Dreamcast Screengrabs - hardware?

Post by Mr. Jones » Sun Jun 25, 2006 12:03 pm

Sup, ya geeks. :D

Question: I want to take screenshots of gameplay of some different shooters on Dreamcast. What kind of hardware would I need to be able to take clean grabs of screenshots? I am using a modded Dreamcast with VGA adapter.

Thanks!

I dunno. Maybe you can use Chankast?

Video input to a computer would work.

I'm assuming that Chankast is the Dreamcast emulator. I am using a laptop - I don't think it would have the speed to run a Dreamcast game. Plus I have original games. I have no idea where to find images of DC software (outside of DCEmu...)

I only have an output port for video on my laptop, Xylene. How would I get a source going into the computer?

I'm looking at USB capture devices - and I'm thinking that I might just have to get a desktop PC to get some decent screen grabs. *sigh*
