I've used WinUAEX a hell of a lot up until now, running all of my old Amiga games with 908x624 res on a nice 50Hz CRT. And I have always been very impressed
Trouble is, I've just bought a new TV, an HDTV. I've used the Enigma switcher to change to NTSC and now all my DVDs, XBMC and various emulators are running in 720p and I'm very happy with the results.
The only trouble is, most Amiga games were designed with PAL in mind. With my Xbox set to NTSC it means that 50Hz mode has now gone out of the window.
I've noticed in one of the posts in this thread that it says 908×624 looks absolutely fine in both 720x576 and 720 x 480.
I've never run an Amiga in NTSC for obvious reasons but how can 908x624 look ok on BOTH 576 and 480?
Surely games like project-x, which use a bucket load of overscan, will look compressed vertically?
Or will WinUAEX continue to output in PAL resolution (I know PAL itself doesn't define the resolution but you know what I mean) but at 60Hz?
I figure that games that had an load of empty black space at the top/bottom (to allow easy use/conversion on NTSC amigas) will now fill the whole screen?
I'm basically looking to get the best possible picture here with no tearing or 'shimmering' where certain areas of pixels are wider than the rest. I understand this will have to be 60Hz but I'm still not too sure as to what my options are regarding picture size/resolution.
Bear in mind I've not had the chance to actually test this out yet as my bridge has died so I can't ftp stuff across at the moment.
Oh and good to see some EAB regulars on here btw, hi alexh
