This is a compatibility list for the Swiss feature which forces games to use a different video mode than their defaults: specifically, for forcing the progressive video modes 480p and 576p. While the GameCube (and Wii) are capable of displaying these resolutions, official titles booted in the interlaced 480i (all NTSC, some PAL) or 576i (most PAL) modes. Many NTSC games are already capable of running in 480p simply by holding the B button on startup, but this feature was removed from PAL games. Thus, video mode forcing is useful for NTSC games which lack native 480p, and all of the PAL game library. 576p was not officially supported in any games: forcing this mode is the only way to enable it, and it allows many games to be played in a higher resolution than originally intended.
While the PAL GameCube supported 480p just fine in hardware (in the DOL-001 revision with Digital AV Out port), for whatever reason, the feature was removed for all PAL game releases. Where holding B on a compatible NTSC game enabled progressive output selection, for PAL this is just a 60Hz (480i) or 50Hz (576i) switch: offering players a tradeoff between framerate and resolution.
Supports all Wii display modes (NTSC 480i 480p, PAL 576i)Attention: it can't be connected to the switch/splitter, only connect directly to the TV, monitor, projectorDon't forget to go in the settings and change screen resolution from 480i to 480p. Some HDTVs do not support games at 240p/480i over HDMI: they only work through the composite A/V cords. If you switch the Wii to 480p mode they may work over HDMIThis device plugs into the A/V port on the back of the Wii.The device taps into the component video output of the A/V port, which is the highest quality the Wii outputs.The device performs an analog-to-digital conversion and outputs the digital signal via HDMI, 720x480@60Hz (EDTV 480p).The analog stereo audio is converted to Linear-PCM 16-bit 48KHz, which is very high-quality and compatible.The digital audio/video signal is sent over a connected HDMI cable to a monitor or television.After setting up the device, make sure to enter your Wii Settings and change the aspect ratio (Widescreen Settings) to 16:9 (if using a widescreen display or an HDTV), the Resolution to 480p (EDTV) (if your display supports this, all HDTVs do), and the Surround Sound Settings to Surround (Dolby Pro Logic II) for the best video and audio quality. Adjust your television to stretch the newly configured widescreen video across the screen (if using a widescreen display). Finally, if using a surround sound system, engage Dolby Pro Logic II decoding for surround effect in supported games. 2b1af7f3a8
