VP6 Videos

Boogie uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on many graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling. See issue 7193. In 5.0-15515 or newer, this can be fixed with "Manual Texture Sampling" in the Graphics Settings -> Advanced menu.

Menu Issues

Glitches occur with menus unless External Frame Buffer is enabled. XFB=Virtual will work. Fixed with Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874.


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