2019-01-14: Both newly scraped images and full images are available again after making a deal with Cloudflare to disable caching. This gives us time to research alternative methods of serving full images. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

>Try to keep it /vr/-related: Nothing past 5th gen(+ Dreamcast). Slight OT might be okay if related to CRTs (E.G. 16:9 compatible models, flatscreens, etc.) Systems with backwards compatibility are also pretty safe territory, assuming you're focusing on the older games. PC CRTs are also a-ok.
>Produce OC! Get out your real cameras and take beautiful pictures of your CRTs displaying recognizable characters with the kind of beautiful accuracy that brings tears to the eyes of young and old alike! If you take 100 photos, at least one of them will turn out alright! (maybe)
>Try to be as detailed as possible when asking info on a specific model. As always, google is your friend, and we are your friends with benefits. Older archived threads aren't a bad place to look either.
>Share appreciation for others choice of technology and personal philosophy of gaming. As always show courtesy in your discussion and moderate yourselves first.

Discussion of video processing and scaling devices is okay, but try to keep the focus on CRTs and CRT accessories

Gonna play FF1 for the first time, decided to go with the Dawn of Souls remake for GBA. Is this a good port? I'm playing on a Hacked Vita (best retro handheld IMO). Is Dawn of Souls a good port? I have the PSP version, PSX, and original NES on here as well (just like how Dawn Of Souls looks. Trying to decide on a party. Right now I'm leaning towards Fighter, Black Belt, Red Mage, and White Mage. Is that decent? Also any tips would be appreciated. Not my first FF, but long overdue for a playthough.

I've been using the original fat PS3 for backwards compatibility with PS1 and PS2 games.

The PS1 games look fucking amazing and somehow Sony emulates them identically to how they played on PS1. Even slowdown when it would happen on PS1, which is fucking amazing. But the PS2 looks like absolute garbage. Even with smoothing on, the image isn't really cleaned up much. What the fuck was Sony thinking with PS2?

Why does PS1, even non-emulated on an HDTV in 240p, look so much fucking better than PS2? What the fuck happened? How can Dreamcast look so fucking good in 480p while PS2 looks like such shit?

Japanese Only Games

I've played quite a few fan translated games, and while some are good, I believe the vast majority of the games translated are mediocre at best (NOT the translation, the actual game play itself).

Do you think that most of the best games actually made it out of Japan and we missed quite a few bullets? I'm starting to think that perhaps we did, and that we aren't missing as much as we think.

Pic related is one of the few games I think we DID actually miss out on. What about you /vr/?
