interlacing maybe?

I would say it's not interlacing because the screen is not moving at the pause screen.
As far as I know interlacing is only occuring when the screen is moving. Please login or register to see this link.

Maybe try forcing resolution through hexeditor

And which resolution should I choose then?? I would like to just use one setting to use all my 2tb of emulators and games you see

What are game regions and your console region? Try to switch to NTSC and enable 480p in MS Dashboard.

Pal
And why set 480p in nfs underground 2 if underground 1 is nice this way? :(

Every game is different, one can run at 480p and other at 720p, you don't have to edit every game with hexeditor if it works properly. Just try doing this with this game bc you have problem with displaying it, try different resolutions idk which one could possibly work, this solution is just an idea...

But do you agree that it is strange because I think need for speed underground 1 and underground 2 would not differ much from eachother.. and nfs underground 2 should have at least the same or better graphics than underground 1... you see my point?

Yes, You are right, under the visual aspect they are basically the same game

Have you tried some different copy of this game? Also, I don't think that it is caused by vga cable, but it won't hurt if you try with second one if you have a second one of course. The last think that comes to my mind is trying with another bios, just be careful when flashing bc you can brick your xbox when u pick wrong one.

okay... So it appears not to be the game.... the problem is in the output..
Im was using Please login or register to see this link. component cable on Please login or register to see this link. tv...

Using the standard AV cable solves the problem, but ofcourse the quality of the screen goes down to 480p... Not what I want! 😢

Using the Please login or register to see this link. HDMI cable makes the whole screen shake....|

I already invested some money in a proper cable, but im not too succesful....
I consider buying a Pound cable for the tv and a Please login or register to see this link.  for my pc...

Strange thing is... I got this terrible cheap samsung tv.. and the hdmi happens to work a lot better on it.... soo that makes me doubt.. don't wanna waste more money on stuff that doesn't work..

You may need to recap the console.  Especially the 5 ultra-low ESR electrolytic capacitors near the CPU heatsink.  Most Xboxes use 3300uF 6.3Vdc 105 degree Celsius rated caps.  Make sure you replace them with low or ultra-low ESR caps not plain old electrolytic capacitors.

hmmmm do you think it's necessary? because it's with all the 4 xboxes I own... It only changes when I change the ouput cable

The quality of the impedance matched 75 Ohm coax cables used to carry the component video signals from the Xbox to the TV makes a lot of difference in the video quality.  The cable you linked to may not be using 75 Ohm coax to carry the YPbPr (component) video signals.  You can't use audio quality cables to carry the much higher frequency component video signals to your TV.  I'd try a higher quality Xbox high-definition AV cable/adapter first.  One of the following options:

  • Microsoft's High-Definition AV pack or component video cable
  • Darren Thompson's Please login or register to see this link.  (Please login or register to see this link. ) with a set of component video cables that definitely uses shielded coax to carry the video signals (e.g., Please login or register to see this link. ),  or
  • chimericsystems.com's Please login or register to see this link.

Monoprice also sells higher quality component video cables - see those available on this Please login or register to see this link.  that use larger 18 gauge RG-6/U coax instead of RG-59/U.

Note: The XOSVP does not provide for analog audio so a 5-RCA jacks cable - 3 coax video and 2 analog audio - is not required for it. Only a 3xRCA RG-59/U or RG-6/U component video cable and a TOSLink cable to connect from the adapter to a home stereo receiver with a digital optical input.

Microsoft's High-definition AV pack does provide for analog and optical digital audio connections.  Most sellers forget to include the original cabling that came with the AV pack so you'll need a set of cables for component video (coax x 3) and 2 audio cables for stereo analog audio or a TOSLink optical cable for digital audio out like those required to connect the XOSVP to your TV.

Thanks! XOSVP looks very promising.. immediately send the guy an email!

Also a good advice, if the console is softmodded, set the video region to ntsc so you can enable 720p/1080i. Makes the console look a lot better on modern TV's. Another great but expensive mod would be the HDMI mod by N64Freak. That gives you the best picture that's possible.

      Hey guys! 
      New here and wasn’t too sure where to put this.
      I recently purchased a TSOP Xbox from eBay, the issue I have is that I’m playing it on my flat screen, but it keeps stretching games into a 16:9 aspect ratio and it is KILLING me.
      i have done everything from setting the setting in the original menu to normal and 480p and nothing higher, to changing the Setting in the multiple software on the xbox. 
       
      Any one got any suggestions to help stopping this stretching? It’s really annoying.
      i did manage to get it into 4:3 but this was forcing it through the framemeister and having that set to 4:3.
      Any help will be appreciated, cheers guys!

      Hi Team,
      I currently have a softmodded xbox, with XBOX4Gamers dash, with about 80 games on it. The games were direct rips from my libary.
      Now i also have a bunch of Xbox games in .iso format as well.
      Can i just FTP this over to my xbox and GTG, or is there more steps to get it working right?
      "" So after reading some other posts, seems to get .iso to work is a hassle."
      Is there a program i can use to just rip the .iso to its default folders like you see when you rip a game on the xbox its self?
