    Isn't there a cart for it or something?

    Everdrive 64 is the only one I can remember.
    It's quite pricey tho.
    100 quid or something similar.

    But it isn't a softmod, it's a complete hardware solution.

    I don't think an N64 can be softmodded. As said above, a cart like EverDrive is your only solution.

    Hmm... Interesting It looks like it runs N64 games, like, an r4 would run ds games!

    Yep.

    It's pretty much a flashcard for the N64.
    NES has the Powerpak and SNES also has a Powerpack and another flashcard.
    N64 has the Everdrive and another one.

    They all also got copyboxed but those are incredibly rare and more expensive.

    Thanks for this Information! I know now not to spend 120 dollars on a flashcard!

    It's the only solution (easiest available) to play backups on a real N64 ;p
    It's the cheapest by far.

    The funny part is that it's still a good buy for an actual gamer. How much did two or three games cost back in the day for the N64? That price you just refused. And I'm pretty sure you probably would have bought a few of those titles. New titles today still cost that much, too.

    Sure the system has depreciated in value, but even then, think of buying twenty-some games on the internet, and you can start to get that high (say $5 games with shipping). If you're just looking for a couple games, the flashcart may not be for you, but if playing games on the system is a worthwhile investment, the price isn't that obscene compared to actual one-game-one-purchase sales.

    You're right!! True dedicated gamers will buy this! Truthfully I would love to buy this! I just don't have the money too! For example, I've played banjo kazooie only once and I really want it! Also I can store all of my n64 games on the flash card too! So to me, it's definitely worth it!

    I would probably get me an Everdrive weren't it for the fact that the analog sticks of all of my controllers have been murdered by past me. Why do they get so stiff so quickly? :unsure:

    Truth be told the N64 sticks suck.... Not in how they function when they are working they are really nice. When it comes to how long they last they really are poor. I have PS1 sticks from that time period that work perfectly well and never failed. I don't have any working N64 sticks right now :( and finding good ones that are not after market junk is difficult :(

    Yes, rototorture was extremely hard on them. Hint: when playing Mario Party 1 wear gloves.

    I never played any Mario Party games until my wife demanded the one for the Wii... I enjoyed it so I picked up the ones for the GameCube and DS (DS one sucks balls for some reason....)

    Even with this my N64 sticks all broke down :( maybe that wrestling game was to blame.... Nothing like being Chris Benoit and choke slamming The Big Show lol

    The 64Drive is way better than the Everdrive 64. And yes, it is worth the money. Chinese mass-produced DS flashcarts have spoiled people into thinking that quality hardware is cheap. It isn't.
