Since several folks asked, I’ve taken some comparison screenshots of the HDMI Gamecube versus my own Gamecube running through the component cables. The screenshots were captured in Amarec with my Startech PEXHDCAP capture card. They were then converted to PNG and uploaded via FTP to avoid any processing WordPress might do. The first thing you notice is that the HDMI shots seem brighter, but that could probably be compensated for by properly calibrating the component video capture.
For anyone wondering why I didn’t use the 240p test suite, it’s because I don’t have the means to launch homebrew on the HDMI modded cube. The left hand image shows component video, the right shows HDMI. We still have a couple of HDMI Gamecube upgrades available to buy here.[image-comparator left=”https://videogameperfection.com/support-files/HDMI-Gamecube/soulcalibur2-char-select-component.png” right=”https://videogameperfection.com/support-files/HDMI-Gamecube/soulcalibur2-char-select-HDMI.png”][/image-comparator] [image-comparator left=”https://videogameperfection.com/support-files/HDMI-Gamecube/soulcalibur2-match-component.png” right=”https://videogameperfection.com/support-files/HDMI-Gamecube/soulcalibur2-match-HDMI.png”][/image-comparator] [image-comparator left=”https://videogameperfection.com/support-files/HDMI-Gamecube/fzero-grid-component.png” right=”https://videogameperfection.com/support-files/HDMI-Gamecube/fzero-grid-HDMI.png”][/image-comparator]
