Hgoda90 - Graphic Varieties

That is fine. I will update the tutorial part to be single quoted. The shader file that had fancy quotes was Duimon’s Preset file.

Not single quotes by the way. Double quotes is correct, just no upside down opening quotation marks.

I should be able to do PSP variants.

Edit: I should be able to do some of the PSP variants and not all, until the PSP shader is split between layers. The ones I will be able to do should be enough until than.

@Duimon has updated his graphics and presets so that the DS power light shows on a separate layer. Now when the [Cabinet or Cabinet Glass Layer] is changed the color of the light stays the same. This only applies to the Horizontal Shader as of right now.

There are some settings that only needs to be applied to Horizontal or Vertical. The settings that have a H only needs to be changed in the Horizontal Shader and V only needs to be changed in the Vertical Shader.

Arcade/MAME

The same settings can be applied to MAME and you will get the same color. The following must also be applied:

[Bezel & Frame]
    Saturation: 95
    Brightness: 8.80

[Device Image Layer]
    Opacity: 0

Colorize: 1 and Saturation: 200 for [Background Layer] and [Decal Layer] for all the colors except white. Remember that Arcade/MAME colors can be achieved by a simple change of the HUE OFFSET and that is it.

Sega Dreamcast

American version of the Dreamcast. Duimon’s graphic will need to be edited to add the US logo over the Japanese or European one. I simply just edited the other shader files changing the color and renamed them to Alt2. I should also note that the layers only need changing when they are not default valued at 0, 100, 100.

US Version
----------
[Bezel & Frame Color]
    Hue: 0
    Saturation: 100
    Brightness: 59.60

[Device Image Layer] & [Decal Layer]
    Hue Offset: 0
    Saturation: 200
    Brightness: 184

How to Create Graphic

  1. Download Dreamcast US logo that is transparent.
  2. Open Graphics/SEGA_Dreamcast/Dreamcast.png and logo in image editing program.
  3. Copy and paste logo onto the Dreamcast.png as layer and scale over one of the logos.
  4. Select the other layer and use Rectangle Select Tool to select around the Graphics logo.
  5. Select area above logo as Foreground Color and below as Background Color with Eyedropper.
  6. Delete the items inside the Rectangle Select Tool of Dreamcast.png.
  7. Select Gradient tool and drag straight bottom to top of Select Area.
  8. Set start color as Background Color and end color as Foreground Color.
  9. Repeat 3 - 8 for the other side
  10. Save as Dreamcast_Alt2 in Graphics/SEGA_Dreamcast
  11. Change the Parameter files BackgroundImage from Dreamcast to Dreamcast_Alt2.

Programs like Photoshop can be used to accomplish this. This is a possible way to do it and quicker and easier ways could be possible.

If anybody is wondering I won’t post the graphic I have is because it’s Duimon’s. It’s not really difficult to do this and it shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes even for beginners. I know this because I am a middle line beginner.

GB2Player

Since Duimon added GB2Player Shader, I figured why not change the color of the Gameboys. Like the GBC2Player, [Device Image Layer] controls the Gameboy on the left and [Cabinet or Cabinet Glass Layer] controls the Gameboy on the right. [Decal Layer] controls the color of the Gameboy decal and colors of the AB buttons.

GB2Player and GBC2Player with Sameboy

The GB2Player and GBC2Player shaders can be used with the Sameboy core. All that is needed is:

  1. Load a game with the Sameboy core
  2. Go to Main Menu < Subsystems < Load 2 Player Game Boy Link
  3. Pick a rom to load for Player 1
  4. Go to Load 2 Player Game Boy Link again
  5. Pick a rom to load for Player 2
  6. Go to Subsystems < Start 2 Player Game Boy Link
  7. Now you can select to Load the GB2Player shader for the games.

The steps can be used to even play two different games on each Gameboy. The only problem is that audio from only one Gameboy can be played.

The colors used with the Gameboys are the same as the Play It Loud Gameboy versions posted earlier, with some tweaks. The colors used with the Gameboy Colors are the same as the Gameboy Color variants posted earlier.

Super Nintendo Gameboy

To get a Super Nintendo Background with the new Gameboy Shader than just change the BackgroundImage line in the shader file to

BackgroundImage = "../../../Graphics/Nintendo_SNES/SNES.png".

Change the Bezel also to the default Bezel color of the Super Nintendo Shader.

Arcade Graphic + Cyber Shader

With Arcade I would recommend the Arcade Sharp PVM shader from Cyber. Just change #reference line in the Arcade shader to point to it and change the following settings:

[CRT Brightness & Gamma]
    Post CRT Brightness: 200

[CRT Screen Scaling]
    Int Scale Mode: 0

[Core Res Sampling]
    Opposite Dir Multiplier: 75-125*

*This depends on the game. Set to the value that makes the scanlines not appear as a circle.
