Default Nintendo 64 RGB

I live in the UK and have a PAL N64 but unfortunately we were deprived of rgb connectivity in the uk for this console. Does anyone here know if a uk n64 console has been successfully modded to run under rgb and not crappy composite?

Reason for this is I'm a huge fan of the console and still love playing it but although composite is useable on a old tube tv it looks like ass on my LCD tv.

I do use emulators but most times I prefer to use the real thing.

I have thought of buying a NTSC n64 but I don't know if there is any way of using my pal games on another region machine and I'd rather not buy them all again as I have quite a large collection.

Thanks for any replies

It is doubtful that the pal cartridges would work in a ntsc n64 console.

It's very easy with the right adapter.

Emulator man. Emulator

I bought a N64 to USB adaptor a few months ago and it works great. I wanted to play the old Zelda 64 games but didn't want to lug around my console and games. So I found Project64 and obtained the games and used my old N64 controller and it worked great

Does that emulator (or any others?) have mouse analog stick emulation? I'd love to play 007 with a mouse. I remember how cool the game was back in the day but I can't stand playing an FPS with an analog stick.

You will get a better graphical experience BY FAR if you download Project64 + ROMS (it's not illegal if you own the games) are run it off your computer with a wireless controller (XBOX360 wireless controller for PC does the job quite nicely) at 1080p w/ 8xAA. N64 Emulation is nearly perfect these days so just about every game is compatible.

Don't get me wrong I love using emu's and I do use project64 but I'd prefer to use my n64 console.

Any ideas on modding then?
