How can I tell if a rom is 50Hz/60Hz?
« on: June 02, 2018 - 01:04:59 »
I have a lot of roms like the rest of you. And I want to build out a set for myself that I know will work perfectly on a 60Hz CRT TV. Obviously this would preclude a lot of the European, Brazilian, Australian, etc version of games.

Is there a tool that I could run across my roms to find out which ones support 60Hz? I know some games were released for Europe and still ran at 60Hz or had an option for it at least.

- Usually NTSC is 60Hz, PAL is 50Hz

Handheld cartridge ROMs won't have an option for 50/60 fps - this will be down to your emulator.

As for Console cartidge ROMs and Disc images, this can be determined from it's internal header, and thus how the file should have been named.
