The original Silent Hill (my rom is NTSC) unfortunately has some bugs at least at the default settings:
- Beetle PSX HW: menu-/area-transitions (screenshot below) and the startup loading screen motion blur are displayed incorrectly
- Beetle PSX: Severe screen tearing
- PCSX ReARMed: Black levels don’t look accurate (I have very limited experience with this core as Beetle is said to be the most accurate when running games at the default resolution)
The loading screen which shows Harry running is to my knowledge only displayed when first loading a save and therefore can be considered as a very minor issue. Broken transition effects (screen should fade into black) are considerably more problematic as you frequently open inventory and travel between scenes:
Which core do you recommend? Can the bugs be alleviated or resolved by editing core settings?
