Nintendo sounds really upset in that page. And they're basically saying: "Screw you! You are gonna play the games we want you to, when and how we want to!"...

Thing is I don't think retro gaming would have "lived" until today at all if it weren't for emulation. And we'd be pretty much screwed if we depended on these companies to play the original games, because the official emulators mostly suck. Fortunately we do have good (and free) emulators, and there is always something new and interesting, such as the NTSC filters by blargg.

But would most players rather have NTSC filtering + scanlines, or would they rather have Scale2x in glorious 480 Pee?

Who needs glorious NTSC filtering when you have the lovely yellow composite cable to hook it up to an NTSC TV?

I you mean a yellow composite cable *from PC*, the effect isn't the same. That "TV Pass" test fails completly when running on a TV, signals from a PC.

I hate Scale2x. NTSC filtering + scanlines for me please.

?

Last I checked, outputting composite video from the PC didn't generate 240p signal. 480i is definitely not a win situation for me.

Scale2x is gross. It just makes everything blobby and distorted. If you can't stand playing a game in its original pixellated glory, maybe you should just go back to your Halo and GTA. Darned young whippersnappers.

I also very much dislike scale2x. I run fceultra at 4x (windowed, not full screen) with no special graphics filters. Pixels are part of the experience. Enjoy them. Anti-aliasing is for sissies.

It really depends on the game and the filter.

Scale2X is a poor man's scaler. Try Zelda: LttP sometime with HQ2x ... it's an amazing improvement. Now on more detailed games like DKC, yeah ... filters just make things worse.
