Here are some image filters I made. I'll try to get the 2xSaI engine working sometime :)

Tell me which picture you like the best.

Here's the original...

Hmmm

The soft bilinear looks pretty good NickK...Not as sharp as the normal stretch, but with just the right amount of filtering to blur out the sprites.....Perhaps another sample using a 2D sprite heavy game...

Ok, I will be doing that sometime :)

keep up the great work nickk!
i think that soft bilinear looks really sweet. the regular bilinear looks good, and the super sampled dithering looks pretty good in comparison to normal scanlines.
any comments as to a performance hit when using filters? i use a p2 266 laptop most of the time and can only play in soft on it so that would be the biggest issue.

It depends on which one you'd want to use :)
I've got the soft bilinear running very fast at the moment, but I'm not sure of the performance of the bilinear stretch yet. I'd also need to make the dithering filter a bit faster for real time use in that situation since it was designed for use in still image processing.

Good thing I won't be using the majority of the distortion-type filters :)

Yup...that was it ..nothing like a bunch of sprites to prove a point....

Would be interesting to see Soft Bilinear on Valkyrie Profile...heavy 2D sprite use and rendered backdrops....

Thanks NickK!!
