I got a used GameShark Pro (for Nintendo 64) but it did not have the manual, code book, or SharkLink serial cable. It currently says there is 15% free space on the cartridge, so I’d like to connect it to my computer and transfer some more codes to it. I’ve looked around and found a copy of the SharkLink software, but I need a cable to connect it to my PC. I have found two differing discussions about the cable.
In one, the SharkLink cable has a female 9-pin connector on one end to connect to the serial port of a PC, and a male 25-pin connector on the other end to connect to the port on the back of the GameShark. The problem is that this requires an adapter, but there is no one, standard way to adapt 9-to-25 (especially for proprietary systems). I searched for pinouts, but could not find any.
In the other discussion, it is indeed a 25-to-25 pin cable that connects to the parallel port.
Does anyone know which it is? Does anyone know what the pinout for the SharkLink cable is? Does anyone have one that they can check to find out? I doubt that it is printed in the manual, but it is simple to find out with a digital multimeter.
