Anti-aliased Graphics

I have noticed on my new pc, when I use winfellow all my graphics are anti-aliased. Is this a new feature or is it my graphics card?

No, it is not a new feature of your graphics card. Currently WinFellow performs this anti-aliasing. I already talked about it with other team members, and we have decided to change this.

Thanks for informing me
How about a tick box in the config to turn this feature on or off?

That would be possible. The plan is to make it pixel exact, without any anti-aliasing. Something for the future.

Just worked out how to turn it on or off.

How to turn it off.
Turn 2x vertical and 2x horizontal under pixel scaling off and set the screen res to 320x240 Full screen.

How to turn it on.
Turn 2x vertical and 2x horizontal under pixel scaling on and set the screen res to 800x600 Full screen.

The strange thing is it never Anti-aliased my Graphics on my old ATI 3D RAGE PRO 8MB card but does on my new computer with the ATI 128 ULTRA 32MB card.

I always play in a window without 2x neither horizontal nor vertical. And I have to say the only place I have troubles is in text adventure games where the horizontal isn't wide enough and the text gets mutilated.

WinFellow indeed aliases the emulation window. Plans are to make it pixel exact and this would fix the pixel drop problems. Stay tuned

I hope you will not permanently disable it Worfje, It's useful sometimes.

At least I prefer it to the sharp pixels but I admit it's not that pretty. I would definetely prefer some other method that can deal with pixels like interpolation and something like 2xsai mode Gens has.

Old A500 titles are mostly ok with their blocky graphics but when I play Breathless or some other 3d game I prefer better looking graphics no matter how they differ from the original. Or when I play some other game which I know well, I prefer not to see the pixels anymore since I already know what the original gfx looks like and don't want to see pixels anymore.

I would wish Amiga had a better resolution from the beginning. I thought guys in IK+ had mustaches for a long time because of the low resolution

Please DO NOT disable anti-aliasing in fellow!

I think it is a great feature!
The majority of games looks waaay better than with WinUAE just because of it!
I really like it.
If you like, please add an option to enable/disable it.
But for me it is perfect the way it is now.

YES! YES! More support !!! We're growing stronger LOL

Today I discovered a blending mode named "Scanlined %75 2xSAI" on the neo-geo/Capcom emulator named Kawaks. This is the best solution for low res gfx I have seen yet. Just my opinion.

Antialiased graphics is a really good idea I'd say. Maybe it won't be pixel perfect, but if you look at for example TVs (which I still think many used to play the games on) it was somewhat smeared out which made it look smoother than if it was on a PC monitor. The anti aliasing should do a bit for this.
