Hey dudes

Hope someone can help a guy out. Even though it shouldn't, my SFF looks all seven kinds of ass. It's blocky, grainy low-resolution ASS.

Looks like I'm up to snuff under the hood:

Windows XP
Intel Core 2 Duo E4400 4400 @ 2.00GHz on 2 CPUs
Direct X 9.0c
DDR 1024 MB memory

I can't figure out why it continues to ass up all over my screen. Come to think of it, I have similar ugliness issues with a few other games and emulators.

What is the DEAL? Is it because my memory is single channel?

Thanks. But is there any way to make this look better? Lots of suckers on youtube are running some games on SSF that look like they're on the Saturn.

Why can't I do that? I really don't get it.

Most of the Segasaturn videos on youtube use GiriGiri which uses OpenGL to smooth all the polygons like Epsxe does with playstation games

I use girigiri for all my sega saturn games on PC!
especially because SSF makes sega rally look pixelated like gba but......
this is a pic of it in GiriGiri, the car looks really smooth and sharp!

it's much faster than SSF 0.10 prototype and SSF 0.8:)

dude, thanks for taking the time to lend a hand. i'll check out how it looks using your emulator and get back to you.

of course, i've been looking this up all over the place when i get a spare ****ing second. a lot of folks say this is just what happens on computer monitors, and if i were to TV out this **** to my TV, it would look much closer to the saturn. is that opinion worth a damn?

thanks guys, really appreciate it

It looks so smooth because that video has low resolution, it's displayed on a small window and filtering is applied when you switch the video to full-screen. Try recording and uploading a video yourself and it will look the same.

If you run the game on a real Sega Saturn it will look better. Not because the emulator has a problem or something (on the contrary, SSF uses software rendering to resemble the graphics as they were on a real Saturn without any kind of enhancement) but because the emulator outputs the display on a monitor whereas a real Saturn is usually connected to a television.
