Dreamcast RGB list *WIP*

Post by mazonemayu »

Can you guys help me out here?

There are extensive VGA lists for all regions out there, but there’s next to nothing on the internet about RGB compatibility across the NTSC-U & NTSC-J regions. Also every PAL game is RGB compatible so we’ll be skipping that.
What I’m looking for are folks who play American & Japanese games through RGB and via legit unpatched discs. If you have tested a game just leave the name en region in the comments, and I’ll start putting together a list here on the main topic.
Games that don’t work via RGB (they’ll give you a black screen) will ALWAYS support composite and I’ll just put Non RGB behind em for. I’ll start with a few I know out of my head, and will test more stuff as I move along, but I really need your help, since I don’t own every American & Japanese release :mrgreen:

Thanks


NTSC-U

Centipede: non RGB
Giga Wing 2: non RGB
Illbleed: non RGB
Skies Of Arcadia: non RGB


NTSC-J

Cosmic Smash: RGB
Gunbird 2: RGB
Ikaruga: RGB
Musapey’s Choco Marker: RGB
Psyvariar 2: RGB
Shikigami No Shiro 2: RGB
Under Defeat: RGB
Vampire Chronicle for Matching Service: non RGB

NTSC-J games I found RGB issues in, playing unmodified GDIs on an NTSC-U console:
Dorimaga GD Vol. 1: doesn't run
Microsoft WebTV Connection Kit: outputs 31kHz instead of 15kHz
Pop'n Music (all of them): outputs 31kHz instead of 15kHz
Sengoku Turb - Fanfan I Love me Dunce-doublentendre: doesn't run
Super Street Fighter IIX for Matching Service: outputs broken 240p only showing top-left quarter of screen
Vampire Chronicle for Matching Service: outputs broken 240p only showing top-left quarter of screen
Visual Park: DreamPhotoFun program doesn't run, rest of game seems to work

Some of the non compatible games can be patched to work.
I've made some patches here:

I have come across an RGB Fixed Vampire Chronicles. I think it was on here even.

This thread is pretty useful. I'm heavily considering getting a TORO from the beharbros but I think I have quite a few incompatible RGB Games.

I'm not sure I think Street Fighter Alpha 3 and 3rd strike don't do RGB. But somebody will have to fill me in.

As of yet I have no information on those games, as I do not own em, nor has anyone confirmed wether they work or not.

I’m using a few places like forums, friends & facebook pages to help me out, but it is a slow process :lol:

I have 138 verified non-PAL gales in my list atm

Hey, it's my long weekend, and I might be able to pitch into this project. Is a 3rd party VGA adapter
adequate? I have US retail releases available for testing.

EDIT:

I recall this can get complicated really quick. Any negatives I find may need 2 more tests. 1) on a composite to verify the disc function, and 2) using any "force to VGA" function in utopia or any boot or cheat disc.

Thanks, but not really, as I’m testing for RGB and not VGA

Thanks for clarifying. I'm glad I haven't wasted any time on it.

Btw, Akura's are down to $75. I see lots of people crying fowl for GDemu's, but this is yet another essential piece of kit.
