Question about Nintendo 64 Console

2 Answers

Dead... system? I booted up my N64 a year back after loaning out my games. I was playing Castlevania, and as I was fighting the boss at the fallaway bridge.. he sunk though the bridge, and the screen went black? It continues to be this way, no matter what game I use. What can I do to fix this?

    I went over the games, it seems a lot of dirt had built up and disturbed the games from reading correctly. After cleaning them, it seems to work great. However, there is no denying that I need to replace it.

Goldeneye deleted all it's memory randomly

Hello, n64 cartridges are outdated for that reason exactly. They have a small space to save game info. A quick off and back on is actually the way you reset the memory. Say you bought someone else's n64 and each game you loaded had saved info on it. Powering off and then turning it back on, would erase that data and allow you to start your own game. Once your 64 went instantly off, it reset/erased the saved info. Unfortunately there is nothing I know of to get it back. Sorry. Hope this helps though.

Gain Complete Achievement
  • A golden level sign is a badge of honor showing the player they have completed an in-game level to the highest completion standard. It is a graphic that sits above the level select graphic. To have the golden level complete sign hang over every game level, players must collect every available item and rescue every prisoner in the level during one play through. A good tip is to use the x-ray scan card to more easily find all the prisoners and collectibles.
  • All Boss Cards
  • The way to achieve a boss card is to destroy the boss the player is fighting as quickly as possible. If the player defeats the boss quickly, a onscreen message will pop up informing the player they succeeded in getting a boss card for that boss.

    The best way to do this is to make sure the in-game character is equipped with lots of grenades and a special weapon. On the fourth boss, use the flame shot. Try to use the Metal Slug if applicable. Players can use the Metal Slug for the second, third and final bosses.
  • Unlock the Extra Dungeon Mission
  • During the fifth mission, collect the dungeon card. The card is located in level five, section three. In Metal Slug Advance, players can take different paths to the end of a level. To achieve the dungeon card, take the top path directly after the first playable screen of level five, section three. Then, take the top path again at the next opportunity to choose a path. This is a dead end. Kill any existing enemies at the dead end and pick up the dungeon card collectible. Head back towards the previous screen and finish the level. Once the player has completed the fifth mission and collected the dungeon card during play, exit to the mission select screen. In the upper left hand corner will be a selectable extra mission called "Dungeon."

    I am on forest temple level andhave to get that gale boomerang and i know you have to defeat an boss to get it, but which room is the boss in?

    You don't have to defeat the boss to get it, you need to defeat the baboon monkey creature. You'll need to save some monkeys from their cages and head to the biggest room with all the doors and go to where the baboon took down the bridge. Now you can cross the gap using the monkeys and get to the room where you can fight him for the Gale Boomerang. He's in the room labeled #10 on the map.

    N64 will not play on new TV and Stereo Reciever

    maybe it's just the T.V I mean the N64 is like 10+ years old and you're trying to get it to work in a new T.V! I reckon that your best bet is to buy an older T.V to play it with or get an emulator e.g PJ64 on your computer and then you can still play your games

    N64 light comes on, but nothing comes on screen

    Make sure that the game you are trying to play is free of dust and other obstructions.  I know that the label on the back of the game says that you should never blow on the edge connector, but it doesn't harm the game. (Trust me I've been cleaning the connectors for years now, and it hasn't been damaged.  After you throughly rid the game of dust, do the same with the edge connector on the N64.  Simply hold the opening open and blow the dust out.  This should work.   Please give feedback!! Hope this helps!!

    Hi www_julie,
    Heres a walkthrough for you> Museum of natural history (Bartman Begins)

    Second level, here we go!

