Summoner: A Goddess Reborn (known as Summoner 2 on PS2) is an action RPG for the Nintendo GameCube. The player takes on the role of Maia, a goddess reborn with the extraordinary ability to turn into powerful guardians, or summons. Maia must heal the legendary Tree of Eleh, the source of Aosi, the language of creation. Along the way, she meets a host of characters, including Yago from the original Summoner game.

Problems

Sound

The game randomly freezes when playing with DSP HLE emulation. Use DSP LLE recompiler instead.

Cutscenes

The game randomly freezes in cutscenes like the Palace of Halassar or Entres of Sepulchre. Reducing the CPU clock to 10% (47Hz) seemed to resolve the issue. Save before cutscenes and reduce the CPU clock. It's very inconvenient but the only way to play with this problem. Alternately use a much earlier build of Dolphin; r7670 works flawlessly, no lagging or crashes.

Configuration

This title doesn't need non-default settings to run properly. A full list of config options is available here.

Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
r7671 Windows 7 AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.3GHz ATI Radeon HD 4870 Game emulates very well so far. It runs at 60FPS natively so the 30FPS of the video here might look a little jerky, but never actually slowed down. Widescreen almost works, it doesn't support it natively. Pop in isn't awful, but the game doesn't render out enough to truly go widescreen with no problems so I chose to keep it 4:3 here. Summoner on Dolphin Emulator 1080p Vortextk
