Also can I remind everyone that 330i does not exist.

The N64 ALWAYS outputs 640x480/576i @ 30/25hz via 2 fields of 640x240/288 @ 60/50hz

Now, games can have any frame size they want and the VI will stretch/squash to fit the output.

What most games do however is output 240/288p, now this is possible because of the 2 fields of 640x240/288 and telling the VI not to switch fields. (stretching vertically is done by the TV and not the VI)

So, in the case of the 440x330 framebuffer this is output at 640x240p (no field switching) meaning it is stretched horizontally and squished vertically (before being re-stretched by the TV).

The 640x480i patch uses a 640x480 frame and outputs both 240 fields (interlaced) giving pixel perfect output.

Trevor do you think there is some way to run a game at 480p if the N64 has the Ultra HDMI mod?

The only unfortunate aspect to the Ultra HDMI is it lacks proper deinterlacing. I'm not sure why this is but I assume there was a good reason. 480i still looks much nicer than anything lower, but there is always combing.

I'd love to get this going in Gauntlet Legends!

Well, the VI is only capable of outputting a 9.216Mhz (193.536 Mbits/s to the DAC) signal so no, its stuck at 640x240/288 @60/50hz.
To output 480/576p it would need to do 18.432Mhz

If you replaced the VI clock generator I dare say it might be possible, but that would need a better answer from MrKane, ebd or saturnu.


Since the UHDMI attaches to the output of the VI (Part of the RCP chip) it receives the same signal the DAC gets.

I'm trying to get the hi-res version of Goldeneye working properly on 1964 0.8.5. I can only seem to get as far as the start mission page and then things so south from there. Music is on but black screen only.


Based on the conversations that people are having in this thread alone, its safe to say that I haven't got a clue what you guys are talking about and am a total noob, lol. Just trying to get this up and running as seemlesly as possible.

I've searched around but did not much in the way of any thread that references specific settings in 1964/PJ64 for Goldeneye. I'm not sure if I am even using the correct version of 1964. Plugin I am using is "Unofficial DaedalusD3D8 0.08 Rel. 3". Not ever sure if that is the right one to use either, lol. Any help is greatly appreciated.

This mod is for real hardware only. It doesn't affect emulators aside of smaller HUD, and it may cause other issues.

Get the 1964 bundle from here and use the default settings or Glide64 'Final' if your PC is capable of running it. - http://www.shootersforever.com/forums_message_boards/viewtopic.php?t=7045

EDIT

Thank you Graslu,

Got it working great with that package you directed me to. Couple questions though.... Should I just be using stock Goldeneye U rom? I have a hi-res version og Goldeneye from Subdrag that I had to create from a .dat file I believe. (it was a bit ago when I did it) When I play that version I have slow down issues. Also there does not seem to be any noticable change in graphics/textures etc. Just wondering if I am getting the best quality/performance with this or am I missing anything else.

Thank you again for the reply and help. Much appreciated.
