360 Video settings – Mushihimesama HD

360 Video settings – Mushihimesama HD

I just updated my 360 Video settings page with Mushihimesama HD (scroll down to the bottom). I also noticed (with this game)that at least using the Ultracade Universal Video Converter, the backgrounds will wobble (tearing) terribly unless SMOOTHING is enabled. I don't know if you'll get the wobble if you use a native 480p (or higher) display, but you might give the SMOOTHNESS setting a try if you have issues. I wanted to add video settings for Under Defeat HD as well, but the 4:3 mode is currently in need of an update patch so I feel I want to wait and see what'll happen....

Today I got my hands on something that's very cool. The SLG3000. It's a tiny dedicated unit that produces scanlines for game consoles or emulator setups where you don't have a scanline option in the video settings, or when you don't want to put extra processing strain on your emulator setup. It will accept VGA source video through it's VGA input (female) and output it with added scanlines through it's VGA output (female). This thing doesn't need external power, as the video sources' sync line can make it work anyway. Pretty damn cool. It has some nifty settings that you can access by setting the DIP switches on the unit. For example, you can choose to apply these scanlines to even or odd lines. This comes in handy when you have an interlaced Dreamcast game, as the scanlines can mask this effect leaving you with a flicker/interlace free picture. It can also add that missing "CRT" feeling...

Received this awesome RGB Scart to JAMMA adapter today from Australia. A couple of days ago I also got a pair of Akihabarashop's P360 so tonight I finished wiring it (no soldering nor crimping needed) them up like this: The RGB to Scart adapter picture have a nifty ribbon cable that you can move from the screw connector board (where I hooked up the P360, green screw connectors) to the one on the far right with the JAMMA controls passthrough board. I plan on using this setup for my low res only cabinet. I tried some quick PS2 hookup just to see the picture quality. It is brilliant! ...

I been making lots of posts over at the shmups forums about the Ultracade Universal Video Converter (discontinued) that I use to display my XBox 360 games in my EGRET II. The thread has lots of useful info on this, so I went ahead and copied all of the useful data over to a new page that I've made here should the info disappear sometime. The original thread got deleted by mistake once, and I don't want to go through with another re-write. Click the banner below to read. ...
