Win10 TV RGB mod
#352655 - 04/07/16 07:32 PM


Check this out, Im so happy because thanks to the help of Hakero1 and the circuits of Eviltim and Jeroni Paul now I can put my old tvs to good use. I adjusted camera exposition but the color looks amazing first person. FYI the gtx950 can output 15khz no problem.

Cheers!

Only thing that worries me a bit is that the tv is 18 years old, although very little use... guess Im gonna buy a couple more for spare now that they are being sold for almost nothing or even given away.

Yep, I created 320x224 (cvt format) with nvidia control panel but even winmodelines seems to work fine! edit- actually winmodelines look blurry, specially 321x240 which looks horrible compared to 320x240 using nvidia custom resolutions.

Thanks!, I swapped to win10 because I was expecting to play new dx12 games but it seems its gonna take devs another year of learning lol.

DX12 games should start to show up in quantity this fall. Really good DX12 games are probably a few years off yet - just making an existing engine like Unity or Unreal run on DX12 isn't optimal the way designing around low-level APIs from the ground up (as e.g. Ashes of the Singularity did) will be.
