This will be kinda lengthy as I'm going to try to include all steps I went through yesterday.

Bannerbomb'd CMDVDX35 -> Downgrade IOS35. No errors.
Bannerbomb'd WADManager (IOS35), installed IOS35-64-v1040.wad and restarted.
Bannerbomb'd WADManager (IOS35), installed HomebrewChannel.wad and restarted.

Using Homebrew, Launched WADManager (IOS35) and loaded cios_fix.wad - restarted.
Ran cIOS36_rev10-Installer and chose WAD installation. No errors. Restarted.

WAD Manager (IOS249) and installed the following WADs in the order listed below... No errors on anything.
IOS11-64-v10.wad
IOS12-64-v6.wad
IOS13-64-v10.wad
IOS15-64-v257.wad
IOS17-64-v512.wad
IOS20-64-v12.wad
IOS21-64-v514.wad
IOS30-64-v1040.wad
IOS31-64-v1040.wad
IOS33-64-v1040.wad
IOS34-64-v1039.wad
IOS36-64-v1042.wad
IOS37-64-v2070.wad
IOS38-64-v3609.wad
IOS53-64-v4113.wad
IOS55-64-v4633.wad
cios60.wad
ios61.wad

Then I loaded System Menu 3.2U and restarted.
Installed preloader (.29) using WAD Manager and restarted.
Used HomebrewChannel to install HomebrewChannel using the .dol instead of the .wad.

Installed CIOS36 rev10 again, using Network install mode.
Ran IOS Downgrader v1.
Ran cIOS Downgrader v1.2 and loaded 3.2U again.
Ran Waninkoko's 4.0 Update
Ran the IOS60 update (No to IOS61, Yes to IOS60 and yes to patch. No to shop channel)

I then installed BUL3g.wad and it installed without any errors.

Made images of Deadly Creatures, Guitar Hero: Metallica and Metroid Prime 3.

Burned all to TDK 16x DVD-Rs at 4x.
Deadly Creatures - Works fine from BUL3g (Which reports IOS249 btw)
The other two just give me the annoyingly vague 324 error.

What I'm trying to sort out here is if I missed something in my install procedure or if I should be looking at another issue...

Error 324 could mean not the right cIOS installed, bad disk media, bad burn...
check the gamma compatibility wiki to see your games work and then if it says they should work try to burn again?

How can I verify which CIOS is installed? I manually installed CIOSv10, but the WAD I installed backup launcher from may/should/I think I possibly saw it installing a different one (ciosv7 presumably).

I've tried re-burning at different speeds and at this point on a different system.

    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

    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky

    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares

    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

    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

    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

    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol

  • 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

  • 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.
