I played the absolute shit out of games with my friends in gens 5-7. Long nights spent playing smash bros, Nightfire and Halo at LAN parties. Then 8th gen came along and not only did my friend and I grow apart, but games lost their artistic value and passion. The technology is there, but it all feels like a lifeless, formulaic corporate product. To this day, MW2 still blows me away with the combined spectacle of its soundtrack, action and art direction. A modern COD is a sloppy, half-finished product made to pander to kids whose brain has been dopamine-fried since birth. Playing the first Spyro game or Super Mario 64 feels like experiencing something genuinely curious and colorful. Even old Pokemon games from the GBA era and earlier feel like a simple escape into a world of manageable adventure.

Fuck, I dunno. Somewhere along the way, games lost their magic and started to be more transparently corporate. The monetary practices didn't help either.

About the time women started getting into video games.

No, seriously. Look back. About the time women started to seriously post about their interest in gaming on social medial and on picture sites when those were still a thing, they started really heavily making games branch out and that's when the trouble started. Once again, inclusivity comes at the expense of quality.

So what's the best scaler to get nowadays? Last time I looked at the market, there was the Framemeister, the OSSC, or various vintage linedoublers.
I have the OSSC currently, but it's not fully compatible with my plasma tv, anything above line2X will either be off center or flat out not work.
I'm looking for something that takes RGB Scart (composite/s-video input would be a bonus, my C64 can't do RGB), and outputs fully in spec 1080p signal even if that means full processing of the signal.
It would be also nice if it could do decent deinterlacing, the OSSC looks like ass with hi-res Saturn games.

Alright so this is my second post ever and I really think that this is my new home. You guys have inspired me to revisit my old retro game library. I often use a scanline filter because it makes most games look way better. However, I recently came across this video:
https://youtu.be/nw2QfPREu-Q?t=600
It's a hexagonal filter and I want to try it out but I can't seem to find anything online. I keep searching for crt shader/filter and hexagon but I don't seem to find anything. I know a lot of crt televisions had square tessellation for their pixels, but some had hexagonal tilings. Can somebody here please help me find more information about this?

tldr Where can I find the specific hexagonal shader shown in the picture?

look in your shader options for "dot mask". TVs had different layouts of the RGB phosphors, with common cheap TVs using the hexagon layout.

only high end CRTs (PVMs) used for medical equipment etc used the straight-in-a-line layout, which is why they are a meme.

I really want to play them legally but the physical copies are way too expensive and we are not even including the Apple II computer. I remember reading years ago that there was a problem with the translation and thus the reason they are not released but I can't find that post. My question is, who do I have to write to so I can ask them for an answer and hopefully a release of these games? It seems like the intellectual property is owned by Drecom and they are going to release new games but there is no mention about the older games.

Also on the off chance you're interested in actually playing the game, emulate the Llylgamyn Saga on PS1. You can turn off modern graphics so all you have is wireframe dungeons and the old enemy sprites.

legal =/= moral. If you were a 21 year old in Russia right now you might be legally obligated to shoot a 70 year old woman in the back of her head with your rifle. Does that make it the moral decision?

As far as games go if the people who made the game originally are not being paid I would argue that you actually have a moral obligation NOT to pay the people who are currently making money off of it who had nothing to do with it's development. With the current excesses of streaming services, venture capitalists buying up all the IPs, Disney etc. There hasn't been a better time to stick it to the copyright faggots.
