I just wanted to say thank you to all involved in getting this working. WOWzers. After using 2xsal, not being happy with the others in many ways, this is a shock at just how good this looks. Congrats! Amazing work. I was even comparing this to 5xBR and it honestly looks like this does a better job every so slightly from the screens I was comparing. Amazing stuff man. It really makes those old games look wonderful again.

xBRZ 1.3 is out. I take it the changes are no use to snes9x though.

1.4 which adds 6x is out.

Thanks for your work Zenju. Could you update the snes9x build you have on your builds page with xBRZ 1.4?

OV2,

whenever you have time could you implement the latest version of this great filter into the testbuild?

Thanks a lot!

Hello guys.

I downloaded the file "Snes9x_1.53 + xBRZ_1.2_Win32.zip".

The emulator only works if you are in a short path (for example, the root of the partition). It does not work in long paths. The Snes9x in the "normal" version works.

Is possible to make this version xBRZ work on long paths or create a shader xBRZ to use in the normal Snes9x?

Thank you.

Will xBRZ 1.4 be implemented in the 64bit build of Snes9x?

Just noticed zenju already did dirty work. Here's a 64bit build. VC runtime if you don't already have it.

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x with xBRZ scaler support

I modified some of the values in the retroarch shader blinky.cg mainly to have a more normal color scheme. This genius shader narrows the outlines and adds details within pixels, making everything look as if it was drawin in HD. It even has a slight animation to it, making things less static. It looks especially jaw dropping in Zelda with high xBRZ setting. Only problem is the image is still too dark so I need help from someone who can code, or possibly a solution for running multiple shaders (hint for snes9x). Here is a picture of the problem/current status (left) and how it should look ideally (right). The right side has been manually adjusted just to show you the possibilities.

Image

Code:
struct input
{
   float2 video_size;
   float2 texture_size;
   float2 output_size;
   float frame_count;
   float frame_direction;
   float frame_rotation;
};

struct vert_out
{
   float2 tex_direct;
   float2 tex_0;
   float2 tex_60;
   float2 tex_120;
   float2 tex_180;
   float2 tex_240;
   float2 tex_300;
};

void main_vertex
(
   float4 position : POSITION,
   out float4 oPosition : POSITION,
   uniform float4x4 modelViewProj,
   float2 tex : TEXCOORD0,
   uniform input IN,
   out vert_out verts: TEXCOORD1
)
{
   oPosition = mul(modelViewProj, position);
   float2 one = 1.1 / IN.texture_size;
   float angle = IN.frame_count = IN.frame_count / 60.0;
   float scale = 0.9 + 0.3 * sin(1.0 * angle);
   float2x2 rotate = scale * float2x2(
         cos(angle),   sin(angle),
         sin(angle),   cos(angle)
   );

   verts.tex_direct = tex;
   verts.tex_0 = tex + one * mul(rotate, float2(1.0, 0.0));
   verts.tex_60 = tex + one * mul(rotate, float2(0.5, 0.7));
   verts.tex_120 = tex + one * mul(rotate, float2(-0.5, 0.7));
   verts.tex_180 = tex + one * mul(rotate, float2(-1.0, 0.0));
   verts.tex_240 = tex + one * mul(rotate, float2(-0.5, -0.7));
   verts.tex_300 = tex + one * mul(rotate, float2(0.5, -0.7));
}

float4 main_fragment (in vert_out verts : TEXCOORD1, uniform sampler2D s0 : TEXUNIT0) : COLOR
{
   float4 tex_mid = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_direct);
   float4 tex0 = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_0);
   float4 tex60 = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_60);
   float4 tex120 = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_120);
   float4 tex180 = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_180);
   float4 tex240 = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_240);
   float4 tex300 = tex2D(s0, verts.tex_300);

   float4 minimum = min(min(min(tex0, tex60), min(tex120, tex180)), min(tex240, tex300));
   float4 maximum = max(max(max(tex0, tex60), max(tex120, tex180)), max(tex240, tex300));
   float4 diff = 1.0 - exp(-(maximum - minimum));
   return lerp(tex_mid, diff, 0.6);
}

Registered just to say thank you for this, and especially for including the link to the VC runtime. You'd think that I'd have them already what with every Steam install also including DirectX and VC++, but I guess not the 64bit version.

Thanks again.

Yeah, thanks so much guys. Just doing some more A Link to the Past and it is amazing.

For those that were not keeping up 1.54 of SNES9x was actually released with myriad improvements and native 6xBRZ.

Wow, I missed this! :D

It seems Snes9x is lacking some way to subscribe to release updates, e.g. via an RSS feed.

PS: Would it be possible to use an application icon that looks "less ugly"? :) It's a small issue, but lot's of users having Snes9x in a quick-start bar would appreciate. E.g. just use this one:
http://www.iconarchive.com/show/gaming- ... -icon.html
or this
http://www.iconarchive.com/show/gaming- ... -icon.html

Zenju, I am sure they might be open to something. Maybe post in the 1.54 thread. I know they did plan to update again at some point. Maybe they could get a different icon for the taskbar too.

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x with xBRZ scaler support

well wasn't there gonna be an snes9x 1.55 release?
it was mentioned in Github in early May 2017 but hasn't come out yet.

Post subject:  Re: Snes9x with xBRZ scaler support

I switched over to Retroarch version and ported my saves.

I don't use xBRZ at all anymore. ScaleFX absolutely is the best thing I have seen among the new shaders. While xBRZ is good, ScaleFX is on another level. All the jagged edges are gone from basically everything. Absolutely amazing.
