What is the best, inexpensive S-video cable for Super Famicom console?
There is a guy in Europe on eBay who makes them by hand and they're gold plated. I bought a pair from him and they're solid, no bleeding in the picture that is common with cheap s-video cables.
It seems like last one but has other listings selling same cable. Shipping took about two weeks to US.
How does SNES S-Video compare to RGB and Composite?
Snes has really good video chip so difference isn't quite as drastic as say a Genesis/ Mega Drive but of course RGB will be best quality. However S-video still had a nice sharpness to it and really keeps color bleeding to most minimum.
yeah I was watching that one, so it's really good then? No "checkerboard" distortion?
Will it work on/plug into a Super Famicom console?
Those should be fine as long as the chroma is soldered to the right pin. On most cheap cables they seem to solder it to the composite pin instead causing this issue. Luckily I got the gamecube monster ones for $5 many years ago.
S-Video makes a huge difference with the SNES I found. The biggest tell for me was when I booted up Earthbound, look at NES' shirt when he's facing you. With composite it's a garble of color, with S-Video it's the proper yellow/blue stripe pattern.
I managed to snag an official one from ebay for $30 shipped, always worth a look before buying a 3rd party. Those hand made ones look nice though, a very good alternative.
well I ordered the listed SNES version of this cable from the same seller/maker of the cable. I'm *praying* it works on my Super Famicom console. If not I'll have to sell it on a Retro games FB group... >_>
I just ordered it.. I am **praying** it will plug into and work on my Super Famicom console. if it doesn't I'll have to put it up for sale on a couple of Retro Game groups on Facebook
The multiout connector is identical for SNES/N64 and gamecube of all regions. The only incompatibility comes from using a PAL version of the cable on a NTSC machine. Apparently resistors are added inline to the video out.
Why not buy the official Nintendo cable? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Free-tracki...able-Super-Famicom-N64-SNES-NES-/112195867796
those cost about $33, which is a little much for me. The one made by Gamesnow is shielded and grounded. I already ordered one from Gamesnow on ebay anyways.
You don't have the super famicom jr do you? 2nd model snes and super famicom jr don't support s-video without mod.
It's a normal Super Famicom console SHVC-001 model, not a Super Famicom Jr.
