Hitman 2: Silent Assassin forces a retired assassin back into action by treason. Visit the dark recesses of the world corrupted by crime, greed, degradation, and dishonor. Your contracts will take you to exotic locations around the globe including Sicily, St. Petersburg, Japan, Malaysia, and India. A diverse arsenal of equipment, from armor-piercing rifles and explosives to chloroform and poison darts, are at your disposal. Stalk and eliminate your targets up close and personal, in either first- or third-person perspectives. You must decide whether to use stealth or aggression, but be careful--you'll have to deal with the consequences.

Emulation Information

Improper GameCube Font

Due to copyright concerns, Dolphin is unable to include official GameCube fonts, and instead uses Droid Sans. Unfortunately, Droid Sans does not align well with the size/kerning of the official GameCube font, which can cause text to be misplaced, dialogs to display improperly, and other issues due to differing text sizes.

This can be corrected by including a region appropriate GameCube IPL (i.e. BIOS ROM) under <Dolphin User Folder>/GC/. A GameCube "IPL.bin" can be acquired from a real GameCube using Swiss. Refer issue 8362. GameCube BIOS files need to be named "IPL.bin" in order for Dolphin to detect them, and should be 2,097,152 bytes in size. IPL files are different for PAL consoles and NTSC consoles, but American NTSC consoles use the same IPL files as Japanese NTSC consoles. The known good CRC32 checksums below can be used to validate files, but it is possible that a bad dump with a different checksum also works.

Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
4.0-4488 Ubuntu 14.04 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Very playable. The only graphical problem I noticed was the images of the buttons used in menus aren't centered right, and cut off the edges only to wrap them around to the other side (hard to explain). Couldn't fix with any settings but it's so minor it doesn't really matter. All cutscenes work, audio works great with HLE except for maybe a crackle or two here or there, and in-game everything plays perfect. Solid 100% except for one dip to 80% in an exceedingly large area. Finished the first three stages with no major issue. Xerxes
5.0-108 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 No issues. Needs real text from a bios or ripped fonts. JMC4789
