HD emulation mod makes “Mode 7” SNES games look like new

by Kyle Orland

Gamers of a certain age probably remember being wowed by the quick, smooth scaling and rotation effects of the Super Nintendo's much-ballyhooed "Mode 7" graphics. Looking back, though, those gamers might also notice how chunky and pixelated those background transformations could end up looking, especially when viewed on today's high-end screens.

Emulation to the rescue. A modder going by the handle DerKoun has released an "HD Mode 7" patch for the accuracy-focused SNES emulator bsnes. In their own words, the patch "performs Mode 7 transformations... at up to 4 times the horizontal and vertical resolution" of the original hardware.

The results, as you can see in the above gallery and the below YouTube video, are practically miraculous. Pieces of Mode 7 maps that used to be boxy smears of color far in the distance are now sharp, straight lines with distinct borders and distinguishable features. It's like looking at a brand-new game.

Denver-Area Schools Closed Amid Manhunt For Armed Woman Obsessed With Columbine

by James Doubek
A student leaves Columbine High School late Tuesday in Littleton, Colo. Authorities say they are looking for a woman they say presented a credible threat ahead of the 20th anniversary of the mass shooting there.

The FBI and local law enforcement warned of an "armed and dangerous" 18-year-old white woman who has an "infatuation" with the Columbine shooting.

How Often Do You Have Sex?

by Amelia Diamond

How Often Do You Have Sex?

I spoke to 20 couples, and here’s what I discovered…


Somewhere, within our understanding of human sexuality within relationships, a little voice found its way into our brain with an opinion on how often we “do it.” Suspiciously, particularly after the first few years of a relationship, that opinion is often “not enough” — especially when we measure our sex lives against that of a friend, or a fictional character, or a celebrity — and it’s usually followed by an, “Oh my god.Read more
