CRT bros....you lied to me...
I got the MiSTRE VGA to RGB SCART cable from arcade express, but the image is fucked.
I've used the costume resolution utility, but nothing seems to work.
any ideas on how to fix it??

I thought this was interesting, so I was reading the product description, it has a bunch of requirements, so you should have read them:

100% Made in Spain by Arcade Express
ArcadeVga to Scart cable (Euroconnector) to broadcast in RGB Pixel Perfect
USB with voltage amplifier 5V + 12V
Supports PC / Raspberry Pi / Mister FPGA
Auto power on and change channel to AV / RGB for CRT TV
Requires graphics card that outputs at 15khz
120cm long cable

You should take particular close attention to the thing that says:
>Requires graphics card that outputs at 15khz
I imagine most GPUs don't, since is the frequency that old TVs require and not exactly a modern requirement. I don't even have a way to know if mine does, so I'm not going to risk buying it, even though this does seems like a good product.
>>
>>9033495
>>Requires graphics card that outputs at 15khz
This is easy to get around, you just have to edit graphics.ini in C:/Windows/ and change the line hz=60 to hz=15. I don't recommend doing it though since it makes your fps per second really choppy, but if you're playing on an old CTR TV it probably won't be able to input many frames anyway.

>>
>>9033473
You're feeding it a resolution that's too high for the display to handle. You need to send it something with a 15KHz horizontal refresh rate, either 240p or 480i (note the i in 480i) for an NTSC display, or 288p or 576i for a PAL display. If your GPU can't go that low consider getting an older GPU with VGA output and putting that in your computer as a secondary GPU, newer versions of Windows will let you set one GPU as display-only and perform all the rendering on the other, more powerful GPU.

Pretty much this zoomers and millennial casuals are jerking off to things they never really understood, never really had. Crash course in how things work, they never touched a computer until long after the concept of PnP existed. Yeah, those CRTs are going to the dust bin. All I can say is welp, there goes your retarded hobby, to the very few people that did their due diligence to understand how things work. Anyway, the people doing the work on shaders is the way to go. TV/monitors are just gonna get better and having documents of how things worked, or at least the resultant, on old devices will provided better results than a haggard CRT that well past it designed lifecycle.

This is likely your problem here. You can probably get your GTX 1070 to output NTSC but it will probably require some hackery. Try livebooting Grooveymame and doing the tests and seeing if any display properly. There's so much variation in CRT sets, and video hardware and GPU hardware and drivers you're going to have to try and brute force a solution which is what groovymame will help you with.

Seems like the sync polarity is messed up. Check that the polarity matches this: (but not sure if it's different for PAL tvs) https://reddit.com/r/crtgaming/comments/nhbvu8/15_khz_240p_super_resolution_480i_from_gtx_1080/
>>
>>9036557
Also don't feed 115hz to a consumer set... It should either be 60hz@240p (or the PAL equivalent) or 30hz@480i (60 interlaced frames per second) (or the PAL equivalent) to be a 15khz horizontal refresh rate.

You need a DP to VGA adapter and a proper mode set up in CRU.

>>9033483
This is very wrong. Lucky you didn't blow up your CRT.

You need 240p/288p or 480i/576i at 60Hz. Also remove ALL the 31kHz modes. Make sure you pay attention to sync polarity and the timings, this isn't villy-nilly shit and you shouldn't just randomly try without research, you can destroy your hardware.

>>9034053
>>9034379
Nope, all you need is a DP to VGA adapter and a 15kHz modeline, plus any cable that works for you, like VGA to RGB SCART or BNC.
I've yet to see someone who didn't manage to make it work who didn't fuck it up themselves like OP here.

There's no reason to use CRT Emudriver anymore.

There's like two thread on /vr/ right now, CRT thread and another one talking about filters that showcase this method working perfectly fine for all the people who claim this isn't possible.

>what adapter should I get?
The DeLOCK 62967 gets recommended for VGA and it also works fine for 15kHz output. The adapter does most the work so graphics card is less relevant as long as your drivers let you output a mode like that, from my experience most newer Nvidia cards have no problem, have tested a few myself, currently running a 2070S.

>Also got any proof?
This was on a 15kHz CRT.
>>9036409
>>9036608

Do make sure you get right modelines and don't do what OP did.
To support most home consoles and arcades, 224p, 240p at 59Hz, 59.6Hz and 60Hz will cover most bases and 288p 50Hz. Use a super resolution for aspect ratio correction, RA will switch to the closest mode itself with CRT SwitchRes and even if it's a mode that you don't have, you'll just have slight black bars or over/underscan with still 1:1 output and perfect aspect ratio.

DP has just less limitations, plus the adapter does the work, so it's a safer bet to know it works.

>and how do I know which resolution works for me?
For starters, try deleting EVERYTHING in CRU for the adapter that goes to your CRT TV (NOT your main display) and copy this one exactly: >>9037094
Restart and try again. Make sure your TV is turned off while you reboot your PC or it send 31kHz modes to it.

