That's pretty rad. I would personally rather scaling and/or filters, but I dont even have a hackable vita so I cant complain really. Something about playing a tiny screen on a bigger screen always bothered me more than uneven stretching of pixels but oh well. People will love this so props to you!

sadly It may be impossible using filters/shaders on psvita because of Its weak cpu...

I've put the Psd files into every 7z package, you can change everything you want such as the scanline, gridline, front color or somgthing, then save as a png.

I take it from the comments that there's some risk in using these on an OLED Vita? If so, how bad is it?...
I dont know either, but I will release a set of none-frame version for 1k soon...everywhere black but the mid. Oled pixels will not work at total black area.

GBA overlay optimized, now looks more like a SP screen which has harder vertical gridline than the horizontal one;
add a Blue Ver of GBL overlay :)

actually,the color of vita2000's screen is closer to my PC screen, almost the same, more than the pic shows below. and I dont like the OLED of vita1000, colorful but overrich.
