Test Entries
Revision OS CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0-775 Windows 7 AMD Phenom 2 X3 @ 3.6 GHz NVIDIA GeForce 9600 GT Working. No problems so far to make the game unplayable. Some stuttering but no errors. God
4.0.2 Windows 8.1 Intel Core i7-4770 @ 3.4 GHz AMD Radeon HD 7950 Playable. When using a real or emulated guitar controller the emulator crashes upon exiting the game. Minor up-scaling issues

present. Audio delay makes comfortable play impossible on .

4.0-7876 Debian 4.1 Intel Core i3-4150 @ 3.5 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Playable. The notes show up properly, however the background is solid black. Effects such as turning the screen pink do show up, however. Goofybud16
4.0-9063 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-4670k @ 4.4 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Playable. Completely playable, occasionally a song starts stuttering but if the song is restarted it'll play correctly. D3D12, 1080p, 3x native, Guitar hero controller IronPirate
5.0 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-7400 @ 3.0 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 Playable. There's some occasional stuttering (mostly, if not exclusively, in Shea Stadium and Budokan venues), but nothing that ruins the experience. Its completely possible to play the entire game without major problems. D3D11, 1080p, 3x native ThiagoReis
5.0-2577 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-6600k @ 3.5 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Playable. Peformance in large venues like the Shea stadium has been improved significantly, backgrounds work now in some of the songs they were missing, running it with OpenGL, 1080p, with vsync turned on the game slows down a bit in some songs, but not in many after latest Dolphin update, with vsync turned off the slowdowns get replaced with minor stutters. As I said before game has had significant performance improvements since last Dolphin update, current version that I used. Wolfinston85
5.0-2872 Windows 10 Intel Core i5-6600k @ 3.5 GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 Perfect. Peformance is perfect for almost every song with minor slowdowns, or stutters now being limited to only seconds of some songs rather than in all, graphical glitches, and overall image quality has been improved to the point of perfection, the game looks and runs amazingly well, prior issues such as the problems with some textures not loading properly, or some lighting problems are now fixed. OpenGL, 1080p, with vsync turned on, widescreen hack enabled working now perfectly well, FXAA enabled in post-processing effects, anisotropic filtering set to 16 now also doesn't "garble" photos, but it does still garble videos, altho not to the severity from prior versions of Dolphin, Per-Pixel Lighting also enabled. DLC working properly as well. Wolfinston85
