Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
r7358 Windows 7 x64 Intel Pentium E5300 @ 3.6GHz nVidia GeForce 9800 GT 60 FPS. Positive. Game may run too fast.
3.0 Windows 7 x86 Intel Core 2 Duo E8300 @ 2.83GHz nVidia GeForce GT 220 Change Framelimit : Auto or 60 And use Direct3D9. Enable

The game is very stable.

3.0 Windows 7 x64 AMD Phenom II X4 940 @ 3.0GHz nVidia GeForce GTX 480 Reasonably stable except during heavy combat. Enable MMU speed hack and Accurate VBeam emulation in per ROM settings for greater stability. Ephemeralis
3.0 Windows 7 x86 Intel Core i5-2500K @ 3.3 GHz ATI Radeon HD 5450 Using 1 x Native at resolution 1024x768, Work best with OpenGL. Set 60 FPS and check limit by FPS for stable sound using HLE DSP.
3.0-159 Windows 7 x64 AMD Phenom II X4 @ 3GHz ATI Radeon HD 4870 Perfect when you use DSP LLE. Framerate drops in dungeons when there are a lot of enemies, but mostly runs at a steady 30 FPS.
3.0-589 Windows 7 x64 Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 @3GHz nVidia GeForce GTX 560 Very stable and speed is OK if I use OpenGL. Audio is extremely bugged though Alu
3.0-863 Windows 8 x64 AMD Phenom II X4 955BE @ 3.2GHz ATI Radeon HD 5850 1920x1080, 4xAA, 4x AA, 3x internal resolution, DSP-HLE, OpenGL -> Perfect, No errors, sound nearly perfect, except if you minimize the game. To prevent audio from being buggy, i used Framelimit: Audio and set "Limit by FPS" (sets framelimit automatic to ~30). Otherwise the game runs too fast (anything above 35 FPS). Despia
