Hercules blend patch

Postby Fenix77 » Sun 10 Sep, 2017 5:34 am

Hello everybody.

I want to ask if it's possible to implement "The hercules blend patch" for the Hercules Graphics Card. The patch was developed by ripsaw8080 for dosbox back in 2010.
This patch stretch the image removing the vertical lines and makes the image closer to the real monitor (i had one back in early '90). the diff file exist, but the images are no longer avaiable. (This does not use any Pixel shader and i belive it can be implemented like the amber/green phospor was.)

Sadly this patch was merged only in Daum versions of dosbox, which is no longer under development.
Here is the link http://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=25987&p=214244&hilit=hercules+blend+patch#p214244. And the diff files is still there.
(I cannot upload the diff file because i reached the upload limit, sorry!)
