  1. Hey any shader homosexuals here that can tell me whether or not an OLED monitor or tv makes them actually worth using? Standard monitors aren’t bright enough and don’t have enough contrast to do any shader i’ve tried justice.

  2. i remember playing dragon warrior 2 on my hdtv and getting to the caves towards the end. Right around then I got my hands on an old CRT from my parents attic and brought it over to my place. Holy shit, the cave had an entirely different color scheme and all the sudden i could actually discern what the enemy sprites were supposed to be. It really isnt a meme. If you can get your hands on one grab it. A lot of times at yard sales they’ll let you have it just for carrying it off their lawn.

    • Yeah, I always felt "old" games looked better as a kid. When I grew up and started emulating things I was like wow this all looks like shit what was wrong with me. Recently found an old CRT and old SNES and was kind of amazed

    • It’s not trolling. The image is accurate. The people in this thread are ACTUALLY advocating for CRT, or at least a good filter.

  4. Don’t most emulators have a CRT filter? I don’t understand why this is so controversial. Play whichever one you think looks better. What, do you need people to TELL YOU which one looks better?

  5. The developers clearly took into consideration the blurriness and softening of the image, but other CRT "features" are just a meme. Use bilinear and call it a day. Don’t @ me
