I just found out about BFI by chance and it seems to look amazing but I can’t seem to get it to work properly.
First of all my system and settings:
OS: Windows 10 2009
GPU: GTX 1070
Screen: MSI Optix MAG241CR 144hz 1080p FreeSync running in G-Sync mode over DisplayPort
RA Version: 1.9.0
V-Sync in RetroArch: Off
Sync to content Refresh Rate: On
Windowed Fullscreen: Off
Menu Refresh Rate: 143.whatever decimal RA was detecting
V-Sync in Nvidia Drivers: On globally
RTSS FPS Cap: 140 globally
So if I launch a game now and turn on BFI it first just resulted in a black screen when going back to the game. I quickly figured out this can be solved by turning V-Sync back on in RA itself and then, while the game is of course darker, the motion-fluidity is unbelievable.
It doesn’t seem to work 100% properly though, every 5-6 seconds or so it feels like the screen cuts out for a few milliseconds or so, it almost feels like a inverse flash to black so I wondered if I perhaps have any settings set wrongly?
Also is there any downside to use it for all games? So far I only tried it with the bSNES core but I assume it will work fine for PSX and N64 games too even if they run at 25/30fps? If there’s none, what’s the best way to counter the brightness loss aside from setting my monitor itself brighter?
Oh and I use the default CRT Royale shader-preset along with a custom border if it makes any difference.
Thanks for any help in advance!
