    Ok, so I have been to many sites and I see that N64 Roms are very easy to come by. I was just wondering if there was a thing that would let me play them on my real N64. Like a Supercard or something Just for the 64. Thanks

    Look up Z64 and Doctor 64.

    I have one Doctor 64, but it's like weird, keeps flickering when I boot it up.

    NeoFlash are working on one, but their release speed is very slow so don't expect it for a while.

    The Passport III lets you play import titles on you N64.
    Most of the N64 devices are very hard to come by, unless someone re-releases them or a new one.

    That Neoflash one has been "in development" for years now.

    I've got a Z64 that works great.

    This site has a list of more or less every backup copier ever made: http://home.clara.net/robwebb/backup/

    I have the Dr V64. Course, by the time I got one 2 years ago, I already played the essential N64 games back when the N64 was alive and kicking so the only thing I found myself playing on it was the obscure games that I would never buy.

    And it's a hassle trying to replacing the legit carts with other legit carts to make ONE rom work and even then, it wouldn't save unless I have a different cart used for saving.

    Mine was fine (until my Mrs stepped on it) though I usually had the odd flickering with certain TV's.

    Actually that depends on the Emulator. However, in this case, the N64 is better then the Emulator [​IMG]

    sorry, but how stupid is that? why not just buy a original n64 and the games from ebay. you get most of them for around 10 bucks and the console for around 30. a modded xbox with bigger hdd or a doctor v64 or z64 are much more expensive.
