Youtube Falcon (CT60) promotion

Post by sunaiac »

Hey guys,

I bought a usb capture card to try to make videos of various stuff, among them falcon (CT60).
Trying to do simple capture of the actual falcon experience, so far been playing various games (first few videos also show startup sequences)

https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuQkLB ... IQTFY65qzw

I'm a complete noob so first videos have bad color & contrast tuning, scanlines are nice on real screen but bad on capture, etc...
Learning as I go :D

(The falcon is plugged in VGA mode into an OSSC 1.6, which goes to HDMI splitter, on going to USB capture, other to screen in front of falcon. Audio is going from falcon to mixer, main out of mixer to speakers around falcon, monitor out of mixer to OSSC audio in, audio & video are mixed by OSSC)

If there's anything you'd like me to (try and) show, just ask :)
Feel free to point any error or things I could improve also.

So far everything was pretty easy, except for Abbaye des morts which is really not working well through OSSC (funky frequency ?) and same for badmood in 060 mode (OSSC fails syncing easily and game crashes quickly). I'll try to tune the OSSC for those various funny frequencies.

Regards;

PS : goes without saying, but it's a totally unmonetized thingy don't worry.

Good work! Nice videos. You should try a fastest Bad Mood level 1 :)
A little grainy in places like you say but good effort with the hardware capturing :cheers:

l'Abbaye des Morts use a 256x192/512x384 resolution. It works fine on my VGA monitors (both LCD and CRT), so it's a bit strange that an expensive device like OSSC does not handle it.

Yeah that's a strange problem.
OSSC tells me its 525p / 59.94Hz but I think the detection is not right.
Anyway every odd line is displaced a bit, so there is a problem of horizontal frequency I guess.
OSSC is good but can't auto detect / tune funny frequencies, and I guess the falcon somehow doesn't output a perfectly clean or "usual" signal when running this game. That's fine on my VGA screens too.
Why this game and none of those I made video of, I do not know. Same for badmood in 060 mode.
I have to tune the OSSC but I'm not really good at it, for me it's just a bunch of random numbers.
I managed to have the picture correctly once in this game on OSSC, I don't know why but that time the OSSC showed a 60Hz vert. freq. instead of 59.94. Didn't record at that time :(

Added some tyrian, got badmmod working with CT60 (needed to lower overclock), and even played some jazz jackrabbit :)
Anyone knows where to find openTTD ?
