Title: Myth Card doesn't work with MY N64. Works with others...
Post by: Keylogger on August 06, 2010, 08:51:00 PM
Hello!!
I'm sorry for my bad english...


I have a problem: the Neo Myth Card doesn't work with my N64 console!

I had a Neo Myth Card a few month ago and now I sold it because it didn't work!



I have a region modded N64 console. It can play every games of any region. (PAL & NTSC U/J)
I can change the region with a switch (like you can see on this picture: http://img685.imageshack.us/f/img0242kp.jpg/ (http://img685.imageshack.us/f/img0242kp.jpg/))
So when I want to play PAL games -> I put the switch to PAL
When I want to play US or JAP games -> I put the switch to NTSC

BUT, the Myth Card doesn't seem to be compatible with this kind of modded console.
When I put the Myth Card on my console, with switch on every position, i have a BLACK SCREEN on my TV.

I tried the myth card on my friend console and it worked great!

Now that the Mtyh card has evolued (Great menu, SD Card support,...) I want to order a new one.
But before, I want to be sure it will work with my console.

So I just want to know if now, the Myth Card supports multi region console?

Thanks a lot

Tell us in detail how the mod was done and we may be able to give you an answer.  ~sm-41.gif~

And I honestly doubt that:

I don't know how the mod was done. I bought the console like that in a retro gaming shop in france.

The N64 is white, RGB modded and region free with a switch.

And yes, it can play every games of any region (50Hz & 60Hz)

I bought it for 200$ in the Otakus Store.

But I don't understand why the Myth Card doesn't work with this console

Open it up and make pictures  ;)

To archieve this kind of region mod they would have to desolder a pif chip out of an NTSC console and solder both the PAL and NTSC pif into one console together with a switch.
That would be a lot of work. And why would you kill a NTSC console for that?

But until you open it up there is no way to tell if that's really the case.

OK, I'll make some pictures when I come back home.

But do have an idea about why the Myth Card isn't working on it?

I think the bootloader of the Neo N64 Myth works by running a hacked pif rom.
At least that is how most of the bootemulators work.
So if your N64 was modded by placing two pifs in it. it could be that this interferes with the bootemulator.
But I don't know for sure.

You could maybe test this by flashing a game with card=cic and therefore disabling the bootemulator. Of course a N64 cart with the same cic as the rom you are trying to run has to be plugged in the back of the myth.

Why don't you just buy an NTSC console ? The prices are very reasonable.

edit---With around 50E you can get a boxed one.With about half the price a used one with all leads   ~sm-54.gif~.gif

I was just going to say, you can get a plain N64 cheaper than another Myth. If it works on a friends plain N64, just get one just like it and it will work for you as well.
