An epic gladiatorial saga comes to life. The darkness of the Great War has passed and the lands of Gladius are peaceful once more. Now combat takes place only in the gladiator arenas, where schools from around the world compete for the title of Imperial Champions. Follow the grand saga of two young heroes, Ursula and Valens, as they recruit and train a team of warriors and compete in the gladiator games. Battle with deadly weapons and powerful magic as you learn vital combat tactics while you enhance and customize your own characters. Strategies are nearly endless, with 16 character classes and over 100 unique character types from which to choose.


Game Freezes

Works perfectly in r5698. After r5699 game will freeze at points unless dual core is disabled. Due to an unknown revision afterwards, the game fails to boot entirely. Fixed with the merge of the FIFO-BP in 3.5-644.


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

style="white-space:nowrap;Expression error: Unrecognized word "r".Expression error: Unrecognized word "r". Windows 7 x64 AMD A6-3400M @ 2.4GHz AMD Radeon HD 6650M Works fine with dual-core enabled. It runs too slow for this machine, though. I played nearly the entire game with no issues other than cut-scene audio issues. Starscream
3.0-811 Mac OS X 10.7.5 Intel Core i7 @ 2.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6750M Not working. I get an endless white and silent screen at launch. I tried default settings with different combinations of DSP HLE or LLE, all 3 CPU engines (Interpreter, JIT Recompiler and JITIL experimental recompiler) and enabling/disabling dual core: same result in all cases (except for displayed framerate). A few times, the emulator crashed when quitting. Nolendil
3.5-1101 Mac OS X 10.7.5 Intel Core i7 @ 2.2GHz AMD Radeon HD 6750M Playable but slow. The framerate is usually around 20-30 FPS in-game and 40 FPS in menus on this computer, which produces choppy sound. I played all the tutorial fights (Pirgos training) and didn't see any other issue. Nolendil
