P.N.03, short for Product Number Zero Three, is a 2003 third-person shooter video game developed and published by Capcom for the Nintendo GameCube. Its protagonist, a mercenary named Vanessa Z. Schneider, fights an army of berserk robots in a space colony compound. Vanessa wears special body suits that provide offensive capabilities such as shooting and explosive area-attacks.

Problems

Banding

Significant banding appears in most of the game (the indoor areas). Unfortunately it's quite noticeable due to the indoor environment's aesthetic of curved shapes with white textures. No configuration seems to get rid of the bands. The last revision without this problem was 4.0-1146. The bands were introduced in 4.0-1192.

Intro Cutscene Audio Desync

The audio lags behind the video in the "new game" cutscene. The easiest place to see it is at the first laser blast at 1:00. The audio is synced up again in the "radio" dialogue that follows.


Enhancements

Smoother vent textures

Turn on Force Texture Filtering to smooth out jagged rendering of "vent" textures.
