Is the Dr. Mario 64 ROM very different from other N64 ROMs?

    Dr. Mario 64 has a huge graphic problem on many emulators, and gives me a black screen when injected into a N64 VC wad.

    N64 is a bitch to emulate, so minor differences in ROM size, ect... can cause big problems.

    This is because certain games use different OPcodes for example Zelda OOT and super mario 64 use different OPcodes so the emulators located in their respective vc wad is coded different another example is Doom64 can be injected into super mario 64 but doesn't go past press start it just freeze's

    Any game that might have similar OPcode with DM64? I tried Kirby 64(in Kirby Dream Collection), and Sin&Punishment.(Both US)
    MK64 works with Kirby 64.

    I tried them all couldn't get one to operate the farthest I got was with SM64 it asked me to insert a memory card then it freezes and unless you delete the save off the wii it doesn't boot up again
