Thought it might be useful to the ppl here who are fans of old windows games and niche emulators. Feedback appreciated.

He's said (elsewhere) that it isn't open source. You can only download the release.

Ok... where?

google gives me nothing for "mashakos" and "omniscaler" 🙁

EDIT: It's almost a googlewhack for me (I only get 3 results returned), which is something that has not happened to me in a long time...

github changed their UI recently, you should see a section to the right titled "Releases" on desktop. Which takes you to this page

I would like to see some D3D9 games scaled better (lanczos scaling for example), but that requires mouse input which I gather is rather complicated (dgVoodoo and GeDoSaTo often fail because of this).

mouse input required for pixel shader code? can you elaborate?

new version out.

https://github.com/mashakos/OmniScaler/releases/

Major updates:

  • Overhauled window clipping engine. Pixel offset edits in gamefs.ini are no longer required for 99% of situations.
  • Overhauled alt+tab, alt+enter logic.
  • Overhauled integer scaling and integer overscan scaling.
  • Custom mouse pointer. If a game does not include its own custom mouse pointer enable this feature:
    MousePointerEnable=1
    Custom mouse pointer is not compatible with overscan currently.

I just gave it a go, and now Westwood Monopoly starts in fullscreen! I can't yet access the top of the window after the intro videos, though,. Maybe I'll play with the pixel offset features...
