NEW TRAINER (INCL PAL-NTSC SELECTOR) BY ROADHOUSE OF HS
JAMES BOND: THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH (USA) +1 (download)
  • Max ammo (YES/NO)

    It seems that Roadhouse still has some problems with the sync, he has included 2 patches in the zip where one removes the back borders when displayed on a PAL TV and the other doesnt, well the one which removes the borders wont work on my PAL TV, but you go ahead and test it yourself.

    Sorry Roadhouse for not adding this earlier...

    WINTER 2000/FALL 2001 RELEASE LIST
    Please note that these are only the games created by Nintendo and 2nd party developers, we will see a few more N64 games than these.

    Hey You, Pikachu! November 6
    Mickey’s Speedway USA November 13
    Banjo-Tooie November 20
    Paper Mario February 5
    Conker's Bad Fur Day March 5
    Pokémon Stadium GS March 26

    Rumors are out that Nintendo and Rare has scrapped Dinosaur Planet totally, and Eternal Darkness has been delayed into scrap in a box. Still these are ign64.com rumors and they can be trusted just as much as the Nintendo64 release list.

    PIKACHU N64 RELEASED IN EUROPE AND THE US
    The buttugly Pikachu Nintendo64 has been released with a retail price of US$140 (in Europe atleast) and without a extention port for your beloved V64. I guess Nintendo knows by now that no one has bought the 64DD and they therefore didnt see any reason to include the ext port at the bottom of the unit.

    Fortunately they didn't remove the cartridge slot, so you can still use your V64jr512 with this bastard of a Pika64 console, lets hope the ugly yellow fucker doesnt get mad and fry you backup unit (bah).

    INDY DUE IN A MONTH, OR?
    Another great piece of news from the masters of getting their info confirmed, ign64.com. Erh anyway, Indiana Jones and the Infornal Machine is due in a month and sure is something to look forward to. But accoring to ign64.com, the game will only be available on retail for a limited period, 14 days or so, and is only to be sold through Lucas Arts own online store. Blockbuster will be renting out the game, but there's not word, according to ign64.com atleast, that they'll be selling the game aswell.

    According to Lucas Arts own site tho, Indiana Jones wont be in Blockbuster until 11th December, so they couldn't be a part of the special limited offer. But the part about it not being available for retail is true, the only place you can get it is from Lucas Arts online store and you have to order before 8th December.

    V64JR 512MBIT BACK IN STOCK EVERYWHERE
    Eventhough the most sought after backup unit has been out of stock just about everywhere for the last 6-7 months because Bung stopped producing it back in March.

    But over the last couple of days every store known has the V64jr back in stock going for US$250-280. It is said that the supplies are limited, so you might wanna order now and not tomorrow, one place to get the unit is from Game Choice Club.

    NEW PALFIXES
    Arrid has taken over where Roadhouse left, and brings us 4 new palfixes, done by using Roadhouse's text (or should I say, done by using Paladin?). The fixes are as follows:

  • Big Mountain 2000 (US) NTSC-to-PAL fix
  • Space Invaders (US) NTSC-to-PAL fix
  • Mario Story (JAP) NTSC-to-PAL fix
  • Ogre Battle 64 (US) NTSC-to-PAL fix

    Note that some people might have problems with the Ogre Battle 64 fix, read the fix's nfo for more details. It seems that Arrid had the same problems as me with some of Roadhouse' palfixes, hmmm ;)

    NEW SECTION BEING ADDED SOON
    Like 6 months ago I planned to make a section devoted to all the now scrapped game ideas which have been presented in some or no form over the years. Besides a story about the game and why it didnt make it (if I'm able to figure that out) as well as all the pictures and movies I can find of the games, well that'll be the content of each game page. So stay tuned for some cool reading :)

    Oh a 64DD page is also in the works, but I'm not sure when it'll be launched as it still needs a lot of work.

    ROADHOUSE RETIRES FROM MAKING PALFIXES
    Well it seems that Roadhouse got tired of making his palfixes, or whatever the reason may be. He has released a text file which explains the basics of fixing a game, using paladin. Anyway the text he wrote can be downloaded here.

    Well thanks to Roadhouse for some useful palfixes eventhough a few weren't 100% fixes. ;)

    PASSPORT 3 PLUS ADAPTOR REVIEW

    DONKEY KONG 64 101% CRACK (NTSC AND PAL)
    Here is the update of LaC's Donkey Kong 64 crack. The first crack had saving problems similar to the one Titanik once made, but since none of the testers of LaC's 101% crack has complained yet, it's decided that it should be released to the public, and here it is.

    SERVER DOWN/NEW SERVER
    Well it seems like vintagegaming.com is dead, atleast on the old server. Conjurer who runs vintagegaming has moved to a new server, but without being able to move everything from the old server to the new one, atleast for now. This means that NES WORLD (the other site I ran) is gone, probably for good. But 64scener should be up and running at full speed within a few days. Please help me make people link to 64zine.vg-network.com instead of the old 64zine.vintagegaming.com which may not be available again.