>Sorry I don't know jack shit about refresh rates and resolutions
Just glad you didn't break anything.

>>9037150
Like take the checkbox away from >>9033483 1024x768 so Windows can't accidentally select a 31kHz+ mode.
Delete all the other modes you've rated too, from the Extension block also.

Try putting in the mode I mentioned about: >>9037094 under "Detailed resolutions" on the very top. Also click edit on the top/right and make sure under Range limits it's set to V rate 50 - 60 Hz and H rate to 15 - 15 kHz with max pixel clock 60 MHz, check the box that says Include if slot available and press OK.

If you want to add more modes, add them under the extension block, like for 224p and 288p, but first start with 240p and make sure that works, don't do too much at once, otherwise you won't know where the problem is if you have one, go step by step. Good luck.
>>
>>9037059
I'm guessing PAL would be 50hz@288p and 50hz@576i try both sync polarities negative. If that doesn't work, try the polarities you haven't tried yet.

No reason to do so, it's an outdated method, anon got it to work already.

You can use RetroArch and GroovyMAME with automatic mode switching with this method too, I have no idea why people would think the opposite, use all the same modelines as CRT Emudriver if you want, nothing is stopping you, you don't have to install CRT Emudriver thought or use a old ATi GPU.
>>
>>9038805
There is more to CRTs than latency, the average panel is way more than 4ms also, try 12ms. Specially at 60Hz, it going to be way worse in latency than a panels best case scenario running at its max refresh rate.
>>
>>9038852
>use average panel, get mediocre results
Wow. It's a good reason I've qualified my statements with "good monitor" the whole time. What exactly are you trying to argue here? Does the reality that even people who play competitive /vr/ for a living use LCDs bother you that much?
>>
>>9038860
We're talking about average /vr/ users, those won't have high end panels. You said it yourself >>9038805
>then /vr/ shitposters won't either.

Not that it matters since majority of latency, both processing and response, benefit for good panels comes from when they run 144Hz or higher, at 60Hz it's still pretty bad. Pixel response changes with refresh rate (that makes motion worse, specially at lower refresh rates, you'd preferably want BFI then).
You seem to be the one getting bothered by the fact that there's no reason not to use a CRT, even when a panel is "good enough" in most cases, even with high latency. Run-ahead alone usually shaved off two or three times more latency than the average panel.
>>
>>9038889
Bro, you don't get it
Buy a high end LCD, don't use a CRT you can find for free
>>
>>9038893
That's a good reason too of course, if you just want to play /vr/, there's no reason to buy a high end panel, CRTs are usually found for much less or even free. Cables and adapters needed cost barely 40€.

Cute. You know I meant that they won't notice input lag, if even competitive players don't.
>at 60Hz it's still pretty bad.
Even at 60hz you only get 8-10ms of input lag, which is still neglible. I do agree that runahead matters a lot but RetroArch is a whole different ballpark, eg with that you can actually take advantage of the higher refresh rates. This was about some dweeb trying to "well akshually" me about KOF98.
>You seem to be the one getting bothered by the fact that there's no reason not to use a CRT,
You're saying this in a thread made because OP couldn't figure out how to set up his CRT for days. I think it shows the downsides of CRTs pretty well.
>>9038893
If you're lucky enough to get a good CRT for free, then knock yourself out. Unfortunately, e-celebs have made that harder to do. I'm kinda glad that the Melee scene shifted to online before all this broke out.

That explains it, I doubt there's a huge retro gaming scene wherever you live. In OK, we have gaming cons and Melee tournaments spreading the word around so sellers have become savvy enough to charge CRTs at high prices. You can find some at dirt cheap prices but they're usually pretty crappy.

...and? That has nothing to do with high refresh rate or refresh rate related panel latency. Even with G-Sync/FreeSync/VRR you're still running 60Hz content at 60Hz, it doesn't fix the panels problem with latency when running at lower refresh rates.

It can mitigate some input latency and frame pacing issues if you're too lazy to set up refresh rates for the consoles you play and configure frame delay and interval / swap chain in RetroArch, which will give identical results. Nothing to do with high refresh rate though.

>G-sync lets you run 60fps content with the lower latency of higher refresh rates. That's one of its biggest appeals.
The latency benefit comes from not having to use V-Sync.
It's entirely driver side, it has nothing to do with the panels own refresh rate and the pixel response, where the latency and response rate problems of low refresh rates content on high refresh rate panel appear.

You're talking about something different, you're talking about benefits of VRR in general. I'm talking about a good 144Hz panel having bad response and latency when running at 60Hz, G-Sync/FreeSync/VRR or not.

