Just dropping a word to note that I’ve experienced several soft-locks in Shadow Tower when running Beetle PSX’s max performance dynarec option. I have internal texture resolution set to 2x and pre-cache for disc loading, but all other core options were default. Playing on 1.8.4 in Windows 10. Essentially, when you transition to a new zone in the game the current zone fades to black and shows the name of the next zone before the new one gets loaded; this is where the lock occurs, with the name of the new zone on the screen. I’ve also had it happen when transitioning to a shop; no name gets displayed in these instances. Switching from Max Perf to Beetle Interpreter (Disabled) fixes it.
