If you're going that far, why use S-Video when you could use RGB SCART? You get as pure of a signal as you can get that way.

 

Last time I checked over at the Shmups Forum, I caught wind of another Micomsoft device-a "Frame Meister G2" HDMI upscaler designed to take all sorts of analog signals, including 240p RGB from retro consoles in traditional Micomsoft fashion. They'd probably have the sense to include a letterboxing function, given the kinds of people who go to great lengths to run RGB out of old consoles like that anyway.

 

The problem is finding them for sale outside of Japan for a reasonable price, if their XRGB upscalers (meant for VGA output) are anything to go by.

Smoker or not the yellowing is going to happen with the SNES sadly.  Did you get caught up in the different SNES versions with differing video/audio quality (1chip etc)?  I'm with the camp that believes S-video out of the SNES is probably the most cost effective in terms of PQ vs scouring the earth/$$ of RGB (or getting the SNES revision 2 and modding it for RGB).

Hi,

 

My SNES is capable of RGB from what I understand, but I find S-Video to be just fine. I don't want to pay a lot for someone to mod my SNES, I want to keep it original.

 

You can restore a yellowed system by using RetroBright. It takes the yellowing right out!

Yeah I read about retrobrite but from what I gather it's the plastic of the SNES; it just ages poorly!

*hugs* lucky you man :3 I still have my SNES from when I was a kid, and there's a device called the "game saver" which can let you play Super Famicon Games, and Super Metroid is rather epic on the snes!

 

BUT :D, the Wii has a homebrew app that let's you play Snes games, you can use a Classic Controller with it as well which makes for a pretty good 2nd best SNES experince ;3.

 

But yea man Mines still hooked up to my tele! Just don't use it to much any more [seeing as I have a $200 replacement for it -.-]

You can play the old one On the Wii [emulation], but sadly it's not the same... the Audio is never as good in Emulation as it was coming from the System it self! 

 

Still though the new one was nice eye candy!

Yo,

 

Speaking of  emulation, I've been running the carts on my PC with the Retrode. It lets you plug the carts in via USB and play them in an emulator. You can even save on the cart via the emulator! I picked up a wired XBOX 360 controller jsut to play these game son my PC. As good as the original system's were, I have become spoiled by HD SNES games...

I was always a "Nintendo first" kind of guy when it came to consoles, but never hated Sega or anything. I've still got a few fond memories of co-op Streets of Rage at friends' houses.

 

That said, maybe I should give my Sega Saturn a bit more love. Too bad I don't have people around in my neighborhood who would be interested in playing some of its games. (In particular, I want to get a 10-player Saturn Bomberman match going some day.)
