RGB Blaster - KRIKzz

This version from Stone Age Gamer comes with choice of Humble Bazooka 3D printed shell and a protective storage case.

Features of RGB Blaster:

  • Plug and Play RGB+Audio output for the Famicom
  • Zero lag output. The pixel stream flows synchronously with internal PPU
  • Compatible with Genesis Mini DIN 9 cables*
  • Palette modifications support**

*Cable is not included
**Use blastcfg too for palette update

RGB Blaster is not fully compatible with all Famicoms and this problem may stay unresolved.
So far we know that device doesn't work well with consoles based on PPU RP2C02B and RP2C02D-0, supposedly the same situation with all older PPU revisions prior RP2C02D.
So might be good to check yours console before ordering.
Various PPU revisions listed here:

RGB Blaster works only in pair with original NTSC PPU, any clones or modded systems will not work, unless it has very accurate PPU, clocked at stock NTSC frequency.

There is no composite video output, only RGB. Make sure your TV supports RGB via SCART input.

With regular carts sometimes you have to press reset after power on. Using a flashcart eliminates this problem.
It happens because some games begins writes to PPU instantly after power on, while RGB Blaster hardware need few more ms to wake up and be ready to work.

    I’m really happy with the RGB Blaster as someone who has already failed a NES RGB mod. I use it with my AV Famicom with HD Retrovision cables and it looks amazing on my Philips crt. Be careful if you want to use the HD Retrovision cables as there may be problems with them check Retro RGBs channel for more info. Mine seem to work just fine though. I happily recommend this to anyone who is too intimidated to try a NES RGB mod or has failed one in the past.
