DotMatrix filter glitchy in Windows 7 and Windows 10

Post by Taiyaki »

New user here but I do have an odd visual glitch to report in the latest 2.1.2 version. I have tested on two different computers. My old PC running Windows 7, and my new one running Windows 10 (both run on different LCD monitors).

The issue is that the filter distorts in areas where there is movement.

It's hard to capture in a screenshot but easily replicated by running any game (eg Day of the Tentacle or Full Throttle), even just moving the cursor around will distort the filter graphics, if one clicks on a location to move, where the character moves leaves filter distortions (slightly infront, and a trail in the back).

I don't remember this issue being present in versions from years ago so I'm assuming something causes this.

There seems to be no such problem with the TVx2 so for now I switched to that as a fallback, but it's a real shame because DotMatrix was always my go to filter with Scummvm pending an actual crt filter.
