Re: Rayman Origins
I'm just OK with CRT TVs but I didn't even know they could do something that a PC can't do! (have better audio than PCs) :o

Well, I'm afraid my parents won't buy them (the cables) and also I want to fix that issue I have with Burnout 3 of not being able to play it because it's really bugging me and that might require buying an official PS2 memory card since the one I have currently is unofficial. Plus I was searching through some of my country's online shopping websites and I can only find it on Ebay which means that I probably can't get results coming from my country (Hungary), I could only get results coming from places that are far away from my country like Malaysia, China and Canada and also we all know that when you buy things from Ebay, you never know if you get scammed or not.

Re: Rayman Origins
I'll be buying an OLED eventually anyway but this the OSSC makes almost any TV decent enough for old games. I use it on 3x and leave the TV in 4:3 to play them.

Re: Rayman Origins
I use a crt for newer games too not just the older ones. I play Splatoon 2, for instance with an Hdmi to Avi converter because I prefer the glass view of the crt it adds to the viewing experience of the game and you never have to worry about input lag with a crt, no matter the console you use or the model of your crt. If you want a good input response on a flat screen your 'best' options are plasma and oled (if you can afford it, most can't yet, oled is a better value than plasma because it consumes the least on your electricity bill of all the different tv displays available. There was another type of tv just like crt, they were more huge than the largest crts' you could get does anyone know the name of it? They are just like a crt but no glass, the screen is flat like todays' tvs.

I like using a CRT for older ones too but the OSSC is the best way to use a modern set. I haven't got an OLED but I have a VA panel in my TV which has decent contrast anyway. The IPS LCDs have awful black levels.

Re: Rayman Origins
I prefer to play video games on a large crt tv. The quality isn't the best on a crt but the quality isn't that good on modern tvs either, unless you got one of the new oled tvs'. The colors on the flat screen tvs' in particular, aren't too good (unless you have an oled), for instance on dark scenes on an led display it doesn't get dark enough because of the backlighting, that gets me everytime. I usually adjust the picture settings on my crt to the best quality instead of getting it as bright it can get. (the tv itself is 30 inches, the screen is a little less than that but it's bearable.) Through my years of using different crt tvs' and messing with the settings of different models I can say the flickering is not caused by the fact that it's a crt, the reason they look so bad out the box is due to 3 main factors; the contrast is too high, the color is too high, the sharpness is too high. (it's actually great to have the brightness up high, just not the contrast.) (the cables also help but I can make a 320p cable display look magical on a crt.) I play Rayman Legends on it, little to no input lag compared to the competition of tvs', more deph because of the glass and curves and not to mention if you get a well made crt they sound greater than most pc sound sets. I wouldn't had went into so much detail on why they are good, but alot of people hate on crt tvs.

Edit: Also, whoops, I didn't notice this post, thanks for the suggestions. By the way, what TV is ^ using to play Rayman? :) (out of curiosity)
I have a 4K Samsung TV (UE50MU6120) and I use an OSSC on it. I have also played it on a BEKO 14 inch CRT TV. I would recommend having PS2 component cables on a modern TV if you don't already (the ones with green, red and blue cables instead of the yellow, white and red ones) you'd likely have less delay that way than using those composite cables too as the TV has to try deinterlace the image before displaying it. Rayman 1 is 240p but modern TV's often still try deinterlace it anyway because they don't understand the signal.

Edit: Yeah but you were probably born in the 90s and discovered that game way earlier than me because I found it by chance by looking through the cabinet where I store all my PS1 games not so long ago :lol:
Ah, so you recently discovered the game and played, that makes sense now why you feel that way about the game cuz I had those feelings at some point too when I first played.
I am sorry if I had given you a hard time. :)
What feelings? Can you elaborate more on that, please? :| (sorry I just don't get it)
What I meant was when I first played a version of Rayman 1 (Advance) I thought it was really hard at first too and wanted to quit at Picture City since I kept dying and using so many continues there and it stopped being fun for me temporarily. I never gave up on it though and I eventually did finish it lol despite all the troubles. 😄

I might just try playing through Band Land again when I have time actually but first I'll probably focus on getting 1.000.000 lums in Rayman Legends to unlock the last hero (Rayomz) and play some Rayman Origins.
I wish you luck with that, I know you can do it. 😃
Yeah I know I can and thanks for the encouragement, I'm nearly there. :) (currently over 970.000 lums)

Yeah I used to play it in like 1998 or 1999 :lol:

Game mode makes the TV have much lower input lag. Like without game mode, the screen can have about 100ms+ of delay meaning that while on screen you're still on the platform, you have actually already walked off the edge but the TV is displaying it too late if you get what I'm trying to say.

You should always enable game mode and if you don't like the colours then just adjust them in the picture settings. Even test it yourself, just jump and see how long it takes for Rayman to leave the ground, then enable game mode and do it again. You should immediately notice the difference how he jumps almost instantly with game mode enabled. Playing Rayman 1 with a lot of input lag would be setting a huge challenge to yourself and since the game is giving you trouble, this could be a factor.
