In Resident Evil (aka Biohazard in Japan) Raccoon City has been completely overrun by mutant beasts and bloodthirsty zombies. You are a member of S.T.A.R.S.--a rescue squad sent into the community to investigate the ominous mansion at the core of the disaster. Take the role of operative Jill Valentine or Chris Redfield and uncover the secrets behind a radical, genetic research facility. With an array of weapons to master and horrors around every corner, the ultimate test may be just to make it out alive. A near straight port was released for the Wii in 2009 under the title Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil.


Black screen when starting the game

On the PAL version, only a black screen may be displayed when starting the game. This is due to GPU timing issues. Refer issue 11569.

Disabling Store XFB copies to Texture Only or enabling Immediately Display XFB Copies fixes the problem.


Visible texture seams

Some seams show between textures. Set Texture Filtering to Default to fix.

Black Texture on Kerosene

When using Per Pixel Lighting, the front of kerosene containers is black. Disable Per Pixel Lighting to fix.


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


Config Setting Notes
Per-Pixel Lighting Off Fixes black kerosene bug
Texture Filtering Default Fixes texture seams
Texture Cache Accuracy Position 1 (Safe) Corrects map bugs
