Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0 Mac OS X 10.6 Intel Core i7 @ 2.2 GHz AMD Radeon HD 6750M & Intel HD3000 Runs well. Black screen for a bit during intro vid, just skip with the start button once you hear sound. It will go to the menu eventually. Anon
3.0 openSUSE 11.4 AMD Phenom II X4 970 @ 3.5 GHz ATI Radeon HD 5850 Perfect in game with default setting but if you want to see intro movie and animations set the External Frame Buffer to Real Delayline
3.0-801 Windows XP Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 @ 3.16 GHz ATI Radeon HD 4850 Runs with the recommended settings, but with severe slowdowns; FPS in menu is at a stable 60, but in-game it drops to around 30-40 and stays there. No changes in the settings manage to get it above 40-43FPS in-game. incassum
4.0.2 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II X4 975 @ 4.12 GHz AMD R9 290 Runs well with the recommended settings (as noted above, it no longer needs XFB for videos to work), but with severe slowdowns; FPS in menu is at a stable 60FPS, but in-game it drops to between 40 and 50FPS depending on how much is going on on-screen, and stays there. The VBeam speed hack alleviates this somewhat, but instead makes the speed of the game change frantically, making it in practice unplayable. No other changes in the settings manage to get it stable above ~48FPS in-game. incassum
4.0-6204 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q8300 @ 2.5 GHz AMD Radeon HD 7870 Runs well, drops to 55FPS during battles but enabling and lowering CPU Clock Override a bit makes it run at a stable 60. Missing Activision and Hudson logo videos and the intro video when XFB is not set to Real on both backends but it can safely be disabled after that for more speed, since the other videos work without it. (The game is forced to start with XFB set to Real, just open the Graphic option to let it use your settings) Pit-O-Matic
5.0-8474 Windows 10 Intel Core i7-6700K @ 4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 PAL Version GBLP52 runs very well on default settings with Vulkan backend at stable 50FPS with only slight audio crackling when loading. Performance stable for up to 3x native resolution scaling with 4x MSAA and 16x AF, FPS dips and input delay starts to happen when going over 4x scaling.) H4ndy
