I have several Nintendo 64 memory paks and I have no idea how to view the contents of each. Is there a startup sequence that works without a game? If I have to view the contents within a game, what games are the best for managing the pak's contents?
In the N64 era, there was a requirement that every game that had compatibility with the controller pack must have a menu to manage the controller pack's data.
In most games that are compatible with the controller pack, you can:
- Hold start on boot-up to bring up one of these menu before the game starts like normal.
However, there are games that did not utilize this feature that are exceptions to this. For these games:
- There's an option in the game menus.
How you reach such menu differs by game, but there should always be one. If you have problem you can always look in the instruction manual but who does that anyway?
Another answer says to hold start while booting up the Nintendo 64. Another recommends holding
B. I would at least try that I suppose since it's easy, but it likely won't work.
