MI2/Indy4 : epx smoothing

Description

I seem to recall that in the Mac versions of MI2 and Indy4,
LucasArts included a specific smoothing algorithm, epx,
which you could you turn off to see how bad the graphics
looked in the original PC version :o)

Aaron Giles claims it was a simple 2x scaler with some
guessing algorithm. Does anyone know how to
reimplement it? It looked cool and not quite like any of the
current scalers IMHO - but then again it's been a long time
since I played MI2 on my dusty Macintosh LCII.

I found this link that explains part of it :

From what I recall, the algorythm is basically the same as
our AdvMame2X scaler.

Won't do, use one of the many choices already there :)
