    I never had an N64 before, I was more of a PS1/Dreamcast guy so for whatever reason never got an N64 though I've played pretty much all of the best games and like them a lot.
    Well now I'm trying to build my N64 collection but some of the games I managed to find here are US NTSC copies, like Mario 64 I can get for only 3 bucks however it's a US version.

    So, what exactly do I need to play NTSC games on a PAL N64, I need something that's 100% compatible and how hard would this device be to find nowadays? I take it an action replay or a converter of some sort would do, I had a converter for the SNES back when I was a kid and that played everything.

    But I have no idea where to buy this stuff and I can't use Paypal from my country so ebay isn't an option for me

    Why not just go the simple route and get Project64 + roms.
    Assuming you have a gamepad to use (360 controller works great).

    What's that got to do with me wanting to build a solid N64 collection, man?
    Of course I have all the ROMs and Emulator, plus I have all the N64 VC releases, but that's got nothing to do with me wanting to have a solid, retail N64 collection.

    Ah, I was going the practical route, not the "pointless waste of time" route.
