The system was designed by Silicon Graphics Inc., and features their trademark dithered virtual 32-bit color graphics. The early N64 development system was an SGI Indy equipped with an add-on board that contained a full N64 system.The N64 was the first console to support mipmapping and anti-aliasing. The N64's main graphical drawback was the lack of memory (cartridge ROM and system RAM) to store texture maps. This forced designers to rely on low resolution texture maps that were heavily blurred by bilinear filtering.

n64 nintendo gba romsN64 ROMS

The N64 had a tough time getting titles for a long time since it often lacked essential third party support. Some of Nintendo's most notable games for the N64 are: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Star Fox 64 Paper Mario The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask Super Smash Bros. Super Mario 64 Wave Race 64 Mario Kart 64 Super Mario 64 is still considered to have set the standard for 3-D platformer games and is considered by many to be one of the greatest games ever published. Apart from Nintendo's own in-house development, Rareware produced a steady stream of titles for the N64. Some of their more popular titles include: Blast Corps. Killer Instinct Gold Diddy Kong Racing GoldenEye 007 Banjo-Kazooie and its sequel Banjo-Tooie Perfect Dark Jet Force Gemini Donkey Kong 64 Conker's Bad Fur Day The last Nintendo 64 game isos to be released in the United States was Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 on August 20, 2002 while Mario Party 3 released on November 16, 2001 was the last title Europe would see. In G4's recent 'Top 10 Games Consoles' feature, the Nintendo 64 was voted number one against other consoles. Banjo-Kazooie 518 64 nintendo para rom Banjo-Tooie Conker's Bad Fur Day Cruisin' USA.

The Nintendo 64 emulator was the last mainstream home video game console to use ROM cartridges to store its games. Nintendo's choice had several advantages:

  1. ROM cartridges have very fast load times in comparison to disc based games. This can be observed from the loading screens that appear in many PlayStation games but are mainly non-existent in N64 versions.
  2. ROM cartridges are difficult and expensive to duplicate, thus resisting piracy (albeit at the expense of lowered profit margin for Nintendo). While unauthorized interface devices for the PC were later developed, these devices are rare when compared to a regular CD drive as used on the PlayStation.
  3. It is possible to add specialized support chips (such as coprocessors) to ROM cartridges, as was done on some SNES games.
  4. Most cartridges store individual profiles and game progress on the cartridge itself, eliminating the need for separate and expensive memory cards. Storing data required a cartridge battery whose energy would diminish over time, though the battery generally lasted for years.

While Nintendo chose the cartridge format for the N64, the company originally signed a contract with Sony in 1988 to develop a CD-ROM drive addon for the SNES. Nintendo later backed out of the contract due to Sony's insistence that they would receive all licensing revenue for games released on CD-ROM. In addition to the CD-ROM add on, Sony would release a combination Super NES/CD-ROM system in one unit, which would have been called the PlayStation. Sony reportedly kept the name for their later 32 bit system to spite Nintendo. Nintendo sued Sony over the PlayStation name, although they later settled. Nintendo later approached the Dutch electronics giant Philips to develop a Super NES CD-ROM drive, but that deal also went nowhere.

Graphically, benefits of the Nintendo cartridge system were mixed. While N64 games generally had higher polygon counts, the limited storage size of ROM carts limited the amount of available textures, resulting in games which had a plain and flat-shaded look. Later cartridges such as Resident Evil 2 featured more ROM space, which demonstrated that N64 was capable of detailed in-game graphics when the media permitted, but this performance came late in the console war and at a high price.

First to give you an idea about how roms are made - read about making gba roms!

flash advance 256m setConnect GBA Cartridge to PC
You have to have a way to connect gameboy cartridge to the PC. For that you can you Flash Advance Linker or FA Linker Xtreme. Regular linker connects to Printer port when Xtreme can be connected to both printer port or USB.

Save game data on PC as *.GBA file
When you have FA Linker connected you can use Flash Advance Writer, Little Writer or Flash Xtreme writer software to save the game from the cartridge on to your PC Hard Drive. It will be saved as .GBA file. Most roms are 4MB or 8MB
(1 Mega Byte on PC = 8 Mega Bits on Cartridge)

Play backuped games on Nintendo64 Emu
When you have backuped the game on the PC you can Play it with one of the Gameboy Emulators or you can send it a ReWritable Flash Advance card and play it on another Gameboy. Because Flash Advance Cards are bigger than regular GBA Cartridges you can make compilation of say 8 of your favorite games and write them to one 256M FA Card.

In short - this is how most of the gameboy advance roms that you can download from the internet are made. As you can see - the main purpose of roms (and FA Linker) is not to play then on PC's using Emulators, but to use them as backups of your original games. Of course if you have made a backup of your game you can play it PC if you like..
