Yes there is, but the TV we used didn't support S-Video; we already explained we had to swap TV's. And (before you say it) if you convert S-Video to Scart with converter blocks and your TV doesn't support S-Video you get a black and white picture.

While I appreciate peoples comments, and I am always happy to receive criticism where constructive I do think this is just being over picky. Everyone knows that the PAL N64 picture sucks, and the removal of RGB was a really bad oversight by Nintendo. Unless anyone can find a batch of BA6596F chips and figure where they fit onto the PAL N64 then it's either a sucky PAL picture or a RGB modded NTSC console, and as Dave has already said I will be modding some JAP N64's up for Replay.

They are identical connectors but all slightly different nonetheless. As previously mentioned PAL N64 doesn't support RGB, so if you connected an RGB scart to a PAL N64 you'd either get no picture, or just composite picture depending on the cable type.

GC scarts have 100uF caps on Comp, Red, Green & Blue so if you connect one to a SNES the picture will fade to black in approximately 5 seconds.

Good spot, Joe!

For any non-360 owners, some kind soul has uploaded the feature to Youtube:

Homebrew GAMING Weekend

It's predominantly a retro gaming event, just all the games will either be homebrew or rare prototype/unreleased titles.

Though there will be some coding going on upstairs.

Great to meet so many people, although I will admit I am 100% sure to forget your name so please don’t be offended when I ask it again (probably at Replay). The set up was great and to be honest I didn’t even walk round any of the expo. I was also loving the vectrex and it has re-confirmed that I most deffinately need one to add to Hand Baked Arcade. If anyone has one (even if broken – my dad is a TV engineer!) then please let me know.

If any forum-folk are going to make it to my event in Brighton next Sunday (https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=134875826608327) then make sure you say hello. Otherwise I’m sure I will bump in to some of you at Replay.

Cheers ,Tom
