UD-CPS2: Fully Consolized Capcom Play System 2

UD-CPS2 Raw/Unedited (Interlaced) S-Video Capture Test: Dazzle (DVC100) & AmarecTV :

This was captured via S-Video on a Dazzle (DVC100). Though AmarecTV can deinterlace video for live view, it only records the raw interlaced video. I didn’t feel like messing w/ re-encoding deinterlaced, so here is the raw interlaced capture.

Many people think the Dazzle is a low end device, but with the proper setup, you can in fact get some solid recordings (including audio, which gives a lot of people trouble).

Also, I was pleased to find that I didn’t need to install the huge video suite that comes with the Dazzle in order to do what I want (record/stream). Simply download the device driver from the official site and then AmarecTV (+ whatever video compressor you want to use. I’m using Lagarith). I think my entire recording and streaming setup (I’m using OBS for streaming) is less than 50MB. If you are interested in AmarecTV or OBS (both of which are Free and excellent), there should be plenty of video tutorials floating around for configuring those.

After being deinterlaced via AmarecTV for streaming in OBS, it looks pretty nice. Not bad for an older capture device that I paid $5 for + some free software.

Playing around w/ some streaming stuff and wanted know how it looks on other people’s ends. My internet is pretty bad (less than 1MB) so i’m brodcasting between 500-700KB. Stream is here: http://www.twitch.tv/undamned

The stream doesn’t look bad at all on my end.
I’m surprised that I can watch it at all here at the office, considering most other things are blocked on the network (Youtube, eBay, Amazon, etc…)


#547

Stream looks good. You probably get alot more feedback if this was a new topic though :slight_smile:


#548

Just requested one of these! Hope and pray I can get one!


#549

I am a TO and want one!


#550

did you get that thing I sent you? :stuck_out_tongue:


#551

If it was sent to me, I did not

So, some recent controller lag studies have been making the rounds (How much does your arcade stick lag? Arcade stick input lag testing & results thread) and being as people have begun asking me questions about how UD-CPS2 relates to this, I have to point out an inadequacy of these recent tests. These tests do not reflect raw controller response time. These tests encompass how the console handles polling the controllers and the processing of the controller information in the game itself. There are far more variables running these controllers on an actual PS3 or X360 console than on UD-CPS2. The UD-CPS2 ignores the polling rate requested by the controller. It polls the controller in 1ms intervals for fresh data, regardless of the controller’s USB descriptor.

In short, if you are a UD-CPS2 user, that list is not accurate for you. For kicks, I may test the worst controller on that list (PS3 Fightstick PRO) on UD-CPS2 with an oscilloscope and post the results here.

Pm sent to purchase one of these.Let me know if you have one left.thanks


#554

PM number two about purchasing one if they are still available. Hope to hear back :slight_smile:


#555

My one regret is I can click AGREE only once. I applaud you good sir for your triumphs and your damnation of that heretic lag thread.


#556

Hi undamned, I PM’ed you a while back, just thought I would see if these are still for sale? Let me know!


#557

Sorry, I have a pile of PMs, e-mails, etc. to get to regarding UD-CPS2. I’ll try and sort them in the next couple weeks. Short answer is: yes, technically they are still for sale, but I’m way behind and I will just keep adding names to the wait list with no guarantee as to when your name will come up (though I do a thorough job of keeping the order, based on date of contact).

There’s an article about this on Eurogamer currently.


#562

This is an amazing thing you’re doing here. I hope you don’t get burned out on it.


#563

I tried to give you and some other people shout outs in the interview, but I guess that’s not really the style of the article, so they didn’t make the cut :frowning: You work on the faceplate is still very dear to me :smiley:
