DerKoun on Reddit has put together a mod for byuu's bsnes emulator that lets it render Mode7 games at HD resolutions. This is pretty wild.
I recommend checking out the comparison gallery here. Pilotwings in particular is nuts:Download (Windows binary and changed source files):
This is, of course, offered as-is.
If anyone could provide binaries for Mac, Linux or anything else it would be much appreciated.
This is a mod of bsnes 107.1 by byuu (high-level emulation for co-processors came right on time for this).
It performs Mode 7 transformations (incl. HDMA) at up to 4 times the horizontal and vertical resolution.
Optionally, for games with pseudo 3D perspectives, some limitations of the integer math used by the SNES can be avoided by more aggressive averaging.
This can be disabled in Settings/Emulator/Experimental, where you can also change the scale or disable this feature.
For best performance try different output modes in Settings/Driver/Video. (For me Direct3D performs best.)
