I finished the June 23 emails just now. I only got the street part of your address, so I calculated the total assuming you are in USA.

Thank you for the reply! I emailed back with the correct address and a question I had. Aside from that and as far as payments go, how will you know that I was the one who sent the money??

Does the name on the PayPal account match your name and shipping info that you gave him in the email? If not, follow up with the payment confirmation. I chose goods and services when I sent the payment. It sent my address to him in PayPal so everything matched. I also took a screenshot and replied to his email with him and confirmed payment.

Divines be praised I found this thread! I was reading up on people's experiences with the retrotink vs the koryuu+ossc because I just found out my N64 is incompatible with the easy RGB mod. Then I backed out of that thread and found this! I ordered a wiidual too so this would totally complete my retro setup! (all two consoles in it)

Will the DAC module still support composite and s-video? I'm not gonna be using those myself, just curious. What I would be using is line doubled RGBHV since I'm using a CRT computer monitor. :)

Usually the name or the notes will make it obvious. I suggest including a note with the name you provided for the public list of participants.

Through all the rounds, there have been two or three payments that required some investigation to determine which participant to associate it with. It's good to have a note with the transaction.

[edit]

Yours is received!

So once you've responded and we've sent a payment, would it be a good idea to go ahead and send you our N64s or do we wait until the units come in?

I would expect the wait is probably going to be over a year, it's already been longer than that for some on this round. So unless you want to go that long without your N64, I would just keep it until the kit comes in, and join the rest of us following this thread [SMILING FACE WITH SMILING EYES]

I received an N64 today that I will need to investigate to determine who it belongs to. The box + packing tape + shipping label all have "eBay" branding, but the console serial number doesn't match the one I was told to expect from eBay. The tracking number indicates it started moving July 1 in Pennsylvania. No controller. No power supply. No jumper/expansion pak. No AV cord.

Sender name: B- U-
Serial number: NS1-----142

[edit] Figured it out. This one belongs to Jensine. [/edit]

Good info and thanks for sharing the pictures. I'm looking forward to keeping one my favorite systems forward-compatible with TV connections.

Side note, since others may see this and buy one of these, too. Are you comfortable doing the WiiDual installation? I pre-ordered one of those and these are the installation instructions.


My brother and I have done a handful of WiiDual installs (finishing up another one shortly). Hopefully I'll have time to set up WeStillPlay.com in the near future to offer services there.

Yes. In previous rounds I've had to investigate a couple payments to figure out who it came from. If the name or email address doesn't match one that I've corresponded with, it helps to have a note on the payment or send me an email right after.

Yes. Composite and S-video output should continue to work as it did before.

Yup! We got in touch yesterday.

To minimize the amount of time spent without your N64, I suggest waiting to send it. I usually get a heads-up from Marshall before he finishes programming / testing / packing / shipping the kits. At that point I'll contact participants to let them know it's time to send.

Some people send the N64 early anyway. I test it and disassemble so it's ready to be upgraded when the kits arrive.

This was the most recent update from Marshall:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=63381&p=1415445#p1415445

Marshall should now have both of the small batches he did in China (close to 250 units). Marshall has to modify all the secondary (analog) flex PCBs using a hole punch due to a production issue. Then he also needs to put finishing touches on the firmware before programming and testing all the boards. After that, it's just packing and shipping.

If Marshall is not ready to start a full-size production batch in Taiwan very soon after, I will try to convince him to do another batch in China and keep things moving.

This is awesome news! I'm absolutely stoked that we're so close, 250 units should have a lot of us on round seven covered. Thanks so much for updating us, Ichinisan.

Once we have shipping notification I imagine most of us are going to be over the freaking MOON.

If you look at the spread sheet, 250 will not even cover the first half of round seven, there are several people earlier in the list that have bought 20 and 30, even 100. Unless they do a 2nd round in china, its gonna be a while still for the majority of us
