Star Wars Episode One Racer Controller
Amazing work, Clarky!

Howzabout making a 6 button arcade stick for the N64 to use with fighting games like Killer Instinct Gold? It'd be really neat to have the button colors patterned after those of the standard N64 pad. With a splattering of KIG art I'm sure you could sell it for quite a bit of cheese.

And some people wonder why mint condition N64 cartridges keep going up in price. :lol:

Yeah, that's a Conker's Bad Hair Day on his chest plate. :blasphemy bat:

Entered a Super Smash Bros. tournament today...
I wish this tournament had been held locally to me so I could have brought my Japanese copy of Super Smash Bros. I bet a lot of people would have gotten a kick out of the different sound effects for punches which sound more like bare knuckles and the beam sword which sounds like a light saber.

I may have gone a little Gamecube crazy....
Nice collection, Brodieman!

However, I didn't see the newer official white GameCube controller with the longer cord. Here's mine (still boxed) in the upper left hand corner of this picture.

A user on Nintendo Age may have just what I'm looking for. Crosses fingers.
Good luck, let us know how it turns out.

In the meantime, here's a little video that shows how fun Killer Instinct Gold is to actually play.

The game was way ahead of it's time with wake-ups, pressure moves, juggles and even a parry system long before Street Fighter III made the concept popular. Also, unlike the original Killer Instinct- KIG includes throws and even throw reversals. :o The game is so deep that if the characters hadn't of been pre-rendered, thus blurry during close-ups, many people would mistake KIG for a thoroughly modern fighting game.

Wouldn't it be nice to have the original arcade versions of KI and KI2 re-released in HD for the Wii U? Nicer still would be the inclusion of on-line play.

Hey, I downloaded Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers for the current Wii Virtual Console and it includes on-line play! This is really nice as I get to use my TvC fightstick with it and relive the 90's arcade experience.

Sadly, I don't have a 6-button arcade stick for my N64 so I gotta play KIG with the standard pad or the 3rd-party Madcatz controller seen in my previous photo. This isn't horrible but I'm sure the game would play much better with some sort of arcade style stick.

This is my Sin & Punishment inspired controller. The finishing touch was Zoki's black buttons:

That's an AWESOME looking controller, bluedog! Question; will the black paint ever wear off the buttons or do they have some sort of coating for protection and durability?

Having a hard time finding Killer Instinct Gold
KIG isn't just a great game to collect but also a very fun game to play and that may explain why it's rather pricey. The fighting engine holds up quite well against many modern fighting games and the combos can be rather thrilling to pull off and watch.

Don't forget to also check Amazon.com. You may pay a little bit more but you may also be able to find a copy of KIG in better condition.

Here are some pictures of mine:

I've been playing this game quite a bit as I'm trying to master Kim Wu's combos. She's really a neat character with great range thanks to her fire balls, but she's also deadly up close thanks to her three different openers.

Targeted in America
Here are Attorney General Eric Holder's four requirements the United States has to follow in order to legally kill a citizen:

The principle of necessity requires that the target have definite military value. The principle of distinction requires that only lawful targets - such as combatants, civilians directly participating in hostilities, and military objectives - may be targeted intentionally. Under the principle of proportionality, the anticipated collateral damage must not be excessive in relation to the anticipated military advantage. Finally, the principle of humanity requires us to use weapons that will not inflict unnecessary suffering.

The slow-kill techniques used on Cathie and I specifically employ "unnecessary suffering" so I don't believe that the DOJ is directly involved. Our torture seems more akin to the CIA's No-Touch-Torture programs which have come to light in the wake of the release of former Director of the National Clandestine Service Jose Rodriguez's book Hard Measures. <_<

Politically speaking, I believe the spying of FDA whistleblowers is much more relevant to what's going on regarding Cathie and me. If you're not familiar with this startling case I suggest watching the video embedded in this Democracy Now story.

Spying on Scientists: How the FDA Monitored Whistleblowers Who Raised Concerns over Radiation

After watching the video I modded one of my Rumble Paks and it works like a charm. In fact, I removed the resistor completely and just used a piece of wire between the two connection points with no ill effects to either my N64 or controller.