I already mentioned the workaround for non-VRR displays about the text in your image in the previous post.
Meanwhile your benchmark is about G-Sync and frame limiting, you have to cap at 58 FPS for example on a 60Hz G-Sync panel to get the benefit of G-Sync, it would be identical with V-Sync disabled on a non-G-Sync display at 60Hz, but that's not even /vr/ and about modern games, RetroArch has it's own methods to use hybrid V-Sync to get the same latency benefits without tearing on non-VRR displays, as I mentioned in the previous post already. The only real benefit of G-Sync/FreeSync/VRR for /vr/ is that you don't have to create custom modelines and refresh rates to every consoles you want to play, that's it.

You're welcome, glad it works.

I made you a file with some common modelines you can try to have better support with different emulators and consoles. As long as CRT SwitchRes is turned on in RetroArch, it will automatically switch.
https://pastebin.com/c11uzw90

Make sure you have selected the adapter in CRU and click on Import and inport that file. You might have to do the Edit part in >>9037165 again, like:
>Also click edit on the top/right and make sure under Range limits it's set to V rate 50 - 60 Hz and H rate to 15 - 15 kHz with max pixel clock 60 MHz, check the box that says Include if slot available and press OK.
Don't forget to check that it's correct, since otherwise Windows might automatically make more modes which could be wrong and cause troubles.

>But the thing is I want to play native pc games too, is there a way to fix the aspect ratio through cru?
You can, I already made the file above, but add it yourself, first load the file from above and then also add this mode from pic related under "Extension block" in CRU, just copy it again 1:1 like it's on the picture and press OK. Then you can select it in Windows as 320x240.
You can just press Add... and add a new CEA-861 extension block to add the 320x240 resolution from pic related there, if the first block is already full of different resolutions / modes.

Super resolutions like 2560x240 are better for emulation but they stretch everything else, but 320x240 should work with any game/program that's capable of running as such a low resolution.

I don't think how good native PC games will look with that though, don't get your hopes up.

I also see the TV geometry is off to the left a little, if you can't adjust it in the settings of the TV, you might want to play around a little with the timings in CRU, like in pic related, the front and back porch.

Like instead of 22 and 29, make it 24 and 25, that would move the whole picture a little to the right (or if you're using the 2560x240 resolutions, edit those from 160 and 232 to 180 and 212 for example). Don't forget to press OK twice afterwards and restart PC to test, make sure TV is off while restarting.

Good luck.

I'm not that great at making actual guides, if someone wants to do it with my help, just post in the /CRT/ general about it and if I see it, I'll give you any input you want.
I also only use DP to VGA myself right now and can't test other methods, but I can help dig out some previous testing by other anons related to HDMI to VGA and HDMI to component.

For a VGA CRT is it possible to use an OSSC to upscale 15khz console signals to 120hz/30hz for my VGA CRT to run it in 240p

Why not use a device that outputs composite but outputs 240p, i heard the Raspberry Pi and Mister can or will soon, i dont know.

My VGA can do 120hz 240P though when connected to my main PC
>>
>>9045879
Why use composite if you can use RGB? Why use a limited device when you can use a PC?
MiSTer can output RGB too though at 15kHz.

Isnt a decent consumer TV CRT better anyways?
>>
>>9045889
Depends for what, CRT TVs are better for 240p and 480i, VGA CRTs are better for 480p and higher.
Using a VGA CRT for 240p is way too sharp and you have to use BFI or you get ghosting of motion thanks to having to run at 120Hz when the content is 60Hz.

Overpriced in my area and I already have a 240p CRT so might as well use it, it also gets a decent image imo

>Using a VGA CRT for 240p is way too sharp and you have to use BFI or you get ghosting of motion thanks to having to run at 120Hz when the content is 60Hz.
Of course you can just run at 4x resolution and integrer scale with filters at 60Hz too.

>>9045894
That's way too sharp.
>>
>>9045893
OH you meant ghosting, that's my bad for being tech illiterate. I've never noticed that myself and it felt fine
>>
>>9045894
at 120hz? man I bet it must look like ass in motion
>>
>>9045897
Some call it ghosting, some double images. It's when content framerate is lower than the refresh rate.

Currently using Retroarch via my Wii Mini, yes its 240p this time, via composite but looks fine surprisingly enough considering how shitty my CRT is.

I wanted tp run the ImageViewer of RA but older versions dont seem to have it and most builds dont run at all on the wii mini.

I set it up on my pc again to capture some footage, IRL the colors look way better than what my phone could capture and I dont see or feel any ghosting. Please excuse the terrible gameplay I had to use one had to record and 4chan still uses webms so excuse the quality too
>>
>>9050972
It's not something you can capture on video, it's a problem with biological eyes and your brain. Not really noticeable with small sprites but move around so the level scrolls fast, then track the trees and map with your eyes, you'll see them twice.

guys
should i use vga or hdmi on my lcd monitor? i mostly play ps1 and snes games with crt shaders
>>
>>9051247
VGA will result in some artifacts while HDMI or DVI will look 100% correct
Obviously you should use the digital ones and not VGA
