    I know this one from experience, after seeing an extensive video comparing the various versions of Prince of Persia, and the Amstrad CPC-version was being played with scanlines.

    People may shit all over the Amstrad for various reasons, but it came with its own damn monitor and it didn't have scanlines in it!

    Great point about PVMs, I had one pretty decent CRT 14" tv, two 14" video monitors (CM8833 and 1084s), 14" Microvitec M1438 and pretty (or even very) good 19" CRT, and I don't remember any of them having nearly as noticeable scanlines as those "scanline emulators" tend to have. It also greatly depended on which output you used, many of the older consoles, such as NES had either just RF or composite, which both are garbage. Many used composite on even other machines which supported better ouputs, like S-Video or RGB, which looks much better than composite. C64 had S-video output, and it looks great on video monitor or television which supports it, and I remember using RGB on my Amiga, looked pretty damn good.

    I'd welcome shader/filter for emulated games which emulates the look of the CRT tv/monitor without having very noticeable scanlines, as even very good video monitors and CRT monitors did have that "blurring" effect on old games. I still kick myself for getting rid of that 19" monitor even though it was wore down as fuck.

    I never understood all these scanline crap. I don't remember TVs of PC monitors having them (or at least being noticeable)

    The talk itself is over 6 years old but they re-uploaded this on their Youtube channel:



    Fun talk. Things like how two games originated from different aspects of D&D, how they differently approached the concept of 3D space, etc. It would have been cooler if there was Ultima Underworld (it's mentioned in the talk) too, but I guess it's less iconic.

    You can pick out some very faint scanlines on the last picture if you look closely. But you wouldn't see those from a normal viewing distance.

    Also, it won't look quite that blurry when viewed through your eyes instead of a camera. Unless on a shitty TV or output.
    And scanlines on a monitor? Nah.

    Why do people use them, though... well, besides those that do it out of hipsterism, it's also I guess because it gives some texture to the image. Arguably it can make SOME games look better.
    Claiming that applying these filters is playing them as they were originally played is just stupid bullshit, though.

    PC monitors were much higher res than your standard TV but they still had scanlines. You don't remember scanlines because you were not looking at picture from 10cm away.

    Needs to be reposted every time someone posts a screenshot with scanlines in the screenshot thread.
