    Kinda dissapointing to see a useless hard fork like this.

    Why couldn't this code have been proposed and merged in bsnes upstream?

    This just promotes pointless fragmentation, something bsnes was kinda able to solve.

    "PS2 widescreen patches are dumb", they said

    This is a super experimental feature and nobody wants to clutter up the code with potentially broken junk.

    Then keep it separate and perfect it before merging, as opposed to making it your own hard fork.

    EDIT: Ok, I looked into it, it seems byuu is ok with it based on the grounds that he doesn't find this feature relevant for bsnes, sooo, scratch whatever I said.

    err, well, I was just trying to refer to the option to render mode 7 graphics at a higher resolution, I might not be using correct terminology though

    Excuse me for being a dummy, but how do I use this?

    I’ve set it to widescreen, tried F-Zero with BG3 set to off. Not only is it not widescreen, but I’m not even seeing the Mode 7 HD effect. It just looks like normal SNES F-Zero.:(

    Edit: Okay, I've got it working. But when I raise the scale past 480p, and certainly past 720p, I get huge slowdowns. Any way to fix that?

    It’s a pity! I wouldn’t say my computer sucks, but I also wouldn’t say it’s really good.

    Oh well! 720p it is!

    So I guess you couldn’t use this on the Snes Classic Mini?
