  • i cannot watch him.. it saddens me.. I see a dead man. This overweight is killing him. 5 Years in the futur he will be 10 years older.. or more.. But criticising it is "bodyshaming" .. but a drug adikt will be called out, right... harsh Words are often reason for change. And change is needed in that body. This is neccesary instwead of cuddling him and support him in his freedom to eat 3times as much as a normal human..

  • I just learned that that the us and canada don't know what a scart is, in europe everything was scart before hdmi, even my playstation 1 came with a scart.

  • Right back in the day we were hardwiring all import consoles like the SFC, PCE and megadrive to scart connectors and were able to play all these import NTSC 60hz consoles on our PAL 50hz tv's full screen, full speed but in a higher resolution then they were displaying on native displays. PAL 60 ftw.

  • One guy like 6 years ago does an article about blowing on cartridges not working because they don't do it right and since then everybody runs with it. It absolutely works if you're sloppy enough because it's the combination of the moisture and the friction that cleans a bit from the contacts and makes the game work. I have proven it empirically a number of times. It doesn't even take that many attempts before it's obvious that it works. It blows my mind that everyone still doesn't understand this.

    Bryan McClendonBryan McClendonپیش 9 روز
    • Of course it's not great to be blowing spittle all over your games and then putting them in your machine, instead you should be using qtips and alcohol or those game cleaning cards, but saying it doesn't do anything is flat wrong.

  • The problem with SCART (Or Péritel as I knew) was that it became unseated pretty easily. And if you reseated it time and time again, the pins inside would damage. I don't think I've ever seen round connectors before the era of DVD players, flat TVs and the Gamecube. By this point electronic equipment was pretty much the same worldwide. But that was replaced by HDMI pretty fast.

    BayartBayartپیش 24 روز
  • I upgraded to an oled display a while back and it has a composite input dongle which appears to still be available on lg oleds currently available. Have you tried these out with any retro consoles? if so how do they stack up to dedicated boxes like this that output to hdmi?

  • Almost every TV set in the Netherlands and nearest countries has a SCART input (even my Sony PVM-2130QM monitor has one!), so the cables from Retro Gaming Cables which I'm also using for all my consoles are working just right without the need of an extra device.

  • The "SCART" in France is called "Peritel". It was a standard created in the end of 70's early 80's, invented by a French. Better quality than composite signal, the European version of nes and snes has a RGB signal output

  • Buyin OSSC for SNES is a shot in the dark. Some displays are perfect, some displays work with some options and not others (like works with 2x and not with 3x) and some do not work at all. This is true for every range of monitor resolutions.

  • Clarification on the SNES eject button. Games made later in the SNES run (I don't know what year) can actually be ejected when the system is on. (The cartridge is different and does not lock into the system when it's on like older games such as SMW does.)

  • 8:29: The waterfall actually isn't supposed to look like that. This is an example of where the image is *too* sharp. The game was designed for lower quality displays, where the vertical lines of the waterfall would blend together to create a transparent effect. This video demonstrates well:
