  1. I had spent quite a considerable amount of time looking for a nice HDMI upscaler for my now UAV retrofitted Atari 1200XL. The UAV did wonders for the video output, but it was ultimately let down by HDMI (or built in TV) upscalers which assumed much more on-spec video signals, with chroma and luma tolerances that react well to run of the mill comb filters. I bought the Pro version which, in addition to the CVBS to HDMI upscaling, adds support for S-Video (Y/C), Component (YbPbPr), and a few filter options which allow you to fine tune the input signal, even more. It's this guy: and you can get it here: https://www.retrotink.com/product-page/retrotink-2x-pro As you can see, it's very cost effective, compared to the Micom XRGB Framemeister, OSSC, and other upscaling solutions. How does it look? When combined with the output from my UAV modified 1200XL, the results are breathtaking. For both S-Video and Composite, the chroma to luma alignment is excellent! S-Video (Y/C) And with a nice separated chroma/luma signal, the sharpness is striking: close-up, apologies for the moire pattern. Output from PLATOTERM, Text is nice and crisp, and since it's not on Y/C, no color fringing! The P/M color overlays in ICE-T look very nice. Crisp rainbow transitions with zero fuzz in Rainbow Walker: for Ninja, the low contrast portions of background to foreground pop very nicely: Even in scenes with quick luma transitions, the upscaler does a good job with the notch filter to not introduce luma combs: COMPOSITE (CVBS) With composite, the results hold up almost as well, with the major difference being the introduction of unavoidable chroma artifacting, which, because of the well behaved notch filter, keeps luma distortion to a minimum, and makes artifact color look fantastic, as we can see here: With Jawbreaker, maze and dots render well... Let's zoom in on the jawbreaker lives, a nightmare for most composite decoders, note the smoothness: Chicken looks good, too: As does Ae 5200: And to finish, let's go back to the Rainbow Room in Ninja, with the problematic pattern that makes composite decoders cry: Beautiful, 'innit? And it really is a good thing that Mike Chi is a good guy who has a _very_ solid understanding of video signals, he has produced a solid upscaler for a decent price that will get you a superb output, especially if you've gone ahead and placed in a UAV. -Thom
  2. Has anyone used this and how is it compared to the retrotink 2x? I see it's a knock off of it. I need it primarily to record C64 games by plugging it in to elgato HD, I play on CRT.
  3. Hello! For those who didn't know, there is a Gamecube mod available to allow for video output superior to composite without paying for the ridiculously low quantity and overpriced component cable. I won't go into all the details, but basically someone dumped the information off of the fancy component cable and it's conversion chip that is in it. The information is freely available to read and use. Here's a link to the Github if you want to read more. You can find a couple different people showing the results on Youtube, and I'd like to say it just looks AMAZING via an HDMI cable. There's one example below of the amazing results but a not very amazing installation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SyYyQy3oTPY&t=51s There are a couple people working on this project in various fashions, and there are a few major services to get this mod done, but they aren't looking overly healthy right now. BadAssConsoles has a preorder bit that's been up for around a year or so now, and he doesn't update consistently and has recently changed opinion from an internal mod to an external adapter. He's doing great work and all, but there's no real idea of when it'll get finished up. There is also VideoGamePerfection in the UK. They don't have nearly as ambitious a project going for this, but they're also so backed up on preorders that they have a waiting list for their waiting list. There's a few odd modders I've seen around that have their own plans in production, but there's not a good list to choose from of people to do it. Overall, I'm greatly interested in the mod. It offers HDMI for one of my favorite systems that doesn't have a great selection of options, and much like the N64, it doesn't really look great on HDTV via S-Video... Even through the Framemeister. With all this being stated and said, is there anybody who could possibly do this mod for me? I'd be willing to pay all the expenses needed and provide all the parts. I just don't feel confident in my soldering ability. I mean... I managed to replaced a power port on a couple SNES. That's about it. Here's the links below of some details plus the parts needed. (In case someone is interested in this for themselves and whatnot) Pluto FPGA Board - The circuit board that makes the magic happen! The one you'll want is the Pluto IIx . The site even sells some preprogrammed with the software. 3D Printable HDMI Mount - Link to the files for 3D printing a fancy plastic mount. Not required at all, but it looks really nice paired with the board. The Mod Details - The direct details to the mod itself on Github. Has anybody else been watching this?
  4. Guys, I've heard about some type of device which allows one to connect old console to an HDTV via HDMI port. Is there such a device that works with Atari, and if so, what is it called? I have a HDMI plazma panel. I want to hook up my old console to HDMI.
