Previous group-buys:

Round 2: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=62749
Round 1: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=61658
Round 1: ... did=179486

Detailed list of participants for each round:
(each round has its own tab)

CZroe and I are ready to start round 3. We'll just handle it through the forum the same way as before. We might also create a Facebook group. I hope to launch sometime in 2018, but I still haven't actually built a site.

Working as a team, my twin brother (CZroe) and I have performed well over 100 UltraHDMI installs and many Hi-Def NES installs. N64 fans are still desperate for UltraHDMI.

With each group-buy, we hope to satisfy another chunk of UltraHDMI demand. I don’t want to exclude anyone. If you're part of a local retro gaming group on Facebook or another forum, let them know. Let's try to get as many participants as possible this week and I'll order the kits direct from in 1 week. In a chat with UltraHDMI creator Marshall H, he told me: "Turn time is 5 weeks." It should be within 7 weeks if we consider all the shipping around. I’ll pass along any updates I get from RetroActive during the process. Until the order is sent, participants can back out and I will refund ASAP.

  • $130.00 UltraHDMI kit (required to participate)
  • $50.00 install service + extras
  • $5.00 mini-HDMI cable

If you are confident in your tools and precision soldering ability, buy the kit and install yourself. I can install for $50 and toss in some extras.
If you mess up your self-install: Another flat cable is $15. CZroe has successfully restored a few failed installation attempts that were sent to him (100% success so far).

USA Shipping:

$10 UltraHDMI kit
$20 N64 console with UltraHDMI upgrade installed + extras

If you're ordering multiples, you can save on shipping. At least four kits with extras can fit into a USPS small flat rate box. Two N64 consoles with extras will fit into a USPS medium flat rate box (no power adapter or controller).

I ship from Newnan, GA 30263 (United States). Each kit is insured @$150 and each upgraded console will be insured @$250. Signature confirmation required.

For shipping outside USA:

I will contact you before kits are ordered to work out the cost of shipping.
I can also try to obtain an N64 locally to pass on at-cost so it will not be necessary to ship a console internationally both ways.

Extras included with install service:

  1. In-game reset feature: Allows you to reset the system with a button combination. Older UltraHDMI installs cannot get IGR by simply updating to 1.06+ fw. An internal wire must connect to the reset button.
  2. 3D-printed cartridge tray for NTSC systems: Allows North American N64 to fit and play Japanese games with 100% compatibility, or vice-versa. Your original unmodified cartridge tray will also be returned.
  3. Custom power LED color: Choose green, blue, yellow, white, or original red.

Each UltraHDMI kit or installed system will be tested before packing and shipping. The latest firmware will be installed (currently 1.07A). If you order a kit with no install, it will be shipped as soon as I receive and test them. If you get install service, I’ll process the list of participants in order from first to last. For installs, send only the console. I don’t need the controller, power supply, or anything else. If I receive your N64 before the kits arrive, I will have it prepped and ready. If RetroActive can send the flat cables first, I might even have the soldering part done before the UltraHDMI boards arrive.

After performing dozens of these installs, I am confident I can install / test / pack / ship 5 systems per day.

To participate:

  1. Shoot me a PM or email Image.
  2. Tell me if you’re interested in kit+install or just the kit.
  3. Tell me if you want a mini HDMI cable.
  4. Tell me your name and return address.

I will provide my mobile phone number, street address, and email.

I’ll keep a public list of participants here:
Make sure you're looking at the "Round 3" tab.

The group buy is open until I submit the order next week. Then I will post each status update in this thread.

If anyone hasn't paid at least $130 for the kit at the time an order is submitted, I'll move you to the next order.

IF YOU DON'T GET IN ON ROUND 3 BEFORE THE ORDER IS SUBMITTED: Contact me anyway! I'll put you on the list for the next round.
