Last block flicker

#1 Posted by kerse (2114 posts) -

So this game has had some flickering issues the whole time I've played it, but its never really been an issue. But I just got the the 6th block and EVERYTHING FLICKERS, its raping my eyes. Anyone else have this issue? Any ideas how to fix it? I've been messing with various video options but they don't seem to help. Maybe I'll just get used to it, or maybe I'll have a seizure.

So I'm assuming you're using an emulator?

I never had that problem, and that was ages ago with a less mature version of PS2X.

I'm playing on a PS2 slim, and I am at floors 160+, never really seen any flickering on any of them, in battle or out.

It's only an issue on the PSN version, as far as I know there's no fix and it happens to everyone.

Yeah, I only assumed emulation because it seems crazy they'd release a product with such a known issue on PSN. That sucks.

Yeh it was rough to keep playing it, but I beat it eventually. It also sucks that the last boss flickers like crazy.

Yeah, I've been playing the PSN version, and I've seen quite a few flickering surfaces. It's unfortunate, but it hasn't really impacted my enjoyment.

Yeah, it's a problem with the emulation on the PSN version, and it does suck. It didn't really get in the way of how much I enjoyed that game, though.
