Why are you going mate?andyk2003 wrote:As a final thought, I have to say that after a few days I'm increasingly preferring my CRTs more. While I still think this mod is awesome, the vibrant, natural colours, deep blacks and just the way the graphics are represented on the CRT just floor me every time...
I'm really glad I have the mod for a potential future backup situation though - but it's CRTs all the way for me personally I think....
I have to permanently leave the forum now so thanks for having me and so long guys
It really comes down if you want to play N64 on your HDTV and not have an extra CRT. I'm not a fan of the scanlines either but that's because they are not subtle enough. There's still going to be updates to the software so I hope Marshall adds some more transparency to the scanlines. I don't play any games with de-blur on either. Then again I'm also sitting only 7 feet away from a 60". People complain that the N64 graphics were muddy but then once removed it's too pixelated. It just doesn't have high enough resolution textures and that doesn't translate well. I tried out Rogue Squadron which runs at a full 480p and it looks great on an HDTV. It's too bad that most of the other games don't. I also played Mario Party with some friends the other day and it's much easier to read the text in the game. The normal A/V out works at the same time so was switching back and forth. My friends preferred HDMI.Turok81 wrote:I'm still on the fence about getting one. I've spent way too much analyzing videos on YT, and I'm honestly not that impressed by the look of de-blur and the extra sharpening, which seems to be the main selling point. It's a matter of personal taste but the heavy pixelation is just detrimental to the look of the games, in my opinion. I don't really like the look of the artificial scanlines either. What I'm wondering is if it's still worth getting even if I don't use any of the filters.
