When I run vgs with a game like Gran Turismo 2. At First the graphics are clear clean. Then after I pick a car the graphics turn into the normal psx graphics. Any one know anything about this?

yeah, it's also like that in the Japanese version. But hey, we're talking about VGS here, your basic emulator. ;)

AFAIK, Gran Turismo uses a higher resolution for the title screen (368x480, or something like that)... during gameplay, it's back to standard PSX resolution (320x224).

if you have a GeForce card then maybe you can stand the graphics a little coz it does DDraw filtering which should lessen the pixelation or much better if you have a TV out coz it'll appear like PSX graphics on the TV. OR try aldo's res patch.

Chrono Cross uses high resolution graphics (640x480) for the menus and normal mode-x resolution for the actual gameplay. It's only one among a handful of games to do so.

The TNT and TNT2 cards also do DirectDraw filtering, and I think the Riva128 may do it as well. And yes, the graphics look MUCH better with filtering on, especially 2D games and backgrounds. It doesn't tile like in epsxe. The polygons still look pretty shit though.

yes but will also lose some fps use dxdiag(disable DirectDraw acc) to remove filtering

Yeah, disabling DirectDraw acceleration leads to horrible slowdowns in DD applications and games. I don't think VGS can be helped but other programs can override the hardware filtering with gfx blitters (Nebula).

bummer...that's the only way?

because, sometimes, filtering gets accidentily turned off in vgs....really I dont know why, it just happens sometimes....

Actually I experience that too sometimes... especially after starting, and restarting VGS several times. And it's actually disabling DirectDraw acceleration - I notice a loss in FPS when the filtering is off. It seems that VGS doesn't shut itself down properly in some instances..... I always have trouble starting Daemon Tools right after I use VGS.

the best solution is buy a pci S3 Trio64 video card :D :D :D it doesn't support filtering and change your cutting edge 3d acc :D :D :D

it would've been nicer if it were optional.


weird nvidia....I'm not too enthusiastic about their cards anyway...geforce looks like it's the best card because it gets most support. But from what I've seen the image quality of a voodoo5 and radeon are much better...if games were optimised for them they would be faster too...besides, nvidia cards have these weird vsync problems and other bugs (which you'll mainly notice in older games, because new games are nvidia optimised) .That's also the problem with 3d mark 2001...it's some sort of commercial for nvidia cards, not a true benchmark.

of course the geforce 2 I have now is faster than my previous card (voodoo2) but when I compare them on things other than speed I still say I liked the voodoo2 better.

oh, no doubt the geforce is a good choice at the moment....but not because it's such a good card...it's because of the massive support it gets.
