Missing at least version identifier on post

Moved to General Discussion until thread is fixed
This was on RPCS3 v0.0.6-8091-1f82a26a Alpha | HEAD | Firmware version: 4.84

However now, under 8105-3753d27a Alpha, after the Santa Monica Studios Screen, the Emulator Closes out. I would Attach the Log File, but this Log File is apparently 700+MB in Size for some reason.
Using RPCS3 v0.0.8-9624-57a98442 Alpha on Windows.

CPU: i7-9700 @ 4.80Ghz
Memory: 16GB Ram
GPU: nVidia Geforce GTX 1060 6GB
SPU Decoder: LLVM Recompiler

Performance varies between 20fps (Wide open areas) to ~50ish fps (Small areas). Menus are always 60 fps. A few occasional crashes here and there but overall the game runs pretty well. I have currently played until Chapter 11.

A few graphical glitches, such as Megaera causing visual artifiacts can be solved by using ASMJIT Recompiler but the fps drop is around ~5fps.

- Backend: Vulkan
- Default resolution of 1280x720 is used with 100% scale. Switching to 150% resolution scale (1920 x 1080) also runs pretty well, but eventually leads to Out of Video Memory (VRAM).
- VSync: On
- Driver Wake-Up Delay: 400μs (This value prevents most crashes)

Also, the game starts and leads to a black screen after the Santa Monica logo unless one of the following conditions is met:

- Write Color Buffers: Enabled
- Force CPU blit emulation: Enabled


MLAA is disabled using patch.yml:
SPU-77ce25dab2a5ca1d96038cc3dc57c50c705ce38c: # God of War Ascension
#SPUNAME: 'Z:/output/USint6/SPUMLAATask/PS3'
  - [ be32, 0x00004440, 0x40800002 ] # il r2 0
  - [ be32, 0x000056C4, 0x4080008a ] # il r10 0

I'm using the disable MLAA method since the performance is significantly better than using Write Color Buffers and Force CPU blit emulation.

All other options are default.
