FXPAK (SD2SNES) / Re: FXPAK PRO noob has questions
« on: July 20, 2020, 08:41 PM »
[...]I haven't seen a SNES to HDMI cable that uses RGB, so far the one I found says it uses S-Video,[...]
[...] It doesn't seem like there's an SNES to HDMI cable that gets it's input from RGB. If that's true, I suppose it's so that the newer consoles without native RGB will still work with the cable. [...]

You may have a look on the articles from RetroRGB, most of your questions will be answered from them.
The SNES can output RGB, there are several solutions.
Search for RAD2X, RetroTINK2x, Framemeister,...


Concerning your super scope,  there have been some hacks around to bypass the problem with flat-TVs and lightguns. Try google...
"Play Duck Hunt on Flat Panel TVs! HYPERKIN Announces NES Light Gun for Flat Panel HD TVs!"
"Playing Light Gun Games on a Modern LCD TV"
...

As for wireless controllers the 8bitdo should be the reference. SN30, SF30 standard and pro series. Bluetooth has a little bit more delay but can connect to other BT device as well.
2,4GHz are non BlueTooth types which are known to be faster in communication with the consoles.

Maybe we should ask first what do you understand as "moisture".

As long as you keep PCBs in your room you will not have any moisture problems.
In the basement it may look different. But how do you store your SNES, your TV,...?  These device may also suffer the same way from moisture.

Nevertheless... on eBay you can find metal ammo boxes which are waterproof. I have seen a foto somewhere in the web where the SNES cards perfectly fit into that. There are different sizes of the ammo boxes.
You also get Silikagel on eBay, but make sure not to buy "blue/orange silica gel" as it is known to be toxic.
"... Cobalt (II) chloride is deep blue when dry and pink when wet, but it is toxic and carcinogenic, and was reclassified by the European Union in July 2000 as a toxic material. ..."

This is a very good question, because it depends on many factors.
- In which way are they produced, there are different options available:

- "With the correct thickness and application, gold fingers can be used reliably for close to 1,000 cycles before repair is required."

- How clean is your SNES connector? Dust etc. may reduce the lifespan.

I want to keep my SNES as good as possible, this is one point why I bought the classic SD2SNES years ago. I keep it always in, so I only need to work with the SD card slot. If this slot breaks one day it can easy be replaced :)
And today, nearly all SNES games work and also the SuperGameboy seems to work, there is no need to take the SD2SNES out any more :D

Nevertheless, there are products out to protect gold contacts. I personally use Kontakt GOLD 2000 for my PC cards and consoles since years.

Hope this information will help you :)
