Damien's Amiga pack is so f'n awesome makes me wish someone would do the same for Commodore 64 but with around 10,000 games that's a daunting task.

Phew... following on from this thread / poll: DamienD's WinUAE Collection - [720x576] Old vs New Scanlines

...I've now made the necessary changes to incorporate the "new scanlines" into all "720x576" games

To be honest, I'm still indecisive whether to keep the original method or the new


Anyway, if you voted for the "new scanlines" or just want to try them out then please do the following:
  • Download the attached "Configurations_720x576_NewScanlines.rar" file.
  • Extract into "C:\WinUAE" replacing all.

I've also included the "original scanlines" configuration files just in case you want to resort back. With these you:
  • Download the attached "Configurations_720x576_OriginalScanlines.rar" file.
  • Extract into "C:\WinUAE" replacing all.

I won't add any more games to my collection for a week or so... please feel free to test / give feedback / comments in the thread: DamienD's WinUAE Collection - [720x576] Old vs New Scanlines

Oh yeah, forgot to mention...

I didn't include "Worthy.uae" in the above archives...

If you grabbed the configuration file / title / screenshot from this post and want to update to the "new scanlines" then you'll need to do the following:
  • Open "Worthy.uae" in Notepad.
  • Add in the line "gfx_filter_mask=720x576_Scanlines.png" after "gfx_api=direct3d".
  • Change the line "gfx_filter_scanlines=50" --> "gfx_filter_scanlines=0".
  • Save.

After days of playing 720x576 games with the "new scanlines" and comparing with the old method; I think I'm going to stick with the old

Ok, it's not perfect and the scanlines are uneven but I think it looks better in comparison; plus you only really notice this issue on a full screen of the same colour.

Sorry guys, was worth investigating but...

For people that liked the "new scanlines", going forward you'll just need to adjust any new 720x576 games that I add to the collection by doing the following (or manually):

Using UltraEdit:

find:
gfx_api=direct3d

replace with:
gfx_api=direct3d
gfx_filter_mask=720x576_Scanlines.png


Using Notepad++:

find:
"gfx_filter_scanlines=50" and "gfx_filter_scanlines=25"

replace with:
"gfx_filter_scanlines=0"

Update to Monkey Business using Retroplay's nicer disk:

Rightly removed the beta status since it seems to work completely.
Until an original comes out, this is the version to archive.

Changed disk name too to match as well.

That old s-s Niwa added really did "stroke my hairs against the grain", so to speak.
So, please do the following:
  • Delete the directory "C:\WinUAE\Games\Monkey Business".
  • Download / extract the attached into "C:\WinUAE".
