cgwg wrote the first decent crt shader MAME ever had for the older glsl system. Also his shader is very common in other emulators. Retroarch, Dosbox, etc all have multiple versions of crt-geom.

It's not the fastest shader around anymore, but it's still a million times faster than hlsl. And it's default settings always look good, if a little dimmer than some people like.

You can read a long thread about this stuff over here:
