r4708 Windows Intel Core i5-750 @ 2.66 GHz ATI Radeon HD 4850 Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles ~ The Crystal Bearers (Dolphin R4708) iXOmega
2.0 Windows XP AMD Athlon II x2 215 @ 3.45 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 7025 658MHz Disable Panic Handlers! In game runs at 11-24FPS (35-80% of speed) - seems playable. Sound's in cutscenes is often missing and if not - it's desynced, in game music often freeze. It's first game what I see on GameCube/Wii - which uses shaders. But sad - this is another game about blonde blue eyed freak. ): †.fl.l).
3.0-235 Windows 7 Intel Core i5 @ 2.53 GHz ATI Radeon HD 5650 Disable DSP DTK - disable DSP LLE on thread music - Direct3D9 1366x768 internal resolution 1,5 960x729, AA=0 AF 1x scaled EFB copy, playable 20FPS 60 vps 100% sometimes slow down 10FPS 30VPS 40% , game music always freeze David
4.0-3638 Windows 8.1 AMD Athlon II x3 435 @ 2.9 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 440 It take about 16 hours to complete this game. Get about 70%-100% of speed mostly. Nasty slowdowns to 1FPS at some places (if rotate camera, moving), sometimes can be avoided if stand for a minute with max speed (seems what most of the code for this problematic area would be cached/recompiled?). If that was not helping - I used version 3.5-1124 LLE to walk this area and make ingame save, also savestate/saveload (shift+F1;F1) give some speed but for half a second (maybe it will help, if saving/loading savestate to ramdrive every second). Water and cave walls are still flick (shader bug, mirroring of world misplaced). Small bug with audio at cut scene's - sometimes character (Jigran mostly) only open mouth and don't say anything, subtitles also doesn't shown at that moment (HLE). Need to use EFB copies to RAM - to fight some bosses, and see some cutscenes. †.fl.l).
