Where does the game save data ( battery save ) save ? Can I save the game records into CD64? Do I need to buy Extra Save card ?
you can save the records into CD64 as long as the game cartridge that you plugged in has EEPROM built in.
However, we do recommend you always has this type cartridge plug in and always has memory pad installed in your controller. When playing the game, the game save data is tempory save onto the boot cartridge. After you finish to play the game. You can transfer the saved data to the Joypad's memory card.
You do not need to buy those other expensive Ram card ( like DSP1, DP256 or DP4 ) . If just need to use the ordinary memory card from Nintendo or third party.
