Problems

Random Crashes

Game may crash randomly, usually after giving an 'unknown pointer' error two or three times over the course of an hour or so.

Enhancements

16:9 Widescreen Gecko Code

The built-in Widescreen Hack causes clipping issues. The following AR codes work as a replacement, causing fewer issues. To avoid conflicts, make sure that Widescreen Hack is disabled while using these codes. Note that as of 5.0-11476, some widescreen codes set to Auto aspect ratio don't work properly and will flicker between 4:3 and 16:9 at times. You can alleviate this by making sure that SyncGPU is set to FALSE, and possibly stop it by setting ImmediateXFBenable = True.
