Notice the two screenshots, the original is 640 and the other is stretch larger than 640, which is close to 1024. Why the larger screenshot, looks a bit pixelated and unsmooth?

Does 0.1.6.7 work? Might have to release a new combat 4.6.1 soon with the fixed version..
Yes, 1.6.7 works good with win7.

cool

Which of those configs should I put it in? ddraw.ini or war2_ddraw.ini? Did you make the config using Visual Studio? Which ddraw file should I use?

Don't think I said anything about any ini files or ddraw files in my reply (nor is anything written about it in the link i posted!)

That's exactly what I explained you in my reply

Ok, I have tried the shader. It looks bit like CRT. But I like to it to have 1024 x 768 pixel like the CRT monitor size in full screen mode. I can have it 1024 in Window mode though.

When I try to take screenshot of it in full screen, and I paste it into image editor, it shows black screen, so I cannot show the full screen screenshot here.

It does show 1024 when I first start the game, but when I switch between Window and full screen mode, it switches back to 640, in full screen. The only way to get 1024 in full screen is when first starting the game.

Yeah Alt+Enter doesn't remember upscaling with custom width/height at the moment

Oh right, battle.net is also using the Alt+Enter code... Anyways, I attached a fixed version for your special usecase

Ok, now it shows 1024 in full screen, also whenever I return from Battle.net. How to edit the source code of ddraw.dll? Is there any particular software to view it?

Cool!

You can use visual studio community edition which is free https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/vs/community/

Do you prefer desktop or laptop for this kind of editing stuff?

I was wondering if there is CRT theme for whole Windows 10 itself. I mean Windows 10 displayed in CRT...

Is there any way to use the CRT shaders in DOSBox?

Just made a experimental version that fixes the laggy cursor (input lag) on windows 8 / 10


Note: OBS doesn't support this version

Here another experimental version of the other ddraw (cnc-ddraw) that also fixes the laggy cursor on win 8/10.

This version also adds support for the OBS "Game Capture" capture source so livestreaming without having to play with a disadvantage is now possible as well!
