    to me it kinda looked like someone took a picture of a donut like this. Then zoomed in on it to show it's texture and then used it as a background.

    Man I love akiba. Was able to casually walk into a store and buy a set of OBSF-RGs as well as snag an Hrap EX SE for 3,500 Yen.
    I mash buttons and stomp my feet to music

    I am so tempted too, but I just ordered a OSSC and about $45 in Magic the Gathering cards.

    Ooh nice. You're getting v1.6 with HDMI & digital audio out! I've been waiting for that for a while.

    Yep. Depending on how that go I might be selling off my XRGB 2 Plus to anyone interested,
    Bu that is not until I give the OSSC a few rounds around the block to decide.

    I heard Tvs are very picky with OSSC. Sometimes it'll work, sometimes it won't.

    On videogameperfection.com's forums they're working their way through a list of OSSC compatible and incompatible TVs:

    My Samsung KS8000 is a-ok!

    I heard Tvs are very picky with OSSC. Sometimes it'll work, sometimes it won't.

    I got a older Dynex HDTV with analog Passthough, it will handle 240p signals via Antenna Co-axial or Component video with some distortion.
    My Tv did fine with my XRGB2 Plus that also just line doubles and pass the image forwards in 640 x 480 VGA.

    it handled the out of-spec signals from my MVS board that don't put out a true 60hz video. So am not worried at that front.

    And all the OSSC I need it to do is did what my XRGB2 Plus did but output in 720p DVI/HDMI.

    720p is all? That's 240x3 exactly. OSSC 3x mode will be perfect!

    The OSSC only Line Doubles and Line Tripples. And it reads video scan line by scan line and not field by field so there less lag (nanosecond range)

    So in many ways its like the older XRGB Devices, like the XRGB 2 and XRGB 3. But unlike the older XRGB2 and XRGB3 the OSSC outputs in HDMI.

    OSSC can do line 4x (960p) and (if your 5:4/4:3 display supports it) line 5x (1200p) as well

    Unfortunately, current hardware can't do 2160p. When something does I'm going to be all over it like white on rice.

    So SNES is the biggest problem? Not some obscure arcade board or GBI?

    All the old game systems are out of spec for NTSC standards.
    The SNES instead of doing a 59.97Hz NTSC signal does a slightly faster refresh rate.
    The OSSC just passes off what ever framerate the console doing, so some HD TVs with strict requirements will not be compatible.
    Neo Geo MVS Arcade boards have a similar issue (they are slightly too slow).

    The issue by the way is with the TV and not the OSSC. Most Sony TVs don't like the out of spec Video.

    Yeah but I was hoping there was one so fucked that it could be the one to test. As in, if this works anything should.

    its a toss up between the SNES and the Neo Geo MVS. And I am not sure if it's every SNES ether.

    I just saw this good deal for anyone who's looking for a ps3/ps4/PC stick and hasn't pulled the trigger yet. I have one myself, they were extremely easy to put sanwa buttons in.
    I might pull the trigger on a second, I haven't decided.

    Deal is only good till Saturday.

    Hope someone capitalizes on this deal.

    I picked these up from Barnes & Noble yesterday:
    TOMY Nintendo Controller Keychains

    Pro Tip: These are in solid red gashapon containers, but not in dispensers. It's supposed to be random which of the five controllers you get. But if you take your phone camera and place it into one of the small holes you can see what's inside.

    28 posts to go.
