The Getaway doesn't have a half-screen bug as far as I know. It did have a fog wall, but it's been fixed.
Black Monday does have a depth issue with sunrays, not sure if it's a half-bottom screen issue.

Games with HW half-bottom screen issue:
Need For Speed Hot Pursuit 2
Killzone
Total Immersion Racing(fog in wet races)
TimeSplitters (Future Perfect, maybe the first two games too)
WRC II Extreme (fog in distance)
Crash Twinsanity

Does that have the half screen issue? I've never seen it on that game, probably because it was CRC'd out though :P

I've sorted the list as well, the order was killing me :P

I believe most, if not all, PS2 NFS games have the issue. NFS Underground 2 and Most Wanted definitely.

I think so. Bottom half of the screen is blurred or something and it misses fog.
Probably even NFS Carbon has it, but it is not the only issue there, because the game looks too green in HW mode. I will check those games on real PS2 soon.

FIFA 2003 doesn't have the issue, FIFA 2006 does. So it probably only affects FIFA from 2004-2006 and later.

I meant the issue started in 2004-2006, later games are affect too. So it should be FIFA 2006-FIFA 14(and possibly starting from FIFA 2004 or FIFA 2005, but I can't confirm those).

The Burnout issues are known, though the thick bars onscreen might have regressed in OpenGL. I think they were fixed for OpenGL in an earlier version.
You didn't even mention the sun shining through objects. :p

I didn't play it that much :P I was literally just loading them until they were ingame to see if the issue was there, I went through about 100 games, I wasn't thoroughly testing them xD

i often come back here checking for Crash Twinsanity, these bugs are prob very hard to fix but im happy to wait, i sometimes think this might be same issue for crash the wrath of cortex as the bottom half of the water on the water levels doesnt fill the whole of the screen in some parts

I'll take another look at Call of Duty 3 later, but I don't really think it has the half-screen issue. The half-screen corruption only occurs in the HW renders in the first memory card screen; but is easily resolved by switching to the SW renderer and back. The rest of the game is fine (ignoring the remaining graphical mess of course)

Edot: Nevermind, I was thinking of COD2 :P

I tested Fifa 2005, 2006 and 2014.

  • Fifa 2005 works fine (i.e, this issue doesn't affect it).
  • Fifa 2006 uses a new engine, so it has the issue (while it affects only the grass).
  • Fifa 2014 has the issue.

Looks like Thrillville no longer has this issue on version 20190503010305. I'll try and see which commit fixed it when I have time. Software and hardware rendering look identical now.

Update: It's patch #2934 that fixes it!
