I must politely disagree. Grandia II in 50Hz has you running around as if in treacle.

But mainly, 50Hz means the screen is squashed with bars at the top and bottom. Which is ugly.

Never defend 50Hz. It is dirty.

60hz or 50hz does not mean 60fps or 50fps most n64 games ran at 20fps max at 30 not all dreamcast games run at 60fps even if your using ntsc how the game is made is more about it then 50 or 60 since most older consoles never even run past 30fps in the first place no why a pal game could not at the dev stage be made to run the same locked 30fps if it was done at the start

i got you, there is a simple way to force 50h pal to 60hz, just boot up the a codebreaker disc, or cdi if you hace gdemu, then just launch the game without putting any cheats, or if you want you can put a cheat or two, then the game launchs on 60z and with screen fixed, this i discovered playing tomb raider pal, just use codebreaker and there you go.
