Default EverDrive 64 v3

http://shop.retrogate.com/EverDrive-64-v3-ED64V3.htm


I just received email confirmation that my EverDrive should be here on the 29th. I have an USB TV tuner adapter that I plan on testing with it so that I can take screen captures, and videos.


If anyone needs any reference pics, or videos don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to fill their request.

Do you have any recommendations on input ?

I'm planing on modding my N64 to HDMI, but until that happens are there good alternatives for a decent input solution?

the clearest video output at the moment is RGB which requires a mod to the console, but aside from that, the native s-video output is very close in quality to RGB (however the s-video quality varies depending on which motherboard revision your console has)

yeah i plan to get the hdmi mod too

Oh. then what does the 's' stand for
Superman64-video?

Either way, EverDrive 64 at its very peak best, is a copy model off what the 64drive has been doing right.

I think mine might have that. Even with S-Video the image is pretty poor and not even steady.

Unfortunately I found out about the 64drive after.

Are you sure that the 64drive was in production before the Everdrive64 ? I think its Russian, so in Soviet Russia EverDrive64 crushes 64drive.

What's his name...Krukkz or w/e, can't remember.

Took over the N64 dextrose.com name and made it redirect to something else. Although, you probably don't even know what Dextrose is since I stopped seeing it online about 2008, so if you're confused then oh well.

Regardless, if you stuck around on the right info channels, you'd hear all about the poor design choices and anti-common-sense of the engineering put into the Everdrive. Haven't heard much about v3, but last I checked pplz are being ripped off.

Not that it matters to me anyway since I'm too unequipped and piss-poor to get either one, and the last thing I'd want is to buy a 64drive, Everdrive whatever just to show off some touchscreen / menu / PS1 or other interface and how rich I am to my friends or whatever. Only reason I'd really like one is for reverse-engineering, a task which nobody in possession of these devices seems to care about properly doing. Not once has the RSP been near 70% reverse-engineered, not by bpoint and not recently--only by zilmar.
