F-Zero GX is a futuristic racing video game for the Nintendo GameCube console. Developed by Sega's Amusement Vision department and published by Nintendo, it was released in Japan, Europe and North America in 2003. F-Zero AX, the arcade counterpart of GX, uses hardware conceived from a business alliance between Nintendo, Namco and Sega. F-Zero GX runs on an enhanced version of the engine that powered Super Monkey Ball. F-Zero GX/AX was the first video game collaboration between Nintendo and Sega. The game received critical acclaim as one of the best racers of its time and the greatest racer on the GameCube platform.

Problems

Vehicle Shadows

Shadows under vehicles are broken. With EFB to Texture, this is permanent, though occasionally shadows may be displayed correctly. Issue seems fixed with to EFB to RAM. This, however, slows rendering. When the player switches between standard view and cockpit view for a prolonged time, shadows become broken once again.

Rain on Lightning Track

Rain on the Lightning-tracks is broken.

Heat Effect/Blur

Sand Ocean environment cuts speed in half, probably because of the "heat" effect. Said effect is not rendered when "Enable CPU -> EFB access" is not ticked, which makes Sand Ocean run at 100%. When "Enable CPU -> EFB access" is ticked, the game seems to be rendering some parts at a lower resolution, resulting in a blur on certain parts of the screen.

Grand Prix

The game tends to crash at random during Grand Prix races with EFB to RAM, but runs fine with EFB to Texture.

Story Mode

Story mode crashes the emulator, but has been fixed in r5644.

64bit Linux Crash

Game crashes after saving initial profile occur on certain Linux builds, see issue 2433. This was fixed with r6040.

Configuration

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