Disable Run Last Game
« on: September 03, 2021, 03:45 AM »
Anyone know if it’s possible to disable the Run Last Game feature? I just got a Tribute64 wireless controller and unfortunately it requires pressing Start to sync so it’s impossible to power up the n64 and go straight to the Everdrive menu. You first have to press Start then Reset. Thank you

Remove the sd card from the n64 and put it into your computer, then delete or rename the autoexec rom file.
Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth...

Thanks but there is no autoexec.rom file on my SD card anywhere.

Then it sounds like you are not using an official menu and ED64...

I certainly am. Purchased from Krikzz and using OS 3.06

I believe you are misunderstanding the issue. I am not trying to autoload a game. This is what autoexec.v64 is used for per the release notes
"OS will automatically boot autautoexec.v64 if such file found in ED64 folder"

The problem is that pressing Start from the ED64 menu automatically loads the last played game. I want to disable this because you have to press Start to get the Brawler64 to sync. This means it always loads the last played game then I have to press Reset to get back to the ED64 menu.

Sorry, yes, I misunderstood. There is no way to disable the last run game by pressing start in the official os.  I will think about adding the option to my unofficial os though, but would only work with the V3 and below. As a work around, you should be able to sync and then reset to menu...

That would be awesome! I’m using v3 😊

Just press start on the Brawler64 before you start the system. I have had no issues with my unit with autoloading the last game played.

Thank you for this. I never thought to press Start prior to powering on the console but the sync light actually comes on even before the menu loads. A bit klugy but definitely better than a game auto loading then having to press Reset. If these companies were smart they wouldn’t limit controller sync to just the Start button. Any button press should initiate it IMO.
