My girlfriend likes o play castlevania and Dr Mario on NES on my HT. At one point we had an NES, a Genesis with CD, a N64 and PS2 on one Setup but thiswas before I had a video switching reciever so i took up TOO many inputs
Originally posted by LewisD You might as well just load emulators on your X-Box to save space in your HT...
It would be a much better idea to get a HTPC to do this unless the Xbox can use advanced filters like Super 2xSai and scale to 1080i. Plus you're not stuck with the horrid selection of Xbox controllers.
What do you mean?? Are there emulators out there that scale to 1080???
How good does it look?? I have used Snes9x with great results but that's about as far as I go with emulators. I'm a collector and like having the original games but if I could have R-Type in 1080 I'd shyt myself..
As long as the emulator can detect available window's resolution, and 1920x1080 (or even 1280x720) is one of them, then it is playable. The lastest version of Snes9x does have this ability, but when I tried it last, it was very unstable. I've had better luck with MAME, ePSX and Project64 at 1080i. Zsnes unfortunately does not let you select custom resolutions, as far as I know. So for now SNES emulation is stuck at 480p for me, still looks great with the sprite filtering though.
Super 2xSai or regular 2xSai is a sprite averaging technique that sharpens 2d images dramtically. It's much more than a blur and really improves the resolution of the sprites.
