The Nintendo 64 is a technologically old console. and as its old the technology inside might not be good quality, a trick i used with my N64 when it didnt play games is too blow all the dust out of the game card, game cartdidge drive and all connections. as its an old console it just may have grown old and worn out.

My Nintendo 64 is lagging!


Definitely if you are playing one of those 3 games it is normal since those are three of the most graphic intensive games ever released for the console besides Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark. Just like if you remember the days of the original nintendo if you had more than 8 characters/sprites on screen at once the game would crawl until you killed one of the sprites! LOL But for those 3 games if you have a lot of graphics on screen with a lot of textures at certain points in a level it will definitely slow down the frame rate for sure. The only way to remedy this is to attach a heat sink fan to your Nintendo 64 processor similar to how you attach one to a computer but that would have to be a custom job or just play the games on Emulator on your PC. Cheers!

Certain colors show up as green instead of their intended color. Usually, occurs in shadows or reflective surfaces.


Game cartridge save battery needs to be replaced is a hassle but can be done, First split the cart case open find out what sort of battery purchase and replace. Some N64 Cartridges required the battery to be soldered in and out.

Why is my Nintendo 64 controller not working?


Well it might be that the controller ports might be loose or broken so you could find some one that repairs old consoles to have a look to see what the problem is then.

How to play Donkey Kong 64 without Expansion pack


Donkey Kong 64 was one of only three Nintendo 64 games to require the Expansion Pak (the others being The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark), which provides 4 MB more RAM for enhanced graphics and more expansive environments, as well as to fix a game-breaking bug.We don't think that you can play this game with no expansion pack. I have tried to play perfect dark with no expansion pack and it was not all there then.

I got some used nintendo 64 games and i played one of them but then i tryed the other one and it didn't work. none of the other games work now either. someone help me!


Hi, I will be more than happy to try to help you out. First, look at the connectors on the games.They should be very shiny and a light gold color. If not, then they are dirty and need to be cleaned off. I usually use a piece of sandpaper and run it over the contacts on the game. Then take a q-tip and put some glass cleaner on it and clean the contacts off.Then look at the 64, check the contacts inside the system itself and clean them up a little as well.Put a game in, and you should be up and gaming.

Can we play gamecubegames inside the wii console, if so how?


You can do both. With internet you can download Nintendo 64 games on the wii shop channel. For game cube games enter the controller in slot one, enter the game and it's like you don't have a wii!

Note: due to the fact the the wii remote does not have enough buttons ALL N-64 games need a gamecube controller or a classical controller. Game Cube games are not compatible with classical controllers.
