Aleck64
« on: January 13, 2015, 01:58 AM »
For those who don't know, the Seta Aleck64 was some arcade hardware based on the Nintendo 64 system. It had just a few releases and was exclusive to Japan only.

Over on the Assembler Forums user Zoinkity has managed to get these Aleck64 Arcade ROMs running on the actual N64 console using a flashcart. Currently these 5 are working:

Donchan Puzzle Hanabi de Doon!
Kuru Kuru Fever
Star Soldier Vanishing Earth Arcade
Tower&Shaft
Vivid Dolls

The good news is this is Everdrive 64 compatible. The bad news is you have to use an old OS.

I've tested these ROMs on several different OS's:

1.28 - Working
1.29 - Working
2.04 - Not working. "Warning BAD CRC"
2.08 - Not working. "Corrupted ROM - BAD CRC"

Not that I expected it to work, but I tried using WindROM to fix the CRC and that removed those error messages, but the games didn't boot.

So somehow without even knowing it the old OS supported Aleck64 games and the newer ones do not. Can you fix this Krikzz?

The original thread on Assembler is right here: http://www.assemblergames.com/forums/showthread.php?55041-Aleck64-on-Retail-Consoles-PoC All the patches and instructions are available there too.


We now have a Facebook group for all N64 fans!

I love it!
If there was an option on the new OS to turn off checksum checking they would probably work.

Eleven Beat patch released!

Has there been a patch released to convert Eleven Beat to English, or whatever? Please post a link.

No it's a patch that converts it to a N64 game just like the other patches in this thread. The patch is in the Assembler thread among the other patches. And yes there are some youtube videos if you search.

Perhaps a "CRC check failed, do you wish to continue?" instead of just not allowing it.
