:mrgreen:

The great advancements in RA's CRT shaders and input lag is what made me decide to just emulate. Been doing it off and on for years, but i think with this last CRT dying it's time to put my non HDMI consoles on the self :/ heh

Check this out: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fnNEy0_JwOs

DerKoun made a mod for bsnes that renders mode 7 layers at 4x the original resolution, and it makes playing games that heavily use mode 7 much more of a pleasure in HD. I've heard that this mod will be incorporated into the official build of bsnes (it might have already been at the time of this posting).

That's pretty cool but i prefer shaders that make games look closer to high end CRTs.

I use easymode the most.. It isn't my favorite, but its the best one that is also fairly light on resources (IMO)

If don't mind me asking, where did you get it and pricing range?

I saved a few PCs from work for this over the years for this but they got surpassed quickly. I am always eyeing refurb small machines on PC Liquidations. The Windows OS license is also a barrier for me on an emu box versus Android or Linux.

What were you looking for on video out? Such as display port, DVI, HDMI?

eBay when i am looking for something specific. In this case it was a tiny/micro PC with an Intel GPU HD 630/UHD 630. Only one, within my price range, that can handle Dolphin "well." Lower ones can do it but i wanted some headroom. I didn't want to buy something big enough to put a half height GPU in. Here's a 4570T doing some gamecube on its iGPU https://youtu.be/mblABT4eOfI

I just troll eBay for weeks until i find one at the price i want to pay from a seller with good feedback. I just saved a few searches (of all the lower power cpus that had those GPUs) and .. searched em .. 3 or 4 time a day.. and never gave up! lol

I doubt your PCs are "surpassed." People often think they are, but more often than not, they are wrong. Even a 2nd Gen i5/7 can be quite useful. Heck i used an e8400 dual core as my main PC up until about 3 years ago! My current "gaming" PC is still a 6600k. Both of my HTPCs are i5-3570S' with no GPUs. The 3570S is quite a capable CPU that can handle 1080p HEVC and any emulation up to n64/PS1 (with some light CRT shaders). I've even played light Wii (NSMB at 1x res) and a few PS2 games on them (Metal Slug 6). Any everyday task is just as snappy as my 6600K.

I was looking for either DP or HDMI.. The one i got has both :)

It only has a 128GB M2 SSD so i am probably going to add a $40CAD 2.5in SSD just for ROMs/ISOs.

I saw in the MISTer thread that you bought yourself a micro form factor PC. What model did you get? Can we see some pics? I like those little PCs a lot.
