SCANLINE SCREENSHOT THREAD. BECAUSE 240p IS ALL THE P'S I NEED. (56k warning)

Algebraic! Mathematical!

Got a pack of strips in today to fix the corner geometry/convergence on my Blast City. They worked great! Very easy to install and made things look 3x better! Not a process that I look forward to doing again though,lots of trial and error,getting things very close,then changing something else only to start over. Think of linearity on a PVM only instead of doing it digitally in a menu you are doing it by hand with a piece of cardboard right next to a hot anode cap!

How are you finding the controller?

Sorry for the late reply. I work the late shift and am getting ready to do it all over again in just a bit ^_^;

I REALLY like it. It handles quite well, the analog part is a marked improvement over the original! The D-pad feels good too, granted Goemon is the only game I’ve tested it with so far! I tried Mario 64, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, F-Zero X and Turok too. It’s been a while since I played this console, so needless to say, I was a but rusty with some of them. I need to bring out my regular controller and try a few back and forth sessions just to be sure. But I don’t think you’ll go wrong getting this controller.

I bought the Funtastic Red variant, and if you remember the early ones had that problem where the stick and the L button would overlap. They must have fixed it since, as this doesn’t happen on this controller!

Received yesterday HDMI scanline generator, here’s some interesting results (PS4 Pro, Samsung LED model UE40J5120AU)

Really interesting! Can you tell us more about the unit?

I bought it from ebay. It’s an no name hdmi scanline generator with individual RGB knobs, Vsync switch (doesn’t work at all), 2:1 & 4:3 aspect button (doesn’t do anything). Odd / Even switch for scanlines (again, doesn’t do anything), width switch and 5v 1a power micro usb in.

With RGB knobs you control level of scanlines (odd/ even). For authentic picture RGB knobs must be on zero, at least, it worked for me. But anyway, CRT is still wins for me. I bought this gadget for PS4 games that doesn’t have any scanline shaders.

I couldn’t figure out what you meant by HDMJ, but is that really 920p being output on your panel?

I’m currently running a 1080p set, so even with the ossc I still get moir patterns and it’s pretty annoying.

Sorry, that should have been HDMI.
Yep, that really was 720p. The Framemeister can’t output 4k so it takes the 480p from the HDMI box and ups that to 720p. The TV the ups the 720p to 4k since 720p to 4k is pretty straight forward.

If you are interested I can shoot some video direct from the TV at 60fps to give you an idea of quality.

Does the xrgb have the ability to directly linedouble 480 in a 1080 window? I know 720 looks good, but it’s not a true multiple and I’d like to see if the unit is capable of doing so.

That’s a good question. I have an XRGB and still don’t know how to use it. :sweat:

It can certainly upscale 480p to 1080p. I’m not sure if it’s a clean line double though.

Sold mine a couple of years back but pretty sure you just press x2 on the remote, pic in case you have not bought an overlay for yours.

Good basic settings for 240p /480i are in the junker wiki, lots of good info.

I don’t think so. I never use 1080p mode because scan lines look rubbish in 1080p.
Here’s another 720p image upped to 4K. This is from the Dreamcast.
