LOST PALFIXES
Seems like I owe someone an apology, slave, these fixes have been lying in my mailbox for atleast half a month before I noticed that something had to be wrong with my ISP's mail setup, cause you see I get an SMS on my cellular phone everytime a mail hits my mailbox, only nothing have happened the last 15-20 days. Well here they are, better late than.... ;)

MORE FROM THE MAILBOX
Paul Sockets sent me his "how to fix your V64jr 512" PDF file same say as it was up at Dextrose. Those of you who wanted it have probably already downloaded it elsewhere, but here it is anyway in case someone missed it.

Someone (CrowKiller?) sent in this N64 controller port pinout.

11-21-2000 Banjo-Tooie Nintendo USA mnc-btoo.zip 256mbit

Banjo Tooie has been rumored to be 512mbit until a few days ago when a preview appeared on nintendo.com informing that it actually was only 256mbit. I guess Z64/CD64/V64 owners were lucky this time, but we'll see what size the next kickass game is, Conker's Bad Fur Day.

CORRECTION REGARDING ZELDA: MM (PAL) RELEASE
I've spoken to people dealing with the rom and the real story goes like this. Menace' supplier uploaded the rom to an FTP or web page where Menace' members could download it. Others might have found the page or been told where to get it. Therefore the rom dump may have been spread without being packed and released by Menace and claimed to be the real release. The rumored first release was never official and I apologize to Menace for stating that the release actually wasn't theirs when the fact is that is was.

EUROPE GOES GOLD
Atleast when it comes to Zelda: Majora's Mask. Nintendo of Europe finally decided to coat a European N64 Zelda release in gold. Unfortunately they decided not to use the same type of label as the US version, although the one they picked isn't that bad either, atleast compared to the old and boring black label on Ocarina of Time.

11-13-2000 Tom and Jerry: Fists of Furry New Kid Co. USA mnc-fist.zip 96mbit

I'm aware that Menace actually didnt get the Zelda release, an independant release was out first, but because it uses a non 8.3 filename (z64c-Zelda2PAL.zip) and because it wasn't spread very well (independant releases mostly arent), I've decided to use the Menace filename in my release list. Also since the guy who released the independant release gave his rom to Menace anyway, well you get the idea.

MIDWAY GREATEST ARCADE HITS 1 RESIZE PATCH
(taken from the menace nfo) Due to a bug in the bios of the Z64, it dumps games that are really 32mbit as 64mbit with two copies of the rom. Here's the patch to resize the rom to its true size.

TIGGER'S HONEY HUNT PALFIX
Arrid brings us another palfix. Not much else to say I guess, so have fun PAL users. Oh yeah, if anyone feels like making a sound fix for Mickey's Speedway, feel free to do so. There's no need for the video part since PALadin does that quite well.

Click here to download.

MICKEY'S SPEEDWAY 4K EEPROM
Well I decided to give it a go, the game is not that bad, but sure not in the same league as Mario Kart 64 or Diddy Kong Racing 64. Anyway I've unlocked a few things, which are:

Drivers: Hewey & Louie
Cheats opened: Rainbow Goo, Heckle Button, Unlimited Retries.
Races unlocked: Victory vehicles

Its saved as a dexdrive save which features both a backup done with the Action Replay Pro (GameShark Pro) using Mario64 as bootcart and a save done with the SRAM Manager 2.0 by Blackbag.

You can download it here.

THE END OF THE 64DD ONLINE SERVICE
Randnet who runs the DD service in Japan closed for new applications yesterday, which means that the online N64 service, which sadly never really got anywhere, is closing down.

Reports say that Nintendo is stopping its support of the system over the next months aswell, so we might have seen the last N64DD game and no Ura ZeldaDD. I think 8 or so games were released for the system, not a lot, but concider that the system only has been available since December 1999.

You've probably read all this elsewhere, just thought I'd mention it again :)

MICKEY'S SPEEDWAY CRACK
Who else than LaC gives us another game crack, this time for the sadest piece of Rare software ever, erh anyway here's the crack for Mickey's Speedway. There has been a lot of rumors that the game is using Flash for saving, well it actually uses 4k eeprom (like Mario64), so there you go...
