Circo July 28, 2016 Share July 28, 2016 View File Soft-15kHz 1. About The project “Soft-15kHz” is about reprogramming of videoadapters and/or their drivers to make them usable with normal Arcade monitors and/or TVs (via SCART RGB <Details>). It does this by doing small changes to the windows registry to add typical arcade screen resolutions, as well as tweaking some existing ones, and locking out all others. 2. Status The project is to be considered ALPHA Status but should work as intended. * Features o Frontend for Windows 98*, 2000 and XP o 15kHz Resolutions. o 25kHz Resolutions. o 31kHz Resolutions. o ATI Catalyst supported. o NVidia ForceWare supported. o Matrox Drivers supported. o 3Dfx Drivers supported. o Intel GMA Drivers supported. (experimental) o Intel EGD Drivers supported. (experimental) * only ATI on Windows 98. * Planned Features o 35-38kHz Resolutions. o Other Drivers supported. 3. Costs and Donations The use of the project is totaly free, however developing is not, as it sometimes requires to buy certain stuff, most likely new or special video cards. So if you like the program feel free to donate some money. 4. Screenshots and Downloads For Screenshots and Downloads please look at this Thread. 5. Resolutions in Detail Here is a list of resolutions currently used. * 15kHz o 240 x 240 @ 60Hz o 256 x 240 @ 60Hz o 256 x 256 @ 60Hz o 256 x 264 @ 60Hz o 304 x 240 @ 60Hz o 320 x 240 @ 60Hz * o 320 x 256 @ 60Hz * o 336 x 240 @ 60Hz o 352 x 256 @ 60Hz o 352 x 264 @ 60Hz o 352 x 288 @ 50Hz ** o 368 x 240 @ 60Hz o 384 x 288 @ 50Hz ** o 392 x 240 @ 60Hz o 400 x 256 @ 53Hz * ** o 448 x 240 @ 60Hz o 512 x 240 @ 60Hz o 512 x 288 @ 50Hz ** o 632 x 264 @ 56Hz ** o 640 x 240 @ 60Hz o 640 x 288 @ 50Hz ** o 640 x 240 @ 60Hz o 512 x 448 @ 60Hz Interlace o 512 x 512 @ 60Hz Interlace o 640 x 480 @ 60Hz Interlace o 720 x 480 @ 60Hz Interlace o 800 x 600 @ 50Hz Interlace ** o 1024 x 768 @ 50Hz Interlace ** * On ATI uses "Fake"-Resolutions with 1 Pixel increased size to avoid DirectX-Problems. ** Says 60Hz in Windows. * 25kHz o 496 x 384 @ 60Hz o 512 x 384 @ 60Hz * 31kHz o 512 x 448 @ 60Hz o 512 x 512 @ 60Hz o 640 x 480 @ 60Hz o 720 x 480 @ 60Hz o 800 x 600 @ 50Hz ** o 1024 x 768 @ 50Hz ** ** Says 60Hz in Windows. 6. Supported Drivers und Adapters It should work with any NVidia ForceWare (66.93 and up), ATI Catalyst (2.5 and up), Matrox PowerDesk and 3Dfx Voodoo3/4/5 Driver, which themselfs support a large number of modern video adapters. Attention! The Windows default drivers are NOT compatible. Note: The NVidia GeForce 8-, 9- and GTX series require an EDID-Dongle for resolutions below 512x384. For a selection of tested drivers and adapters please look at this Thread. 7. Frequently Asked Questions For a list of frequently asked questions please look at this Thread. 8. Additional Informations * Basic Formulas to calculate resolutions. (In German) * Information on Windows and the Drivers.
