NESRGB Board Features:

  • Works with the original NES processor chip. Parts are no longer taken from Playcoice 10 arcades.
  • Outputs RGB, S-video (encoded from RGB), composite video (encoded from RGB), and composite video (original from PPU). Component can be added for additional cost
  • Compatible with PAL and NTSC consoles (jumper selectable).
  • Color palette. Three palettes available, Natural, Improved, and Garish. The Natural palette has the same colors as the original composite video output. 


Frontloader Install option Examples:

Palette switch options: (changes color palettes on screen)
-3 Position Color toggle switch usually placed at rear.
-No switch / Fixed Color palette, set to normal

Video Output Connector options:
-3D printed multiout connector SNES/N64 style. Outputs Composite,  Svideo, and RGB. Made for Toploader or Frontlaoder. Uses common SNES/N64 style cables.

Audio options:
-Improved Dual Mono Right and Left Channel. This selection has the best overall sound and customer satisfaction.
-Faux Stereo: NES CPU Channels are separated to left and right speaker. (I think dual mono sounds better)

Other Add-Ons & Features:
-Region Free upgrade (for frontloader NES)
-Check and adjust 72pin or "Blinking Light Win" replacement can be installed.  The BLW device will eliminate all future 72pin game reading issues.
