Well, i can't seem to tweak it to make it look like Mednafen...
I might end up simply using pre-calculated values from the 512-color test lol.

I don't know the problem, but when I try a CD game, the screen turns black and nothing more.
I put the syscards in the .temper\syscards directory :-\, I need something else?
Your game needs to be in bin/cue or iso/cue format.
Check the cue file, it needs to be valid and the filename is case-sensitive,
you might have to modify the cue file.

The syscards file needs to be named "syscard3.pce", make sure that's the case.

I myself tried it just recently (last version) and i can assure you CD games work perfectly.

Also... if you use Filezilla, you need to change the transfer type.
To do so, go to Transfer -> Transfer Type -> Binary.
Then delete your iso and transfer it again to your console.

I'm sorry but i know a lot of people who suffered from that issue and it turned out to be Filezilla's fault.
A MTP implementation to the Zero should fix this but it won't be added any time soon.

I will work on it this week end. What you need is for exemple : Red = 74 / Green = 114 / Blue = 90 , for each of the colours right ? Also there is not 512 colors on this picture but 539 so are you sure it's going to help you ?

Exactly. Start from left to right, go down to the next range, repeat.

Yeah, sorry about that, there's indeed a little more than 512 colors.

If you wish to have better colors on Temper, then this is your only hope.

Thanks Qubits, you're one crazy dude hahaha

You're right, with modified " cues" works fine, thank you so much ;D
Look behind you! A three-headed monkey!

I imagine @gameblabla will put those values into source code so a format like CSV would be easier to work with.

Exactly, it is just easier to manipulate pre-calculated values than over-complicated convertion algorithms.
I just put them in arrays though.

I need Qubits to complete the whole palette so i can get proper color rendering though...
Right now, the palette order is wrong and cannot be used as such until he's done.

What i dont really understand is : shouldnt white be R255,G255,B255 ? for a pure white and a better contrast ? and so all the other values as well, shouldnt they go up to 255 and not 252 ?

Well, that screenshot came right from Mednafen so it can't be wrong.
That being said, the PC-Engine has a huge palette of 512 colors but from the first 512 colors, i can't see a pure white...
Hmmm... i guess i will have to put that palette inside of temper and see what happens.
Thanks Qubits

Let's try with thoses values, if the colors are still too pale then maybe we'll have to tweak them and raise them a bit with a +3 for each of them to reach the 255.

  Teamwork! I love it! Thanks @Qubits and @gameblabla!  It will be very interesting to see if you can get the color palette and saturation/contrast to match the beauty of Mednafen's :)

How is the color fix going gameblabla ? have you tried the rgb values or do you encounter any other problem ?

@Mar8 thanks. This is a great version!
No more vsycnc problems.

It's an awesome emu.
2 minor things, 1. The colours aren't accurate (known issue)
And is it my roms or does Granzort en GnG ( both supergrafx games ) don't work on it?
Aldynes is a Supergrafx game too and that one is running fine, so it is Supergrafx compatible, or isn't it?

Hello, I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it's the only emulator I have problems with. I'm unable to launch anything... I've tried cue/iso/ogg, cue/bin/ogg, with all cue fields named properly and with binary transfer (rebooting the console and deleting each time the old image before retrying). All these images come from my Caanoo (temper via ginge)
I always have a black screen...
EDIT: I also have the syscard.pce (renamed from syscard.bin) into /usr/local/home/.temper/syscards !

ps. Thank you very much gameblabla for all your work (I'm french and from the OpenConsoles forum, I've seen your posts there!)
