Do you ever use filters/shaders for your games /vr/?

I've seen this wonderful screen millions of times in my life. It's not supposed to look like that. Get a real TV already.

How is it supposed to look then?

I have a Princeton Graphics 27" VGA 800×600 "presentation monitor". The forbidden pleasures I feel applying CRT filters to retroarch on a CRT are beyond compare.
>>
>>8360702
I used to but I've come to appreciate the simplicity of not bothering. I just have sharp bilinear as my default for all emulators now.

Do you have any idea how many different CRT TVs and looks there were?

I bet if OP had worded his post the same way but using the picture from a real TV, you'd still have said it looks wrong
>>
>>8361154
im not saying it looks wrong, to me it might even look exactly the same like a crt, i emulated on pc and had it connected to some old panasonic crt with a vga to comp converter and it was cool, to me sitting in front of an old tv is part of experience, some might say that shaders might ever look real crt, maybe but i dont know much about it but still playing on a big ass tv is more fun to me, and and the end whatever works for you is good enough but for me? the tv with a phat ass is part of the game :))

I absolutely love using the Wii for emulation because it can output native 240p without any hassle and it looks phenomenal on a CRT. I'm looking forward to moving out of my tiny studio apartment into a place where I'll have room for a CRT again. I'm so low on space I can't even have my little 15" permanently set up anywhere. It stays in my closet and occasionally gets brought out onto my table for longer game nights.

Did anyone ever make a Game Boy border shader using the design of the Game Boy from the box art?
I remember a long time ago someone on /vr/ saying they were working on one but I never saw it.

Why shouldn't it? It's no different than a onboard VGA DAC at that point.

>>8366438
Which component? YPbPr or RGBS? Since the latter is easy, the first one requires a VGA to YPbPr converter though.
>>
>>8366701
How's the input lag on that setup?
>>
>>8367193
Considering there's no active conversion and it's all analog the whole path, no different than normal VGA, aka instantaneous.

Unless you're talking about VGA/RGBS to YPbPr, then depends on the converter.
>>

How's Tetris look on that?

Since I got myself a modern computer I've now taken the full memefilter pill.
CRT-Royale looks great at 1080p but I think I need more resolution to make it have any effect on higher res games.

An example of high res, at 1080p it just looks like vertical lines running along the screen, not enough to show distinct scanlines. Though from a distance it still looks good.
>>
The only problem is that royale looks awful on BSNES, since the emulator outputs everything at double the native resolution for some reason.
>>
>>8368002
BSNES-Mercury output for comparison. I've just stuck with this core even though I feel like I'm wasting a good machine by not using the main BSNES.

Sorry for the late response. It's HSM Mega Bezel (doesn't come stock, you'll have to google it, not hard to find). It's not the base setup though, has some custom work done to it. If you download the "presets and examples" pack for the shader, there's a "Royale clone" preset that's pretty close. Messing with it from there can get you great results
>>
>>8360702
It's a cool gimmick, but the biggest benefit of CRTs comes from perfect motion clarity and no additional latency.
>>
>>8368106
>no additional latency
Modern TV's have almost no addition latency compared to CRT's. My OLED in game mode has 11ms of display latency, compared to a CRT's ~8ms. That's less than 1/5th of a frame of difference
>>
>>8368256
CRTs have no input/processing latency, the only latency they have is bream draw time to complete a complete frame. Your "8ms" is absolute bullshit.
The problem is that most panels are only low latency at high refresh rates, but this being /vr/, we care about 60 Hz only and CRTs only take 16ms total from the frame starting to be drawn to be done with it (at 60 Hz), this includes the input/processing latency.
CRTs quite literally can change what the beam drawn on the fly from data from the video source, there's no extra delay.

The best panels we have take around 4ms input/processing latency and then whatever the frame takes. This does not include GtG times though which can be much worse.
So in the end you just end up with blurry motion and higher total latency, specially at 60 Hz.

(input as in video signal, not controller etc.)
>>
>>8362940
What game
>>
>>8362940
colour is too vibrant, but otherwise accurate
maybe lower the saturation
>>
>>8368278
If a CRT takes time to draw a frame from top to bottom, how is that not input to display latency?
>>
>>8368309
Because technically the second you send a signal to a CRT, the beam changes, instantly without any additional latency, same does not apply to pixels on a panel. So the input latency is 0.
As stated in the post, CRTs only have frame draw time, but so does every other display technology.
>>
>>8368317
Right, but I'm strictly concerned with, given original hardware, the amount of time it takes for input to directly translate to a response on a screen. Obviously this is different per game, but I mean in general. If it takes a CRT Xms to draw a frame, given no additional latency, I'd say a CRT as Xms of delay

For my TV that's 11ms. That includes processing. That time to physically draw the frame. Just 11ms.
>>
>>8368329
>For my TV that's 11ms. That includes processing. That time to physically draw the frame. Just 11ms.
At 60 Hz and 60 FPS you literally can't switch between two frames faster than 16ms, physically impossible.
>>
>>8368284
DQ I guess
>>
>>8368329
>11ms
CRTs are sub 1ms. Even good LCDs can get 1ms response times. OLEDs I think are the only screens faster than CRTs due to they're draw time being basically 0ms.

depends on the game. For 3D ones I tend like smoothing filters more. Also, for whatever reason CRT filters look like shit in screenshots even if they look good on your screen.
>>
>>8371389
You're saving them as jpgs, of course they'll look worse.
>>
>>8371389
Man, right looks nice
>>
>>8368256
Latency is rather vaguely defined when it comes to monitors. 11ms is ambiguous as we don't know what method was used to arrive at that value. The problem stems from the fact that in the common case, a frame is scanned out line by line over the entire frame period, so for 60fps it takes 16ms to send the entire frame to the monitor, and as such the absolute minimum amount of time possible for the entire frame to be displayed is 16ms.

A CRT has 0ms of additional latency above scan-out time. But we don't know what 11ms means in the case of the OLED, does it mean 11ms in addition to the scan-out time, does it mean 11ms absolute time to the middle of the display? It can't be 11ms to the end of the frame since that is less than the 16ms minimum. I would expect that its 11ms in addition to the scan-out time as that gives the best numbers for the specs.
