    I think the point isn't really to upscale the textures, when those textures were plastered on a screen at an angle the pixels were mapped noticeably uneven on the low resolution screen.

    The Zelda world map is a good example as they all line up better.

    And I'm outta here. There's no point in me trying to defend my choices or what I buy. :hateit:

    Ciao.

    That's not even close... Come back when you're leveled out.

    Why did you buy the Super NT if you didn’t care about accuracy?

    Why don’t you just emulate Snes9x on your Wii U if you don’t care about accuracy?

    Why don’t you run Snes9x on your PC if you don’t care about accuracy?

    Why not run Higan or Bsnes through retroarch if you don’t like the gui?

    Why don’t you use that $400 towards a better cpu instead of a Super NT with sd2snes?

    I don't use my Wii U
    I don't use Snes9x on my PC
    I prefer to run Snes games on hardware
    I didn't buy this PC, I got it for free

    Super NT is cycle accurate to real hardware using FPGA hardware emulation
    Any other condescending bullshit questions you want to ask? No?

    Do I go around bitching and shaming people for not using real hardware?
    Oh, I remember, no, I don't, so here's some advice from me: Back off

    Now, if you're done ridiculing me, we can move. Kay? Thanks. Next!

    Remember what I said earlier?
    Back off.

    I thought I'd give this a shot, just for shits and giggles. F-Zero and Pilotwings look so much different it's completely transformative. There are a few youtube videos of F-Zero floating around, but they don't really do it justice (I assume because of yt compression). Also, you don't really need that much of a god box to run this at full speed. I have a Ryzen 5 2600 @4.1GHz, and with the internal upscale res set to 1440p, and my monitor at 4k, I had a locked 60. Honestly, after 960p, it was a game of swiftly diminishing returns anyway.

    I think this is cool news. It'll probably be awhile before we all get to play snes games this way as like, an everyday thing, but I like that it's an option.

    In terms of bsnes it schedules each chip one cycle at a time, while other emulators will schedule the cpu for many cycles and then do a load of video rendering & then generating sound. Just because of how cpus and compilers work it's faster if you stay within the same blocks of code, so constantly switching has quite a large impact.

    Faster emulators will often gloss over subtle interactions between multiple chips & often that won't produce a noticeable difference. In some cases it will look ok, but still be wrong & others it will be fine. I think it's amazing that byuu has bothered to go to such extremes, even though I don't personally play any snes games & if I did then I'm unlikely to pick bsnes.

    Bsnes is made to be cycle accurate, which is why it's slow, but there is a setting you can change to make it slightly less accurate in return for better speed.
    Well, you could skip the SD2SNES and use the jailbreak firmware for Super Nt. Won't get special chip support without actually plugging in a game that has that special chip on it, but support for some special chips might come in the future.
    I agree SD2SNES on a Super Nt is too much money, unless you already have a SD2SNES.
    Then why not put that link as "Download" and use the actual news post as the source? Makes more sense to me.

    3DS and Wii U would not be able to handle the requirements for Bsnes.
