  1. I was screaming ParaLLEl64 at 20:34.

    You gotta check it out. It accurately emulates the N64's video renderer and VI output, including dithering and optional VI filtering, via low-level emulation of the microcode and VI. It supports both software (CPU) rendering and Vulkan, and a GTX 1050Ti, or perhaps a GTX 1060 for games with heavy use of pixel shaders such as Perfect Dark, should be enough to run it at full speed; for software rendering (which is more accurate) you'll need a top-of-the-line i7 or Ryzen 7 CPU. It also properly does modesetting, running at the game's native resolution.

    I don't think it does emulation at higher resolutions, though. You can do that with classic HLE emulation, but it will just look like any other emulator.

  2. Ultrahdmi is great n all…but for the price….. ahh its probably worth it to grab an old crt and play the system what it was meant for….i mean 200 bucks for the kit at best…no thanks..i mean i solder all kinds of stuff and am advanced in it …at least make it more affordable…they would sell a ton more if they knocked down the price….people are settling for rgb because of that

  3. Does anyone sell the ultra HDMI kit for a reasonable amount or is it no longer made and costs hundreds of dollars? When this video was made in 2015, guess these devices were cheaper.

  4. Any idea what a HDMI Modded N64 down converted to RGB, via adapter would look like? Worse than a straight up RBG mod? (PVM)

  5. miss my n64 , should never have sold it . should really go and buy one with an old school Sony Trinitron, emulating just isn't the same

  6. thats funny i was given an N64 and around 1998 and thought it was pretty good back then but now i feel like i got jipped seeing as i had no idea how much id love quake and PC gaming

    imo the 64 is the most popular yet weak ass strictly limited barely performing console ive ever seen :S

    i honestly dont get how nintendo fans just dont care what theyre missing out on because of "good game design" which is just as subjective as valuing performance and current standards.. other consoles actually reach ahead in performance in ways PC might have hard time being as optamized as.. but nintendo doesnt reach ahead in terms of hardware they use cheap cost efficient crap from like 7 years ago and just slap a new coat of paint on mario or zelda :S

    I did not choose nintendo, nintendo was chosen for me by a parent.. just like the company wants

    i just cannot enjoy most of the 64 games anymore and i cannot stand using the controller ever again like ever.. I dunno not enough nostalgia there for me to enjoy what now feels short, empty and generally inferior to other classic 3D experiences >.>

    what is also kinda funny is the next console from Nintendo the Gamecube i still believe is Nintendo's best console and library ever and i havent enjoyed nintendo at all since the cube

    if you dont have boner for zelda mario or pokemon then nintendo is just not that great in terms of features and 3rd party support and now they force these motion control gimmicks and lock content behind collectable shitty memory cards/amiibo's and i would actually almost wanna play the new star fox if it didn't have its core gameplay variables locked behind more purchasable plastic crap

    just release a stationary console with 1080p 60fps shipped with a regular controller with a real LAN input and i might give a crap about the over-hyped exclusives but i am not fucking with motion controls or portable graphics.. and those joycons are just an awkward pain in the ass for me

    if nintendo thinks their audience doesn't need more current graphics and regular controls and regular micro-transactions then Nintendo is dead to me >.>

  7. "anti aliasing- still something you can see today"


    you are showing examples of 360 games which are like 10 years old now.

    too many jaggies is almost strictly a nintendo thing now.

    I see them on character thumbnails in smash ultimate way too much like how the fuck are still images that noticeable.. i havent seen jaggies for over a year on the 4K xbox or PC and barely notice them on playstation.

  8. "scanlines are a requirement for retro gaming"


    I… they.. wha..

    my brain hurts.

    I must literally not be able to fathom what nostalgia is and may never be capable of experiencing it :S i thought i loved asteroids and ghetto atari stuff but that must not be nostalgia cuz these other descriptions of nostalgia sound like.. like if you.. masochism?

    shrugs some people like being kissed some people like being spanked. what a world.

  9. this song, this man, this gaming life…gets me so hype and i can contain how hype i get even in public. i just dance, or shake violently to release the hype.

  10. Well none of these fix N64s huge flaw of going 3d before 3d could be made to look good. All the 3d N64 stuff just looks blocky to me, antialiasing or not, and I thought that when it first came out too. IMO N64 went 3d too soon.

  11. MLIG – This channel is easily in my top 5 channels on YouTube if not my number 1! Coury and Try4ce, for me at least make the situations talked about so 'familiar' I really look forward to every upload even if my PAL GameCube is still causing me no end of trouble! Great channel guys and GREAT content, its a bit cliché but "Keep Up The Good Work!" – MJ

  12. In that 5th gen comparison, a better comparison would be to use an N64 game that looks better than Ocarina of Time. Why not Banjo-Kazooie?

