    compat_comments: Started a new game, saw enough within five minutes (but played for a little longer to get a better picture). Also loaded up an old save of mine from original hardware for comparison.
    Upon starting it, first thing is that from basically the company logos, the render window is shifted about 20% to the right. This holds true in the menus, where text is misaligned with boxes (and completely invisible on the save loading screen), to in-engine cutscenes that have ghostly artifacts of every object where it SHOULD be framed.
    Wildly varying performance, from 17fps all the way up to 60. Battle screens run well, exploration runs...poorly. In-engine cutscenes (not battle-gameplay like summon animations) have A/V sync issues, with videos running at maybe 60% speed (and choppy), but audio running at full speed and just pausing until the video catches up to trigger the next line.
    When I loaded up a save further on in the game (couldn't tell how far, since the text was invisible) it cropped the window.
    Unplayable.
