N64 RGB Mod - Poor quality image
maybe someone can help..
I have a first edition USA N64 modded for RGB and used on a PAL TV that supports 60hz NTSC RGB.
The problem is
-horrible horizontal lines on the top 1/3 of the screen that "flicker"
-a X pattern through all the graphics.
Have a look at the attached image.
I modded this almost 15 years ago - It's modded with the same method as per mmmonkeys RGB "Method 2" on this page http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/console/ni...ndo_64_rgb.htm
For the RGB cable, I've tried both my custom PAL SNES RGB cable and PAL Gamecube cable.
So... do I just need a different N64 specific RGB cable? Is the console just too old? Is my mod too old skool and I should do a different RGB mod?
I used to have a custom N64 RGB cable and as far as I recall it looked ok on my CRT, but that was 10 years ago and I don't have the cable anymore.. That's why I'm thinking I need to get an N64 RGB cable compatible with mmmonkeyes Method 2 - but where to buy?
Update: Added more photos.
-SNES RGB PAL Cable with 75ohm resistors to ground on R, G, B and Composite Video
-GameCube RGB PAL Cable with 220uF Capacitors in series on R, G & B (and 75ohm resistor to ground and 220uF capacitor in series on Composite Video)
According to http://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=av:nintendomultiav those cables are perfect for SNES/Cube however for the N64 there is no info.. "N64 RGB Cable components will depend on the mod performed".
Hmm, are either of those SNES or Cube cables I have compatible with mmmonkeys Method 2 mod?