I use this Rumble Pak just about every time I play F-Zero X as the rumble feature adds so much to that particular game. Interestingly enough, although the Wii Virtual Console version of F-Zero X supports improved 480p graphics- even when playing with the GameCube controller it still doesn't provide a rumble feature. It's for this reason and some slight tearing on the VC version that I consider the N64 cartridge iteration of F-Zero X to be the definitive example of this awesome game.

This information is quoted from the comments section of the Wired Magazine article, Mind Control Madness which is itself a rebuttal of the Washington Post's article Mind Games.

By Allen Barker, PhD

"[These are some of my comments on the article by Sharon Weinberger in the Jan. 14, 2007 Washington Post magazine, titled "Mind Games." They obviously also relate to the commentary here on this blog. That article is available online at http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/01/10/AR2007011001399.html ...]

I would like to thank Ms. Weinberger for researching and writing this article. The article seems reasonably fair, based on the openly available sources describing research into areas like "voice-to-skull" technologies. That might not seem like much, except that up until now even that has been a very rare thing, indeed -- especially published in a mainstream paper like the Washington Post.

As the article points out, such technologies have been researched for many years. The advanced forms are *highly* classified. Given this, any victims of nonconsensual experimentation truly have an uphill battle as far as even getting people to acknowledge what is going on.

Even the state of *open* technology in this area is not widely known. Many ordinary citizens who think about the problem for ten minutes, based on naive views of government and outdated knowledge of 70s-era technology, will tend to dismiss the claims of TIs. Even back in the 70s there was more existing technology than many people are aware of, and consider how much more exists now after all the advances in computers and in other areas. For example, here are a couple of links to some recent articles on open-technology:

http://www.umc.pitt.edu/pittma... Dead Link
http://www.umc.pitt.edu/pittma... Dead Link

These two articles involve RFID chips and neural prosthetics, and describe a level of technology that is beyond what people commonly assume is available as the unclassified state of the art.

Most people also tend not to think like "mind controllers." That is to their credit in most cases, but we all know that some tyrants -- both petty and large -- covet nothing more than the ability to control other people's lives. Just because you and I do not think like that, some people *do* think like that -- some people will always want to be the next Stalin. That is why eternal vigilance is necessary to maintain liberty even if there is just a potential threat.

In evaluating technologies, then, one has to have some idea about how such technologies might be abused. Various conditioning effects, for example, can be used to influence people using only fairly low levels of technology and surveillance. Influencing operations do not require 100% total control over a person (that is a common straw man argument, in fact). Even if the influencing does not work as planned, it can nonetheless constitute torture to a nonconsensual subject.

Below are a few general comments on parts of the article.

In the article, Gloria Naylor's book is compared to a 1957 book by Evelyn Waugh in which a character is "gaslighted" with voices to his head as well as "performances" designed to be meaningful only to him. I am not going to comment on Waugh or the character in his book, but this does give me an opportunity to point out part of the long history of mind control technologies and operations.

The year 1957 was during the height of MKULTRA mind control experimentation. A reading of the limited, surviving, redacted financial records gives a picture of how widespread the program was, as well as how it was covertly funded through "cutouts." It is commonly believed that MKULTRA was mainly about LSD testing, but there were literally hundreds of subprograms which investigated just about every conceivable way to manipulate and influence human beings. This included things like remote polygraphs and electronic influencing and control.

One major goal of MKULTRA was to find ways to discredit people. That much is explicitly documented. One way to discredit a person was to drop them acid in public, but there are many other ways. Certainly dropping acid to unwitting people was tested on nonconsensual citizens, and it is reasonable to assume that many other techniques were similarly tested.

Besides just the capability for "street theater" performances, what voice-to-skull technologies existed back in 1957?

