 +====== AV Mods ======
  
 +Most pre-NES consoles offered only [[http://​en.wikipedia.org/​wiki/​Channel_3/​4_output|RF]] output, and can be difficult to modify. ​ Almost every post-NES system had a wealth of video options, most offering at least [[composite video]] output, and many easily hacked to allow [[RGB]] output, and sometimes [[S-video]]. ​ On this page you'll find the GameSX library of video hacks - some useful, some trivial, and some downright evil.  All, however, will grant you better quality images than you're seeing now.  ​
 +
 +When [[http://​wiki.dontpressstart.com/​index.php?​title=Lawrence|Lawrence]] started GameSX.com back in ~1996 there were no sources for this information online. ​ Gopher was still vying with the infant WWW as the most useful resource, and GameSX.com - originally intended to be a website for Game Station X (Lawrence'​s store) was instead a repository of knowledge gleaned from obscure sources and trial and error (mostly the latter).
