    F-Zero: Maximum Velocity? I tried it but wasn't sure what to look for. How to test that?

    Here is btw an example of color glitch on top of the display I was able to record


    Another from worse case, whole image gets this scanline/interlacing glitch before returning to normal

    Basically the funnyplaying video stated, that the map flimmers with the counterfeit while its good on fp screens.

    Here is a video from makho on the 1 chip version. He tests frame skipping a little around the end.

    Apparently the random issue I have has been a real bug and not a faulty unit. eBay sellers have been starting to market their displays with fix to "top gray problem". Some YouTuber confirmed having the same problem as I do.

    The seller I bought my kit, which suffers from this problem, mentioned that they'd have fixed the issue but I wasn't sure at the time if they were being honest. They probably were after all. Had I known, I would have tried to find different solution than partial refund.

    I went ahead and ordered another kit from seller which claims to have fixed the problem. I'll reply back when I know if it works as it should.

    I got the 1 chip version from eBay and indeed get flickering on the F-Zero map.

    Replacing it with a Funnyplaying V2

    So is it just the cable that needs to be replaced or the screen too?

    Just the cable. I think it's the same screen.