In the late 50s Ewen Cameron was already experimenting with what he called "psychic driving." He would tape-record interviews with his patients and then play parts of those tapes back to them, repetitively. He used speakers in the ceilings, pillow speakers, and even speakers in football helmets that the patients could not remove in order to constantly bombard his "patients" with voices. He is known to have experimented with mimicking the voices of people familiar to the subjects, as well as with using multiple voices to exploit possible effects of social influencing such as "peer pressure." This research was funded by the CIA under MKULTRA. So the idea of beaming voices at people for mind control was not new to people in the clandestine world of mind control, even back in the late 50s.

Another late-50s voice-to-skull technology is the tooth implant. This is really rather simple technology, despite some people's unwarranted skepticism. All it takes is a small radio receiver and a piezoelectric vibrator for bone-conducted audio. There is a patent for such a device which was submitted to the patent office in the late 50s. That particular patent also makes use of facial nerves in addition to bone conduction (which was already prior art at the time).

Experiments were also conducted to try to replicate the radio reception that some people naturally experienced due to certain fillings in their teeth, though what resulted from such investigations is not well-documented. I am *not* saying that a tooth implant was used in any particular case, but that the technology has existed for a very long time. It is a possibility that at least deserves consideration in certain cases, rather than completely dismissing a priori the entire hypothesis that external (or exogenous) voices were ever inflicted on a person.

Back in the 50s hypnosis was a major focus of mind control research. It is a commonly-held belief that people cannot be hypnotized against their will or made to do things under hypnosis which they wouldn't ordinarily do, but the belief is not true; it is false. Although not *everyone* can be hypnotized against their will or made to do things that they would not ordinarily do, some people are highly susceptible to hypnosis and hence are highly vulnerable. Given that, consider how much more effective hypnosis against a susceptible individual would be if the hypnotist had 24/7 voice contact with that subject in order to constantly reinforce the "training" and to issue commands.

The hypnosis research under programs like BLUEBIRD and MKULTRA in the 50s also made use of technology. There was research into how radio waves of various sorts affected hypnotic susceptibility. There were literally experiments into hypnotizing people and installing posthypnotic commands which could be activated over the telephone. This was not just a Hollywood movie; it is documented to have been tested on actual human subjects. Another area which was researched by the CIA was the use of hidden subliminals in music to enhance hypnosis. This use of auditory subliminals to transmit hidden signals is similar to more modern techniques such as the Russian "acoustic psycho-correction" technology and the Lowery "silent sounds" technique (where a high-frequency audio carrier tone is voice-modulated). The FBI was reported to have investigated using the Russian technology to send the fake "voice of God" to Koresh at Waco, so clearly the FBI knows that such things exist. The Russian technology was acquired in the 90s by a Richmond, Va. company.

The point is that these techniques and technologies have existed in various forms and have been researched and tested for literally decades. The new technologies just open up even more potential for abuses of human rights (as well as any positive applications that the technologies might enable if they were to be used to actually help people). Human beings and governments have long conspired to harass certain individuals; only the methods change over the years. COINTELPRO, for example, has a long history going back many years.

In addition to comparing Naylor's book with Waugh's book, the article also compares TIs to people claiming to have been abducted by aliens. I do not want to get too much into that because the TI who was quoted as saying it would keep them "marginalized and discredited" was right. Even just mentioning the subject tends to bring in the space-alien connotations and associated ridicule. One main and obvious difference that seems to somehow get "overlooked" is that mind control operations are real. They have, for example, been investigated by Congress and are known to have been conducted by the CIA et al. In that way the issue of mind control is completely and utterly different from alien abductions.

Interestingly, though, the Air Force is known to have used UFOs as a cover story to distract from investigations of its classified aircraft flights. A similar use of UFOs as purposeful disinformation to discredit investigations into classified mind control experimentation cannot be dismissed. Consider, for example, the documents relating to Project Pandora at the DOD's FOIA reading room, especially the 469-page Project Pandora Operational Procedure document.

http://www.defenselink.mil/pub... Dead Link

Now Project Pandora, as the Washington Post article mentions, was an investigation into the use of microwaves to influence human behavior. That is solid, real, and scientific. The document above describes, for example, experiments with monkeys trained to work on tasks and then subjected to performance-degradation due to intentional microwave exposure. It describe studies of sailors exposed to microwaves. It includes results related to the effects of microwaves on EEGs and on heart rates in rabbits. Then guess what follows, in the Project Pandora Operational Procedure document?

