So what's the best scaler to get nowadays? Last time I looked at the market, there was the Framemeister, the OSSC, or various vintage linedoublers.
I have the OSSC currently, but it's not fully compatible with my plasma tv, anything above line2X will either be off center or flat out not work.
I'm looking for something that takes RGB Scart (composite/s-video input would be a bonus, my C64 can't do RGB), and outputs fully in spec 1080p signal even if that means full processing of the signal.
It would be also nice if it could do decent deinterlacing, the OSSC looks like ass with hi-res Saturn games.

picture unrelated.

what about dreamcast
Don't feel like getting another console on which I only play one game (Soul Calibur 1).
You sound like you know what you’re talking about, if I were looking for an upscaler primarily for laserdiscs but also occasionally some N64, is the retrotink worth it?
i use the 2x and rgb2comp
the latency is better than any other upscaler i have tried

however, i was using cheap shit before that (hdmi2wii, hyperkin etc)

the hyperkin genesis 2 hdmi adapter is surprisingly good, rgb, upscales, relatively low latency, kinda has a "warble" but for playing arcade pcb its acceptable and only 30$

im trying to eliminate as much lag as i can so im using all retrotink stuff and it does make a difference, whether or not you notice it or even play the types of games where it even matters is entirely up to you
i will say the 2x pro does suffer with deinterlacing 480 signals and they look a bit off so maybe the 5x is worth it for you

Top: VF4 PS2 ver emulated on PCSX2
Bottom: VF4 Naomi2 ver emulated on Flycast

Is arcade version supposed to look that horribly oversaturated or is emulation at fault? You might argue that games that were made for CRT tend to have overblown contrast but PS2 version was made for CRTs too?

It doesn't look washed out though? Look at the right Lion's pants, detail is completely lost on Naomi2 version due to severe oversaturation

VF4 Evo and FT don't look too bad color-wise, maybe a tad oversaturated
Emulation appears to be graphically accurate, original VF4 does actually look like dogshit on naomi
Funny how no one ever mentions this, everyone's fixated on ps2 outputting 480i instead of 480p on naomi2. You can fix low res but you can't fix shit color grading
Or more likely they just changed things in the port

I'm not 100% sure but it was rumored they were made by Masaki Segawa (Basilisk's mangaka). I think PS3's character designer is his wife.

This framerate is awful, it makes the game completely unplayable. Why didn't people have standards for framerate like we do now back in the day? No true gamer would accept this low fps now.

>He fell for the "N64 version is best!" meme
Play DC or PC PS2 is worth a look on a replay. PS1 is worst but has some cool additions like the final boss and 2D beta. N64, DS and 3DS are superceeded by superior versions.
How can they defend the indefensible?
They played it they had lesser standards.

PSX was never great system, mostly a mistake.
Mega Man X3 was the first to come to mind,
and yeah... that could have been better.
If only you knew, anon
Starblade couldn't be done on a cartridge, it's all FMV but gives the illusion of a really advanced 3D rail shooter. Closest thing is I guess Starfox which is actually 3D but maybe not quite as advanced. Same can be said for Silpheed which uses FMV's for the backgrounds to give the illusion of really huge 3D worlds.

Popful Mail on SEGA CD is also something they could never pull off on the Super Famicom version due to its limited storage space. I guess to be fair something like Terminator or Rondo could've easily been ported to SNES, but then the audio tracks and FMV cutscenes are half the fun of the CD consoles. Thankfully we do have MSU-1 patches now, so we can have or SNES CD, sort of.
I only wish they hadn't skipped the 32-bit console, even without Sony they could've made a really good one, but instead we got the N64. While the GBA is technically 32-bit it's still a far cry from PS1 and Saturn. And we didn't get cool stuff like Yoshi's Island 2 until the DS

Last month, we had a comfy thread of anons sharing (mostly) retro game music that would sound good on the old school weather channel.
That thread culiminated in this based playlist of 191 YouTube tracks.

During that thread I mentioned I wanted to make an album based on this, and after many hours of finding better quality versions and sorting out proper track names and sources, this is the end result.

This album is available in three formats distributed as a 7z archive split into 200MB parts:
>320kbps CBR MP3 at original sample rates
Part 1: https://files.catbox.moe/748mxs.001

Did this one ever get posted? I have no idea. Here's one anyways. I have this game on pc but the ost is non-existant except for the aquarium shop.
Actually most of the OST seems pretty fitting.

Oh yeah they are pretty expensive unfortunately unless you want to emulate or play with a bootleg . I know another game with fucked story. it´s called G.O.D .

>You are just a little kid wanting to enjoy your summer break
>You fight with the local bully and he became your friend
>You are exploring a ruins when Suddenly,,,
>Aliens destroy the world!
>That little kid? actually was you a big man dreaming about the past
>You form part of the resistance and are trying to find your mom even when she could be dead

And that it´s only the beginning , the story goes in a roller coaster later on. It´s japanese and does have a patch if you want to play it
Kind of a fucked-up twist on the story of Ender's Game, and that story was fucked up enough as-is.
Nothing I've played leaves you with the same weird kind of melancholy vibe that Illusion of Gaia did. I loved Terrranigma too, it was similar, but something about IoG just leaves a weird feeling in the pit of your stomach.
I want to know about more games like in this thread.
yeah i wish snes emulation was literally perfect and i could buy a decent usb snes pad
im genuinely missing out on so many snes games. i havent explored the library at all because its all so expensive

Sonic games used to have surreal looking landscape like that in the original games. For example, hills always have checkerboard patterns on them.

So yeah, those are "normal" looking mountains for a sonic game.

Today on Hidden Gems™, I present to you Co-On-Pa SFC for the, well, super famicom. It's a fun little puzzle game where the objective is to rotate a multi colored cube around a grid in such a way as to make the color of the top face of the cube match the square of the grid you move to. It's got really eclectic background and catchy music, and is fun to pick up and play. You don't really need any japanese to play it

Thanks for tuning in, I'll have a new hidden gem tomorrow
...'Cu'. Not 'Co'.
sounds cool
super nintendo

its a no from me,
there are way too many actual snes games on my backlog to get to this- sorry anonkun
