directx 9 alternate
« on: January 25, 2020, 12:43:15 AM »
hello guys,

first of all - great emulator!! my favorite actually, really!!! - it?s amazing what this emulator can do to these old games of my childhood. i love it!

Especially i used to love the directx 9 alternate mode with 4xbr semi rounded enabled. it looks best, imao...

however, since you?ve gone from fba to fbneo the directx 9 alternate mode does NOT function anymore.

please do not tell me to upgrade my directx - i?m in this scene for 20 years now... - the problem is on your side! -> i have the old fba here as well and it runs fine, fbneo does not!

so please check on that, it?s my favorite graphics mode and i?m sure i?m not alone here.

thank you and best regards from berlin
chris

Hi cglucker,
Glad you like this proggy, we put a lot of hard work into it :)

I can't think of anything that was changed for that blitter, so a little investigation work is in order. (it also works fine here, dx9 alt)
Can you tell me how it doesn't function?  What are the problem(s)?   Does the video look bad, is there an error message?  I need some more information about this problem.

best regards,
- dink

If you're referring to this one:



It works well for me, too.

Greetings.

Not really, this is really weird - we didn't change anything video related.  Does it happen if you copy the current fb exe into a new folder and try it?  Also when you get a new exe, make sure to get the gcc compiled one.

Maybe 32-bits build vs 64-bits build ?

hi dink,

okay, i tested in a new empty folder and it gives me the same result, although i noticed, that the blitter works with double and mame scale filters, but not with hq and downwards...

i can not be the only one with this problem... - can anybody please confirm that?

Make sure to get the official builds from either us:
https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo   - scroll down to find the "Work in progress builds"
or Ashura-X's site, which has a WinXP compatible exe:
http://ashura.mameworld.info/nightlybuilds/builds.html

Getting FBN exe from anyone else is not recommended.

they are up to date, the date listed on the page is when the page was made, the files are up to date though.  It's confusing, sorry about that.

Hello. I have the same problem with the DX9 alternate.
The only version that is working for me is the version d that I downloaded from the website Ashura, from the 25th of January. The Github version has the error.
