Guest linglang Posted March 9, 2019 Share Posted March 9, 2019 (edited) I would like to "suggest, advise" people whom want to play games in a correct way to ...... Buy a "old" second hand LCD monitor / TV as big as you want. With a native resolution of 1360x768 (HD Ready) or 1920x1080 (Full HD) Make it two of the same model, for VS (LAN) games / cabins. A old CRT monitor with a resolution at 640x480 or higher at 15 KHz and / or 31 KHz compatible. (no sync on green ?) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Display_resolution https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Refresh_rate https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Component_video_sync These games where "then" designed to function on such hardware resolutions. But nowadays, almost everybody got a Full HD monitor at minimum, and then there are the people with 4K HDR monitors. These "old" games were not "designed" to run at such resolutions. So patches and such are needed for "Ultra HD" upscaling,( in the tv / monitor upscaling lags). Line doubling, tripling, quadrupling and other tricks to fit a "low resolution" game internal resolution on a 2K or $K screen. The PC needed does not have to be a "monster" Let's say a dual RTX 2080 Ti with a Intel Xeon E7-8880 v3 18 Core CPU and 128 GB (at least) Look at my PC specs 8GB RAM, a I7 860 CPU from 2009 a videocard GT 740 (2 GB) from 2013 !!! The only game with a low frame rate is Daytona Championship USA. Within a few years all that old gear is (or is already) scrapped !!! And no way to get it back. Compare it to playing DOS games on a modern PC, without any software "tricks" to make it run correctly. Not to mention, certain hardware DEMANDS by old software !! (anyone got a parallel port on their modern motherboard ?) Good working / not burned in CRT Monitors / TV's, where ? You tell me, there is no more factory in the world who makes CRT tubes anymore. Revision ?? So get some "old" gear , now, or when it is possible, but do not wait to long, because the above ....... Also look at the posts below, some members / people add helpful information, thank them also ..... Edited April 8, 2019 by linglang Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
