Banjo Tooie now works on the Everdrive 64!
« on: December 08, 2012, 11:36:06 AM »
Banjo Tooie has now been hacked to work with the Everdrive 64! This means that the Everdrive 64 now works with every commercial N64 game, and every N64 program except for the unofficial Super Mario 64 new level hacks (which is down to the hacks themselves not running on real N64s, not the Everdrive 64). Unfortunately the Banjo Tooie fix is only for the NTSC version of the game, so if you have a PAL N64 then your TV has to support NTSC mode (almost all new or fairly new TVs do, at least in England). Thankfully mine does, and I can confirm that the hack works and BT now starts and plays fine on my PAL system.

To get BT working on your Everdrive 64, go to

http://www.assemblergames.com/forums/showthread.php?43143-Banjo-Tooie-(U)-NTSC-Crack-amp-Save-Fix-released-today!

and follow the instructions in post #9, that's all there is to it!

Many thanks to Jovis, Dextrose and everyone else involved, and of course KRIKzz  for making the Everdrive 64 in the first place.

Bah! Requires Windows. Someone should just upload the patched ROM somewhere, like ROMNation.

So I tried this on a Windows XP machine. Runtime error with the patching program.

This is great news!

However it still doesn't have 100% compatibility as Doubutsu no Mori still doesn't work and I'm still not sure if Dezaemon 3D saves properly, effectively making that game more or less unplayable.
I updated the incompatibility list with these news: http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=147.0

But only two incompatible games is still very impressive! And I'm sure Dezaemon 3D is fixable via an OS update.

is great to see lac pop back into the old n64 scene with this release. i remember waiting on lac for cracks for some of the later big n64 releases all those years ago and i was always pleased with the outcome and now even banjo-tooie, the one that (almost) got away has finally been cracked all these years down the line :)
 shame i purchased the original game a few months back so i could have the full library but then again theres no harm in purchasing a great retro game :)

Well that's up to you if you don't. I don't bother with shitty US exclusives myself. Doubutsu no Mori and Dezaemon 3D are great games IMHO.

Putting that aside, now I just hope more romhackers make their creations work on real hardware.
