Release Wii native VGA - version 1.4

    Hi. I have installed the VGA priiloader patch but I am not getting any sync on my screen at all. I reconnected composite and saw that in the settings editor GUI the video output was set to 480p video. The Wii works just fine in composite when connected and boots to the settings editor GUI. Here is some pictures of my wiring. I checked continuity of all of my wiring and everything is connected correctly. I haven't grounded any of the RGB signals but I have a ground wire running from the Wii to ground on my screen driver board.

    Is there any way I can check that VGA priiloader was installed successfully?

    Make sure you haven't flipped hsync and vsync. I remember that some vga screns from china have swapped labels

    I have checked both and I'm still not getting a signal. Could it be software related?

    My screen and driver board are the following Dalian models. The silkscreeen for the keyboard screen controls was reversed so I am wondering whether the pinout for VGA is also reversed as well...

    Try redoing the sync soldering on the ave, especially the VSync, it looks a bit flimsy

    I re-did the wiring and checked continuity from the top of the pins rather than the wires and they're connected well. There's no shorts on either side of the pins either... :/

    When you say that composite works fine you mean by disconnecting the mode pin from 3.3V, right? Because otherwise the issue could be there

    I definitely bridged the mode sense line and 3.3v when reconnecting RGBHV. Shouldn't the Wii default to postloader on startup and not the settings editor GUI? That's what's happening right now. Maybe I should reinstall postloader from priiloader with my composite cable?

    I have joined the VGA club! Aurelio, you're a legend. Thank you for making this possible. Reinstalling the correct version of postloader worked beautifully. The screen looks gorgeous!

    Thank you for your hard work. I'm super pleased.

    Would it be possible to do this mod without a component cable to select 480p in system menu?

    You can connect the component Y signal to a composite port and short mode to 3.3v to get a black and white video output

    Thanks! I actually thought of that right after posting that. I just didn't know if i needed to short mode or not.

    Hey Guys,
    I am actually having a problem with testing my VGA install. I am currently waiting for my screen for my portable to come in and have been trying to test this with my tv in my room. I am currently getting a weird image on screen when I boot my console. I've been soldering a 15pin female dsub to my board for testing and those connections are unshielded, then i am plugging a vga cable from there to my tv. Is my issue because i'm using unshielded wires? Or what?

    It might be your TV not supporting the resolution of the Wii. Can you try on another screen?

    Nevermind I figured it out. I had to plug it into my pc monitor and change it to 480p

    I recently brought out my old Wii to start speedrunning Ocarina of Time. With only an hd tv and benq monitor I thought my only options were some type of analog to digital converter. I tried 2 different AV to hdmi converters and a Wii2Hdmi, none of these options offered a decent enough picture and introduced noticeable delay which is not ideal for speedrunning. Looking for other options I came across this thread and remembered that my benq rl series monitor could support VGA. I must have ran into every single issue possible while attempting this but it was all solved in the thread replies already! Finally finished and hooked up to the VGA port on the benq, the picture is incredible. The clarity, depth and colors are amazing. No delay at all. This mod is incredible and exceeds what I thought was possible with my set up. Thank you so much for releasing this and for the hard work.

    You must enable 480p from the system menu, not from settings editor gui
