Just curious if games like...

Zelda
Metroid
Flashback

will all work well on the old 3ds xl. It seems like DSTwo is the better option but not sure I want to spend $50 on it (assuming it's actually in stock)

if you have an A9LH 3DS, just inject those SNES roms lol

OP has an Old 3DS, no SNES VC for them

Yeah, unfortunately I saw that. Thought it was strange to see but yeah I have an old 3ds as it's one my niece hasnt been using. Not sure I want to spend $200 to get a new one :)

Might not be the response you're looking for, but with an o3DS, you can emulate the SNES games you listed using blargSNES with pretty good compatibility it looks: https://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/BlargSnes_Compatibility_List

Use Snes9x for O3DS, download latest nightly from here https://github.com/bubble2k16/snes9x_3ds/blob/master/snes9x_3ds.3dsx

I looked at the compatibility lists - looks like they have issues with the games? Though not clear if the issues are really just minor

It work. Theres a emulator for R4 generic flashcards that run most of the commercial Roms. But's a bit laggy in some games, you have to test those 3 you want to see if the speed is OK for you.

    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
