File - Download xBRZ v1.9

We are leaving for vacation June 6th. No updates while we're gone.
If there were updates, it wouldn't be a vacation. ;) -Randy and Deanna

xBRZ v1.9

xBRZ: "Scale by rules" - a high quality image upscaling filter for various emulators.

xBRZ is a high-quality image upscaling filter for creating beautiful HD representations from low-resolution images.

Reference implementations for common emulators can be found in the download section:
● DOSBox
● ePSXe
● ScummVM
● Snes9x
● Kega Fusion

  • rule set preserving small image features
  • highly optimized performance
  • alpha channel support
  • multithreading support
  • 64-bit architecture support
  • support processing image slices

This download is for the DOSBox version. All other download assets are below:
Simply copy Dosbox+xBRZ.exe into your DOSbox directory and start it!

Start ScummVM, go to Options and select Graphics Mode "OpenGL + xBRZ scaler".


Kega Fusion:
Start Kega Fusion, go to Video -> Render Plugin and select the xBRZ scaler.
Also turn on the bilinear filter: Video -> Filtered

Install P.E.Op.S. Soft GPU 1.18 with support for xBRZ
1. copy the plugin folder and included files into the ePSXe installation directory
2. Start ePSXe, configure "P.E.Op.S. Soft Driver" and select xBRZ for "stretching"

Just start HqMame.exe.

5xBRZ scaling filter and video mode "ddraw" are active by default which give the best visual respresentation.
For a more conservative setting start with: HqMAME.exe -video gdi -scaler 4xbrz

New command line option:

hqmame -scaler <name>

2xbrz = Scale by Rules, Zenju mod, factor 2
3xbrz = Scale by Rules, Zenju mod, factor 3
4xbrz = Scale by Rules, Zenju mod, factor 4
5xbrz = Scale by Rules, Zenju mod, factor 5 (default)
6xbrz = Scale by Rules, Zenju mod, factor 6

hq2x = High quality scaler, factor 2
hq3x = High quality scaler, factor 3
hq4x = High quality scaler, factor 4

none = no scaling

Note: if the stretched resolution is higher than your display resolution you may see graphics artifacts for
video mode "gdi". To avoid this use video mode "ddraw", e.g. HqMAME.exe -video ddraw -scaler 5xbrz

Start Snes9x, go to menu -> Video -> Display Configuration and select xBRZ for "Output Image Processing"

Test the xBRZ scaler with your own images and compare against other scalers with the "Scaler Test" tool.
