Important – This kit 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).
The kit consists of a Cyclone 10 FPGA based main board and two flex cables with filters (one for the N64 PPU and one for the multi-out) as well as a set of mounting nuts, bolts and washers. The dual flex configuration 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)
Please note that installing this modification requires soldering skills. Do NOT order this kit until you have read ALL of the fitting instructions and feel confident with carrying out the installation. Some community based support may be available in our forums but we CANNOT offer technical support with DIY fittings nor can we give refunds on components that have been damaged or destroyed due to incorrect use or failed installation attempts.

Please pay attention to the jumper configuration on the board when choosing your RGB cable. If you opt to leave composite video from the N64 on pin 9 of the multi-out, you must use a csync (clean sync) RGB SCART cable which takes sync from pin 3.
