Yeah, I was planning on using it on my AV Famicom (Which I actually purchased because of the N8)

I live in Denmark and as far as I have been told, PAL NESes can't be RGB modded.
Only problem I'm facing now is finding a AC/DC adapter for the AV Famicom that'll work here in Europe since there weren't included with the console :/

here is a good tip for you. As you are in Europe, you can easily find a sega mega drive 2 charger. it is the same with AV famicom but with one big difference. the inside is + on the sega mega drive 2, while it is - on AV famicom. so change the polarity of the tip and you are ready to go. you can cut the wire and rewire it to make - side +, and + side -.

alternatively you can use a 9 v generic charger with interchangeable plugs.

I know it sounds easy but I have little to no technical expertiese with that sort of stuff.

Is there somewhere I can just buy the finished product where I won't have to mod/solder/rewire anything?

i bought mine locally so i can't give a link.

you can buy a generic charger with 9 V, about 1 A power.

a very important thing to look for is it must be center pin negative. most chargers you can find has center pin positive, if you plug one of these to your av famicom, you will say goodbye to it.

I wouldn't really know what to look for to make sure that wouldn't happen. I'll probably just embarrass myself even more with my lack of knowledge on this subject.

Do you have link for a product that can do all those things you say and still work in a EU socket?

This'll work:

Do as reprep says and make sure your polarity is correct or your console goes boom.
Don't trust your AV Famicom's life to guesswork based on tiny plastic symbols. Buy a cheap multimeter. Set it to DC Voltage. Stick the red prong in the center and the black prong on the outside. Is the number displayed on your meter negative 9V? Good. Is it positive 9V? BOOM.

The link Grambo posted will work well. i use the nearly same thing (but with 2 socket euro plug). of course these are cheap chinese chargers and to be sure, do as Grambo says to check polarity. Mine works well, but no one can guarantee yours will too. also i bought mine at about 5 gbp locally. that is way too overpriced.

it can be plugged to your console with center pin positive or negative. look at the sign at the final plug. you can also use the same charger on your NES,SNES and sega mega drive.

Also how do you plan to fit that RGB ppu to your AV famicom? it is a really hard work to do. do you know any place which can do this? i too plan to buy one but i don't have the skill to fit the ppu to the board.

I'm still not entirely sure on how to check the polarity, neither before bying or after,
I also don't know how to change polarities. Like I said. I have no technical know-how myself.

I would prefer a EU standard plug. Those UK ones are so big and ugly :/


I have a friend that I am paying to install the PPU for me. He's kind of an expert when it comes to console modding.
I don't really know any sites that offer to mod stuff for you.

I know it's possible to buy a Everdrive NES cart including case on some shops. But does anyone sell only cases for the Everdrive for NES?

I already ordered a Everdrive NES without case.

(I'm aware that i can buy some crappy game and modify the case but i'm lazy and wondering if anyone sells premodded case only)

Hey guys!

I was just wondering: I own a completely normal and standard european nes. If i buy this cartridge, can i use it without having to make any further modifications? do i have sound and everything?

and another question to retrogate: from where do they ship? do i have to pay taxes if i order to austria?

and do i need to order a cartridge with usb port if i just want to play standard nes games?

thanks for reading!!

1* Yes, it all works. A few games may be unsoported but 99.9% work. You will need a SD card
2. From the Ukrane.
3* Shouldnt have to pay tax as its a very small item doller wise. I dont know your country but here is Australia the min is $1000 before we supposed to pay tax
4* No need for the USB port

By the way, it's MAX 75 EUR here in Turkey and when it exceeds that amount, we supposed to pay the Customs tax, yes, a HORRIBLE limit. So my question would be the following; Would Retrogate declare a lower amount for the sake of preventing the tax for its customers?
Many thanks.
