    Hi, I want to play ps1 games on my pc but I don't want enchanced grapichs so I use pSX or xebra.
    The problem is that the graphics looks worst that the original on both emulators.

    There is a video on youtube that the a guy playing resident evil 2 on pSX and the graphics looks like the original


    Is the anything that I can do so graphics looks like the original?
    I want to avoid using the epsxe or pcsx

    my pc is
    cpu: core i5 4440
    gpu: onboard intel hd 4600
    ram: 8gb
    ssd: 120gb
    monitor: lg flatron w2243s

    Its because of your monitor, the way it stretches the image to acomodate it, if you would be using a crt monitor it would look a lot closser to the original.

    Well, also, Xebra uses software rendering, graphics aren't filtered either.

    the youtube video is recorded at native emulator resolution, yeah and bilinear filtering should work by upsize native res :( not by making whole screen blurry.

    As far as i see it this are your options:

    1. switching to pcsx or ePSXe to use pete's opengl2 plugin and learn about custom shaders (then combine those with scanlines, although old here is a guide to get you started).
    2. or enhancing the graphics with one of the above mentioned emulators.
    3. If you want to stick to pSX then you have no choice but to get a CRT Monitor , but even with that i wouldn't advice getting one that is to big, if you want decent quality while keeping the original feel for your PS1 games using an emulator you probably shouldn't get one over 15".


    Last i would like to mention that for 2D games i would recommend actually using ePSXe and peops software plugin, with the right settings and filters games with it look gorgeous and unlike 3D games they don't show their age.

    Sorry for the late response but what you need to do is to enable GPU upscaling in your Graphics card control panel (in my case NVIDIA) and set it to maintain the aspect ratio. From now on the image will be upscaled to your native desktop resolution making it look much more sharp.
