    I want to play SM64 hack games like Star road and Green star.
    But those hack games doesn't work and says "Invalid ROM type".
    What can I do?
    P.S.
    Sorry for bad language, because i'm Japanese and i didn't learn enough about English language

    Not64 is the best N64 emulator for Wii, but is not a very good N64 emulator compared to what is on PC. It is possible that Not64 cannot handle ROM hacks at all.

    Rom hacks arent made for real hardware emulator, theyre built around emulators that have better spec than hardware. (Example rom size, ram etc)

    Theoretically and rom hacks built to work on ED64 etc should work on these emulators without much issue, but dont expect massive hacks to work well.
