Making handheld consoles look nice

Recommended Posts

I'm finally building a collection of emulated handheld consoles (GB, GBA, DS, 3DS and PSP) and I was wondering if you have some recommendations on how to make those games look nice on modern HD screens?

Thanks!

Use the handheld shader borders in Retroarch.

Thanks neil9000!

Can I get the shader without the borders though? I'm not a huge fan of borders as I find them distracting when I play.

Retroarch has lots of Handheld shaders.

Indeed! Out of this list, would you recommend some in particular?

Concerning the DS and 3DS, should I just upscale and go?

This one for example is two shaders, the gameboy one i showed in the post above, but with a LCD shader pass added to it.

Shaders by there very nature though are a personal preference thing, thats why i use the shaders with borders as i like them to look like the original handhelds. You will just have to mess around with them to find something that fits your personal wants/needs.
