Known issues and quirks

The NES is known to have somewhat unstable sync. Fortunately, Marqs (creator of the OSSC) has developed a fix for the jitter. The fix also applies to the SNES.

Mods

  • NES disassembly guide.
  • Dejitter board fixes sync issues.
  • NESRGB adds composite (for Famicom and toploader), s-video, and RGB output to the NES. Can also swap between palettes.
  • Hi-def NES adds HDMI output to the NES. Also adds several scaling and post-processing options.
