Question about Atlus GBA Game Shark for Nintendo 64

2 Answers

My Nintendo 64 Gameshark (v.2.21) won't turn on no matter what Nintendo 64 gamepak I use. It worked when I first bought it but it stopped working the day after. The LED indicator read "8." when it stopped working. I just bought it used off of Amazon.com. Do you think there's a solution to this problem or is my Gameshark broken?

You'll need to startup with either Mario 64 or GoldenEye in the cart slot in order to load the GameShark using the default keycode, and be able to fix your problem. If you don't have those games, it's possible some other older carts will work, but I've only tested those two.

Thank you and good luck!

    After two days of on and off success with the game shark including using super mario 64 to try to solve the problem, it now rarely even shows an LED of any sort except an occasional dash, small c , H, or an 8. Is there anything else we can do with super mario 64 besides putting it on the game shark and turning it on to fix the problem? Or do we just need a new game shark? Thank you very much for your time.

When a Gameshark is given the code for a game - it will lock up and show '8' until that game cartridge is inserted. Without the relevant cartridge that correspond to the entered code, your gameshark will remain locked up.

If you have a gameshark with a port on the back:

You can hook it up to your computer and reset / remove the troublesome codes. The tutorial and software for this is here. This may only apply to v3.2 or v3.3 though.

One other thing I have stumbled across is that there are two games that will usually allow a locked up Gameshark to start again so you can resolve the problem: Mario 64 or GoldenEye.

I hope that helps.

GOD GARNED N64 GAMESHARK!


The original GameShark for the N64 only works on certain games. During the N64 era, game creators would often include code on the game itself that prevented the use of a GameShark. It is possible that you can find a newer version of the GameShark that would work with this so called "blocked" games, but it might be difficult.

I'm assuming that this is the GameShark Pro for the N64. If so, the button is used to find and create your own cheats, such as infinite life, infinite ammo, etc...

To use this feature, start the game, say a first person shooter, and load into a level and when you are ready to begin playing, press the button. The GameShark screen will show up and you can say "search for code" or "search for changes" something like that and the game shark will run a diagnostic that it shows on the screen. A number will appear noting the number of lines of code executed since the game loaded. When it is finished, press the button again and it will return you to the game exactly as you left it. If you are trying to get infinite ammo, simply shoot once and press the gameshark button again to search for codes again. When it is finished, the number it shows will be much smaller, since much less lines of code have executed since the last run. Press the gameshark button again to return to the game and continue the process until you have only a few, say 5 or less, or even just one code left on the gameshark diagnostic. This code will be the one that dictates the amount of ammo that you have. By altering this code with the gameshark, you can either start with an extremely high amount of ammo, or have infinite ammo entirely. The key to this strategy is to do as little as possible between code searches so that you can quickly narrow down on the code that you trying to alter. Hope this helps.

Nintendo 64 quit after using a gameshark


It might be Karma. Wait, super nintendo cartridges, you mean from the SNES? that might be the problem. Or it could have died from old age. you might try to buy another n64 without all of the cables, and just replace the one you have.

How does it work?


put in oe of the working games and go to keycodes hit the A button and you can scroll through a list of games that need keycodes. Select the game and then turn your N64 off and then put the game you selected in the gameshark and turn it back on, it should now work

Nintendo 64 Gameshark boots up with 1 game


after you load up 007 you must go to key codes to select your game. Then you turn it off and put that game in. It wont start again if you put the wrong game in so dont screw up. Then you can select cheat codes.
