help retron 5 picture quality issue

Postby sjb33 » March 21st, 2015, 4:02 am

I have just bought a retron 5 but the picture quality is terrible. I am using it on a sony hd smart tv so I'm not sure if it's a problem with my tv or if there is something wrong with the retron 5. This is a screenshot of streets of rage it looks like a pixelated mess. All the videos I've seen on YouTube the picture looks great. Please help :(

So.. That looks totally average for a 16 or 32bit game. You might want to check out filters, because otherwise the Retron 5 is going to show you perfectly upscaled (possibly stretched to 16:9 aspect ratio) gameplay which looks exactly like this. You aren't trolling us are you?

On further inspection you may wish to check any scaling features on your set, it appears as though the image may be zoomed or cropped a bit, but still other than that without filters pixels are to be expected.

Thanks for your reply the filters do smooth it out a bit but comparing some videos on YouTube of streets of rage on the retron 5 my picture didn't seem to be the same quality even with the filters on. Most of the pictures I've seen are excellent quality with hardly any pixels whilst playing streets of rage I will attach a youtube video screenshot of streets of rage for comparison to my screen shot.
