Hey cinder, would you not use this if it managed to get implemented?

 

No, I prefer your vasoline-o-vision, the original look just ruins my childhood by showing me how horribly pixelated games were back then. I remember them looking so awesome, and seeing them now in their true form just ruins that memory.

lmao, that's odd because i feel quite the opposite. The pixelation is the best part man! Seeing the games look this way on xbox ruins me, lmao. :P

Thats a great site that explains why the games would look so much better in there native resolutions.I've also got an arcade machine and would love to have a 240p mode from the

xbox emulators, that way they're indistinguishable from the real thing, which is what it's all about, isn't it.

It'd be a feature I'd love and a feature that'd make the hardcore fighter and shmup fans take notice, that's for sure.

From X-S:

 

Since it doesn't look like we'll be getting 240p output from the emulators in question anytime soon, I figured I would post this article:

 

http://scanlines.hazard-city.de/

 

The article explains that you can get an Extron Emotia scan converter to force the Xbox to output 240p.

 

1. You do need to either convert the Xbox's component signal to VGA or just get the Frosty VGA cables.

 

2. You then output the Xbox using VGA to the Emotia and select 480p output.

 

3. Flip a switch on the Emotia to "non-interlaced" and, boom, the flickering is gone and you now have scanlines, 240p.

 

This works great and Emotias are generally cheap, ranging from $50-$60 for the basic model and $120 for the new, "Super" version. Each does the same thing though, so try to get the cheaper one if you can.

 

Many thanks to Tobias!!!

If you want to get the 240p look in HD mode, you can do this as well. Check out the SLG3000 - http://www.arcadeforge.de

 

You can use this in conjunction with a YUV-to-VGA transcoder and 480p output on the Xbox. It works very well.

 

Good luck!