  5. Hey all! I'll be getting my Sega Master System pretty soon. I'm so psyched about it! Does anyone here do modding for the system? ...HDMI, capacitor replacement, or the beloved FM synthesizer mod? I look forward to your posts! Thanks!
  6. I've seen these units around for years, especially in the Bed, Bad and Beyond stores as well as the odd Toys R Us. Never felt inclined to pick those up, mostly due to the limited number of games and the semi-poor reviews on the controllers. So I kept using my 7800s to play the cartridges I wanted. On and off I'd be tempted to grab an Intellivision Flashback (don't play InTV that much), Colecovision (no Donkey Kong), and the 10 versions of the Atari one. Every time I would just put it back on the shelf after thinking it over. Kept also looking for a cheap Flashback 2, but realistically I don't think I would ever add a cartridge slot. I had an eye out for the Flashback 8 Activision edition just because it has pretty sizeable list of games and most of the Activision games. Well, I saw one at the local Walmart and did an impulse purchase of the Flashback 8 Gold. It was not the Activision edition, but it had some titles. What grabbed me was the HDMI connection ... So some thoughts: - I was surprised to see some M-Network games, especially Air Raiders which is one of my favourite games. Overall the list is pretty decent. - I'm very happy with the HDMI connection. It lets me keep my existing connections on my TV intact (i.e. leave my component for the 7800) so I just plug the unit into the AV receiver and am good to go. - The actual resolution (upscaled and no visible spacing between lines) is actually pretty good, and typically how I would I would play on the Stella emulator. - There are wireless joysticks which also allow to pause/rewind the game and give you the main menu functionality. I haven't put in batteries and tried these out. I've been just playing with my standard CX-40 joysticks and it works really well. - In regards to the wired joysticks, having the joystick ports in the front is really convenient. The button layout on the console is a bit odd, with the reset button the 2nd left button, and the select at the very right. There's no Color/BW button as far as I can tell, so not clear how Space Shuttle would work on a console like this. - The main menu is running at 720p and displays HD images of the boxes to select and gives you basic game instructions. It's fairly well done and also allows you to filter to just Atari and Activision games. - Frogger is some sort of arcade or newer console variation. I guess the Parker Bros rights could not be obtained. It looks great, but totally out of place with the Atari 2600 games. The thing that actually bothers me is the lack of in-game music in this version. It's also only single-player. - The Space Invaders is also a non-2600 variety. I didn't play it yet. It looks like the arcade edition. - On the emulation I started seeing some quirks; I especially noticed them in Frostbite where the ice floes would be partially rendered. The odd thing is that this is not just a visual glitch as the collision detection seems to respect the lack of graphic portion, so this totally impacted the game play. In Air Sea Battle, I saw a graphical shift at the right section of the screen for the rows (but not moving objects). - Since I got the non-Activision version, I started looking at ways I can potentially mod it. So opening it up, I see that it's an older generation Raspberry Pi and there's no USB port. On my list to-do for this week is to go to the electronics store and get some parts to do the same that BitMerge did: http://atariage.com/forums/gallery/image/25564-usb-connection/ - Apparently the full library of games is installed, but not enabled as per one of the comments on this post; http://www.instructables.com/id/Adding-Games-to-Atgames-Genesis-Flashback-HD/. That will be the goal to see if I can enable all Activision games, and enable all the other hidden ones (which ever those may be). I'll poke around to see how more roms could be added beyond that. I'll post back my findings once I have a USB connection enabled and see what I can find.
  7. Heyo! The same company that did the HDMI for Xbox adapter (Pound Technology) is working on a PS1 / PS2 HDMI cable. For whatever reason, it's available for pre-order through Limited Run Games. (Not dogging on them, just seems an odd choice for this type of product.) https://limitedrungames.com/products/pound-technology-ps2-ps1-hdmi-cable Heavy Metal Jesus did a preview of it as well. What little I can see there, I'd gladly use this for a PS1 setup, but I would probably stick to component for PS2. Figured I'd share just in case you missed it during all the Mega Sg hype!
  8. This is an exciting new mod from user marshallh on assemblergames.com Here is a link to his website with some pics and info on the mod. http://ultrahdmi.retroactive.be/ He is only selling these to installers not to individuals. I am going to be an installer when his new stock arrives in a couple weeks. I am offering this for $199 installed and free return shipping initially. If your interested in having me install this new mod for you feel free to send me a message.
