Weird text glitches

Recommended Posts

I'm currently playing MegaMan Battle Network 1 and the text for this game is really weird. The font they used isn't helping, because they picked a font that have some letters looking like they're not all the way attached, like a P, N, or t. There are also weird "shadows' behind all of the letters but it's most notable on W's or exclamation points... any reason for this or is this how it always was and I'm just mis-remembering? Because it's present in MMBN2, but the rest of the games don't have that weird shadow effect to them anymore. Picture of the problem: http://imgur.com/a/6bAy6 http://imgur.com/a/MZDPo (MegaMan Battle Network 3 showing no shadows behind text)


I am playing with default graphics settings but am running it off OpenGL. The title screens of all the games have this problem as well with the text. Here's an example from Mega Man Battle Network 5 showing this shadow text glitch, it just doesn't look right and looks like it's overlapping the letters on the bottom. http://imgur.com/a/MCxLR if there is a filter to accurately display the quality of a GBA game, could anyone tell me what it is? Maybe it's just VBA-M, I have no idea :/


This glitch is also present for Pokemon Emerald as well (letters overlapping on title screen and the screen before it) I'm thinking it's just VBA-M now but I'm still so perplexed. http://imgur.com/a/uK2rJ http://imgur.com/a/THcPC Is there even a filter in VBA-M that displays an accurate, pixel perfect quality so this stuff doesn't happen?
