Thanks low_budget for the help. I have another question. What's your source for the cart edge connector. I might pick up a couple
and rework a couple of NES's I have. That edge connector works great. Thank you.
Thanks for the review low_budget. I must have a defective unit. Is there a personal favorite you can link to, as far as converters go?
I need VGA, but maybe a definitive list of exactly what you recommend would be very helpful. Thank you in advance.
low_budget I have tried using the GBS 8200 RGB to VGA converter and the OSD menu comes up just fine, but when I turn on the super 8 it literally powers the converter off. I have determined it has something to do with SYNC as when I remove SYNC it does not turn off the converter, but I also don't get any picture. I have made sure that the converter is in RGBS mode and I am powering it with a seperate power supply. If anyone has any ideas I would greatly appreciate it. The converter seems to be working properly as the on screen menus work just fine. Puzzled.
I don't think there is any discernible difference in the two, but I used a RP in the 1.0, no problem.
There has been some chatter that the ??2c03'C' chip has less glitches, but even the glitches that the 'B's have is nothing to get too excited about, like in smb2 at game start falling down there is a little blue line on far right that jumps around. It's considered a glitch of the rgb chip, but really doesn't affect gameplay.
Thanks akaviolence, I know the color palates are slightly off with both of these chips, is there a preferred PPU that will get us closer to the proper color palate?
