Question about Nintendo 64 Console
Iv'e unearthed my N64 for my son to try out. Everything is running great, most games save fine. Paper Mario in specific will play fine but will not save (by using a save block or ending a stage). I'm assuming this is some kind of bug in the game and is unfixable by me, just seeing if any other possibilities and solutions were known.
This does indeed sound like a glitch in the battery backup system built into the cartridge; the battery could perhaps be dead, although that really should have taken longer to happen. Unfortunately, I don't think you're going to be able to fix this. The good news is that the problem is almost certainly in the cartridge itself and not the console, and a replacement cartridge probably wouldn't be that hard to find, or too expensive.
