Reply To: Issues with Resident Evil 2 PAL N64


I would argue that removing the expansion pak or using a cheat device is a workaround, not a solution. Since the OSSC isn’t a scaler that can do framerate conversion, and it’s not an HDMI 2.1-compliant device with VRR+QMS support, it (simplistically) has to disconnect from the display and reconnect at a slightly different framerate (assuming you’re linedoubling 240p and 480i to 480p), and it usually takes 1 to 5 seconds (depending on the devices in your chain) to recover from a blackout like that.

Unfortunately, I think the only two methods of avoiding mode-switching blackouts with N64 games it to either 1) use a CRT or 2) use an UltraHDMI, both of which (still) have their pros and cons.
