Discord at 240p

I know it's not really usable, but it looks cool.

how many discord notifications have you gotten
There is something kind of retro-futuristic about it, isn't there.
CRTs are great, I’m truly upset I can’t buy a full HD one in 2020. Digital Foundry did a video on how the full HD sony trinitron monitor looks amazing and you don’t need anti-aliasing because the screen is naturally softer.
That’s why 16 bit games used to look so much better than they do on modern panels.
reminds me of the machines used in Blade Runners tests.
Why is it so unusable? I can see da words just fine
Because you can’t see the message board. Only the DMs, servers and call options. How the hell do you use an instant messenger without the message part? That’s why it’s unusable
Y'know, just adjust the aspect ratio a little and boom, perfect tv discord stuff
I mean, sure. I’m just saying the way it looks in this image it’s pretty useless
Yeah, I don't really use discord anyways so I can't be one to judge
🤔 Aspect ratio? Bud if you don't know what scaling is then how'd you find your way in this subreddit in the first place.
It's a joke dude
So what's funny about it.
It's not funny, and I'm aware of that, but to be honest who tf cares, this is merica and I can say what I want
So how is it a joke.
It's not a joke
it really does look cool
At least it’s not on light mode
Video game emulators would look dope
looks like blade runner original.
“Just over lock the panel lol”
My friend got hacked. What an idiot lol. Just overclock your ip adress.
Edit: for all people going further in this thread rabbit hole: don't. You will get bamboozled
His friend got hacked because he didn’t overclock his ip, what do you mean context?
How do I overclock my ip?
You put a clock over your router and that overclocks your ip
Nah I’m just screwing around.
This isn’t the place for that, but since I have some extra time on my hands I’ll give you the quick rundown:
First, call your isp, get to the customer service line. Now this part is very important - greet the customer service person well and establish a good relationship with them, because the next part is going to prove itself to be very difficult. When he/she asks how they can help, say “I would like to be transferred to the overclock department please.” Now this next part is solely on you. They will hustle you for as long as they can, as isp companies often do, but you have to be adamant, yet polite in your approach. Do NOT piss off the customer service rep. Once you get past this part and are redirected into the overclock department, just say “Gaben”. Voila, your isp will be overclocked.
:D it worked!
Damn you're right. That will definitely make it faster.
With CRT's you could literally "overclock" the resolution, fwiw.
Speaking of which, you can also overclock modern panels - though not the resolution since the pixels are now physical.
Just a friendly suggestion, but you may want to change your scale!
And his ID xD
if this gets blown up his discord account is getting spammed
imma add him
Most people say you don’t need a super good second monitor cause all you’ll have is discord and task manager but no one said to go that low.
You mean youtube right? He means youtube, right?
Depends, if I’m talking to lots of people in discord then no but if I’m just playing a game on my own then yes it’ll be some form of video stream
A cheap shitry 1366x768 monitor does me fine at home, and I have a 1280x1024 secondary at work.
A second monitor is a second monitor
When the webcam is worth more than the TV.
hold ctrl and then press minus
I forgot about the zoom shortcut
I know, I need to learn these shortcuts. Hah
Ayyy that's me!!!!
I see that persona 5 wallpaper on the left (:
That a Persona 5 wallpaper on the other screen?
That is by good sir. OP is a fake PC gamer!
I love Persona though, amazing series
tbf you can run the ps3 version off emulator on PC
At sweet 60fps and 4k (up to 10k) master race.
Meanwhile im waiting for the Vita emulator to be functional so i can play P4 Golden at 60 fps 4k

thank you for posting my tweet lol
Yeah ofc, I saw this on reddit, remembered I saw it maybe an hour before on Twitter so I went back so I could drop the link to the original
Mom can we use discord
No we have discord at home
I read 240fps
I had no idea Gateway made CRTs this long... this is probably from 2006, 2007, around the time of the Acer acquisition.
really late reply but yeah it's 2007 model, good eye
Gotta love the resolution
RIP your friend request inbox
Cant hide that dynamic p5 wallpaper from me
I have that same webcam! Such an old beast.
How did you get the output onto the CRT?
it'll be a converter box or a graphics card with svideo out
e: thought that was a tv, not a monitor. it'll be vga, probably via adapters but they might have a motherboard that has vga for the IGP. that or it's just an old computer
I've got an HDMI to RGB output , unfortunately needs an extra power adapter but only cost £5
Sounds good. I'm tempted to try a similar setup to see how low I can get modern input latency.
Damn, thats some quality... quality!
Had to do it

