Altirra 3.20 Test11 [638][witek], 2019-01-05 14:16:01

[Source: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/281825-altirra-310-released/page-13]

-Accelerated screen effects are now implemented for Direct3D 9.
-Some work to reduce border artifacts with some of the accelerated effects.
-Fixed quarter-line offset when using distortion and accelerated scanlines together.
-Fixed stripes appearing in NTSC standard artifacting due to output correction being run twice on some of the scanlines.
-Fixed debugger deferring symbol loads even after being opened because it didnt auto-switch to the "when enabled" setting properly.

The baseline requirement for accelerated effects is now any shader model 2+ capable graphics card, though performance may vary. The heaviest effect is the distortion effect (fishbowl), which on my ancient Intel 865 raises system load up by about 40%. Any reasonably modern graphics card shouldnt have a problem, though.
