In the forums someone said: "The black scenes problem is a projection issue in fact. The same affects Big Brain Academy. Probably fixing the projection fixes both games or more, I don't know. And this projection issue is in the code for ages, ever been. But well, it is Metroid now, so maybe the devs are inclined to find a solution. "

Actually svn 6174 (and i guess any svn as i tried it with 4797 and it worked there too. on a side note a little faster.) can play the cut scenes however it requires the opengl plugin and the Bleach Versus Crusade hack enabled. However it will make the menus invisible including the pause menu and title menu, as well as the subtitles until the hack is disabled. so not really a fix but the hack can be toggled during gameplay so you can watch when you need to and then disable it when finished. On a side note the game sometimes messes up the cut scenes. an example is texture corruption, and samus having a one eye blinking problem. However this does not always occur.

Some Pics 56k WARNING.

Other M title Screen with hack enabled.

Other M Cut scene samus lands on bottle ship.

Other M auto gameplay with hack enabled.

Other M Samus with GF troopers.

I have confirmed the Bleach hack fix however with the current rev im using (6199) you can use dx9 not just opengl, you just have to choose the hack under game properties. same graphic glitches.

#12 Updated by dataschmuck almost 10 years ago

yes, but if you use dx9 and enable the hack under game properties, is there a way to toggle the hack while the game is running like you can with the opengl plugin?
