I bought my N64 from Amazon about a year back with the red upgraded graphics chip already installed for $30.00 total and already installed  not knowing what to expect.

I used to just have the jumper required black chip in my older Nintendo 64 expansion bay.

to compare the 2, I can't say the red performance chip  change the gameplay much. But the graphics are definitely are a lot better in comparison. A few of my games that were made  later automatically tell me that it reads the chip when I start the game up.  all in all the the N64 does need either the black chip or the upgraded red chip inside it's expansion bay. In order to run the game. Without at least the black RAM chip in the N64's  expansion bay the game console will not work.

In short I'd say you should get this red RAM chip it .does make a lot of N64 titles run faster with higher fame rates on some of the games off the wiki link. But I would not buy this chip by itself it is much more convenience, to get this red chip installed already before you buy a used N64 console the next link is are videos that shows it purpose.

Also you need to know that more RAM means less game lag. So, if you want to learn about this special chip further watch the follow videos, I did not make the videos but they are good proof of what I am trying to say. remember a black jumper pack is Ok but in my opinion the Red Expansion chip is like giving the n64 a boost of almost early PS2 graphics. But that is my opinion from personal experience. but it is expensive currently and JJ games is the only selling that google is telling me. good to add to anyone N64 collection but better to buy one with it installed already.

General / Your Gaming Winning Achievements Since the Beginning

So, what kind of games did can you say you've mastered in your life, for me I don't even scratch 1% of games of all time sake. my backlog is Huge. on PS3 I beat and played every Call Of Duty Game on Vary Easy but never touched much on Advance Warfare and Black Ops series. I've beati all the Call Of Duty Games for PS2 and Gamecube many times over. But I can't say I mastered them though. I beaten a lot of PC games including Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Mech Warrior 4 series, the vary first game I beat was Bill Elliot's NASCAR Challenge and Wolfenstein 3D shareware version. before beating the whole six episode version more recently

if you cannot think of anything else that just name the first video game you've ever beaten in your life or if you cannot remember what was your last winning achievement I only consider mastering a video game if your can learn to beat the game at all difficulty level :)

I already Played Sonic the Hedgehog in my life but never beaten it, and I never played super Mario world. but super Mario world looks more fun than sonic in my own opinion. I really are not vary good at platformers. The only 2D platformers video game I ever beaten is Duke Nukem 1, and 2. I have super Mario Brothers for NES and I still have yet to beat it. Platformers, are usually not my favorite type of game I am a sports gamer freak mostly. I like games like Golf Soccor/football, I love Hockey, I like baseball, american footbal,l and basketball, and racing.

I don't like the sonic level design or what I saw in the video of Super Mario World. I really don't like how challengeing most platformers are and it is easy to get frustrated at platformers. There is somthing about sports games that I love. and it keeps my hooked.

I never was athletic but always wanted to be. I was always bullied in school (even by the teachers) and never was able to do anything but go off alone at recess. :(

Classic Video Games / Your Favorite Nintendo Video Game Product
« on: April 01, 2017, 10:34:21 pm »
I like both my NES and my Nintendo 64. But for parties, I think the N64 is the greatest party machine that ever came out in my opinion. I love to collect for the N64 there is something about how the cartridges feel in my hand that gotten me to love this console.

My NES don't see a lot of use because it is vary hard to get running and I have been using my Retro Duo most recently.   I wish I had more to afford the Super Nintendo but everything is too expensive for it. In fact things cost more for the Super Nintendo then the Nintendo 64.

I used to own 2 kinds of gameboys.  but one was stolen and another was given away. so if you want tell us your most favorite Nintendo product. it can be anything Nintendo. even a toy :D

Between all the SONY consoles, VR and handheld sold to some of us? Which one would be your most go at and play system from SONY. I will do a similar topic for Nintendo just for those of you who never tried a SONY gaming product or are not interested ever owning a SONY gaming console. For me 

My choice is the PlayStation 3 first even though it is not getting used as much as my Play Station 2 is currently. I love the PS3's hard drive capability and the fact that the controllers are not only wireless but easy don't need to keep changing batteries. Also for the PlayStation 3 super slim it's is like owning both a souped up PS1 and a CD storage center and a Blu ray and PS3 game player all in one package and it still does have its online browsing technology all combined into one package.

my 2nd, is the PlayStation 2 I still own a good one so far I love the PlayStation 2 for it's graphics even though I think an Xbox would be even better for the 6th generation but I never owned an Xbox before

3rd I'd say would be a PlayStation 4 it sound like I could be a lot of fun even though I never or owned or even touched one before :P

4th, PlayStation 1, because even though I have a lot of memories but It just ran too slow on some of it's more modern releases. In my opinion all PlayStation 3's runs most of the PS1 games more faster than my last old PS1 ever did.

