Request: Can anyone post on YT a small video of SF3 in HD?

Postby Pappets » Sun Jun 17 2018 5:30pm

Hello!
Did anyone played Shining Force 3 in HD in the Sega Saturn with a special cable or in the emulator? If yes, can you do a small video and post it on youtube? I would like to see the 3D action scenes in HD and differences between the original and the HD. I'm not sure how it works but it seems to be possible.

Thank you!

You could upscale the resolution to 1920x1080 (1080p) with a device such as the XRGB Mini Framemeister then record it in 1080p with an app such as OBS.

However, this would not be the same effect as a game that is rendered in 1080p natively. As the original source is rendered in 240p, the image is never gonna look like a modern day HD image.

I have heard that Yabause has the best options for tweaking the video and making it look as good as possible. Though I have never used it personally so I couldn’t confirm this.

In my opinion, the game looks best using real Saturn hardware, with RGB scart cable, viewed on an old, but high quality CRT TV or monitor (such as a S*ny BVM or Trinitron) at 4:3 scale (not widescreen) on a screen no more than about 22 inches.

So those videos that i saw on youtube of Panzer Dragoon Zwei with sharp 3D models is because it was played on the emulator Yabause?

I’m not sure. Do you have a link to the video on YT?

EDIT: Also the footage could have been from the Mednafen emulator. Apparently it’s the best Saturn emulator these days. Unfortunately my PC is mot powerful enough to run it. I’m hoping i can afford to upgrade next year.
