To the fighters in Black & Bruised, boxing is no game; it's a matter of survival. Nineteen outrageous characters fight their way through grueling slugfests to win the pot or settle a score. You'll play through their intertwining stories as they battle each other in 21 different arenas. During each match, you can earn power-ups such as Armor, AutoSlip, Vamp, or Fire Damage to give your fighter a competitive advantage over your opponent.


Interlaced Output

Black & Bruised forces interlaced rendering causing its output to jitter vertically. Dolphin doesn't currently support interlaced output and attempts to convert all output to be rendered progressively. When progressive rendering can't be forced, delinterlacing doesn't occur appropriately, causing output to shift up a row for one frame and back down on the next. Refer to issue 10473.

As of 5.0-20499 a patch is available to work around this issue, but must be manually enabled.


Only configuration options for the best compatibility where they deviate from defaults are listed.
