Dune MegaCD

07 Feb 2020, 23:33

Hi, can anyone tell me ,does the game Dune, by Virgin, have glitches occasionally (like every 3 or 4 seconds) when you talk to people? When I play this game on MegaSD the peoples faces flicker and glitch for a split second every few seconds.

I confess I don't own the original MegaCD game to try to compare. I prefer the game on the Amiga for the excellent music there.

Are you running the correct version of the game for your console region? (EU version for PAL, US/JP for NTSC)

I had to switch the console to PAL 50hz as I think the game only came out in PAL territories but yes I was running it in its native Hz.

I don't see the same flickering on any Youtube footage of the game.

I have a PAL console at home. I'll have a look when I'm there, probably next week. Did you try with graphics speedup on and off?

I believe it's off but I'll double check. I've also ordered an original copy of the game off eBay to compare.

The same glitch is happening on the real MegaCD too, so must be something peculiar about that game or something peculiar about my Megadrive. False alarm, there's no fault with the cart.

Edit - Even tried another Megadrive, still glitchy.
