During battle, when I select an enemy, the cursor does not appear. Instead I get a small pop-up window showing part of the enemy by the enemy name box. I end up attacking my own party sometimes because I can't tell who I'm targeting. During the many updates yesterday, after one of the updates, the cursor appeared and worked, but then the next update it was messed up again.
Some other issue is the speed. If I turn off the Framelimiter and set Frame skip to 50fps, everything works great except for during battle scenes. It speeds up quite a bit. Even when turning on screen filtering, it still runs at about 80fps. If I turn the limiter on, it tends to slow down to around 50-55fps with screen filtering turned off. Menu screens are slowed to a crawl in either case. The screen size is at 4/3 centered.
Also, what is HLE? I have it turned on. Would it help to turn it off?
EDIT: Also, I saved my game in FF8 in both slots, just in case. The game tells me that the saves are damaged, in both slots.
