    I’m trying to get my Xbox looking better in 480p but no matter what I do there’s always noise and stuff.

    Should I just leave the settings as default (no sampling options changed)? imo the Xbox doesn’t do that much of a good job with 480p output given all the blur and stuff

    Try allow upsample 2x. Make sure you’re set to 480p not 640×480 too. Aspect ratio looks wrong there too, maybe that’s a widescreen game?

    Did you turn on 480p, 720p and 1080i? I didn’t change any settings other than line multiplier and it looks pretty good. I haven’t tried allow upsample 2X but now I’m curious how it will impact the picture

    Should advanced settings be different for widescreen vs 4:3?

    Coming back to this topic, upsample 2x did kinda help with me but its somewhat sharp on one side but very smudgy on the other side with 480p games.

    Upsample 2x Off:

    Upsample 2x On:

    No matter what phase I have it on I can’t get a sharp image. Changed the samplerate too, nothing. Is there even a way to get optimized timings for the Xbox? I remember FBX saying something about it on shmups but I don’t remember exactly. This is kinda one of the reasons why I’m not a fan of the Xbox’s picture quality. I’m using the official Microsoft HD Pack too. It could just be my Xbox (there’s some rolling lines in 480i mode and they’re very very very faint in the other modes but they’re mostly unnoticable) but I’m not too sure.

    I use some of the same settings the DC use. However, I would be very interested to see a proper xbox settings as I am not sure if I am getting the best out of it.

    The default settings should be fine for Xbox (do not use the Dreamcast settings as Xbox doesn’t suffer from the same aspect ratio problem).

    Of course a lot depends on your TVs scaler too.
