QuoteDid you try using your US N64 with the same modification on the same monitor aswell?
QuoteIf you can I would love to know what CPU revision this Japanese N64 is - its printed just behind the cartridge slot on the motherboard. Also, if you dont mind could you tell me all/part of the serial number?
QuoteLastly, do you have any pictures of the AV lines on the back of the board?
Quoteeither somethings different with your consoles sync line (or similar) thats giving it a higher gain, or that you just have a much more tolerant TV/ monitor (But if you have tried the same monitor with both a US and Japanese RGB modded console there must be a difference!)
QuoteI cant quite make it out from the picture, but did you lift the legs of the chip off the board, or just leave them down?
QuoteSO is it safe to say a Japanese N64 with amplifier is best with this mod?

Quote from: marqs on June 11, 2008, 04:03:13 AMI tried to find this information too a few years ago. I looked at my notes and it seems that according to my findings NUJ13319819 is the last confirmed jap unit which can be modded (seems to be on Link83's list too).On the US consoles, I have a cpu rev4 unit (NS13671877), which has great picture with legs lifted up . I first tried the internal amp, which caused interference, but with this method there's none and the brightness is just right. The sync signal seems to be a bit weak though: my projector doesn't sync right with ntsc-games (the unit has both PIFs) and even on my old trusty crt tv it takes a few seconds after powering to lock the sync. I've tried to buffer it with LM1881 but it didn't help
Quote from: Link83 on June 12, 2008, 01:34:36 AMI hope you dont mind that I added your serial number to my list along with your CPU revision number (Although I think your serial may be missing a digit?)Do you have anymore information/serials to help add to my list?I tried lifting the legs on my revision 4 but it didnt help I dont suppose you have a picture of the AV ouput lines on your N64 motherboard? (To see if its missing the sync components)

Quote from: Jon8RFC on May 27, 2009, 02:38:09 PMThis is a USA N64:NUS-001, NS153195134, VDC-NUS A, NUS-CPU-04I don't know if it matters, but my VDC-NUS has what looks like a double-space followed by an A. I haven't attempted an RGB mod, but wanted to add my serial number info to the list.This is a JPN N64 which has been RGB modded:NUS-001 (although below this, is also printed NUS-002), NUJ10961070, VDC-NUS, NUS-CPU-02
Quote from: Piratero on July 30, 2009, 02:52:09 PMOne thing is that if you need CSYNC and if you have a NUS-CPU-004 (or later), you'll also need to strip CSYNC from CBVS. If you have a NUS-CPU-003, CSYNC is right there.

If you have a NUS-CPU-003, CSYNC is right there.I bet that's the main thing I need to know then. I am using a NUS-CPU-004, so can you detail what exactly I do for this? I'm assuming (or hoping) I just solder a wire from wherever the CVBS stuff is to the output pin for CSYNC.
