This game was tested on 1f53a08. There are a lot of graphics not being loaded properly (appears invisible) on JPCSP. For example, if the user chooses Arcade Mode, there should be a screen where they can choose a mode (3rd Screenshot). After choosing a mode, they can select a character (4th Screenshot). The characters and other graphic overlays such as health bars are invisible as well (5th Screenshot). The graphical problems also occur when using the External Software Renderer. This error appears a lot in the log (with different addresses):

This game was tested with revision 69298aa. Many of the issues listed in the first post still exist when attempting to play the game. For example, on OpenGL a lot of the graphics are still missing from the screen (3rd Screenshot, characters are also invisible in fights). Also, when entering a mode to select characters, the emulator can freeze (music still runs in the background as shown in the log but no response to any button presses).

When using the following configuration, the save/load screen has flickering at random moments (1st & 2nd Screenshot, game flickers at many other places such as Title Screen and at the beginning of the opening video):
Code:
[X] Use vertex cache
[X] Use shaders
[X] Enable saving GE screen to textures instead of memory
[X] Enable dynamic shader generation (only relevant when using shaders, recommended for AMD/ATI)
On a general note, the selection box on the save/load screen is not aligned correctly (off to the left).

Using the External Software Renderer causes the game to become unresponsive at the Main Menu. If the user is quick enough to select an option, the graphics will flicker and disappear as the game becomes unresponsive. On OpenGL, only selecting the option "Use vertex cache" will allow some graphics to display with flickering (4th - 6th Screenshot).
