Even the frame dumps have crushed shadow detail though. It is not like those look good, they aren't much better than on the Pandora. Every LCD has slightly different characteristics. Again look at that exact CV screen on the Pandora and tell me if it looks pretty close to that pic I posted, mine does.
The thing is frame dumps should look exactly the same on pandora's LCD as they look on your (assumingly calibrated) monitor, as (mostly) the same data is sent sent to pandora's LCD and your PC monitor when you view those images. The fact that it looks darker on pandora's LCD means it's gamma is miscalibrated.
I don't really think so, gamma is still wrong on the low side at least.
Well if the global LCD gamma is wrong then howcome all other emus like SNES, MAME etc look OK ? If the main LCD gamma was wrong EVERYTHING would look wrong not just Picodrive. It is also a linear ramp, to make Picodrive look right I would need to go from total black to medium right away which is wrong for everything else.
