    Has anyone tried combining the Framemeister and OSSC for PAL consoles? If so, what settings are best?

    I don’t think the tradeoffs would be worth it, what do you hope to gain?

    I suppose it wouldn’t have any gain apart from getting around compatibility issues with capture cards

    Possibly zooming too though you can often change v.active to achieve this.

    True but changing V.Active is something that not all TVs will tolerate.

    The horizontal and vertical masking is also a nice feature.

    Hi Opaque79,

    I run in this configuration for NTSC Nintendo consoles. Obligatory statement of best settings vary per desired experience and TV settings. My general settings are geared towards the largest possible mostly pixel perfect (my eyes like varying amounts of blur) picture while maintaining original aspect ratio on a modern TV. The framemeister is useful in this configuration for its post processing capabilities like zooming. When playing running the Super Gameboy 2 on the SNES, or GBI on the GC, zooming is useful for achieving full screen.

    The settings in my configuration are based off of the following links:
    http://junkerhq.net/xrgb/index.php?title=Optimal_timings – Be sure to understand these parameters
    http://www.firebrandx.com/osscprofiles.html – Starter profiles that can be easily imported into a web app for management
    * https://videogameperfection.com/forums/topic/profile-settings-web-app/
    https://videogameperfection.com/forums/topic/nintendo-64-de-blur/ – Make those N64 pixels sharp! (generally not a good look IMO)

    Overall my settings are customized by changing Firebrandx’s SNES 256 profile 4x line mode to “Generic 4:3” instead of an optimized resolution. Sync and Advanced Timing options are customized for my TV. Use an optimized resolution profile for a sharper image. You could also use the framemeister to sharpen the image if desired. I recommend a sharpness setting of 1 on the framemeister. All other scaling options on the framemeister should be disabled.

    For my needs, utilizing the OSSC and framemeister together yields a better experience rather than using just one device. This configuration is definitely cost prohibitive, even more so if you’re using a retrotink for svideo support. More in the link below.

    Interesting stuff but most of my setup is PAL only so NTSC settings aren’t for me. Doesn’t really matter anyway as the only reason I would do this is to capture it which I almost never do.
