Crystalis Screen Shake Fix

Hack of Crystalis


There’s a timing bug that happens on certain emulators on certain ROMs in certain scenarios that causes the screen to “shake” whenever a text box is on screen. This patch contains a fix for both the US and JP versions of Crystalis/God Slayer.

Credit for original fix goes to Steve Hacks of Crystalis Randomizer fame.

This download contains three files:

  • Crystalis Screen Shake Fix (US).ips is for use with the US localized ROM “Crystalis”
  • Crystalis Screen Shake Fix (JP).ips is for use with the original JP version of “God Slayer - Sonata of the Distant Heavens”
  • Crystalis Screen Shake Fix (JP - English BPS Patched).ips is to be applied AFTER using Stardust Crusaders’ English Patch. They ended up expanding the ROM and moving A LOT of things around, and as a result the addresses used for the screen shake fix have been altered. This patch is compatible, while the (JP) one is not.


UPDATE: Version 1.0a addresses a game freeze issue and should run seamlessly on all versions now. It is safe to apply this version over your current version.

No more shake!

Reviewed By: StratosVX on 08 Sep 2019

Thank you! This game has been one of my favorites since I first played it. Watching the screen bounce every time you have to talk to someone while playing on the Raspberry Pi was incredibly annoying. Now I don’t have to worry about it any longer. Much appreciated!

Version 1.0a Recommended - Yes
