CRT Filter or No Filter when emulating?

CRT-filter for handhelds
No filters for the rest.

>> No.3683502

Sort of wish there was a filter that just did the color corrections. Games seem too bright without it, and the only emulator that I know has this is Higan, but it's pretty botched on there, and makes the colors WAY too dark.

>> No.3683531

me too.

>> No.3683535

I always use filters to get rid of those awful-looking pixels but not a CRT filter, what's the point of getting an LCD if it's going to look like an old CRT or have those black bars on the sides?

Well, I mean, yeah. I did this for years before getting an old CRT to play on. Certainly enjoyed myself any damned way.

For some reason I just can't enjoy scanlines on LCD. Neither from emulation filters nor from video upscalers using real hardware.
CRT scanlines are fine though.

Terrible suggestion you sick fuck.

>> No.3683854

Hey, you said you wanted a less vibrant image.

>> No.3683865

no, especially not in good looking games like super metroid. i just use biliniear if i get tired of pixels and oversaturated picture.
higan just lowers the gamma you massive retard, colors are same as in snes9x. just adjust gamma in your video card config.

>> No.3684567

The correct answer is: do whatever gets you the most enjoyment out of the game.

For me, for that particular game? No filtering because it makes some pixel-perfect positioning tricks a bit easier. For playing most games casually? Filters are nice.

Computer monitors can look okay if you feed them pseudo 15kHz signals.

Why the fuck do people think these monitors look good?
The black scanlines are way too much, and make it look like I'm viewing the game through a fucking screen door or something.

Seriously, unless you're running windows Vista on a laptop from 1993 there's absolutely no way you can't emulate up to at least SNES with filters.

As far as I can remember, Nintendo Power always showed super-crisp screenshots of games. I was always jelly of them looking so good compared with my shitty blurry TV. Seeing Super Mario on a monitor like it was intended for the first time was an enlightening experience.

I'm pretty sure most magazine footage was captured via a Super Famicom Naizou TV SF1, or the C1 NES TV for NES games. WHich were CRT sets with built in consoles that innately displayed as RGB

Usually Normal3X for Dosbox, Component filter for Snes9x, autistic mix of options on Kega Fusion, 25% scanlines with blurring on Gens, and some software mode dithering in ePSXe.

I don't think the resolution of modern screens is enough to trick my eyes with a filter so they just cause me eyestrain from the forced blurriness.

I wonder, how could you get a modern PC to output at 240p to get good emulation, like using HIGAN?

if you'll darken gamma on the right one it will be objectively superior. there is a reason why re-releases never add any stupid fucking filters.

Is the Famicom TV really RGB? I feel like that's not true.

>> No.3687703

It looks good on motion, according to my tastes at least. If you ramp up the resolution the scanlines will look way better, but my only option is an 1080p screen and this is the closest I could get with integer scaling.

Yep, but of all the shaders I tried, this one looked and felt the best for me.
