'''Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem''' is a psychological horror video game released for the Nintendo [[GameCube]], developed by Canadian developer Silicon Knights and originally planned for the Nintendo 64. It was the first video game published directly by Nintendo, rather than a third-party developer, to be rated M for mature by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
+
'''''Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem''''' (aka '''''Eternal Darkness: Manukareta 13-nin''''' in Japan) is a mature, third-person horror adventure from the makers of the original Legacy of Kain. Featuring 12 playable characters throughout history, including a Roman Centurion and a priest during the period of Inquisition, the story follows Alexandra Roivas, a young, beautiful woman whose grandfather's body has just been found in his dark and moody mansion, bloodied and torn apart, his head missing. When she learns that the local police have been unable to uncover any clues regarding the obvious murder, she decides to take matters into her own hands. It's when she arrives at her deceased relative's mansion to investigate that the tale of Eternal Darkness truly begins.

== Problems ==
=== Cutscenes ===
+
{{Problems|{{#vardefineecho:problems|
In cutscenes the audio is either extremely quiet or missing. In the same cutscenes subtitles sometimes will only pop up for a fraction of a second and disappear. Fix by using [[DSP LLE]].
+
=== Green / Purple Transitions ===
 +
Before and after a chapter, the screen momentarily turns green or purple. Prior to Hybrid XFB in {{revision|5.0-5874}} turn on Real XFB or after disable "Store XFB Copies to Texture Only" to avoid this.
  
=== Transparency issues ===
+
=== Aspect Ratio Distortion ===
In Lindsey's section the character can sometimes disappear when underneath hanging vines. Fix by turning on Per-Pixel Lighting for this section.
+
While pausing the game, the aspect ratio can momentarily stretch to each side with default settings, causing a distorted image. Disabling Dual Core corrects this. See {{issue|10801}}.
  
=== Hang Post Initial Quote ===
+
=== <s>Hang Post Initial Quote</s> ===
With {{revision|6495}} and a range of other revisions the game hangs shortly after displaying it's initial Edgar Allen Poe quote. The game is playable with {{revision|5786}} and {{revision|7128}}. (try pressing the A button).
+
Since {{revision|5.0-69}}, Dolphin will hang in Dualcore and SyncGPU modes when the Edgar Allen Poe quote displays. Refer {{issue|9706}}. Use Deterministic GPU or Single Core to avoid the issue. Deterministic GPU is now set by default as of {{revision|5.0-4788}}.
 +
}}}}
  
=== JITIL Error ===
+
== Enhancemetns ==
The error "WriteRest: op out of range (00000000130E4F3F uses 00000000C00000D0)" occurs shortly after start with the JITIL interpreter with {{revision|6495}} and likely other revisions.

=== Invisible Pause Menu Items ===
+
}}}}
Some items in the pause menu are invisible (projected behind the box they should be in). To fix this, disable the custom projection hack in the properties right click menu. The custom projection hack does nothing to the rest of the game so disabling it is only a good thing.

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem (aka Eternal Darkness: Manukareta 13-nin in Japan) is a mature, third-person horror adventure from the makers of the original Legacy of Kain. Featuring 12 playable characters throughout history, including a Roman Centurion and a priest during the period of Inquisition, the story follows Alexandra Roivas, a young, beautiful woman whose grandfather's body has just been found in his dark and moody mansion, bloodied and torn apart, his head missing. When she learns that the local police have been unable to uncover any clues regarding the obvious murder, she decides to take matters into her own hands. It's when she arrives at her deceased relative's mansion to investigate that the tale of Eternal Darkness truly begins.

Emulation Information

16:9

Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Auto". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.

Problems

Green / Purple Transitions

Before and after a chapter, the screen momentarily turns green or purple. Prior to Hybrid XFB in 5.0-5874 turn on Real XFB or after disable "Store XFB Copies to Texture Only" to avoid this.

Aspect Ratio Distortion

While pausing the game, the aspect ratio can momentarily stretch to each side with default settings, causing a distorted image. Disabling Dual Core corrects this. See issue 10801.

Hang Post Initial Quote

Since 5.0-69, Dolphin will hang in Dualcore and SyncGPU modes when the Edgar Allen Poe quote displays. Refer issue 9706. Use Deterministic GPU or Single Core to avoid the issue. Deterministic GPU is now set by default as of 5.0-4788.

Enhancemetns

Blurry Distant Textures

Since 5.0-5745, textures in Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem will appear blurry in the distance at internal resolutions above native, due to false positives in Arbitrary Mipmap Detection. Since 5.0-8296, this setting can be disabled to work around the issue. However, if any "mip trick" effects are used by the game, they will not work correctly.

In prior versions, the only workaround is to enable GPU Texture Decoding.

Configuration

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

General

5.0-6157 Windows 10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Tested on OpenGL. Needs XFB to RAM for transitions. Whenever you pause the game, there's a bug where the aspect ratio shifts slightly causing some distortion to the image with default settings; playing in Single Core solves this, or using Crop in Dolphin makes it less noticeable. I had terrible screen tearing in exclusive fullscreen without V-Sync, and some particularly bad stuttering without Hybrid Ubershaders. With XFB to RAM, Crop, V-Sync, and Hybrid Ubershaders all enabled, the experience was nearly perfect minus the aspect ratio shifts. The issue with Lindsey disappearing when under vines did not occur for me. Able to complete the entire game. Xerxes
