Games That Display Black Bars on 4:3 Screens

Posted by n64rocks (Members) at May 24 2018, 03:17 AM. 8 comments

I'm currently using a 4:3 TV just like what the Nintendo 64's games were designed to be used on, yet I am finding many games still show black bars on the sides?! I thought this problem was only supposed to be from using 16:9 or other aspect ratio TVs, not on a 4:3!

I know some early games like Pilotwings (1997) did not fill the whole screen, but I see it still persists on later games. For example RUSH 2049 from 2000 still has vertical bars on the left and right side! And yet some games like Quake 2 or Goldeneye have no such problem and fill the whole screen. What is the cause of this incosistency?

Bang&Olufsen MX 4002 - a perfect CRT for N64

Posted by italia64 (Senior Members) at May 12 2018, 10:47 AM. One comment

Hi guys

I wanted to share with you my very positive experience with this TV that I have bought to play with N64.

Design of both TV and remote control is aged very good, materials are high quality and very well assembled. And, most important, the image is superb.
Forget about Ultra HDMI, that's just a compromise once you saw how great N64 looks on this kind of TVs.
Colors are vivid and brilliant, blacks are intense (better than Trinitron ones I was used to), and the image is so clear that many games that look a bit blurry on normal TVs are perfectly detailed here (Ocarina and Majora really benefit of this screen).
Sound is crystal clear and the best I ever heard on CRT.

I strongly suggest it to all of you.

These pics don't give justice to the images quality, as take photographs of a light source is tricky. But you can appreciate its design.

Memory Pak vs Passwords

Posted by Kobeskillz (Established Members) at May 4 2018, 11:54 PM. 13 comments

I have like 3 official memory paks and I have trouble with all of them! They will save and then once in a while I get the repair message and Iíve lost tons of data already a few times.

I mean gesh Turok 2!!! Some tedious games.

I love me some doom and quake 1/2 cause you can save via memory card and password so when I lost my data I was super happy I had written down those passwords.

Also n64 memory cards are battery ran so they will eventually die.

If 3rd parties were too cheap to use battery save then I wish passwords would have been used in conjunction with ge crappy memory pak.
