Friends, it just keeps happening. Another high profile unreleased N64 game has been publicly dumped online for all to enjoy, this time it is Doubutsu Banchou, aka Animal Leader and in the USA as Cubivore. This game was in development for 64DD, then converted to N64 cartridge, before being cancelled and ported over to the GameCube and finally released. The prototype is of a nearly finished build of the N64 cartridge version. Many thanks to our good friends at Nesworld.com, Marshall of Retroactive.be, Olivieryuyu of Team CARROT and Baker64 for making this all possible. Check out nesworld's article for more detailed coverage and the rom link.

For those wanting to try out Doubutsu Banchou / Cubivore 64 on flash carts, the game uses 1Mbit flash. In the Everdrive 64, add "0xEB85EBC9=5" to the save_db.txt file on your SD card, or force saving to flash. If using an ED64Plus, there is no save_db.txt file so you'll have to force saving to flash before starting the game. The official ED64Plus firmware is recommended.

In today's update, we take a look at another interesting N64 controller. This time it's the Interact Super Pad 64 Plus. It goes by a couple other names such as the MakoPad 64, but its unique shape is instantly recognizeable even if you don't remember the name. Check out our article on the Super Pad 64 Plus using this link.

Friends, today is a historic day. A December 1 2000 build of Dinosaur Planet, Rareware's long lost final N64 game, has been leaked online! Many thanks to Forest of Illusion for making this dream a reality!

For everyone looking to play Dinosaur Planet on flash carts, the game uses 1Mbit flash. In the Everdrive 64, either force saving to Flash or add "NDPE=5" to your save_db.txt file. For ED64Plus users, force saving to Flash in the official firmware (Alt64 doesn't seem to work with Dinosaur Planet).

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.
