Queijo Shader Preset

This shader preset is designed for RetroArch and attempts to enhance and improvise visual attributes. It is recommended for old games with dithering, lots of “squares” and pixels, low resolution 2D games, for any console, arcade and very old handheld, era 8 bit, 16 bit and 32 bit Era (2D games only). Focus on transparencies, dithering for gradients, preservation of strokes and scratches, almost perfect edges and contours, synchronized flicking for digital TVs, etc.

EDIT: problem resolved.

Updated: New presets; New variants; API Vulkan and OpenGL (both, majority); Optimized

Note: I can’t edit my text from my first comment, from the topic I opened here, just to change the download link. I didn’t know that the forum has a comment editing limit. Anyone feel free to comment or recommend something, please.

Looks nice! CRT shaders are obviously very popular here, so it’s nice to see some smoothing presets for a change. How is it on pre-rendered CG sprites, like Donkey Kong Country?

Thanks. Yes, it looks good in pre-rendered games. I also use crt shader in the presets, but I leave the scarlines or phosphor layout fine and discreet (except for the “standard” preset, which is very visible).
