I recently purchased the Donkey Kong 64 and when I start the game it says, "Expansion Pack Not Installed". I have a "Jumper Pack" installed. Is the Jumper Pack the same as an Expansion Pack or is something different required. The Jumper Pack runs fine with "Super Smash Bros".
The Expansion Pack is different from a the system's default Jumper Pak. You can buy a third party Expansion Pack on ebay for around 5-10 bucks compared to official ones being around 30 dollars. Otherwise, you can't play DK64 and few other games without it.

Donkey Kong 64wasoneof only three Nintendo64games to require theExpansion 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.
your looking for the "expansion pack" its needed to play the games on the n64, it is located on top of the n64 towards he front of the console. that little door/flap between the power and reset button. get one online for cheap. like ebay or something. keep in mind there are 2 different kind of expansion packs on is black. it is the standard one. one is red on top, that one is better and will play all n64 games like donkey kong 64 and zelda ocarina of time
I would just look at the bottom of the RAM and see if there isn't any dust, I get that problem with my NES and NES games only diffrence is it shows a pink screen instead of a blue screen. I clean the treads of the cartrages including the RAM with a very light damp cu tip. Hope that works out.
