Shadow Flickering in Dualcore

If using Dualcore, shadows may flicker in certain areas. Worse graphical issues may occur if fullspeed is not maintained. To avoid issues, enable SyncGPU or Single Core mode.

Stutter/Jutter in 1992 Prince of Persia Bonus Content

This game includes the Macintosh version of Prince of Persia from 1992. When playing this bonus, various character sprites will update inconsistently. To fix this, enable "Safe Texture Cache". This may not be optimal for the rest of the game, as Safe Texture Cache can be incredibly demanding.

Striped Shadows

Weird striped shadows may appear under the main character with EFB Copies to Texture Only. Disabling EFB Copies to Texture Only may solve this issue. Can't replicate in 5.0-6004, and unseen in 4.0-8901 or even r5192 videos.


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

r5192 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9505 @ 3.6 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT PoP: The Forgotten Sands running on Dolphin emulator. Game seems to run well, minor graphical glitches, runs at full speed most of the time. Currently the game only runs with the patch provided by user Spellforce on Dolphin forums (links below). If you're playing the game with Direct3D plugin, disable EFB Scaled Copy or else you'll get blocky graphics. Don't forget to enable Safe Texture Cache hack for proper graphics. Music works perfectly, sound can get out of sync. Played with real Wii Remote & Nunchuk.
