Which GBI are you using? You should be using GBI High Fidelity for no chroma subsampling.
Set Video LPF around 16 or 30MHz.
If you were able to write the OSSC firmware with Etcher then it should also work with the profiles. Although I have never used Etcher the contents of the file should not matter at all.
It appears version v1.5.112 of Etcher was released today which might fix it. Otherwise try an older version.
Nice work Ari. I have tried it and it worked fine.
For windows I found that you can use Win32 Disk Imager and just click read and cancel quickly and the first few MBs should have been read 🙂
Can you make it so that exporting also writes the header? Currently the web app produces bin files with a zero filled 512 byte header because the OSSC requires it for importing. So it would be nice if the exported file from the OSSC also has a header.
The app shows an error if the header starts with “OSSC” because it assumes the user drag & dropped a OSSC firmware.
If exporting also writes the header then the bin files for importing and exporting both have a header and then I can make the web app just always skip the first 512 bytes. Currently it only starts reading at 512 offset if the header starts with zeros.
@megari Well I have to now. 😛 I have started working on adding binary import support. Thanks for adding the exporting ability to the OSSC.
Is there any program that can easily read 1MB from an sdcard to a file? Most programs just read the entire sdcard size I think.
I suppose it can be done with HxD editor but it is probably too complicated for most people.
Oh you are still on firmware 0.85. I thought you already updated to 0.88 and lost all your settings.
I meant manually copy them over by hand. There is currently no way to export from the OSSC.
If you need your settings back on the OSSC then you can flash back to firmware 0.85. If you haven’t saved or imported any settings on the newer firmware then your settings will still be there so you can copy them to the profile editor.
I have checked the json file but all the settings in the file are just the default ones except the Analog sync LPF setting of profile 0 which has been changed to 10Mhz.
Do you have other json files?
Can you upload the json file somewhere? Do you get an error message?
Unfortunately firmware 0.87 has a bug which makes importing profiles impossible. A new firmware will be released soon.
Your video is private.
If your PS2 only has this problem through the OSSC and not when it is directly connected to your TV’s then there must be something wrong with the OSSC or its power supply.
Did you buy it from Videogameperfection?May 13, 2020 at 11:02 AM in reply to: Random noise in image, tried nearly everything, have no idea how to proceed. #37782
With all modes do you mean Line3x and Line4x also have this issue?
I already tried three different power supplies for the SNES
Any of them an original Nintendo power supply?
It doesn’t make sense that it is blurrier with optimized settings. Are you sure you weren’t outputting at Line5x with generic 4:3?
The profile by FBX is only for 320×240 or 640x480i resolution but there are some games which use 640×240 so those games will have missing pixels with his profile.
BTW the reason that the SNES looked much sharper in that FBX tutorial video was because it was outputting at Line2x before he imported the profile.April 29, 2020 at 10:25 AM in reply to: N64 RGB Advanced – OSSC – Best picture in Passthrough #37323
You are using 320×240 optimized and that is not enough pixels for the menu of the N64 Advanced.
Either use Generic 4:3 which is easiest or use 512×240 optimized mode with the settings that FirebrandX used in the 480i mode of his N64 profile. (773 samplerate, 640 H.active).
Optimized modes are set to 240 lines by default so you may lose some part on the top and bottom if PAL games used more lines. Adjust V.active to show more lines.
