For what it's worth, I acknowledge the usefulness of what you posted. As the person who wrote the HLSL (and subsequently BGFX-based) backends for MAME, I can absolutely appreciate that what looks good, and gives a nice nostalgic feel, is rarely ever 100% accurate to real life. And I rather designed the system with that in mind, so I disagree with anikom coming down on you like a ton of bricks.

Having said that, I'd like to ask for some understanding on anikom's behalf. Only 5-10 years ago, I most likely would have been That Person, coming down on you with full force for simply wanting to have a result that looks good. I don't know how old anikom is, but it's clear that they share a passion for preserving digital history, and it may simply be that age has not yet tempered his or her internal fire yet.

I think we live in a world where both perceptually-pleasant and accurate emulation can coexist. It would warm my heart for both of you to abandon any hard feelings and instead share in the holiday feeling of bonhommie. Let's join hands and move into the retro-preserving future together.
