I have just bought an rgb cable for a pal gamecube and I am getting what looks like a chickenwire effect, similar to watching an image on a low res lcd projector. this is when playing mario, the only game i have on pal, compared to the image i get on my jap mario using s-video the image is no where near as good. does everyone get this same effect ??? i am using an RGB cable from game, and it is RGB, the tv switches to RGB when i turn the cube on, maybe the official cable will improve things, but i doubt it, the imge is very crisp but it seems too crisp, as if it could do with a bit of smoothing out to blend the grid together. So has anyone else noticed this ?? one other thing i noticed is the pal cube is alot brighter than the ntsc cube, using the standard composite cable on bright scenes in mario it almost looks bleached out. so maybe there is a problem with the cube ? anyway could someone tell me if they can see the chicken wire effect too ( easy to spot on big bright areas) on their cube. cheers G edit: just realised that using the composit cable that comes with the pal cube give a normal looking pic, not too bright, and using the same cable on the jap cube makess the ntsc machine too dark. seems that the composite output is different levels for each machine and ,aybe there is a resitor in the pal cable to bring it down to correct level. this happened on the rgb on jap super famicoms.
