'''''Resident Evil 2''''', known in Japan as ''Biohazard 2'', is a survival horror video game by Capcom originally released for the PlayStation in 1998. It is the second installment in the ''Resident Evil'' series, and was later ported to Microsoft Windows, Nintendo 64, Dreamcast, Nintendo GameCube, and Game.com.
+
Ready or not, the terror of '''''Resident Evil 2''''' (aka '''''Biohazard 2''''' in Japan) is here. In chapter one, the case of the disastrous T-virus outbreak--a mutagenic toxin designed for biological weapons--was eventually closed but the experiments were far from over. Control the destiny of Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield as their nightmare begins when a biotech terror runs rampant in Raccoon City. Relentless zombies and hideous monsters are all out for a taste of your blood. If the suspense doesn't kill you, something else will.

Ready or not, the terror of Resident Evil 2 (aka Biohazard 2 in Japan) is here. In chapter one, the case of the disastrous T-virus outbreak--a mutagenic toxin designed for biological weapons--was eventually closed but the experiments were far from over. Control the destiny of Leon Kennedy or Claire Redfield as their nightmare begins when a biotech terror runs rampant in Raccoon City. Relentless zombies and hideous monsters are all out for a taste of your blood. If the suspense doesn't kill you, something else will.

Problems

Music Drops Out

Due to the removal of the ARAM-DMA hack on 5.0-560, the music will drop out in game areas that use two audio tracks (ambiance sound count as an audio track), refer to issue 9840. A workaround is using older Dolphin builds that still have the hack, like 5.0-550. Additionally, the patch below can be applied on 5.0-560 and newer to fix the problem for Leon's story in the North American release of the game:
