I was playing around with the settings a bit and I have found these settings to be near perfect for my FF VIII, I have not tested the entire game, just a few parts of it, I will play through the entire game and report if anything wierd happens. I noticed at kane's domain they said if you use 2/2 you will get battle swirls but a delay in battle, well tht delay was non-existant for me, my battles are fine and I do get swirls.

Here are a few things which my settings helped me achieve:
+ Elimination of ATB blinking like crazy
+ A great decrease in characters moving back and fourth when changing screens
+ I've used a lot of screen smoothing, but I reckon it looks much better this way.
+ you can get swirls on the map.

interesting. kane and i tried your settings a while back and we got the pause. we both have 6800s by the way so it'snot like we are running crap.

anyway, very impressive shots. screen filtering is great :)

Actualy. I realised savestates were getting in my way. The game fix seems to solve the pause issue.

Those are pretty nice shots. But that blurring... I can't stand it personally. I like a crisp and clear picture.;) Call me strange, but I like it like that.

I'm the same way Esturk, I wonder how the blurry effect would look on a TV though?

I don't think you'd need it with a standard TV, since it would already get interpolated by the TV. In fact, it may make it even more blurrier.

I bet you're right ;) Yea, the blurryness just doesn't do it for me :p Hey, can you take more shots with some settings changed to make it sharper?

Now those at 640x480 or 800x600 would look superb on a tv! :p

yeah, I'm with Esturk and Razor, dunno why but also hate all that blurr efect... those second shots are much better :) we just have to deal with that PSX gfx looks as it looks, not to blur it as hell :)

BTW. from some time I'm playing my psx games on my PS2 connected to pc via tv card, or sometimes I connect it to 29' tv, now that brings back memories :D and gets you that PSX feeling ;)

LOL, in that case he's wrong, I had a C64 back in my days. But why make it look like that, in epsxe, where games can acctually look good :S, that's probably what I'm too young to understand :D
