  • Hello,


    I'd like to get smooth 50Hz scrolling with my Indivision AGA MK3 connected to the Eizo Flexscan S1933 via VGA.


    My Workbench is set to standard "PAL:High Res".

    My hardware setup seems fine: Pre 640x512 PAL works nicely with VGA Mode: Pre 1280x1024 60Hz VESA.


    To get 50Hz, I tried the steps from this thread: Indivision ECS V2 with Eizo S1933 VSync problem


    - Invoked Menu 'Settings/Restore to Defaults' - OK

    - Copied "(Pre 640x512 PAL)", renamed it to "1280x1024 PAL vsync" - OK

    - Picked VGA mode "Pre 1280x1024 50Hz vsync" - OK

    - Clicked 'Test/Adjust' and accommodated it to the monitor


    When I click 'Test/Adjust' the screen briefly shows a test background, but not the adjustments dialog box, then goes black.

    The monitor won't even show the OSD on this black display.


    Is there something I'm overlooking? Perhaps because I'm using the AGA MK3?


    Thanks.

  • I’m the thread starter of that VSync problem.

    I can confirm on my A1200 with the AGA MK3 and S1933 this works also, very smooth scrolling games, demo’s and text.

    I’m back home next Tuesday, I will take some pictures of my configuration if this can help you.


    Edit: The Workbench is set to HighGFX (1024x768); for games and demos -> Pal HighRes 640x512. More news on Tuesday

  • Thank you, that would be great!

    I try to explain my configuration of the Indi AGA MK3...

    First of all, my Workbench runs on a screenmmode of HighGFX Super High Res Laced with 32 colors.

    The HighGFX driver you can download it from the Wiki page of Icomp http://wiki.icomp.de/wiki/Indivision_AGA_MK3/doc

    Copy this driver to Devs/Monitors


    I don't know this will run smooth on a stock A1200, I have the Blizzard 1230 MK IV as aca.

    On the AGA MK3 software I use as Test Mode HIGHGFX:Super High Res Laced and the VGA Mode 1024x768 50HZ XGA


    And now for games/demos I use the following configuration with VSync:

    Test Mode is Pal: High Res Laced and VGA Mode is 1280x1024 60HZ Vesa, this VGA Mode I changed in the next step to work with VSync on the S1933 monitor.

    The Pixel clock I used is 99000000, you'll see the Vertical Freq Hz is 55.0180 and I selected the the VSync option.

    I use also the scanlines option to have the "retro feeling" and set "Darken" to 13%


    If you want I can upload my configuration file but I think you can only use it if you run the Workbench on HighGFX.

    You'll see some glitches in my pictures, it's only the pictures, not on my monitor.
