Hi, I'm trying to make a Snes9xGx build with Scale2x instead of Hq2x because Im getting sick of using regular filters that make the image blurry. Can someone tell how to use DevkitPPC or give me a good tutorial on it?

Why you don't download the built one?

I recently took the latest build of it that includes all fixes from last version (4.5.2) with latest commits to September 2, 2021. I published it here: https://gbatemp.net/download/snes9x-gx.37246/

So, the latest version of Snes9x GX by @Tantric is v4.5.2 r02-09-2021. I grabed it from its official GitHub, here: http://github.com/dborth/snes9xgx/actions

@SaulFabre

EDIT:
No I haven't implemented it, I just downloaded it from the website.

@PacBunny What thing downloaded from what website?

Ok, you are really a beginner, don't worry, everything can be learned (always persevere).

Otherwise for your question I use Notepad++ https://notepad-plus-plus.org/downloads/

Don't hesitate to look at how the code is built and to read up on it (and if you need advice I can help you), if you really like it you will learn quickly ;)

At the beginning you will make mistakes, and it's quite normal, that's how we learn ^^

No the .dol file is the compiled program, it's the source files you have to open (source code to get on Github, or in my archives for TX)

For example for the filters you have to open the files "filter.cpp/filter.h and try to see how it is done ;)

Each file corresponds to specific functionalities, it is necessary to understand them.

Hi @PacBunny

A few days ago, official Snes9x GX by @Tantric have added Scale2x filter.
It is based in code from @Tanooki16, it was successfully merged to source code by @Bladeoner.
The Scale2x filter is now integrated in Snes9x GX v4.5.2 r25-11-2021.

Download links:
Wii/Wii U vWii:
https://gbatemp.net/download/snes9x-gx.37246/
GameCube: https://gbatemp.net/download/snes9x-gx.37248/


EDIT: If you're interested in see the code used for Scale2x on Snes9x GX, here's a link with what was changed in the Scale2x commit: https://github.com/dborth/snes9xgx/commit/97dbf6caa08dfc21ffb3cfe35fe1e6488ecb3edf

Greetings ;)

Is it just the regular Scale2x or Scale2xEx?
@PacBunny
i think it's just the regular Scale2x.

Look at this quote from @Tanooki16 in the Snes9x GX thread (https://gbatemp.net/threads/snes9x-gx-4-4-0-beta-feedback-requested.521929/page-25#post-9672479):
Hi Tantic, at the request of a member, I added the Scale2x video filter (it has a good rendering while being less resource intensive than the hq2x filters).

I also took the opportunity to rename the Scanlines filter to TV Mode (correct name of this filter which is present in Snes9x)

If you are interested, I attach the modified files and a test version:

EDIT: Message edited, wrong quote.
