Can we enhanced 2D background images in 3D hardware mode and get quality like software render mode???
Everybody know this best way to enhanced 2D games is using software GPU.3D hardware can also enhanced 2D too but you will get many line and that make it look not good as software render mode........................

You cannot enhance 2D and still look as "quality" as software. If it is enhanced, it no longer looks anything like software. The best you can do is turn on scanlines and hope it's enough to hide the flaws inherrent in textures designed for low-res analog.

The effect u mentionned in the software plugins are the Blur.
And pete once said that it was very hard to put it in the enhanced gpu like the ogl ones....

And yes, like killershots said, u should try the scanlines at a high resolution, like 1024x768.
Works great for me!The scanlines are much thiner w/ a high-resolution.

It's not hard to do it,it's impossible.

It IS impossible,if I remember correctly,the Blur is only available on nvidia cards and furthermore ONLY in software.

Well, here what pete has posted a WHILLLEEEE ago.



The nVidia blurring with the soft plugin is always activated, you only can
turn it off by disabling DirectX hardware acceleration in the DirectX control
aplet. Of course you have to reactivate it each time you want to play a real
D3D game.

The D3D and OGL plugins *could* do the same fullscreen blurring effect...
not by any tool/tweak, but by some honest hard plugin coding... but only at
a reasonable speed if they would render the game in the native psx resolution
(or maybe up to twice as high) and filter the output into the final window...

Well, the resulting display would be *exactly* like the soft plugin on Nvidia cards
(oki, maybe you would get a bit smoother color shading, but all objects would
look very low-res).

so I don't bother to make such an option into my current hw/accel. plugins



It s possible.
Ok it would certainly not render as well as the soft plugin.
But it s possible...

Bye

DAMN,I was wrong(that's why I said"if I remember correctly",an old habit to always keep an escape way:D )

OK,you were right Rargh,but if I understand well,it would look very bad,so it's not useful at all.
To tell the truth,the tile effect caused by filtering doesn't disturb(©)me at all.

hehe no problems at all man.
BTW, I can t bear the tile effect.
But I ve heard that (when using the D3D plug), U should notice less tiles when u put the texel alignment value to 7
(use a tweaking tool like nvmax)
I haven t checked it tough....
To say the truth enigma, pete has posted this when
I questionned the same thing as u did^^
