Re: Emulating MT-32 on an RPi2

in MT-32 General
Aren't there quite a few high quality sound cards for the Raspberry Pi out there that connect through GPIO pins as opposed to USB? Wouldn't that work even better? i haven't pursued that for a couple of reasons: 1) I usually use the GPIO for a 24bit VGA adapter that hooks up to an old RGB monitor …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

(ie: v-stretch knob adjustment)? Yes, I can, but I'm working with large (20" plus) video broadcast monitors that don't have readily accessible pots for vsize. It's an hour long journey to switch it back and forth, and it would have to happen too frequently. I may just have to get separate monitors …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

7F20, if you have an analog CRT PC monitor, can you try driving it a higher resolution than 240p? It's a CGA monitor, so it can't really increase the vertical that high. I have pushed it up to the ~260 line range for some console emulation stuff using modelines, but it can't do 400 vertical. …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

How are you scaling back down to 320x40? I'm not, I was hoping there was a solution that could scale the image up and back down. When you go from 1200 -> 240 every 4 out of 5 pixels will be thrown away, leading to uneven scaling. The thought was that uneven integer scaling could be done in x and y …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

Yep. This is exactly what a "big integer prescale then interpolation" does, and exactly what I am asking for. Low resolution pixel art (DOS games, consoles, etc.) deserves better than a simple blurry bilinear upscale. DOSBox should really get on with the times. This is exactly what I've been …

Re: DOSBox ECE (for Windows & Linux)

NOLFB was created by Ken Silverman since games that used Vesa 2.0 has issues with 2000 and above NTVDM so if the game had a fallback to 1.2 then NOLFB got them working but it also works in DOS as well. This reminded me of the issues with VESA drivers in the 90's. I recently watched this video where …

I wonder if part of what some people are seeing is their brain trying to process the patterns on the screen / optical illusion type stuff. If you do the scrolling test, you won't be able to focus on the pattern. The screen will be moving too fast to focus on any "illusions". It definitely is …

Has the monitor done something like that before? I never noticed the behavior before. I use this monitor at work pretty often. After reading the last comment, I went to a variety of pages to check and I didn't notice any flickering. I did an image search for color gradients, and they seem to be …

[…]flickering[…] […]flickering[…] I set up this demonstrator to test different patterns and colours. It’s a big playground so try not to go crazy with the feedback :-) Instead, at the moment please start by answering these things: Using the default (“Reset normal”) settings: 1. On which patterns is …

Could you please take a photo of this? It’s interesting to me how this is monitor is another one which comes with “flicker-less technology” and yet somehow is a big offender. I went into the user menu of my monitor and reset it. It seems to have reduced the flickering to unnoticeable levels, but …

Whoa. I just tried the Old Skool color scheme and it made my monitor freak out! It flickers like crazy and I see visible, yet faint, horizontal lines. Acer R240HY LCD monitor and using Firefox. Pretty bog-standard monitor and I haven't experienced this with any other web pages before. Maybe just …

Re: VIDEO Patch for pixel-perfect scaling (SDL1)

in DOSBox Patches
Retroarch supports integer scaling in arbitrary x-y directions. Cores for retroarch are, in most cases, libretro-specific and not main branches. (including dosbox) As long as you output at the right resolution, you get 1:1. It can get complicated tho because, from what I understand, different …

I have an older system that can only run older versions of browsers. Not that this is a solution to your particular issue, but as a stop-gap, have you ever used w3m? It's a text-based browser based on lynx but with multimedia support. I have successfully used it with vogons and logged in, etc no …
