Re: Any update on shaders?

Plus, there are many conflicting views about CRT shaders. It would have to be a big decision between key devs in the team. Appreciating the amount of hard work and testing that has to go into adding new features, if it does happen, I think giving users more choices is the key here. There are comple...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Wow Almeath how did you get a shader running on ScummVM? I'm not a programmer and have no idea on how to do compiling. Getting a CRT shader working on Scummvm has been a dream of mine for a long time. I've even kept a classic 1600x1200 monitor at hand at all times to be able to play classic games o...

Re: Any update on shaders?

I have been testing this further, and my conclusion is that the differing results I am seeing between ScummVM (braindx CRT fork) and DOSBox SVN (using the tweaked lottes shader) is most likely due to differences in how DOSBox and ScummVM handle scaling. For example, in DOSBox SVN I can get the CRT l...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Agreed, the shader looks pretty awful in COMI. I'm sure there must be a way to scale the shader accordingly. BTW I also have a 5k monitor here, so we're essentially seeing the same. How about you test COMI with DOSBox SVN? I'm sure you'll get a similar effect with the tyrells shader. These were all...

Re: Any update on shaders?

As you can see tyrells & braindx looks very similar, and I'm pretty sure we could make ScummVM look exactly like that with the current implementation. But I must say, I very much prefer the current ScummVM look - tyrells is too soft and the grid mask too visible for my taste. I prefer the more subt...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Oh, I didn't know there were shaders for FS-UAE! Are they usable in the main branch? I'll check out DOSBox SVN as well to see if I can merge tyrells take on ScummVM. Yes, they are usable in the main branch. They are activated from your FS-UAE config with the commands: shader=[name of built in shade...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Also, just briefly comparing both shaders (braindx and tyrells takes on Lottes), it would seem they're quite different approaches. For sure they aren't the same code, even though they're both GLSL-based. Yes, I attempted to translate one to the other and it was just too confusing. I like what tyrel...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Anyway, make sure you're comparing the exact games to get the results you want. In lower resolution games it does looks better, but not quite as sharp as with the DOSBox tweaked version. Just a question .. was your edited shader file based on the original lottes crt or the tweaked version from the ...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Sure, here you go, and sorry about the delay. Let me know how this works, it's the very same and complete folder I'm using to compile the project: https://www.dropbox.com/s/0inx6azkhl5k9lm/scummvm-crt-shader-build.zip?dl=0 Just in case, the file to replace is /backends/graphics/opengl/shader.cpp . ...

Re: Aspect Ratio Correction on FM Towns Games

Edit: I forgot that a change we made to the ScummVM Info.plist to opt in to the dark mode support also resulted in the blurry display even when building with an older SDK. The 2.1.1 and 2.1.2 release (but not 2.1.0) were impacted by that. The change has since been reverted. But if you do not see th...

Re: Aspect Ratio Correction on FM Towns Games

(*) Please check it with: git checkout z_zm_height_200_base That's the point where I started my changes. Hopefully, it will be blurry there as well, meaning that the blurriness isn't related to my changes. If indeed it will be blurry there, try with: git checkout master git pull Maybe it has alread...

Re: Aspect Ratio Correction on FM Towns Games

My work is finished here, until I will receive further bug reports / success reports. Your hard work on this is greatly appreciated. Unfortunately I do not have time for full play-throughs, but I can confirm most of your above observations. Loom does seem to be the most heavily affected. I also hav...

Re: Any update on shaders?

Sure thing, I'm assuming you're comfortable with compiling from source, right? This is the file you need to replace: https://www.dropbox.com/s/xu2jz02wun13nn1/shader.cpp?dl=0 Would you be willing to zip up your main ScummVM build directory with the Lottes shader already patched, and then provide th...

I like it myself. It's a tad more aggressive than my Boxer shader but still looks authentic.
I would like to try your Boxer shader, and was wondering if it can be converted into a GLSL shader file for DOSBox and/or implemented in the ScummVM CRT branch?