I actually might want a PS4 in the future but I never owned of seen one with my own eyes. However, I will not buy the thing if every game needs to be downloaded in order to play it unless I get one with a massive hard drive

For those of you who own A PS4 please talk about it's benefits here. everyone says it is garbage. even if you think it is garbage, please explain why on this thread. :)

Before I start a game I usually need to eat of drink something before or during the gaming session. Otherwise I become fatigued and start to lose and get grumpy. What are some of the things you can eat or drink while taking on other players online or a single player campaign. Or, maybe you have friends to play with in which, in my case, I have none.

I personally use an american Soda called Mountain Dew kick start or just Mountain Dew or some type of caffeine soda. Sometime I enjoy cheesy snacks also.  :)

The first thought for most would be glitches, but How about funny things taking place that are meant to happen in video games.

There is this vary hard Mario game for the Wii that I tried. Where Mario looks like he is walking on a hamster treadmill and it's just funny on that game just watching Mario jumping around trying to get off a circle treadmill.

Then there is a shooting game called Gun Smoke for the arcade and NES but I know in the arcade version it is vary hard until you figure out how to work your surroundings. like shooting a barrel of horse crap and game text comes up as POO and all your enemies die as a result.

I have not played a lot of video game but maybe you can think of something funny about a serious or maybe not so serous game

speaking of repos I know of a place online that sells 500 NES games in one single cartridge. I bought this one after Christmas. and it runs great ;D but the only thing is you're not suppose to use a real NES but instead use  a retron 5 or a retro duo is how to play these game properly. I highly recommend this NES repo cart. it has a whole lotta games never released in the US and Canada, in fact some are entirely in Japanese but a lot of these Japanese originals have their menu translated into English. these guys been sellling these games for a while and the seller that sells them claims when I asked him how reliable these carts were and he said nobody has complained yet. I myself have one and I can't complain either, it really works ;) but a vast majority are pure english games. However this is the only repo I own and it probally going to stay that way. I mean most of those games are virtually impossible in finding a copy without paying through the nose

it's on etsy and as of now it's gone down in cost since I paid for mine in January

I store my stuff in my garage, and I still haven't come across any disc rot *knocks on wood*. They are all in cases and shelved, though.

I really don't think temperature has much to do with it.

I wouldn't continue to leave then in a hot and cold garage. I guess if you live someplace dry year around with no humidity it might take longer to lose it's paint I suppose. in fact I think that cold is worse than heat so if you live let say in Texas or somewhere in the desert you have a better chance at keeping all you discs safer but I still would not store them in a garage. Larry Bundy a UK based YouTube lost a vast majority his collection due to leaving the games in a leaky shed. water crept in and destroyed all his CIB games and Saturn Games as well. but then again if you live in Texas you then you probably deal with tornado's in which can rip a garage apart easier than your home at average. or maybe you live in one of those houses with the garage attached to the house than I can understand why you not having these issues but be careful in damp enviroments

The term you are looking for is disc rot.

Disc rot RARELY happens when discs are properly stored.  I've never seen a single case of disc rot where the user stored the disc consistently in a proper environment.  (i.e. not outdoors, not someplace extremely hot or cold, not in direct sunlight, etc.)

Yea I live in a basement but all my CD's are put away in proper cases, including the one I lost. I live in a cold part of the united states this time of year and a few weeks ago I lost all heating for 6 days in my home and everything was cold. My other games are ok it is just this one, I always had problem with disc rot  but usally it is because I didn't have then in a proper case. my main problem is even when I have heat the CD's still feel cold and then in worse cases It becomes wet inside the case due to the humidity on my home. I live in a high humid state year around and with extreme weather both hot and cold.

A lot of people worry about scratches, but if you take care of your game they won't happen but warping will. I just had one of my most expensive games go to waste do to warping and now I need a replacement.

if your game is not working or loading I want to tell you It could be warped and I know how to tell if it is. first you need 2 things a light and the game itself. hold your CD/DVD up against the light while looking on the silver or black side of the CD. if you see any light shining threw the CD/DVD like a little white piece on the silver side. than your games life has just ended and you need a replacement (even if it still works) sometimes a game maybe warped and still work up to a certain point where the console try to find data on the missing top of the CD. most times when a CD warps it loses top side of the disc instead of the shiny stuff never scrape the top or bottom of a CD especially the top park because if the top gets a hole then the whole game is shot.

Again I love to hear your thoughts and experience on warping CDs/DVD video games

Let kick this thread in high gear with one of the most (among many) underrated metal bands of all time. I LOVE Firehouse 1st and 2nd album and I keep playing over and over and never get sick oft them. This band debuted in 1991 but failed due to the many other bands competing at the time. Good mentions of Gene Loves Jezebel the band If I see anything of this band in the record shop today I'll be sure to buy an album if I can find it 8)

Anybody else have imput, this is a all taste goes thread ;D

The best band you've never heard is Gene Loves Jezebel from the late '80s early '90s. Had some incredible stuff, but they were under the same label as Guns & Roses and never got promoted.

Yea I actually hear of this band they played a hit I own called Jealous. Off one of my rarer artest compilations called "Before X" that is a good song among many forgotten hits :(