  13. Actually my N64 looks amazing on my Sony X900E TV. For picture mode I use Photo-Custom mode and adjust the Clarity Settings to Reality Creation-Manual, Resolution-25, and set the Sharpness to 75.
    Photo-Custom mode is amazing because it almost has no input lag!

  14. Is the de-blur on newer Tim worthington RGB boards equivalent to the ultrahdmi to the point where rgb on the framemeister is more or less the same as ultrahdmi?

  15. Let me 1st say that if Nintendo was to ever release a classic edition with 1080p support i would buy it. But for now just go get the Emulator for your PC and play these games in full real 1080P that look 1000x better then any mod you can do for your N64. Seriously a toaster of a computer can run the N64 emulator.

  16. Thanks for the info! I watched this video awhile back and decided to buy the ultrahdmi and have it modded. The N64 looks amazing on my 4K tv and as the centerpiece of my TV stand once again.

  17. 6:25: Wait, you can play composite signals through a VCR connected to a coaxial port? Can you also play coaxial signals through a VCR connected to a composite port?

  18. Well to me, emulators like project 64 and Rare Replay look WAY better than the N64 consoles, or the Virtual Console, because the 3D character models look like 3D character models, as they should. On N64 consoles and the Virtual Console, the models look so pixelated. With the anti-aliasing, they should've just stuck to 480i as the standard resolution, as shown by what the Pokemon intro you showed earlier can look like in 480i.

  19. I can appreciate how this couple found something neat they can do together, I imagine it extended the excitement Their relationship.

  20. Btw. There might be a game that doesn't use anti-ailiasing. It may sound weird, but it's Lego Racers. I used to have it for the console, but I can't remember well enough to know if it does, but you could pop it in and see if it does! If so, that's pretty neat!

  21. So, do any RGB mods support deblur? You guys mentioned in this video how they could support it, but do they? I don’t know, but I expect you guys do.

  22. Nintendo would make a killing releasing a classic console that addresses the graphics and issue with the controllers analogue stick.

  23. Honestly, why not emulate? You can play it much better than this, for a cheaper price, get a usb to n64 adapter and play

  24. I want to do an RGB mod for my N64 to connect to my PVM, but I hardly see much of a difference here. I feel like the composite output on a PVM is good enough for me.

  25. New HDMI Plug & Play adapter by EON has just been announced! Please do a review once it comes out!

  26. My gawd, that fucking intro music always gets me. Its retro, dramatic, kinda sad and upbeat at the same time, and it sounds like a Sci-Fi movie soundtrack.

  27. If only it can output the N64's native 240p and 480i signals so I can just ditch the RGB mod and get a HDMI to component cable for my JVC CRT

  28. I'm sure you ninjas know this…
    On Tim Worthington's latest RBG board for the N64 you can get a DE-BLUR switch fitted onto the side of the console. You can flick it on and off on the fly. IMO the DE-BLUR is a must have and as you said "a game changer". Its really cool that DE-BLUR isn't limited to the ultra HDMI board anymore.
    Cheers for the vids dudes – Peace

  29. Looks like all of the N64s are RGB capable these days. I wonder if Ultra HDMI is available for the NS2 consoles (NUS-CPU-05)? Also, for the next video series, may you please do a video about the Hyperkin HDTV cables for the Nintendo systems (SNES/N64/GameCube, and Wii), Sony PS1/PS2, Sega Master System/Genesis (and Nomad), and Dreamcast, and Original Xbox (you can do them one by one per system)?

  30. I notice the monster premium s video cables don’t plug into the retrotink… does anyone know how to hook this up I’m having trouble and can’t figure this out. I was thinking maybe a high end switch box to solve the problem but still even then I’m not certain on how to plug that from my n64 to the retrotink and then to my hdtv. Hope someone more knowledgeable could help!! Thanks

  31. How do you guys get RF output into your scalers? I'm planning on getting into pre-2600 consoles that only output RF video with no better quality mods available, and I've had a hard time finding any sort of converter online.

  32. It is possible to turn the built in anti-aliasing off using a game shark which not only improve image quality but also performance too.

  33. If you want a great N64 picture, but don't want to shell out a lot of money, you can buy s video cables and use them with a s-video to HDMI converter. Great way if you can't afford a framemister or oscc!

  34. Man I guess this Try4ce dude will never stop grinning in every video. 😂😂😂 Even his over the top voice won't stop either. 😂😂😂

  35. I'm definitely doing this HDMI mod.. but you guys should make an N64 part 2 video with the Mclassic to see how far the N64 can go.
