Atomiswave - analog bypass

It has been reported that analog bypass of Atomiswave when in 31k mode does not work properly.

Toaplan 2

Some Toaplan 2 not lock properly, and display a distorted image on CRT monitors and likely no image on an LCD monitor.  The root cause of this is that the irregular sync period is not a multiple of normal lines.  It is normal for sync lengths around vsync to be irregular, but the sum of them are a multiple of normal lines.  Because of this irregularity with Batsugun, first visible lines of the image are not 'where they are supposed to be', and the scaler has trouble displaying this correctly.  It is not confirmed, but it is suspected that this is the same issue the OSSC has.  Gamed tested not working with the Retro Scaler A1 are:

  • Batsugun
  • Dogyuun
  • V-V/Grind Stormer

OSSC Reference:

Taito Fighting Hawk

Does not work correctly with the A1, for (so far) unknown reasons.
