In the PAL-Version the 60Hz mode cannot be activated at startup. Use this Gecko code to force the 60Hz mode.
