@  AKA Superman : (06 June 2015 - 10:56 AM) I'm slowly, but surely, convincing her that playing games is important. Her 10 year old daughter loves watching me play The Witcher and has become my co-pilot in gaming seeing things that I don't see.
@  Brandino : (07 June 2015 - 12:33 AM) Lol I'm going on 4 years married and essentially most of the really fun stuff in life has been removed.  Part of getting married and having a family lol
@  Brandino : (07 June 2015 - 12:34 AM) It also doesn't help that console gaming has sucked badly this gen and essentially most games are multiplayer focused which is crappy since I can't dedicate endless hours at being good at games anymore
@  ermac666 : (07 June 2015 - 06:09 AM) Heard that sony is bringing the uncharted nathan drake collection, which is the trilogy to the ps4 on 9 oct. It will run at 1080p, 60 fps.  No MP will be included, but you get the uncharted 4 MP beta.
@  TonyDP : (08 June 2015 - 08:52 PM) They're charging $60 for the Nathan Drake Collection, which I think is way too much given the age of the games and the dearth of new features. They even dropped Uncharted 3's 3D mode. FAIL.
@  d2_s : (09 June 2015 - 06:09 PM) I think it's clear this one is targeted primarily at people who have never played the series before with double dippers as a sedondary priority. For them this is a great value proposition, for those who've played before looming for the definitive experience...maybe it's asking a tad much given that it's squeezed onto one disk feom what i hear.
@  d2_s : (09 June 2015 - 06:10 PM) looking not looming*
@  d2_s : (09 June 2015 - 06:18 PM) P.S @Kyle Congrats on the ball and chain thing and great to see you back :)

@  kyle_5_16 : (11 June 2015 - 10:50 AM) Thanks d2! Haven't seen you online in a long time, you play mostly Xbox One?
@  d2_s : (11 June 2015 - 10:59 AM) Havent seen you in a while either... or your brother for that matter. Been on PS4 more than anything, but I tend to go through phases and rotate through various platforms. There was a point when I was spending most of my gaming time on x1.
@  kyle_5_16 : (11 June 2015 - 11:25 AM) We used to play PS4 very regularly, but we've been pretty much exclusively PC for awhile now.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (14 June 2015 - 07:09 PM) Bethesda E3 conference starts in less than two hours!  Get ready for Fallout 4.
@  Brandino : (15 June 2015 - 10:36 PM) lol a new South Park rpg is coming out
@  d2_s : (19 June 2015 - 07:18 AM) Destiny Taken King Special Digital deal for existing season pass owners in Asutralia...$70 lol
@  KaliniuS : (21 June 2015 - 11:09 AM) My kids used to get spaghetti on my TV screen when I had it on a stand. I've since mounted it high up on the wall and my son throws spaghetti at it now lol... *sigh*
@  SpaceInsomniac : (21 June 2015 - 06:18 PM) Sometimes you just can't win.  How old is your son now?
@  KaliniuS : (21 June 2015 - 06:35 PM) The oldest is 5 and his younger brother is 2. The 2 year old is a complete maniac. "Terrible twos" is what describes him perfectly.
@  ermac666 : (24 June 2015 - 11:40 AM) This came under the radar for me, but I just realized that planetside 2 has been released on the ps4, and drive club PS plus edition comes out tomorrow.
@  SpaceInsomniac : (01 July 2015 - 07:46 PM) Rocket League "car soccer/football" game coming to PS Plus.  Sounds like it might be pretty fun.

First you must have a Gamecube hooked up with component cables to an HDTV.  The Gamecube component cables can be purchased directly from nintendo.com.

Check the list to make sure you are using a game that supports 480p.

While booting up a game, hold down "B".  You will get a prompt asking if you would like to enable progressive scan.  This should only have to be done once.

Newer model Gamecubes lack the port to use component cables.

"The Digital A/V Output port was removed from systems produced after May, 2004 (these systems will have a model number of DOL-101). If you have a Nintendo GameCube without this port, and you wish to play your games in progressive scan, please call our Consumer Service department at 1-800-255-3700, to discuss available options."

Ok, I've tried this with my new nintendo brand component cables, and can't get it to work. :-(

We still have to use the other cables as well right? I mean, it's the only way to get sound!

I have everything hooked up correctly, but I can't see a picture at all!!! What's up?

Yes, you have to have both sets plugged in to get sound.

Are you sure you've got your gamecube plugged into the correct inputs on your TV? And is it a progressive scan game? Assuming you are in the right inputs, if your screen is all distorted, turn the machine off, then back on. Right away press the B button. In a couple seconds the picture should be back to normal, and it'll ask you if you want to enable progressive scan.

If you call this number they offer you a refurbished GC. There is no way to get a new unit that has the port.

Also something different - if you hold down Z and then boot your GC then you'll hear different music.

And PAL GC can have progressive scan turned on for NTSC games via Freeloader.

I managed to snap up a brand new platinum GC with the digital av out port (dol-001) from eBay :)

Cost £50 and came with a sealed Mario Kart Double Dash :lol:

I got the same package myself from a local shop for 47£. They also had a bundle with silver GC + Wind Waker + Zelda collector's edition (Ocarina, Majora and Zelda 1+2) for the same price. Of course those were sold out in no time.

Can anyone confirm the following two statements:

-If your PAL Cube has the digital A/V output and you use a component cable you'll get [great looking] 480i.

-However no PAL games support progressive scan, so if you want 480p you need to import the NTSC version and play them with freeloader.

You'll get 480i in NTSC games running via Freeloader and 576i in PAL games, yes. It won't be "great looking" - not compared to progressive anyway. Compared to composite it will look very good and slightly better than s-video. It will be pretty much identical to RGB-scart.

No PAL games support progressive on a PAL cube. Some of them do when you run them on a NTSC cube using freeloader. How many, I don't know.
NTSC games + freeloader will give you 480p on your PAL cube if the games support it.

Just curious i have the component cables and every time i start up my gamecube ( WITHOUT holding down the B button) it asks me if i want to go into progressive scan. I have yet to hold down the button once and yet all the games still promt me with the option. By no means am i complaining or worried, i am just curious is this common? or am i lucky?

It usually does it if you have done it at least once ... after that it will auto prompt almost every time.

:mad:  Newbie question  :cool:

So I read all night long how to get my consoles ready to display the best picture quality on my NEC VT540  ( http://selfemploymen...MANUAL32259.pdf )

As far as I know most Pal GC Games dont support Digital out signal! But if i use the qoob mod chip than i can force to right?
Can i force other resolution 480p too?

My projector cant display 480p anyway but probably a vga digital output would be
1) progressive anyway doesnt matter which resolution
2) be much more sharper and brighter than video chinch right?

so can i use a vga cable to use vga resolution or does the gc just support 480p at compisite?

Correct me if i am wrong that my profector cant display 480p and please tell me if there is a way to get a much better picture quality than with the poor yellow chinch video ^^
thx 4 help
alku
