In F1 2002, kick off a brand-new season of racing with all the speed, glamor, and rivalry of Formula One. Officially licensed from the Formula One Administration Limited, F1 2002 features real drivers, teams, cars, and tracks from the 2002 FIA Formula One World Championship. Join new teams--Toyota and Renault--and complete all-new challenges that test your driving skills. The higher you place in each race, the more points you receive, and the closer you are to the Constructor's Cup.


Stuttering Cutscenes

As of 4.0-5394, the EA Sports logo during the intro can stutter/freeze using default settings. Setting Texture Cache Accuracy to Medium (middle position) or Safe (left position) solves the issue.

Extremely Long Loads

This game takes a very long time to load (90+ seconds) and has no feedback during the initial chunk. The load times on console are only about 15 seconds, so this is a defect in Dolphin. Fixed by 5.0-2431.


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

4.0-5394 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Almost perfect with default settings. The intro cutscene fails to update properly without texture cache accuracy medium, and occasionally microstuttering occurs at the beginning of a race, but during gameplay there's zero problems. Constant 100% speed even at 3x IR. Xerxes
4.0-9154 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-660 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670 Game takes very much to load (loading screen). playable though Steven
4.0-9154 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Game takes forever to load, seemingly hanging, but watching the file monitor reveals it's not stuck. It eventually does load after quite a long wait. On console this wait is extremely long as well, but, I'm not sure if it is this long. Speedup disc transfer rate removes this long wait. JMC4789
