Glitches flickering on screen
« on: October 06, 2017, 08:25 AM »
Using a GB x5. I'm not sure I have seen this with other games yet or not but in Castlevania the adventure I notice when the player moves right it looks normal but when he moves left there is flickering garbage all over the screen. What is the cause of this? I don't think I've seen it on other videos of playthroughs of this game. Is it normal for the game, an everdrive problem, or a problem with my gamecube/game boy player?

I cannot see the vid on Twitch (I notified them, for what it's worth). On what system are you playing? What is the RC of the rom?
I played Castlevania Adventure (E) [!] on my Super Game Boy via Everdrive GB "Classic" and everything is working all right.

Wait till the character is walking to the left and the look at right side of screen in the background areas. There is tons of little horizontal lines.

I've now also tried a different rom- the konami gb collection for gbc features a re release of this game and I see the same artifacts when walking left. I don't see it on other games.

Ethan, I tried regular gbi and other dated versions. All are the same. I've also now tried out lots of roms of other games and it really is just this one game from what I can tell. Maybe something about it the everdrive doesn't like, or maybe that's what the real cart does, I can't say for sure as I don't have the real game.

Are we SURE that this is isn’t the normal behaviour of the game? On a crt or the dmg screen it might be imperceptible... I have to try on a cycle accurate emulator.

No, I'm not sure. It could just be the way the game is. I've tried watching videos online but 1, people rarely walk left in stage 1 where it's obvious and 2, I don't know if they are emulating or not.
