Out of interest, what are the intermediate steps, please?

There are 8 positions, that's 7 intervals; are they ~9.3Hz each? Or is it 55Hz, 60Hz, then in 10Hz intervals to 120Hz?

thanks!

Yeah, a digital indicator would be more helpful.

Well, it really isn't meant to be used regularly honestly. The default should be good for nearly everyone at this point...

Hello,

Sorry, 55hz to 125hz with 10 Hz intervals.

Yes, of course, thanks Tim. Unfortunately, if you've changed it, and didn't happen to notice where the slider was beforehand (oops), it's not obvious how to set it back to the default, even if you know the default is 55Hz, unless you know that 55Hz is also the lower bound.

Yes, agreed, it's all somewhat academic, especially the intermediate points, and thanks to you both for even considering it might be usefully adjustable.

RE: G2 screen refresh rate (20200121)
At the risk of causing an epileptic outbreak--I wrote a couple programs to explore the screen refresh. I started this before Cyrille gave us the details, but there is still some interesting behavior to be seen.

STROBE flashes a square on the screen at a given frequency.
STROBEH and STROBEV move a line and bar across or down the screen, stepping at the given frequency.

STROBE shows banding, so there must be something going on with the vertical refresh of the screen.

I think the faster refresh improves the looks of a couple graphics programs I've written, such as PENDULUMS2. Not worth burning battery most of the time, but cuts down on some afterimage blurring.

-jgs


STROBE
Code:

EXPORT STROBE()
BEGIN
LOCAL x,y,z,c;
LOCAL t,r,s,f,a;
INPUT(a,"Frequency","Frequency",
      "Desired frequency in hertz.",
      55,55);
RECT_P(#BBBBBB);
DIMGROB_P(G1,100,100,#0);
DIMGROB_P(G2,100,100,#FFFFFF);
f:=500/a;
c:=0;
r:=1;
t:=TICKS();
s:=t+f;
WHILE GETKEY==−1 DO
BLIT_P(60,60,IFTE(r,G1,G2));
r:=NOT(r);
c:=c+1;
WHILE TICKS()<s DO
END;
s:=s+f;
END;
r:=TICKS();
//RECT_P(#FFFFFF);
TEXTOUT_P(500*c/(r-t),65,10);
FREEZE;
END;

STROBEH
Code:

EXPORT STROBEH()
BEGIN
LOCAL x,y,z,c;
LOCAL t,r,s,f,a;
INPUT(a,"Frequency","Frequency",
      "Desired frequency in hertz.",
      55,55);
RECT_P(#FFFFFF);
f:=1000/a;
x:=0;
z:=0;
y:=319;
c:=0;
t:=TICKS();
s:=t+f;
WHILE GETKEY==−1 DO
LINE_P(y,40,y,60,#FFFFFF);
LINE_P(x,40,x,50,#0);
LINE_P(z,51,z,60,#0);
y:=x;
x:=((x+1) MOD 320);
z:=((z+.5) MOD 320);
c:=c+1;
WHILE TICKS()<s DO
END;
s:=s+f;
END;
r:=TICKS();
TEXTOUT_P(1000*c/(r-t),65,10);
FREEZE;
END;

STROBEV
Code:

EXPORT STROBEV()
BEGIN
LOCAL x,y,z,c;
LOCAL t,r,s,f,a;
INPUT(a,"Frequency","Frequency",
      "Desired frequency in hertz.",
      55,55);
RECT_P(#FFFFFF);
f:=1000/a;
x:=0;
z:=0;
y:=239;
c:=0;
t:=TICKS();
s:=t+f;
WHILE GETKEY==−1 DO
LINE_P(40,y,60,y,#FFFFFF);
LINE_P(40,x,50,x,#0);
LINE_P(51,z,60,z,#0);
y:=x;
x:=((x+1) MOD 240);
z:=((z+.5) MOD 240);
c:=c+1;
WHILE TICKS()<s DO
END;
s:=s+f;
END;
r:=TICKS();
TEXTOUT_P(1000*c/(r-t),65,10);
FREEZE;
END;

PENDULUMS2
Code:

EXPORT PENDULUMS2()
BEGIN
DIMGROB_P(G1,320,240);
DIMGROB_P(G2,440,25,RGB(255,255,255,255));

// SET UP SPRITES
FOR B FROM 0 TO 19 DO
ARC_P(G2,11+B*22,11,10,
    {#0,RGB(255-B*12,64,B*12)});
ARC_P(G2,14+B*22,14,4,
    {RGB(255-B*12,64,B*12),RGB(MIN(295-B*12,255),104,MIN(B*12,255))});
END;



FOR T FROM 0 TO 1000 STEP .01 DO

RECT_P(G1,RGB(192,192,192));
TEXTOUT_P(T,G1,10,10);

FOR B FROM 0 TO 19 DO
//C:=RGB(255-B*12,64,B*12,64);
//ARC_P(G1,160+150*SIN(T*(1-B/80)),12+B*11,10,{#0,C});
BLIT_P(G1,150+150*SIN(T*(1-B/80)),2+B*11,G2,1+B*22,1,22+B*22,22);
END;

BLIT(G1);

END;



END;

RE: G2 screen refresh rate (20200121)
My unit suffered from some pretty bad flickering/shimmering which was solved when i increased the refresh rate. I linked a video of the before https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJz44s47HA0.

Im my case all shimmering disappeared at about the third highest refresh setting.

My thought is that there is some manufacturing variance in the lcd's which finetuning the refresh rate solves.
