Scanline alpha. Shadow Mask Alpha will juice it a little more, but I hate the look. I prefer just setting Scanline Alpha to '1'. I notice JohnIV's is .73, and that looks good, too. The rest (like the pincushion effect) I'd shit-can.
With the above setting, it apparently defaults the prescale to '2'. '3' makes it real sharp. I'm of course using a 27" multisync CRT here at only 1024x768, so '3' makes it look just like when the monitor is displaying games at their native resolutions.
And, I have an anomaly: with current MAME and a fresh mame.ini, if I change anything in mame.ini>HLSL, the game won't load and I get 'can't load D3D object'. If I load the game via MAMEPLUS+GUI, there's no 'pre' error, and the effect works - but I get some kind of access violation error after *exiting* the game. WEIRD.
Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
