    Good morning everyone. I am currently building a PS2 to N64 controller adapter but I'm having a little trouble with part of it. Basically, Rumble is a pain.

    Does anyone know of any N64 games that will visually tell you if a rumble pak is inserted into the controller?

    Thanks.

    Ocarina of Time will tell you if you have a rumble pak or not in the fishing minigame

    Where abouts is the fishing minigame? I'd have to start from the beginning...

    I think Snowboard Kids tells you what pak is inserted into each controller on the load game screen.
    I wrote a PJ64 controller plugin for my Arduino based controller adapter and pak support is indeed a pain. Could never get that working, and I couldn't pinpoint the issue. Possibly something with the timing being off as I seemed to get corrupted data when trying to read a mempak and the N64 controller interface is very picky with the timing. Anyway, I digress.

    It's in Lake Hylia kind of off to the left (through a door). I'm fairly certain that you can access it as soon as you beat the Great Deku Tree

    Snowboard kids looks like a good start. On the title screen, it says I have a rumble pak, but when starting a level, it double checks and comes back fail... more research I think.

    I think Turok 2 has it and maybe Perfect Dark.

    Smash bros. has it I'm fairly sure. However I am not sure if it visually shows it's connected.

    EDIT: Googled it and it does in fact have rumble support.
