Why give the function to do High Quality Filtering X2 or other filter settings when it lags most games on specific consoles like the Wii? It seems like a odd choice to have that functionality available when you really can't do anything with it because of that issue. Unless someone out there has magically fixed the issue..I have not seen it. I think the function makes the games look damn amazing (Mega Man 7 looked really cleaned up), but the slowdown is the huge glaring flaw unfortunately.
Was that setting really only meant for Wii-U or other consoles? Just seems so odd.
Hmm...this has given me something to think about (HQ settings for Snes9x on the Wii), as I LOVE using the best possible settings for the emulator on my PC (which is a reasonably powerful rig).
Our Wii is currently still 'stock', but I have everything necessary to add emulation to it (seeing as how Nintendo won't be updating the firmware again), but perhaps, instead of adding Snes9x for it, I should just stick to some of the lesser demanding emulators, such as Nestopia/UE or FCUEx, and some TG and Genesis emulators.
Then whenever Nintendo decides to stop updating the Wii U, perhaps add Snes emulation to that.
Snes9x has become my 'go to' emulator for Nintendo's 16-bit console, and I can't see myself trying to load up something else (like my former one ZSnes) on there...not even really sure if that is possible.
At any rate, perhaps my soon-to-be emulated consoles on Wii should stick to 8-bit emulation, with maybe a not-so-demanding Sega Genesis on there.........UNLESS, Snes9x games still look decent enough even WITHOUT the HQ filters?
Our Wii is connected to a 1080p 52 inch screen (via component cables from the Wii), so raw pixels would probably look downright ugly on it.....
