Frankly, with a price hike that high for the NSO Expansion Pack, Nintendo could still throw in Game Gear/Master System and PC Engine stuff in there for nothing all while still pleasing the third-parties with those licensing fees.

I like the idea of having those systems and I would definitely play them, but I need more Nintendo systems.

If you were offered a job by the nintendo ninjas, would you go to NERD or just game development

Honestly I'd go the emulation and preservation route so NERD

How do I make my own Project 64 Plugin?

Well I dunno I never made one, gotta look at existing code to figure it out

Anonymous Coward asked 19 days ago
Is it possible that you could borrow code from the Time Travel Project on Sourceforge for a new feature in Project 64?

I don't think I wanna use code from someone who says the CIA and NSA have been going after him

You think there's more beneath the surface for the NSO update in October beyond what was announced already?

Gonna take a wild guess and assume that Imagineer and Edia (who own Telenet Japan's IP) is going to be the City Connection of the N64 NSO lineup and the Genesis/Mega Drive NSO lineup respectively.

Nah Jaleco (City Connection) is kinda legit

Wait, there's region locking on NSO? And just for Magical Drop2?

Yup, Magical Drop2 is hidden in Korea for some reason.

Looking at your Mario Party page, do you think if there was a retail European 64DD, it would be the same as the Japanese model except ofc being translated? You seem to suggest that units from both regions appear identical to games that check for them

No, I looked at the gigaleak, it wouldn't be the same as a japanese 64DD. It would have been a seperate region entirely.

First off, I wanted to thank you for all your hardwork in both Satellaview and 64DD scenes. It's been amazing to see this obscure stuff come to life. As for my question, would you ever consider looking into Mario Party 1's 64DD connectivity?

No problem, I don't think I'll stop. For Mario Party 1: I already figured out the 64DD support, it loads an executable and reboots through it, so there's really not much I can do from there I'm afraid.

I was wondering if we can host our own Satellaview content online like how it was done some time ago, where I remember taking part in the BS F-Zero Grand Prix (albeit without the music and commentary.)

For now that's not implemented, I'm mostly waiting for more research to be done.

I bought a couple of 64DD disks, and two gave error 23, which is a disk read error as far as I can find. Any way I can try to repair them? And will it ever be possible to rewrite broken disks, or are stock 64DD not capable of doing so?

I have broken disks too and I was never able to rewrite them, unfortunately.

Do you believe Sony is a cheapskate?

I think Sony is trying too much on the blockbuster side of things, I think they spend too much on games and it's not going to sustain.

I noticed something on a mario wiki and it has vandalism created by someone named Luigiblood.

I don't talk much about it to avoid that piece of shit to get attention.

How do I make Randnet internet packers?how do I start?

Learn basic CISCO modem stuff, then PPP, CHAP, IPCP, and other protocols. I give you some keywords to search, but if you don't know basic programming either you're not going to be able to do anything.

Hi, I recently started my 64DD collection, but a lot of the disk labels seem to be peeling. It’s not a big deal as I plan to reapply them with some rubber cement, but is this something you’ve noticed with 64DD disks yourself?

The labels on mine do kinda peel off from the middle if that's what you're talking about, but I never really did anything about it and I just felt like it was sorta done by hand sloppily?
