He's talking about the memory card, not actual controllers. And no, right now I don't think you can emulate controller paks usind ED64 Plus. Don't know about the official Krikkz version though.

But there are counterfeit controller paks being sold at sites like aliexpress that are cheap and functional. If you can spend money on ED64plus, you can easily buy a controller pak there too.

Did you read the whole post?
It's an alternative for anyone who is interested in using BT controllers with *emulated memory paks, aka controller pak* and rumble support, the chip cost the same as one controller pak in aliexpress and it's way more useful, the installation is very easy.
And i say it again i have been using a wii u pro controller and other BT controllers, obviously in my ed64+

Now that Krikzz has closed his store and it will likely stay closed indefinitely, is the ED 64 Plus now the best available option? And is there no flash cart in production today that will let you save your games normally without pressing reset each time?

ED64Plus is all that is left. RIP.

It's kinda too bad Krikzz didn't set up his factory in China, he could still be producing today, and he could move to any other country to live without it affecting his operations. Clones of all his products are coming out of China anyway so it's not like a China factory leaking parts and methods would change that. Then again China could start their own war at any point too...

I had a hell of a time getting WWF No Mercy to boot, it'd just sit at a black screen. Changing save type would get into the game, but of course then you couldn't save.

Eventually I read it'll work if it finds a save game, so I went over to good ol' GameFAQs and download one... but they're in DexDrive format. I figured no problem, I've used save format converters many times before for PS1/PS2 - wrong.

https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/n64/914112-wwf-no-mercy/saves

N64's complicated further by its various cartridge save formats (higher capacity meant higher cost for the devs), then certain games use the damn Controller Pak in addition. WWF No Mercy's one of the few games that uses the highest capacity option, 1MBit FlashRAM, due to its excellent customization features.

I tried various tools to convert the save but had no luck. Eventually after much hair-pulling and many dead ends, I finally found a savefile that did the trick. I figure the least I could do was lay it all out here in case anyone finds themselves having the same trouble, and finds their way here.

Here's the save: https://www.mediafire.com/file/qsjjmbbwnxq726k/WWF+No+Mercy+(USA)+(Rev+A).fla/file
It goes here: SD:/ED64P/SDSAVE

It works for either version of the (USA) ROM, but you'll want to play the fixed version, Rev A. The game infamously had a bug that would randomly wipe out all your data.

That's strange. I use my ED64 plus mostly to play WWF/WCW games and I've had no issues with saves or black screens heck I even got two VPW2 rom hacks to work (english patch and FreeM). I too am looking for a way to convert saves to the ED64 easy as it would be great for No Mercy CAWs but at last nothing.

I just got my hands on one of these earlier this week and so far i'm having a lot of fun with it, mostly trying to customize, test rom hacks, etc. Playing some games too though. I'm finding pretty damn good compatibility so far.

The one thing i'd like to figure out though is how to get my previously created saves (my save created while playing the Banjo Kazooie physical game) to show up using the cart. I was trying to dig around in the menu and figure that out, but I pretty much hit a wall. I'm hoping there is a way I can use my old save on the cart. Any one have any ideas?

    There's nothing in the rules against it, but there's a clause against "piracy in any way", which gives ample room for interpretation
