I downloaded and burnt a copy of dcx and it loads up on my Dreamcast, but when I swap discs... nothing happens. strange, ive ran 60Hz games on a PAL dreamcast (also through a scart cable), and the games looked fine. Is the cable an RGB scart, or composite scart (they tend to have problems with 60Hz). I think you just have to pick and choose when it comes to the DC. The grand prize winner will take home the console and game. hmm, thats strange, if its an RGB scart (and a properly working one), then it shouldnt have any problems at all, your TV shouldnt be a problem. If I launch the game in NTSC mode with the code on, the picture is way out of position, with the top half of the screen being black. Otherwise my experiences with Action Replay CDX sound similar to yours, I'm afraid. The other is Hydro Thunder with an Action Replay code. I believe the Dreamcast was the first console to offer a option between 60hz and 50hz between PAL games. The game itself is rather it notoriously bad for a racing game, but many PAL Dreamcast collectors typically are still on the hunt for this rarity. I put the code in and launch the game, but my TV still says it's playing at 50hz. Collections, questions, finds, pictures, games, Homebrew, videos, anything DC related. Except not all of them did. Press question mark to learn the rest of the keyboard shortcuts. I think my tv is a bit dodgeybecause like i said i had problems with my PS3 and picture quality. Thanks in … about booting 50hz pal games in 60hz without the option-yes i have also encountered the same probs as you. I'm trying to get a couple of my PAL games to work in 60hz. Otherwise my experiences with Action Replay CDX sound similar to yours, I'm afraid. The subreddit for everything Sega Dreamcast. Ive got a dreamcast to jamma adaptor which works great but my sega megalo machine doesnt seem to like ntsc or 60hz games. It can also force some PAL games, which are 50hz only into 60hz, this includes: Bust A … i thought DC-x would ALWAYS boot up a 50hz only PAL dc game in 60hz. :(. Does anyone know how to convert ntsc games to pal or if there is a patch where you can reburn the games as pal? ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Both of those games will play in 60Hz if you use a VGA cable (as will all PAL titles that can be run in VGA mode), though you'll need to use the Codebreaker boot disc to launch Hydro Thunder as it doesn't support VGA natively. it could be a faulty cable, though if it works in 50Hz then I wouldnt think so. Then i bought a different component cable (a cheaper one) and that worked fine. My Pal Dreamcast supports 60hz & over RGB scart on a crt tv on a 60hz game the screen again changed to the 480 resolution which you could tell by the menu. DC-X forced 60hz doesn't work on all games though. The game just spins around and that's it. strange, ive ran 60Hz games on a PAL dreamcast (also through a scart cable), and the games looked fine. Use a boot disc and if a game is 50hz in PAL land, get the NTSC version. Prog scan is just for displaying the content in one pass of the image instead of two alternating fields, pal is pal & ntsc is ntsc prog scan does not change this or the fefresh rates.

The DC-X can't play all NTSC games, a handful of games will only work with the correct region Dreamcast. those are the only ones that work properly with 60Hz mode, that might be a more probably issue. I'm running my Dreamcast using a scart lead through my Panasonic Viera at 60HZ and I am getting some really weird colour issues. Any help or knowledge of similar issues is really appreciated. it must be the TV then, like you said, really strange considering its a new TV, unless the TV is faulty, but maybe it really just has problems with 60Hz (if it does, its in the extreme minority), What makes it more odd is that it isn't displaying the usual 60HZ problem only problem is orange and blue etc switch colours. it could be a faulty cable, though if it works in 50Hz then I wouldnt think so.
