earthbound tape test two: same method as before, but I wrapped some aluminum foil around the video plug in hopes of introducing extra noise and making it easier to maintain a connection when partially inserted. (1/3)

screenshots are better than the actual video, mostly because the video often flashes bright white and was pretty difficult to watch. the video cut out more often but for shorter periods, which meant my USB capture device had a hard time picking up anything at all. eventually I'll get a time base corrector, but for now I'm using my phone to record the CRT screen in a dark room. (2/3)


what I liked about this test is how much easier it was to get color distortion. the source video I recorded is maybe not the best for this since the intro has a lot of black, but the gameplay I got before the tape stopped recording prematurely had some funky variations. (3/3)
