Yeah, NEStopia default with the NTSC filter is pretty much exactly what a decently-calibrated mid-to-late 80s TV would've shown if you didn't screw with the color and tint controls :-)

Is it possible to bring 2xSai back in the next release? That would great. In the meantime I'm staying with 1.35.

Great job on all the releases!


Hi, i'm one of those that want the 2xSaI filters added back. I don't use hqx or ScaleX. I'm not saying they are bad or something. I just simply like more 2xSaI filters. Could you please put it back in the next release???? We have to leave all the options intact. There are a lot of us that like 2xSaI filters y others that prefer hqx or ScaleX instead. Why not leaving both and everybody is happy??? As simple as that. Thanks a lot. I love the emulator though, very accurate.
Bye.

thanks for the speedy response guys, it was informative. I figured that everyone grew up looking at different tvs, but I can accept an "accurate as possible" standard, I'm all for accurate. I'll prolly have a different one for my blaster master as it seems to look right with one setting to me than most all games, but it does look great, and I LOVE Nestopia, keep up the great work!

I removed the 2xSaI filters because I felt things were starting to become bloated. Never been that much of a fan of video filters (except for blargg's NTSC filter which I almost always use) I decided to keep only the better looking ones - hqx as the full blown bells and whistles version and ScaleX as the faster ghetto version.

The color calculation of internal palette works in the same way of 1.35.

The external and internal palette still use different color calculation.

Is this a bug?

No. only hardcoded palettes were affected by this change.

I don't think SourceForge, where my site is at, would consider them relevant enough for the project. Besides, there may be some legal issues regarding the distribution of them.

I'm with Marty - NTSC is the only filter you actually need. If you can't handle what NES games really looked like, don't play 'em .

You could use the Mac version which supports a ridiculous number of different filter options... though even I admit it's a bit silly to run HQ4x and NTSC simultaneously laugh

Yeah, optional things are good because, as Vic Viper would say, options are good. Different people, different tastes (or filters).

This isn't a matter of taste - the NTSC filter is almost exactly what the games truly looked like in the 80s when we were playing them on real h/w. The other filters all scramble the image in an attempt to make games look good to people who weren't born yet when they were released.
