By using the VGA adapter on the OSSC you lose the low pass filter which severely affects games in 480i or 240p.

Check the brightness against a test pattern in 240p suite to see if you’re actually losing any detail (I doubt it). The aspect ratio is off on the bottom picture too or at least one of the pictures, be sure to set up your Dreamcast as per the wiki page.

Your cables should be outputting 75 ohm CSYNC not TTL CSYNC, if you have older, badly made cables this could be the case. As long as your cables output 75 ohm CSYNC they are safe to use on OSSC or RetroTINK 5x. There is no need to use a sync stripper unless you have e.g Extron Crosspoints in your setup.
