        good fricking luck finding one. 99% of anyone getting a CRT today is getting composite and the dot crawl overrides any benefits of the CRT. also the fixed refresh rate can frick up games running below 30hz. CRT truly is a rose tinted glasses phenomenon, and I am usually the one pushing back whenever someone calls something a rose tinted glasses phenomenon. emulating with a good CRT filter is the best way, assuming the emulator is good.

          Composite only looks bad when you blow it up to 20, 27, etc. 13 inches is comfortable for a desk setup and composite looks beautiful on it IMO.

          CRTs don't have a fixed refresh rate. All consumer screens of that time operated within 15.4 - 15.7 kHz range, meaning the actual refresh was adjustable depending on the amount of horizontal lines drawn.

            The refresh rate of the video mode is adjustable, the fricking refresh rate doesn't adjust dynamically if the game's FPS drops.

            Any European TV with SCART (extremely common) should have it and even cheapo sets will look VERY good with RGB input assuming it doesn't have some terrible flaw you can't fix, like very fricked up geometry or something.

    I still have my old CRTs and since I'm European they have SCART inputs and as such RGB too, without needing modding to override the OSD signals or whatever you need to do on American sets. Have my old CRT monitor too, though it's nothing spectacular, just 17" 1600x1200 75Hz and it has some minor geometry and convergence issues.

    I saw a Dell P1130 for sale and I was considering whether I should get it or not. It's not local so it'd have to survive shipping to get to me and I can't inspect it in person, haven't decided whether I should get it or not.

      Nobody makes the tubes anymore and nobody has the factories to make tubes anymore as far as I understand. It's probably not cheap to start from scratch and the desire for such TVs is niche and will always remain niche if they're just focused on retro shit. On the other hand if you wanted to make a "modern" CRT which could compete with modern screens you'd probably need shitloads of R&D since current monitors are far beyond what CRTs could do in several categories.

      I'm not sure I'd say it's "supposed" to be like that but it's normal. CRTs aren't sample & hold displays which means the image literally flickers with every frame displayed. Depending on the persistence of the phosphors used and the refresh rate this is more or less perceptible, but when the screen is full bright then it's easiest to spot. If your screen is using a low persistence phosphor and you're running low refresh rate like 60Hz then the flicker can indeed be very noticeable.

      Back in the day when I was actually using CRT monitors I didn't like anything under 85Hz, or 75Hz as the very minimum as far as refresh rate goes due to the flicker.

        You really don't need those for video games, any TV with component / RGB input will look very good and will almost certainly be closer to the "intended" look of the game. Nobody made games designed to be displayed on PVMs, even arcade monitors which were hooked up over RGB weren't PVMs. There's no reason to consider spending that much on old shit.

        Don't get me wrong, if you can find one for cheap then yeah, go ahead since it will surely look excellent but with such insane prices you're better off looking for a consumer TV which can take the same signals, it will still look awesome.

        Im on PAL territory with a PAL TV, its 50hz,this is probably why lmao.

        Yeah 50Hz will obviously be even worse. Note that if you're on PAL and I guess in Europe, the TV will probably do 60Hz over RGB SCART if you feed it a proper 15kHz video signal. PAL and NTSC are composite / broadcast color encoding standards, there isn't really any PAL or NTSC over RGB so the TV will likely work at 60Hz too.

    Fricking brainwashed homosexuals all of you. The answer is just the push for higher stock prices, that’s it, it’s not some mystery thing, it’s just a push for higher stock prices.

      The push for higher stock prices means bowing to ESG because the ones who invest in stocks are the ones forcing this shit.

      How do you think stock portfolios are managed anon?

        You are just screaming about esg, you don’t care about stock prices you don’t think it’s a problem, if the video game companies just made line go up because they added in killing Black folk are throwing boobs in games over the actual quality of the game you would be for that. The outcome is the same you just are more ok with the stimulus.
        I on the other hand thing chasing stock increases over making well rounded games is the problem. That’s why you can still have a game like Uncorn Overlord in 2024 because vanillaware seem more interested in making a game than making the line go up for atlus/sega

        The push for higher stock prices is the ultimate result of the wests currently economic system which was created and still ran by majority white Christians, but I don’t blame Christians for this problem because I’m not a moron

                Your source being like “holy shit this family is like a huge conspiracy theory lightning rod to racist” isn’t really helping you as much as you think.

    Why should I care about the Authentic Experience® when I can play old games just as well on my chink handheld? Nostalgia is a disease.
