When pausing and half way into stage two 90% of the screen is covered making the game unplayable. This can be resolved by disabling Store EFB to Texture Only.

Use of Force Texture Filtering will cause graphics corruption.

This title has been tested on the environments listed below:
|Windows 8||AMD FX 6300 @ 4.3GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6450||50FPS/50VPS. Perfect emulation.||Faefdsedf|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i7 @ 4.3GHz||AMD R9 270X||Black screen after menu.||Wem|
|Windows 7||Athlon II X4 630 @ 3.2GHz||AMD Radeon HD 6570||Works perfect. Disable Dual Core or it hangs after menu||Golem777|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i7 @ 4.3GHz||AMD R9 270X||Half way into stage two 90% of the screen is cover up in black.||Wem|
|Windows 10||Intel Core i5-3330 @ 3GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760||Works perfect (a few lags here and there, but that might be me and a reinstall scheduled after years). Disable Dual Core support or the game hangs while starting a new game. The game didn't gave me a black square covering 90% of screen until I paused and went to title for a new game. Disabling Store EFB seems to fix that.||Min_Nohara|
|Windows 10||AMD Phenom II x4 965 @ 3.4GHz||NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960||It works perfect whithout flaws (tested it in a full run), to avoid the black screen you need to uncheck the dual core option (With Dual Core option ON it gives insta-blackscreen after the title screen) and to avoid having a black screen between stages you need to uncheck the "Store EFB" the game need to copy EFB to RAM on WIN 10. ALSO do not use "Force Texture Filtering" it will give graphics corruption. THIS IS A MUST ON WIN10 FOR MOST OF THE WII WARE GAMES SUCH AS "CASTLEVANIA REBIRTH", "GRADIUS REBIRTH" etc...||Terry_Sunderland|
