A month and a half have passed since the mansion lab incident and now the secrets come back to haunt you in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (aka Biohazard 3: LAST ESCAPE in Japan). Join Jill Valentine in her attempt to escape a nightmarish city in ruins. Around every corner lurk hordes of flesh-eating zombies, hideous mutants, and a relentless new nemesis. You'll soon rely on cunning and brute force to stay alive. The Resident Evil series has taken a horrifying turn, unveiling new layers in the Umbrella Corporation's devious activities.


Inventory Issues

Sometimes when picking up an item or transferring items from inventory to a box, the item will disappear. This can be avoided by setting Texture Cache Accuracy slider to the first setting (safe). This is the default value since 5.0-14855.

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. This issue has been patched since 5.0-13452.


Graphical Artifacts on Environment

Environments will exhibit square graphical artifacts around some objects if Texture Filtering is set to Force Linear. Keep this enhancement at Default to avoid the issue.

r5092 Windows 7 Intel Core 2 Quad Q9505 @ 2.83 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT Game seems to run very well, full speed most of the time with almost perfect graphics. To fix glitches in inventory menu, use Safe Texture Cache hack, but this will bring lines to the main game graphics and there will still be some graphical glitches with items' appearance. Sound works well, though there are some missing voices and music. Controls respond well. Resident Evil 3: Nemesis (GC) on Dolphin Wii/GC Emulator 720p HD Full Speed nosound98
3.5-644 Windows 8 Intel Core 2 Duo E8300 @ 2.83 GHz AMD Radeon 5770 Almost perfect except for the slowdown in the beginning of the game. fly16
4.0-4473 Windows 7 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 The graphics in this game broke sometime after 4.0-2575 which was the last version of the emulator I used before upgrading to the build that I'm reporting here. Neither backend works properly anymore at this time. Missing developer logos, and all pre rendered backgrounds that this game uses for graphics are mostly gone, especially in game. Most of the background in game is black in simple terms Avoid this build if you plan on playing this game as other games are having issues with it as well. Yugix
4.0-4488 Windows 7 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GT 640 After that disaster known as 4.0-4473 the game runs with no visible problems two hours into it so far. Using all recommended settings except using LLE. HLE has no problems with music or sound so far. This game runs smoothly on my setup which is windowed 640x480, 2x native, OpenGL. Game runs fine in fullscreen as well beyond what I'm using. Yugix
4.0-6112 Windows 7 AMD FX-8150 @ 3.5 GHz AMD Sapphire 6950 HD HLE has no problems with music or sound. This game runs smoothly with windowed or Full Screen, 4x native, OpenGL. Also, set the texture cache to Fast for a smoother intro to the game and shotgun room. Sublimeice
5.0 Windows 10 Intel Core 2 Duo E8600 @ 3.33 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT The game runs perfectly with some adjustments. To achieve 30FPS had to use the Overclocked CPU option and set to 66%, yes it is a underclock. This way the game runs perfectly. D3D11, IR 2x. 30FPS all time (include beginning). BrasileiroGamer
