Looney Tunes: Back in Action is a platforming video game released in 2003 by Electronic Arts. The game is based on the film of the same name.

Problems

Direct3D 11 Graphical Bugs

When using Direct3D 11, Bugs and Daffy's shadows will flicker, and entering any area with water in it will push many UI and game elements into the Top-Left Corner of the screen. Using any other Video Backend fixes these problems.

Sound Glitch

A sound glitch occurs when you pause the game (not via the emulator, but by pressing start). The sound can last up to a few seconds or up until you go back to the map screen, pausing and unpausing doesn't help. Tested with DSP LLE recompiler in 3.5.

This has been fixed in 5.0-5578.

Enhancements

60 FPS

The following AR code will make the game run at 60FPS instead of 30.
