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.

Emulation Information

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.

Problems

Frame Rate

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.

Taking Pictures

With D3D, the game freezes for a few seconds after taking a picture. Use OpenGL to avoid this problem.

Enhancements

60Hz PAL

In the PAL-Version the 60Hz mode cannot be activated at startup. Use this Gecko code to force the 60Hz mode.

r7257 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-860 ATI Radeon HD 5770 100-120FPS (or 50-60FPS with XFB enabled), only had the picture taking problem ThatLuciano
r7257 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-930 @ 3.2GHz ATI Radeon HD 5770 Game speed mostly stable but drops to 10-20% of speed at overworld, minor audio desync, graphics glitch
r7334 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-930 @ 3.2GHz ATI Radeon HD 5770 Game speed jumps between 100% and 30%, averages around 60%, audio desyncs, graphics glitch
r7571 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-860 @ 3GHz ATI Radeon HD 5850 x2 Game speed hovers around 100%. Taking pictures causes game to stutter for about 15 seconds. legoman666
3.0 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-3720QM @ 2.6GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M Not playable. OpenGL fix bug dark island but Not work at the Old Mines just after the dark island, cause Jades through the textures. Jonathan66100
3.0 Gentoo Linux Intel Core i7-2820QM @ 2.3GHz AMD Radeon HD 6400M Not payable. Runs around 50% speed until the Abandoned Mineshaft where the hero gets dropped into nothingness when entering the room. pfh.chaos
3.0-235 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9400M Runs around 50% speed until crashing without an error message at the Dark Island (about 30 minutes into the game). r7571 does not crash at this point, but the hero gets dropped into nothingness when entering the next room. Autofresser

4.0-1535 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 4.7GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Works great in OpenGL. The recent changes help a lot. Hologram finally works properly (TFN), frame rate is stable, you can get around the errors, on and on. Some bugs still though, like the ocean reflections. MayImilae
4.0-6209 Windows 7 AMD FX-9370 @ 4GHz AMD Radeon HD 7870 I use OpenGL works great except the pictures are messed up when you take them but not in d3d backend. The Game runs at 100% no drops. likeike12
