Hang on - my card; overscan problem
Post Posted: Mon Dec 11, 2023 7:23 pm
Hi at all,

i received today a hang on for the mark iii,
and i have this tv problem only with this game.
With a pal hang on card, i don't have
this accentuated overscan problem.

I hope is not a serious problem.

I'm playing with VA3 power base, wtih Japanese bios.

Thanks at all,

Toshio

Hang-On was slightly changed for the non-Japanese release so that might be why the Japanese card displays differently.

I was curious and made some screenshots with Emulicious.

It's too bad they weren't able to add grey alternating lines on the tarmac like in this mockup picture.
They are using palette cycling for the red/white kurb stones and the white lines in the middle.

I think it would've been possible if they used raster effect instead.

Plus it already uses line interrupts for the curve of the road, so I think for sure would have been possible!

Looks like no racing game used palette raster effect :(. Do any homebrew race games exist which do?

Outrun used palette cycling too. It has the alternating grey colors on the road, but no kurbs. I don't think there are enough colors to do both with palette cycling.

Space Harrier is tagged to use the palette raster effect. I think it is only used for changing the color of "sprites" transparency to either sky or land color.
The moving ground is done with palette cycling.
