youtube the "remember 1998" or "remember insert year"...
fantastic Blade Runner dev discussion/making of video.
Something for the 3Dfx fans!
this was actually fucking great, ta for sharing!
They're do quite a few, and their quality is rising.
This is the coolest thing I saw this week:
This man's happiness is infectious.
Yeah watched a couple of the other videos on the channel yesterday, mostly good.
DRM, Troll level: expert
DCHDMI on DF Retro.
this is the mod dreams are made of.
I'm almost interested to do this just got get proper 640x480 VGA out of my Dreamcast via a DAC.
The DC's native analogue "VGA" is a really odd mode (not standard VGA at all), and results in all sorts of issues when trying to make it work on certain monitors.
(Although not really tempted by the price, which is a fair price, but not one I want to spend just yet when I still have VGA monitors lying around).
Wow, this is definitely for pixel perfectionists, I preferred the 'pound' PQ out of all of them the colour/tone/intensity was the best match for CRT to my eye (see 9:58) Muddy, but beats jaggy for me
Pound colour was definitely way off. Watching that footage, the DCHDMI colour is bang on the money for me (my laptop screen and Dreamcast CRT are both calibrated with the same ~$1200 colour probe).
Colour matching by eye to a CRT is only as good as the CRT you're matching too. Blur, smoothing, etc is all subjective. But colour accuracy is definitely measurable.
Came across as an ad.
As was said in the clip, depends on the screen being used. My main retro LCD doesnt have HDMI. I have noticed a difference between the 2 VGA boxes/cables I have.
I need to test my two DC VGA solutions (1x box, 1x all-in-one-cable) side by side. I've never bothered too in the past.
The Box I have is third party, but it's quite good quality. All the same, people rave about the official Sega box, and honesty there's not a lot that you can improve other than the 220uF DC coupling caps on the RGB lines. Assuming a third party uses shitty or out of spec caps, that's about the worst that could happen (and you could mod them with some good quality Japanese caps if you wanted to). Maybe there's some better shielding in the official Sega unit, but that's unlikely at such short distances inside the box itself, and the rest is all running down high quality shielded VGA cable.
I'd love to do a real double-blind test on this stuff (or better yet, 240p test suite on an oscilloscope).
"The Retro Future"
Several reasons why I like this channel quite a bit
* He fixes a lot of stuff, often badly damaged and destined for the tip, so it gets preserved
* His fixes and mods aren't often revolutionary nor complex. It's not Voultar-level savant-soldering here. Most of what he does is beginner to intermediate level (often just cleaning stuff up to get it going again), and serves as a great intro/tutorial for people wanting to try their hand at repairs by practising on eBay junk.
* It's nice to see younger folk taking an interest in old hardware (yeah yeah I'm an old man)
Footage of the Mortal Kombat digital captures on the live actors. Even though i always knew it was digitized actors there is something magical about seeing them act out the movements
!!! yes - be sure to set your subs to eng-japanese translation.
Ah yes, saw this pop up the other day. I mentioned M2 in the "Sega Megadrive Mini" thread, as they're now the developer behind the real mini console (not the ATGames shit consoles), which is great news.
And this particular video is enormous - 1 hour of final content! That must have been a huge amount of raw material, travel, and everything else from the MLIG team. Amazing to see that scale of output come from a YouTube channel. I hope there's plenty more to come from this team, of this scale.
