Ok, my problem is that i need to know a LD player model, that can play NTSC and PAL and has a RS 232 connection. Before i spend a few hundred euros for a working hardware setup and asking a lot of people for help, i need to know some stuff. i have read a lot of articles now, but i still got questions.
Copyright/License problems: i talked with SailorSat who has 4 working games captured, but it came out, that there are still copyright problems (WTF!) with some games.
Capturing problems: i didnt found any decent/good card, that could capture the whole 525 lines of a frame. At least not without hacking drivers. However with a Blackmagic card, i could capture 3 VBI lines of my choice (i.e. line 11, 16 and 17 etc.), which would be enough according to Aarons article here:
But i bet, that the LD tool from MAME would expect something different (i.e. whole frame with 525 lines) and the whole thing wouldnt work again. So if i understand it correctly, we would need a rewritten tool that only expect those three (ok there are four, but one is just a copy) VBI lines and not the whole frame. Would that be possible?
I hope you can answer some or all of these questions. So that SailorSat and me could create some setup, that would work.
