ROM format
« on: July 31, 2016, 09:24 PM »
 Hello, everybody.
 I was wondering what is the best format to use the roms??

 There is 4 formats, .z64 (bid-endian), .n64 (middle-endian), .v64(little-endian) and .rom (I think it is endianess...).
 The hack community prefers .z64 as they say it's the almost pure one, and some patchs is only applicable for those;
but I downloaded a pack with all roms on .n64 and was thinking if someone knows some pack with all the roms on .z64??
 Or should I no worry about it?
 
 Thanks.

Thank you saturnu!!

Yep. You only need to know the format of a game when patching it yourself. Otherwise, just use any rom format, as the Everdrive 64 knows how to convert the rom to the format it needs.
