Hello guys,

I am developing this software for the Genesis, Sega CD and Dreamcast. It is a homebrew software suite for video game consoles developed to help in the evaluation of upscalers, upscan converters, line doublers and of course Tv processing of 240p signals.

It has tests designed with the processing of 240p signals in mind, although when possible it includes other video modes and specific tests for them. These have been tested with video processors on real hardware and a variety of displays, including CRTs and Arcade monitors via RGB.

As a secondary target, the suite aims to provide tools for calibrating colors, black and white levels for specific console outputs and setups.

It includes, amongst other things: a PLUGE pattern, Color Bars, Gray Ramp, Grid and Drop Shadow test.

Here is the link with all the information:

And the downloads:

If you are interested, all you need is either a Dreamcast and a CD-R, a flash cart for the Genesis or a CD-R for the Sega/Mega CD. I want to port it to other platforms which have a viable SDK, and all suggestions are welcome. I intend this tool to be community driven, so shoot with your features, graphics and code =)

Also, all code is open source and available to the public.