Yo, get your own online persona. I've been using Neptonic since the 90's.
damn it's mine now
What are you using to get video into the TV?
it's a DVI-D port on my RTX 2060 Super into a VGA adapter
that small TV has a vga in?
It's a 17" computer monitor, all it has is VGA
AFAIK the 2060S doesn't come with DVI port
This one does, DVI-D
Hrm.. seems fishy. I use s 1980s Sony PVM as a second monitor and it runs 480 perfectly. While not great, i can make Windows mostly useable.
i just set my monitor to 240p for the picture (yes it's my picture), i usually have it at 1080p and everything looks great
How does one "set their monitor" to 240p?
Or do you mean just change the settings in the OS? If so, which OS? Because in Ubuntu and Mint, there's no 240p option, but you can use xrandr in theory, but I tried and was getting weird artifacts on both a monitor and a PVM. In windows, you have to use a hack, which I did find, was also giving me issues.
I'm on Windows and can set custom resolutions through the Nvidia Control Panel. this guide explains the process
Ah cool. Well thanks for sharing, and I'm glad it worked for you, but i followed a guide with similar steps and no go here. Something about the way my monitor and PVM handle 240p isn't syncing up. I even bought a VGA sync combiner to try that and it still didn't work. There's a tool that forces the driver into a 15khz mode, that got me the closest, but the screen was still kinda messed up so i just bailed out. It looks super crisp at 480, and stuff scales just fine.
Yeah 240p is basically useless, but I was having trouble with 480i for NES emulation so I just kicked it down to what it actually wanted
this hurts me. deep.
it's like your non portable Pip-boy
My second monitor is my old 23 inch tv from 2012
I'm surprised the "gift nitro" button doesn't take up every pixel.
But why tho
Can you convince whatever you have driving that panel to output 480i instead of 240p? Nearly all CRTs accept 480i.
Why does it look kind of ok?
I dig it
Spam his friend requests now
There’s gotta be a program that puts windows into higher resolution when it’s shrunken right? Like that’s such a good idea
looks better than streaming on discord
this is just discord on boomer mode.
but why? why would you do that?
Is that a CRT?
I feel this. My PC hardware has decided to all start eating shit right as this COVID stuff hit. I'm using my backup GPU right now, and my "2nd monitor" is now a thick 720p Samsung TV.
RIP 1080ti and 1440p NIXEUS monitor. My now Flickering Predator X34 says he will see you soon :(
Looks good. Are there any downsides to this because I like using 180p
Persona 5 city background
Persona 5 city background
I have that camera do you think it’s alright
Classic gateway.anyone remember games for gateway?
Life uh finds a way
Everyone knows the human eye can’t see more than 144p
Aspect ratio: yes
They need to add more reasonable scaling...
people always set to do things that dont make sense, but never paused to ask themselves why doing it in the first place
Persona 5 Tokyo
Recycle bin is called da trash Nicee
I read 240hz and was like wtf
Way to leak your discord on Reddit.
I like your P5 desktop background tho
Input Lag: Minimum
Press Ctrl + (-) and that should solve things
Nice Persona 5 Wallpaper, by the way.
Would good for zoom meetings when Im in one and wanna watch streams
You dont have PCMR discord in your top 3 :(
You can run a live wallpaper on it with wallpaper engine just for the aesthetic. It won’t take a lot of gpu since its only 240p
Dual monitor setup? Dude you're flexing too much
GUYS CHECK OUT MY BEW MONITER
*G A T E W A Y*
I used Discord on 1024x768 for 1 year , month ago this crt died and got cheaply 1280x1024 LCD that is even better and now everything is better.
Have you tried Ctrl- to reduce the zoom?
Also I'm sure that the monitor is capable of supporting a very high resolution
This is brilliant
You can change the zoom settings in the settings
Why not 480i tho?
Wouldn't this be 525i?
Hit Ctrl- ?
Tvs like that usually are 480p
crt TVs are usually 240p or 480i. but thats a computer monitor so it is probably xga @1024x768
Yea forgot the i
ewwww just cuz you can, doesn't me you should lol kool never the less!
That aspect ratio is so trash, lmao
I turned my head away in disgust because...I actually think this is awesome
