Thanks guys :)

ClessxAlghazanth, regarding the 2 dx9 filters, they're pretty much the same if you disable all the features and use no filter (point filtering, which should be renamed)  So then it's just down to the features: Alt. has the SoftFX filters and Experimental has Scanlines & the nice Cubic filtering option.
Basically it comes down to, if you don't use filters then just use the blitter that works best with your system.

best regards,

Heads up for the kind answer , dink  :wink: I use no filters (point filter) and been using alt. for all the time so sticking with it  :cool:

Thanks for all the great work as usual ;p

Hi guys,
ported the Hardware FX Shaders from Fightcade (by JordiRos / shine)
They are available under the Alt blitter's options under HardFX.
The attached shaders zip will need to be unzipped into fbneo's support subdirectory!
Some need atleast window of 3x size to work properly(!)
A decent (not onboard) video card is recommended for performance
NOTE: Zoom (click) the images to see each effect :)

best regards,

FWIW, those shaders look quite similar to the ones from https://github.com/libretro/common-shaders, so anybody interested could probably port more shaders to FBNeo

barbudreadmon thanks, I'm not familiar enough with this language yet to be able to port them - I'm learning about it though!

Some happenings:

Input Replay - Start Paused function - starts playback of input recording @ frame 0, to make easier for recording every single frame of video, etc.

Yes, they sure are nice! :)
They'll be in the next release, but, you don't have to wait for it - just grab the latest exe from github @ the usual place, and the shaders zip file from my message a few posts ago & unzip it under support so it creates a shaders subdirectory & files.

thanks for the nice words, ClessxAlghazanth!
hope you find a new game to add to your favorites list :)
Rabio Lepus has some really nice and unique bosses, just as another favorite of mine - Mahou Daisakusen aka Sorcer Striker - it has a boss rush at the end!
TIP: the final boss is an illusion, get behind him and shoot to reveal the real final boss.

Here's a small bit news:

XAudio2 plugin: more closely match the volumes of DirectSound

fixed: After adding the Audio Volume menu a few weeks back, caused a bug in the Alt+ / Alt- keys which would make ugly popping/clicks when change the volume with them. oops!

Impl'd a nice little feature for the Midway SoundsGood soundboard: used in Rampage, Star Guards and Power Drive: mutes audio until game starts producing sounds, as these games have a very noisy (poppy/clicky) bootup.

finalizer got a proper dump of the audio cpu program from the konami custom cpu, thanks hap and [anonymous] for making this happen

Big thanks: iq_132, gab75, barbudreadmon, JacKc, kev, all fans of fbneo! :)

best regards,

Added The Dice Game! on IREM m90 hw, big thanks to Jonas Jago for dumping and Arcadez for letting me know about it :)
Appears to be a nice little action-puzzler type game, where you can smash enemies with dice and also line up the dice to eliminate them from the field.

https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/7b947eb7f0287f14f3f847b2686da7b7e396fdcd
That game is too fresh, it was added to MAME right after it was added to FBNeo. I believe arcadeitalia only updates its database at mame releases.
