Mine is hq2x in combination with the Direct3D render engine. The hq2x filter amplifies the screen without blurring, and the Direct3D smooths the image out so it appears less harsh on my screen.

AdvanceMame 2x offers an excellent quality/performance tradeoff...

Normal of course, I never run VBA fullscreen so I don't need a filter.

1280x1024x32 - I'd post a shot but it'd mess the forum layout and not please the dial-up posse :P

I personally do not like filters--for any system. They just make it look fake. All I prefer is Vsync or Triple Buffering. And I'm with PsyMan- I run ROMs in windowed mode anyway.

Haven't tried all of them, but I personally like Super 2xSai

Personally, I use a combo of:
-TV Mode
-Smart Motion blur.

To me having both of those on gives it a look similar to the GBA LCD screen. Though it is filtering, it makes the games look more authentic, though 2x or 3x zoom work best rather than fullscreen.

Unfortunately as of late the motion blur with that mode is not working correctly, possibly due to the Catalyst 4.6 drivers.

Try it out.

I don't like special filter's screen much.
But I use Simple 2x filter, so it's faster than Normal on my machine.
