Go to the next level in the Dragon Ball Z saga. Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 improves upon the first installment by adding an all-new single player mode, new characters and explosive attacks. Experience the new match-ups, character cameos and challenging missions in "Dragon World." Pick your favorite DBZ hero or enemy and take on a friend in "Vs." and "Tournament" modes. If you're really good, you will soon come face-to-face with Buu, the most lethal DBZ villain.


Interlaced Output

Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 2 forces interlaced rendering causing its output to jitter vertically. Dolphin doesn't currently support interlaced output and attempts to convert all output to be rendered progressively. When progressive rendering can't be forced, delinterlacing doesn't occur appropriately, causing output to shift up a row for one frame and back down on the next. Refer to issue 10473.

As a workaround for this game, there's a deinterlacing Gecko Code available at the Enhancements section further below.
