Are PAL virtual games really 50Hz? with borders?
« on: December 10, 2006, 03:21:59 AM »
Surely not! - can anyone post some screen grabs? Turbo grafx games were never really `officially` released in Europe (at least not properly) - so why force em to 50Hz nastiness?? Gawd :(

boo hoo - can anyone confirm this?

Apparently a few are OK but most are in crap-o-vision. Boo.  [-(

ah yes - i just found a site that explained how snes games and so on are 50hz (bordered) - but turbografx ones are not. Shame the emulator is blurring things a bit though...

I friend has a wii hooked up to a samsung telly with component cables, and even thats a bit blurry - looks like the image is being forcibly upscaled to the higher full res of the telly. pixels are not sharp like when you use scart rgb on a normal crt telly.

GameCentral on C4 teletext has been urging people to write to Nintendo and complain about the 50z crap they are pulling on us. I think every letter should have the footnote 'I will now make sure I download all the ROMs of the Virtual Console games for free until you give us proper emulation'.
