Re: Use custom shaders on windows??

The SDLMame and SDLMess versions support GLSL shaders. The regular Windows binary supports the HLSL feature only. The SDL builds are mostly used on Linux/Mac platforms, but the shaders work fine in SDLMame/SDLMess for Windows (or they did the last time I tried them...).

There are basic point and bilinear filters floating around the message boards. Also, cgwg has an excellent CRT shader that gets used in a bunch of emulators (bsnes, retroarch, etc). Some versions are available for MAME/MESS. There are a couple threads on another board where SDLMame/SDLMess gets discussed more often.

Look here:

It's easy to compile the SDL versions of MAME/MESS for windows, but not as easy to find binaries online.

Maybe these binaries work ok? But I don't see the "shader" folder with the basic shaders in it.

Here is a guide (not for windows but it doesn't matter), but it looks like they have the shader files you'll need. Either to use, or to to look at while you write you own shader.

Hope this helps.
