The N64 has had a small homebrew coding scene ever since the late 90s. We've covered some of these in the past, now we have something extra special to share. Did you know ScummVM has a Nintendo 64 port? It's hard to believe, but it exists, it even works on real hardware! It requires a bit of DIY setup to get going, but don't worry, we have freeware ROM cartridge images ready to try out along with detailed instructions. Be sure to check out our coverage on the subject using this link.

Just a small update for today. It turns out there's a Japan-only game that not only uses SRAM + battery for saving, but it also has a CIC-NUS-6103 security chip, a game that we don't actually have listed in either of our Game Save or CIC database lists. That game is the original Pocket Monsters Stadium, not to be confused with Pokemon Stadium 1 and 2 which we got in North America and other areas. You can find our updated Game Save Method List article here and the similar CIC list here.

Another new unreleased N64 game has been found and preserved online! This one is Viewpoint 2064, a followup to 1992's Viewpoint arcade game which was originally planned for a 1999 release, then delayed to 2000 and finally canceled. Many thanks to the anonymous owner and the video game preservation site Gaming Alexandria for making this all possible.

We've been doing some custodian work around the site lately, mostly just fixing typos and clarifying vague information. One article in particular which needed some updates was our Everdrive 64 article. If you haven't read it before, it can be found in Features, or using this link.

If you've been waiting for the Ultra HDMI boards to come back in stock, then the wait is over. Marshall has re-stocked them and there's a new Version 1.06 with a couple improvements made. For more information on what the Ultra HDMI Mod is, check out this page on RetroActive.be. and this page for buying it. When these were first released they went out of stock pretty quickly so hopefully Marshall has made more this time.

Happy New Year! To kick things off, we're doing something a little different. We've previously touched on the 64DD add-on console in the past, this time around we're finally reviewing a 64DD game, Doshin the Giant 1, a game that in one way or another, really does define the 64DD.

Today is the 365th day of 2016. Better known as New Year's Eve. How do we celebrate New Year's Eve on Micro-64? By putting up a new article on the Transfer Pak. I went through every English N64 game with Transfer Pak support and documented what it does. It didn't take as long as it sounds though, there's only 6 friggin games. Happy 2017!

For Christmas the GoldenEye Vault has brought out another update for GoldenEye X. The patch for GoldenEye X Version 5E can now be downloaded from our patches section. There's a lot of neat stuff added but the highlight is definitely the two single player levels that are working. Once you start the game give Silo and Frigate a try.

Holy crap it's Christmas! Yes Merry Christmas everyone and thank you so much for continuing to visit this website even if its seemed kinda dead. I'm still here don't worry and I'm going to continue keeping this website online. Now for today we have something very special for you. A new Nintendo 64 ROM is hitting the internet right now! Feast your eyes on the Dragon Sword 64 NTSC Prototype. This is a much different version of Dragon Sword 64 as you're about to see. This ROM release is courtesy of another good friend of mine, Rama!

Now for those who know Rama, he has a lot of cool N64 Prototypes. This particular ROM release was free however he wants to do a fundraiser for another N64 ROM. All the details are still being worked out but this is for a Nintendo 64 game that did not see a release anywhere in the world and there's no dump of it anywhere. A game like that was very expensive for him to purchase and he wants to recoup a portion of what he paid.
