Hareware: Game Boy Player Ouput: YPbPr




NTSC YPbPr Profiles for the Gamecube's Game Boy Player:




These profiles were designed for the American NTSC Gamecube original purple colored console, which has the original digital output part that the official Nintendo component cables make use of. As with all my profiles, the intended output from the Framemeister is 1080p/60. Make sure your Framemeister is set to this output mode, and make sure to check "ZOOM" is set to "ON" after you load the profile of your choice. Also remember that the profiles themselves can be downloaded from the main page, while these hardware-specific pages are to document the settings contained within each profile.

Game Boy Interface:

The GBI software written by Extrems is the superior method for driving the Game Boy Player device on the Gamecube. Most of my profiles are designed using the GBI.LL software via the SD Media Launcher you can buy for the Gamecube. However, the last two profiles listed on this page are designed from the default Game Boy Player driver disc if you do not have access to the GBI software.

GBPHGA5X (Gamecube GBI.LL Game Boy Advance mode 5X scaled with aspect correction)

This profile scales the image to 5x the original 160 vertical res.

If you have access to your HDTV's ability to change its overscan mode (stuff like 5%, 10%, none, full pixel, etc.), the suggested display setting would be max zoom. For my Sony display, this is the -1 setting. For other brands, they may refer to it as 10% overscan for example. Please do not confuse the overscan zoom functions described here with your display's standard zoom functions (i.e. "Cinema", "Wide Stretch", etc.).

GBPHGA5X Display

Due to the 5x integer scaling, you will notice black borders on the top and bottom of the screen. If this bothers you, please use the 6X profile that has smaller borders.
