Draco's Requital

Created by MarvelousSagacity
Added April 11, 2018
Shader used: ReShade
Preset description:
This preset “Draco’s Requital” is centered around the CRT effect, with scan-lines to improve uniformity of sprites and backgrounds in both Shadow over Mystara & Tower of Doom; yet there is more to this preset than just CRT. It has better color, also color has been corrected in some stages to have better realism & depth; light and dark sources have been brought out more, dungeons and caves result in increased ambiance, so do outdoor areas with shadows such as forests. Last but not least there is a glass like effect given to the preset to increase immersion, its more noticeable if the screen is part or nearly all black. I am not saying it is the same experience to playing in an arcade, but its more than likely close as one can get while playing at home, unless one owns this game’s original arcade cabinet, ha; it also begs the question when developers put this game package together, why were more practical options not available to visually simulate an arcade experience? At least they tried with some options available, sill they come off as tepid at best; none of the game’s filter options were used when constructing “Draco’s Requital”. I go further to say I do not recommend using them with this preset. Likewise the preset was built around the “Normal” view. I estimate it will work with other views the game offers, just extending that information on the off chance it it does not. Tower of Doom and Shadow over Mystara arrived in 1993 and 1996, the point of the time reference being the resolution of TV then was usually 480p (4:3 aspect ratio). I made this preset around 720p, not too much higher than 480p. 720p I found was the best higher resolution without resulting in the ratio of sprites becoming skewed and to a degree fairly deformed. It is a thing to remember when playing older games. The suggested resolution setting is not a prerequisite, just personally what I found best playing, to each their own. Shadow over Mystara & Tower of Doom are still a blast to play, just as much when I first played them in the early to mid nineties. To others who like this game, its genre, or the Dungeons & Dragons series, I hope one gets enjoyment of this preset, if not, that’s fine too. Take care. Peace out & Farewell.
