PS1 emulation dev team loses their mission
I bought cd disk with emulators in 2005 year (now im 27), by the way it was on CRT display

Ps1 games was fantastic for me, I had chrono cross/trigger

But recently when I downloaded epsxe, my reaction was like 'wtf is this' - ugly graphic, quite complex to run. As for me, I remember how to tune this, but what about new users, child? They cant play this

Its beacuse PS1 emulation party works too separate and they looks on emulation point only from technical side. And 1 person can make only 1 thing like shader, graphic plugin. They cant recommend something, they cant make a lot of thing

On NES/snes/gba consoles emulators is out of box solution and its quite good

But actually emulators should not be good from technical side in different place, they should emulate FEELINGS in the end, but they (and rertoarch) makes people to fuck with settings and provide ugly picture

What feelings was when you play in original PS1?

From technical size ps1 is 'bad' - it has 1mb video memory, 2mb ram, 66mhz processor. 3d games is like magic with this hardware. And they was created specially for CRT

So, things in real world have textures, CRT analog makes some noise and it add textures to everything. And due to some special things its not much difference about resolution

Different color model, not RGB, extremly different color output, different black/white point

Emulators dont worry about it

There is some shaders like 'natural', but they designed dab, they dont provide user color settings. For example, nestopia has this


There is something wrong, cause for example this NTSC shader was designed for CRT displays and nobody cares that LCD color model is wrong. By the way, corporation cares, but they LCD's bug with bright/dark white/black point represents as feature and create ULTRA black/ ULTRA white, HDR and other shit

I fix that in my shader designed for users, so you can edit variables. Pete allows to edit only 1-3 variable, like 'shaders strength', its very bad. By the way you can launch edited shader just with pause of emulator then run


Comparison with my/original/pete's result

Actually I wanna fix something in emulator and provide it better ergonomy, but im not a coder, if somebody is a coder and wanna help, you can write me there of if you like email [email protected]

bye)

Hmm they didnt uploaded

Original/pete/my variant







Pete dint fix colors and do not add noise, do not correct levels, has blocks on textures

There is some noise shader for ps1, but its not correct, cause its only dark noise, it adds black pixels, my adds black and white
