Progressive Scan Mode is an option with certain Nintendo GameCube games, including Metroid Prime and Metroid Prime 2: Echoes. It allows the game to display a higher resolution image on EDTVs and HDTVs. One can only use Progressive Scan Mode if they have a TV that accepts such an input, and a Nintendo GameCube Component Video cable, which can only be obtained through ordering from Nintendo. On some TVs, activating Progressive Scan Mode will set the display image to a 16:9 widescreen format. To activate Progressive Scan Mode, the B button must be pressed and held while the GCN logo is being displayed, until prompted to activate the mode.
This game can be set to display a higher resolution image on TVs that support progressive scan mode (EDTV, HDTV).
In order to use the progressive scan mode, you need a TV that can accept this type of input (see your TV operation manual) and a Nintendo GameCube Component Video cable (available only through Nintendo. Visit www.nintendo.com or call 1-800-255-3700).
To activate the progressive scan mode, press and hold the B Button while the Nintendo GameCube logo is being displayed until the message "Display in Progressive Scan mode?" appears. Select YES to activate the mode.
Please note that on some TVs, activating the progressive scan mode will set the format of the image to a wide-screen (16:9) format.
