Available now (handled by our partners BetaGamma Computing in Greece) Please allow for shipping and processing delays due to Covid 19. Please note that we can no longer accept mod/repair orders from UK customers (except NI).
Important – This mod was originally sold by us as “V2” to differentiate it from the first version as sold by some of our competitors. However, Borti has since used V2 to refer to an in-development new revision of this mod, so we’re removing the V2 moniker from our product pages.
This is it! The very best RGB output possible for ANY Nintendo 64 console. Developed, tested and prototyped in cooperation with both Borti4938 and BetaGamma Computing, this mod delivers the absolute pinnacle of analogue RGB quality from ANY N64 console (not just early Japanese models).
Purchase this service and ship us your N64 console and we will supply and fit the N64 advanced (ultimate) RGB mod. Our kits use the FPGA based main board and two flex cables with filters (one for the N64 PPU and one for the multi-out). This ensures the absolute cleanest, neatest installation possible while eliminating any RGB video noise. The resulting output is completely crisp and clean, easily surpassing all earlier N64 RGB mods, you may even mistake it for the seemingly never-in-stock HDMI mod.
That’s not all, by holding down the left and right shoulder buttons, right on the d-pad and right on the yellow buttons you can access a whole range of advanced features, some of which are listed below.
- Line doubling – Choose between 240p (standard) or 480p (line doubled) output. Note that most TVs SCART sockets will only accept 240p or 480i signals (yes, even HDTVs)
- Scanlines – Add scanlines to the line doubled output
- Output format – Choose between RGB or component video
- Deblur – Removes N64 dithering or blurring
- 15 bit mode – Reduces colour depth to reduce image noise in games like Starfox
- In game reset – Great for flash cart users
- Firmware updatable (requires a JTAG programmer)

Unless you explicitly tell us otherwise, we will configure the mod to output properly attenuated, 75OHM 0.3V composite sync on both pin 7 (composite video) and pin 3 (composite sync). That means you can use a standard, composite video for sync NTSC SNES RGB cable and get the best results. Note that installing the mod this way disables composite video output.
If you use a SNES CYSNC (also sometimes called clean sync, pure sync, clean composite sync etc) cable, you will need to make sure that there’s no attenuation resistor added to the cable as the consoles output is already properly attenuated.
If you already have an RGB SCART cable you wish to use with your modified console, we recommend that you include it with your console so that we can check it for compatibility and configure the mod correctly for you.
