OK so I know VC games have borders in order to correct the aspect ratio but... why is there so much more black space with N64 games compared to NES/SNES games?

Question.
Do you have a HDTV?

Nope. It's an LCD I think.

I like games and anime. My favorite games include the following: Mother 1-3, Final Fantasy VI, Chrono Cross, Zelda LA-ALttP-OoT-MM-ALBW, and Super Smash Bros.

You can adjust the aspect ratio in the Wii U settings to reduce the black bars for n64 games

So I need to be in 16:9? I thought N64 games were originally in 4:3.

Yes 16:9. I am not really sure why Nintendo did that with the N64 games. Perhaps someone more technical knows why. I was having a similar problem. You can adjust in the Wii U settings and truthfully Wii U is a HD system so time to ask Santa for an HDTV this year.

The system outputs in SD it should do it properly. This is a really weird choice on Nintendo's part.

N64 games seem to look off on both the gamepad and the tv, everything seems overly dark compared to how it should look and the issues werent fixed.

i noticed some borders on the gamepad screen also at times but i imagine its because some games were 50hz

So yeah 16:9 did help. Sorta. It's still shrunk compared to SNES games, but it's a lot better than 4:3.

Looks like I'll just need to keep switching ratios. :/
