    Affordable Sega Genesis HDMI Console?

    Update, I was able to get in touch with my contact at Fallout Games. First off, he stated that the batch their ordered was supposed to have longer controller cables, and that their next revision will have that this go around. Right now they are comparable with a normal Genesis controller, but they should be closer to that 10 foot length enjoyed by their current SNES clones. While the image appears sharper than the SNES clone, the Minigen HD does have that video distortion on horizontal movement issue. I have forwarded the following video to them for review. My guess is that the pixel uniformity is not there, or the signal is interlaced coming into the scaler, causing this artifacting. All that being said, it still beats playing via composite on an HD screen. There is some latency, but it's not bad. Some of the deke timings might be a bit off against those top tier goalies like Roy or Belfour, but maneuvers like checks, quick passes, really aren't affected IMO. I'm not a pass shot guy so I can't speak to that, but i'd think that would also be affected somewhat by the minor delay. https://drive.google.com/open?id=1g-YrAAq6S1W_sHuoi4UppNZ_PotEuxwm ^^ link for the video

    The Retro World Series Tecmo Tour

    Our friends at the Retro World Series are touring the states running Tecmo Super Bowl events. There is a high probability that we will be teaming up with them for a WI based event, one with a far greater reach. Check out their promo video, and please retweet it to spread the word to other retro gamers.

    I've had some time on the minigen HD. It's performance is comparable to the SNES version from Gamerztek with these differences.... 1) There is some sort of weird graphical distortion on movement. It's something that is difficult to unsee, like some sort of dithering. I'll try to post a video showing that later. It shows up especially around the stars that surround the player 2) The included 6 button controllers on the Minigen HD are closer to the original product, than the SNES version and are "good enough" for NHL94, but I'd still encourage folks to bring their own in case they were finicky. For some reason, the cables are fairly short, in contrast to the 10 foot cables on the SNES clones, which are really nice. Given the choice between composite on an HD screen from an original console, or HD from the clone, I'd go with the clone. The lag was not an issue for me to pull off dekes, one timers, etc. While it's not perfect, it's certainly playable, and would be an improvement over standard systems not attached to a CRT. In both the SNES and Genesis clones from Gamerztek, there seems to be an audio level issue, as in it's really loud and can easily distort, so you have to keep the TV audio down to compensate.

    NHL94 Pc

    The Stars were in Dallas for NHL94, so again, this is NHLPA with one timers added. It's a tweener game. There isnt' even manual goalie.

    Incorrect, it's NHLPA93 teams and rosters. The Stars are still in Minnesota in this game.

    Talked to Scott D over there, he is shipping a console to me today for evaluation. I'll do some streaming and offer some raw opinions on it's overall performance.

    I'm talking about the console listed above. It has NES and SNES ports. One is for NES, one is for SNES. As I understand it their SNES stuff is region free so you can plug the Super Famicom stuff in.
  11. @angryjay93 In the frenzy that followed after the end of the Genesis finals, I regret that we didn't get you in the final picture man. Anybody good with photoshop? I'm talking Michael Scott level.

    HDMI TV's

    I ended up with an OSSC, which is a line doubler. Pros, no lag from the scaler at all, not even 1 frame and it only costs about $200. Cons, it looks like a homebrew project because it is, and it's really finicky with capture cards.

    That's not for Super Famicom, that's for regular NES.

    So we already used about 6 of the Gamerztek HD SNES consoles during the tournament.(not the combo units listed above) I also bought extra controllers from them, as they were amazing IMO, something you don't typically see from a clone controller. The cable was long, the dpad and button action was great for what we are doing. We had the systems hooked up via composite however. I had played on HDTVs, and while the scaler is good for casual play, the timing difference is noticeable vs a CRT. My only complaint with the console was the audio levels. They were way too high, and it was easy to distort. I had one TV that didn't like any of the clones, only a real console. That might be due to the analog signal strength from the actual console. This was 1 out of about 10 TV's I had hooked up during the tournament, so I wouldn't let that be a concern. I have played using their non HD Genesis clone, and I am not very impressed so far. The controllers are shorter, and I struggled with games like Street Fighter 2 trying to pull off the moves. I was able to play NHL94 ok, but the buttons were stiff. I'm assuming the latency will be a similar concern over the HDMI, but I'm awaiting my HD Genesis test unit from them to confirm.
  15. After contemplated how events unfolded all weekend, I recorded a recap video, real raw off the top off my head. Probably missed something of note, but wanted to do this without emotion behind it.
