Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water is comprised of three interconnected stories that converge to uncover the truth behind a recent string of tragic deaths in a forest marred by a history of suicides. As one of three people with the power of the Camera Obscura and the ability to see the shadows of those spirited away, you’ll explore the ruins of an eerie inn, a shrine filled with life-size dolls, and a lake full of dead priestesses. Each shadowy location is connected by a stream of water flowing throughout the mountain, and this once holy water is tied to the darkest mystery of all—the history of death and darkness on Mt. Hikami.

  • Broken/scrambled text and UI elements on Nvidia GPUs. This can be fixed by following this guide.

Configuration

For Cemu 1.14.0c you'll need two things in order to able to enjoy this game!
You'll need:
- CemuHook
- Un-check separable shader (in graphics tab under settings).

There are a few things that's still broken in this game graphical wise, like viewing photos and the camera view on the GamePad view.

1.11.0c Windows 10 x64 EU Intel Core i7 7700 3.6-4.2 GHz Nvidia GTX 1070 Nickcao2 3-30 Runs Ran well (25-30fps) until Chapter2, having major fps-drop(3-10fps) in the forest entering the fence.. What's worse is after the cutscene of Hisoka (captured by the ghost), crashed no matter what settings.. Some areas triggered memory leak: had to quickly escape from that area ASAP to prevent crash from out of RAM, also make sure have big RAMs (32 GB in my case).. If you use NVIDIA cards, turn off TileCache via NVIDIA Inspector or RivaTuner to make the screen and text clear without distortion..

FPS counts, music plays, key presses handles, just no any graphics displayed. There was no such bug at 1.7.5. With new shader system game randomly hangs at instant camera view changes and looks like it hangs more when I move mouse.
