I don’t know who’s got the math confused but I know that if it’s measured in milliseconds with a number greater than 1 the number is in the frame range. That would affect Fighters.
Most HDMI to VGA converterss are under 1 millisecond, therefore, at slowest, in the microsecond range.
According to the video the HDMI to VGA converter is around 200 microseconds or .2 milliseconds.
If your converters are in the microsecond range it could throw off a light gun by throwing off your aim. And it may throw off the sync on the Sega Master System 3D goggles. For those two cases you should plug it as directly as possible into the basic CRT TV
When you get ping times that are sub microsecond, that’s when you start to get converters that might work with light gun games, if timing were the only issue. There might be other issues that may cause failure that I am unaware of.
But if converters are in the microsecond range then it should not throw off Fighters, music based games and pure reflex games.
What equals a second:
1 thousand milliseconds,
1 million microseconds,
1 billion nanoseconds,
1 trillion picoseconds,
The “time per pixel” of a CRT is in the nanosecond range. That’s why microsecond is not good enough for light gun games. But microsecond range is great for anything that doesn’t need “pixel perfect” timing.
Fighters are measured in frames, which for a 60Hz game, is 16-17 ms. A half frame or less is considered pro level. Therefore an HDMI to VGA adapter in the 200 microsecond range is GREAT for fighters, if hooked up to a CRT VGA.
All I said is a microsecond range delay is a great converter for everything other than light gun and Sega Scope games.
Where exactly am I wrong in this thinking?
People seem to mix up the difference between accurate enough for fighting and accurate enough for light gun games.
Because I don’t know if timing is the only issue with a light gun game with a standard video to VGA conversion, I will not attempt light gun and Sega Scope games on a VGA. If most standard video to VGA converters are in the microsecond range, that’s good enough for me, and most likely good enough for any serious fight fan.
