Extracting N64 ROMs for make them usable on N64 emuators requires U8 Tool by @HowardC and some tools for uncompress the ROM if the file is "romc" instead of "rom".

For get the HowardC's U8 Tool, download from this reupload by @gburgue: https://gbatemp.net/download/howardc-tools.35087/
For get the romc Type 1 decompressor made by @jurai, go here: https://gbatemp.net/download/romc-type-1-compressor-decompressor.37115/
For get the romc Type 2 decompressor made by @hcs, go here: http://hcs64.com/files/romchu06.zip

For extract a N64 ROM, extract the WAD with wwPacker (download link), then extract the 00000005.app file with HowardC's U8 Tool.
Then see if the ROM file is named "rom" or "romc", then follow these steps depending of the type of VC ROM you got:
  • rom: Just take the ROM, rename the "rom" file to rom.z64 or rom.n64, start the game with your favorite N64 emulator and enjoy!
  • romc Type 1: For uncompress "romc" file in Type 1, use @jurai's romc decompressor, in the CMD, with this command: romc.exe d romc rom.z64 Once uncompressed the ROM, start the game with your favorite N64 emulator and enjoy!
  • romc Type 2: For uncompress "romc" file in Type 2, use @hcs's romc Type 2 decompressor, in the CMD, with this command: romchu.exe romc rom.z64 Once uncompressed the ROM, start the game with your favorite N64 emulator and enjoy!
Hope this help you :D
