A few people have asked me about the setup we used to collect the video footage from the arcade PCB for the SSF2:X Tournament held at 1989 on the 18th of April.
Here is a quick diagram showing the components we used:
To feed the OSSC with RGB from the JAMMA board we used one of these devices:
The MAS RGB-to-NTSC Converter sits in between the JAMMA game board and the JAMMA harness of the arcade cabinet and provides a buffered RGB signal to be used for feeding another display.
These devices are no longer in production unfortunately. We would love to hear from you if anyone knows of a similar device that provides the same functionality.
The OSSC settings we used were:
- 4:3 2x line mode for 480p output
- 50% scanline thickness
This was mainly because the projector in the event venue wouldn’t play nice with any higher resolutions.
