Feature Request - xBRZ

Description

Version: 2.2.0git from 4/4/2020 (scummvm -v returns nothing from command prompt)

ScummVM already has a few scalers as rendering options. xBRZ is arguably the nicest upscaler for 2D sprites and low-res pixelated games.

I've seen some options in the forums to use Reshade. The ported shader for Reshade does not look very good at all.

It also seems a few others have been obnoxious in their requests for this in the past. I have no control over that, but I'm hoping that does not dissuade someone from considering this feature in the future.

Unfortunately, the problem with xBRZ implementation is that it is very slow, thus they employ multithreading which will be not possible for ScummVM.

The only feasible option is when we finally add shader-based scalers, then there are several xBRZ implementations that will use your video card.

Closing this.
