After 2 years of owning a PVM-2030 that I kind of stole from my high school and after some of the s video cables that I used to use broke, I finaly bought some RGB cables for it! (a cmptr to scart adapter and a ps2 scart cable) and they kind of (my mail situation is complicated right now) arrived yesterday!
They look amazing! though at first I booted up Sega Ages 2500 Series Vol. 25: Gunstar Heroes Treasure Box and alien soldier looked pretty weird to me because the colors where off and the reds and yellows looked a bit too greenish, so I just assumed that I needed to calibrate the colors with rgb but then after googling a bit and looking at some videos to compare, I realized that that’s how the game looks on RGB, and I was just used to the way it looked over composite and s-video, I’m not sure if the colors that I was used to were the intended colors that happened as a result of composite distortion or if it was just my poorly calibrated and maybe too saturated pvm that’s also probably in need of a recap.
Here are the differences between what I was used to and the RGB
rgb over scart:
Gunstar heroes looks great to my eyes but that may be because I haven’t played it nearly as much as Alien Soldier
I just booted dodonpachi daioujou which I have played a lot, and it gives me the same weird too-greenish feeling as alien soldier, so it’s time to use Artemio’s mighty 240p test suite to see what’s going on, an maybe recalibrate the whole pvm! I’m probably going to spend the whole day on this
