It says here that a supported resolution can be NON Interlaced

Obviously the Saturn has no VGA or Component support but still is it possible to get the Saturn to render in Non Interlaced?

Render, yes, output... not without work.

But no games support even if it could right?

Hm, I am not sure...

* Hi-Vision (EDTV) and 31 kHz (VGA) display support:
* 31 kHz: 320480 or 640480, non-interlaced (progressive scan)
* Hi-Vision: 352480 or 704480, non-interlaced (progressive scan)

(Requires compatible monitor and video cable)


While the Saturn is capable of VGA (progressive/non-interlaced) video, no software ever used this mode and the system cannot force software to run in this mode. Some development systems had VGA ports, but no consumer units ever offered this or other high-res functionality.


That's an RGB mod for the only Saturn model that doesn't output RGB ;)
