Hooking my N64 up to my 226BW

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
As the title states. How can I do this? I will assume I will need an adapter of some sort.

If an adapter exists, does it take away with the smoothness of the game? (graphics are obviously not very demanding...)

I think you could need a composite --> VGA or DVI adapter.

Ok, I was looking around and People seem to think the quality is bad. Can anyone confirm this?

Well it's old low end TV resolution being stretched out onto an LCD which prefers to run widescreen at its native resolution.


It will look pretty harsh.

If you just want to play N64 games on your PC/monitor you can download Project64 which is a superb N64 emulator. The games play/look spot on.

You could also get a PCI tv tuner card, they have yrw connectors on them, you could hook your 64 into that and play through your monitor!

Or purchase a N64 controller -> USB convertor. Use the emulator and your controller.
