I will test this out and if it is the same problem i will invest in an official RGB cable. I'm running my Dreamcast using a scart lead through my Panasonic Viera at 60HZ and I am getting some really weird colour issues. © 2020 GAMESPOT, A RED VENTURES COMPANY. I downloaded and burnt a copy of dcx and it loads up on my Dreamcast, but when I swap discs... nothing happens. The first is Virtua Fighter, which apparently can be done with DC-X. Collections, questions, finds, pictures, games, Homebrew, videos, anything DC related. Except not all of them did. Both of those games will play in 60Hz if you use a VGA cable (as will all PAL titles that can be run in VGA mode), though you'll need to use the Codebreaker boot disc to launch Hydro Thunder as it doesn't support VGA natively. I think you just have to pick and choose when it comes to the DC. Won't it break those that are optimised (assuming there are any)? i thought DC-x would ALWAYS boot up a 50hz only PAL dc game in 60hz. The other is Hydro Thunder with an Action Replay code. At the beginning of the Dreamcast’s invention, hardcore gamers and game marketers decided that the new benchmark for video game imagery was the new, smoother level of 60 frames per second. At the beginning of the Dreamcast’s invention, hardcore gamers and game marketers decided that the new benchmark for video game imagery was the new, smoother level of 60 frames per second. Then i bought a different component cable (a cheaper one) and that worked fine. its not the dreamcast either since its working correctly right? DC-X forced 60hz doesn't work on all games though. Orange changes to blue etc. Thankfully this problem sort of started to get fixed. Otherwise my experiences with Action Replay CDX sound similar to yours, I'm afraid. There is quite a premium for complete copies of this game, but bare discs can be found in the $75 USD range. The DC-X can't play all NTSC games, a handful of games will only work with the correct region Dreamcast. Ive got a dreamcast to jamma adaptor which works great but my sega megalo machine doesnt seem to like ntsc or 60hz games. Prog scan is just for displaying the content in one pass of the image instead of two alternating fields, pal is pal & ntsc is ntsc prog scan does not change this or the fefresh rates. it could be a faulty cable, though if it works in 50Hz then I wouldnt think so. :(. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. Is the cable an RGB scart, or composite scart (they tend to have problems with 60Hz). Ok well i tried it on my TV in the bedroom and it worked fine at 60HZ which is strange because the tv in my room is the same TV Panasonic Viera only difference is that it is a smalled tv 22". I believe the Dreamcast was the first console to offer a option between 60hz and 50hz between PAL games. strange, ive ran 60Hz games on a PAL dreamcast (also through a scart cable), and the games looked fine. *Open to the US, Puerto Rico, and Canada (excluding Quebec). I cannot get the vertical hold to stick. For what it's worth, when a PAL Dreamcast is running a game in 60Hz mode (either a PAL-region game that supports 60Hz or an NTSC-region game) it outputs a PAL signal (over composite and S-Video) rather than switching to NTSC (like the PS2 does) though if that was your problem you'd end up with a black and white picture rather than no picture at all. The Codebreaker worked perfectly. Really not sure you'd want a console that forces 60hz on all games, even if possible. Both of those games will play in 60Hz if you use a VGA cable (as will all PAL titles that can be run in VGA mode), though you'll need to use the Codebreaker boot disc to launch Hydro Thunder as it doesn't support VGA natively. could it be the SCART plug on the TV itself, maybe trying to plug the cable into a different plug. those are the only ones that work properly with 60Hz mode, that might be a more probably issue. it could be a faulty cable, though if it works in 50Hz then I wouldnt think so. If I launch the game in NTSC mode with the code on, the picture is way out of position, with the top half of the screen being black. Most if not all TVs from the early 2000s supported 60hz. I put the code in and launch the game, but my TV still says it's playing at 50hz. The game just spins around and that's it. about booting 50hz pal games in 60hz without the option-yes i have also encountered the same probs as you. it could be a faulty cable, though if it works in 50Hz then I wouldnt think so. also some cheaper cables dont seem to work at 60hz, is it RGB scart? Use a boot disc and if a game is 50hz in PAL land, get the NTSC version. New comments cannot be posted and votes cannot be cast. the only possibility is the cable, ive bought before a an RGB scart cable and it gave me lots of picture problems, its always best to buy the official thing (or from somewher you trust, I myself have the official DC SCART cable, so it works fine). i tried sega rally 2, hydro thunder and evil twin,(all PAL with no 60hz option) and they all booted up in 60hz. This wouldn't be much of a problem as 50HZ works fine but some games automatically launch at 60HZ and they can't be changed (jet grind radio).
