Graphics: 1280x720 | 16:9 | Frame limit Off | Bind SPU Threads | Lower SPU Thread Prioirty | Write Color Buffers

Tested on 1 combination of the Renderer, PPU, and SPU configurations. The game creates a save file on startup. If you start the emulator again after the save file is made, you must delete it first for RPCS3 to continue. The game freezes during combat in tutorial due to Pull #2083, otherwise it's Playable.

Tested on 2 combinations of the Renderer, PPU, and SPU configurations. Another month of RPCS3 progress and it's a major improvement! Almost twice the FPS in missions, the save bug has been fixed, and the game no longer freezes and crashes during tutorial combat! There are some minor visual issues, mainly in Menu screens, but overall runs well enough during missions! Thank you RPCS3 Team!

The game freezes with a white screen ( tried all settings ) after the cutscene with a girl almost dying after the first possibility to save the game ( after 25 min. into the game approx. ) and having some spiders killed for the first time, probably at the start of the second chapter or prologue of the game. ( Can't speak Japanese but the gameplay is nice ) Before that gameplay and cutscenes are very playable but then it stops suddenly.

Thanx for replying. I don't consider this playable tho when it's crashing at the second mission right after the long cut scene. Can you get past it? It's beyond the youtube video you posted.

Hmm, I just tried it again running the same settings and build as the post above and I think I see the problem you're having. I normally skip through the cutscenes which is why I didn't see it. The emulator seems to not be loading certain files necessary to continue and that's why it's getting stuck.

After the pink haired character (Bren) gets attacked by the large enemy, two pre-rendered cutscenes are supposed to play, one showing him getting rescued, and the second one that happens at night with the blue haired girl (TeeKee). Oddly, the video does freeze, but the game is still running because the controller vibrates during certain parts where it would be synchronized with the video.

I'll check back next month to see if there's any changes. As a workaround, you can either press Start, Down, and Circle during pre-rendered cutscenes to skip them, or delete/move the 'movie' folder from the files and the game will simply skip to to the next part of the game, which in this case would be the hub area, Advance Base.

Thank you so much for checking this for me! Sry for replying a bit late but i was too busy unfortunately. I just made a video of it but now i see you're getting stuck as well at the same place, so it's not my cpu luckily :-) Didn't notice the vibration on the controller as i don't have a compatible one. I'm looking forward to a build which plays this game really fine cuz i like this style of games of capcom very much. Well i'll post the video anyway so you can see skipping doesn't work with me. I'm always getting a white screen after skipping the videos around these cut-scenes and always at one scene where i can't continue whatever i do. Before this part of the game skipping videos worked fine but here i'm out of luck. But deleting the corresponding videos is a marvellous idea which i gonna check out right now!

Edit: Neither removing the corresponding video file nor making a dummy file of it worked unfortunately. So this should be removed to in-game i think like the other version.

I was waiting for the improvement of this particular game but in the latest version of rpcs3 it does nothing anymore unfortunately in whatever setting i use. It not even displays the frame rate. Just a white screen with nothing. So it went from in-game ( imo it was in the wrong category ) to nothing. I hope this will be fixed in an upcoming version. Might be a problem on my end tho but i don't think so.

VULKAN
V+Rec(LLVM)+Rec(ASMJIT): Loadable. Stuck on E {rsx::thread} RSX: NV3089_IMAGE_IN_SIZE: Invalid blit dimensions passed.

Sadly, the disc version of E.X. Troopers does not work in the emulator anymore. For anyone interested in playing it, use the PSN version or use the last working build. After testing a lot of builds, I've narrowed it down to this:

Works:
PR #3437 | scribam | rpcs3-v0.0.3-2017-09-12-01ffaab3_win64 | 0.0.3-6216

Breaks:
PR #3454 | Nekotekina | rpcs3-v0.0.3-2017-09-19-5c93acef_win64 | 0.0.3-6220

Hopefully this can be fixed in the future, because the PSN version runs smoothly on the most recent builds of RPCS3.