    Playable characters: Homer and Bart
    Enemies: Security Guards, Dolph, Kearney and Jimbo
    Ammunition: Light Bulbs
    -NEW ABILITY- bartman

    After the cut scene run right and jump the gap, break the barrel for a Krusty
    koupon then slide down the Zipline, past the helium bottle and climb the wall
    and get the token. Climb the ladder and activate the switch (X). Now you are
    homer, use the fallen stalactite to jump the gap and climb the ladder NEW
    CLICHE- You should now have unlocked the cliche "switches and levers" and
    jump on the pressure pad. When the gate recedes climb the ladder to the next
    area. You will now fight a few guards, usually 1 at a time; they will take 4
    hits to kill. Activate the pressure pad to make the blocks in the wall come
    out, you are now Bart again. Jump on the blocks then the statues knees to get
    the koupon, return to the blocks and jump onto the statues bust and then the
    higher blocks. You will now come to a big gap, use the bartman cape glide
    (hold B while jumping) if you're lucky you will get the koupon while gliding.
    Pull the lever and the bridge will extend, you are now Homer! First cross the
    bridge, pass under the statues legs, beating any guards in your way but DON'T
    jump on the pressure pad, just pass it and pick up the duff cap on top of the
    mini statue that is in half. Now activate the pad. You are now Bart, Run
    along and jump on the blocks, going LEFT, you will have to glide to one of
    them, then climb the vines on the hall, jump off the roman helmet and onto
    the sword, kill the guard and get the koupon. Now proceed back onto the
    blocks but this time go right and onto the platform, kill the 2 guards and
    hold up on the + pad and shoot(A) to hit the target, then jump into the gap.
    Straight away run off the brontosaur's back and get the koupon in front of
    the mini-T-Rex then back on the bronto's back, onto his head and glide onto
    the canopy jump onto the nearby pterodactyl and then over the mini-T-Rex, or
    onto his head for the koupon, then pull the switch to extend a tongue from
    the mini-T-Rex's mouth. You are now Homer. Climb the ladder and jump off the
    bronto's tail onto the tongue, then at the tar pit (don't worry it's not real
    tar!)jump onto the bone in the middle then to the other side. Kill any guards
    on the way and activate the pressure pad !NEW CLICHE! You should now have
    unlocked the cliche "Pressure pads" You are now Bart. Go right and glide on
    the draft onto the pterodactyl. Jump onto the pterodactyl to the left and go
    down the Zipline, continue left until you get the Krusty koupon, then retrace
    your steps to the volcano and on that pterodactyl, go right and pull the
    lever and get ready for the first boss fight of the level!
    Name: Dolph
    Hits to kill: 4
    Attacks: Slingshot
    Description: A punk-looking character, he has a brownish-green baggy shirt on
    and black shorts, his hair is draped down the right side of his face.
    Shoot him to start the fight(to shoot down hold down on + pad and press A)
    then when the lights go out shoot the targets, then when the lights return,
    shoot him, after about 4 hits(I used light bulbs, with normal ammo it might
    be different) then go right. Straight when this area starts, turn around and
    get the Krusty koupon, then go right, shooting the targets to let Homer
    proceed, as you can't go through the doors without him going first. Ok pause
    the game just after the castle area as the is an important target here, while
    Homer is destroying the fence, run forward and hit the 2 targets, as the one
    under the cannon will release a duff token for Homer, then prepare for the
    boss fight!
    Name: Kearney
    Hits to kill: 5
    Attacks: None
    Description: A bald kid wearing a white shirt and black shorts.
    As the fight goes on, you will see 3 doors with Homer, Kearney or Ralph
    behind them you must shoot the target underneath Kearney to hurt him, after
    about 5 hits he will fall, letting you leave. In this next room, you must use
    the planets to get to the top, there will be a bit where you must use a small
    meteor to get to a ladder then climb the ladder onto Jupiter, then jump onto
    Saturn's rings. At this point there will be 2 planets, 2 flying saucers and 1
    rocket. Ok, this is all for: 1 koupon and the best spot to hit Jimbo. Jump
    onto the first planet, then onto the first flying saucer, slide down the
    Zipline then drop off of it right on top of the rocket, then use the rocket
    smoke to glide onto the second saucer. While on the second saucer, get the
    Krusty koupon, now for the boss fight!
    Name: Jimbo
    Hits to kill: 20-21(I used normal ammo for this; it may take less with the
    light bulbs)
    Attacks: Green plasma orbs
    Description: Wears a woolly hat, black shirt with a skull emblem on it and
    blue jeans.
    Ok, this fight is easy enough if you got the light bulb, either way, use the
    automatic slingshot (hold A) he is just above you so you will have to shoot
    End analysis:
    7/9 Duff Beer Caps
    18/18 Krusty Koupons
    4/27 Video Game Cliches
    Happy Gaming :)
