Best Software Filters For Xbox Emus
Posted 01 May 2011 - 02:07 PM
Like many, when i play emulators with my xbox on a SDTV i usually use NO hardware filter and NO software filters and flicker filter set to 0, and use the "accurate pixel ratio" option of all the madmab emus to have the best "real old school" aspect i can have.
When i play MADMAB/XPORT emus on my HDTV in 720p (like many xbox users nowadays), i prefer to use filters (because without them the pixels are to huge and ugly lol)
So for now, with years of experience it seems
software filter: advance mame2*
+ hardware filter: trilinear
This is the combination that gives me the best results (nice visual render and SMOOTH and FLUID animation)
some filters gaves ugly sluggish result (high quality2* hardware filters etc...)
Those filters are great but they are not the best available:
Not many know this but there is an excellent filter that give the best result:
it is the "3XSCALE" software filter present in FBAXXX PRO (in the end of the list)
It is really incredible but even the biggest roms neo geo, cps1,cps2 etc, runs incredibly FLUID,SMOOTH AND 0 SLOWDOWN! it is by far the best software filter if you play fbaxxx pro in 720p
unfortunatelly this filter isn't present in XPORT/MADMAB emus and not in final burn legends
the source code of fbaxxx pro is here:

Do you know guys if it could be inserted in the MADMAB emus?
thx for your answers

if you can put a beta in my gilou9999 folder in the ftp it would be great
out of subject: i have tested the snes9x 1.53 and yes the sound improves especially the powerup etc in games
but unfortunatelly it brings slowdowns in many games (even final fantasy when you entering narshe (first town) you have serious slowdowns
that's why i keep snes9xbox v2 (using 1.41 core?) all the snes games are perfect in animation (0 slowdowns) and the music is good (but not perfect like in 1.53)
we all hope you'll find a solution madmab (a switch core option?) because some games aare really better in term of sound (mario world, super metroid and secret of mana so far i have tested, are better)

Blargg's NTSC (Composite)
Blargg's NTSC (S-Video)
Blargg's NTSC (RGB)
Tv Mode 3x
Dot Matrix 3x
Most of them from 2x on up run with slowdown. Of the top of my head I think only TV Mode, EPX A-C, Tv Mode 3x?, are about the only ones that ran full speed. The rest may or may not run full speed on the souped up Xbox's that some have out there.
I did, however, discover that I implemented the NTSC filters incorrectly. So after fixing that there is a frame rate lost of a few fps... maybe 3 or so?
I'm currently still tinkering around with the sound code. For the most part it is ok, but on games with slowdown (aka games with special chips) it gets a little choppy. So I'm trying to get it a little more smoothly in those circumstances.
