    CRT/Retro Emulation

    Hey guys, I don't know a lot about shaders, but I was wondering if anyone would be willing to have a stab at creating a retro/CRT/SNES/old-school screen emulation using shaders (unless there is a better way).

    This is the effect I'm talking about:

    The RGB channels are all spread out and there are also scanlines.

    More specifically, this recent game made with GameMaker has a cool effect that I really like, which is pretty much the same:

    Thanks!

    Mashed this together really quickly with code from the Internet, hope it works somehow for you.

    Re: CRT/Retro Emulation

    Looks pretty good, does it look even better when you run it at something like fullscreen?

    Nice effect

    By the way i noticed 'phase' has a input but it currently does nothing in the effects code.

    Looki, thanks a TON! That CRT shader looks fantastic! It really takes me back to my days in the arcades.