What follows is a full-blown Majestic-12/Roswell UFO disinformation story. Yes, this "serious" government FOIA document discusses the supposed finding of space-alien bodies at Roswell. Really. The pages have written on them that they cannot be authenticated as an official government document, but what are they doing there in the first place? They do not have any relevance to microwave research, and the time period is not even the same.

It is curious to note what comes right *after* the Roswell space-alien part of the Pandora document: the transfer of the Pandora Project to the US Army in 1970, and 1977 Congressional inquiry letters into whether Pandora research included areas of "what is popularly known as 'mind control.'" This clumsy use of Roswell space-alien disinformation is almost breathtaking for its brazenness. One statement that does appear in the Operational Procedure document is the following (from the minutes of a meeting in 1970):

2. Definitive research in this area will also require work with human subjects, and ethical procedures for working with humans may conflict with security needs.

As one final note on alien abductions, I should point out that some of the people claiming to be alien abductees could actually be mind control victims, either purposely deceived with psyops exploiting (and/or inculcating) that belief system or else people who simply misperceived what really happened to them.

Following the comparison of TIs with alien abductees, the Post article proceeds to quote professional psychiatrists. The professional psychiatrists, as expected, assume a priori that all TIs are delusional and therefore are sick and in need of care. This is not a scientific attitude, but then again psychiatry has major components which are strictly political rather than scientific. Since the technology undeniably exists, and since documented mind control operations and mind control experimentation victims undeniably exist, logic demands that at least the *possibility* of exogenous harassment should be considered in any given case. Indeed, people subjected to severe harassment can suffer severe psychological *consequences* -- just like PTSD victims and victims of physical torture -- but these are the effects (sequelae) of actual harassment. What the DSM manual unscientifically (they admit as much in the DSM) classifies as "schizophrenia" is really a cluster of cases with roughly similar symptoms. It is actually made up of several distinct sub-clusters, corresponding to different causes. One such sub-cluster includes people who truly have been harassed and persecuted -- often by people who know quite well what the DSM labels as mental illness.

Of course it is not politically acceptable to admit that people -- citizens -- truly are harassed and persecuted in the United States. To admit that would require some action to stop it, and would focus attention on the perpetrators of such abuses. But then again, psychiatrists have participated in all of the historically documented mind control programs. And not just any psychiatrists, but the leading psychiatrists of their day. As a profession, psychiatry is in deep denial about its complicity with these abuses. As a profession (a supposed "healing" profession) it will not face up to even its documented involvement in mind control research. It will not acknowledge the documented victims of such programs and try to heal the damage that it helped to inflict on them. So, in this case, the profession of psychiatry has a serious conflict of interest.

In ending this commentary, I would like to again thank Ms. Weinberger for her relatively fair article on the TIs and their plight. I hope that the article will spur serious investigations into the allegations of TIs and will help lead to greatly increased oversight of the black-budget, special access programs where such technologies and techniques are being developed and researched."

Oh, c'mon! Wifi routers? If that were the case, New York City would truly be the city that never sleeps.
Excellent point!!! :D

What happened to his TV station signal theory?

Proven to be nonsensical by RF Engineer Sam Garfield. 500 MHz, which the private investigator mentions is concentrated around the headboard of our bed, is in fact TV channel 19 and shows no anomalies when measured with a RF spectrum analyzer.

Truly surprised no one has given you a plausible explanation for this . . . .

Occam's razor (also written as Ockham's razor, Latin lex parsimoniae) is the law of parsimony, economy or succinctness. It is a principle urging one to select from among competing hypotheses that which makes the fewest assumptions and thereby offers the simplest explanation of the effect.

I wrote a letter to my State Senator requesting investigation in to workplace harassment in an industry deemed as critical infrastructure thus heavily overseen by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). A short while later both my wife and I started experiencing bizarre phenomena that has seriously affected our sleep and wellbeing. Later, professionals proved the existence of unnatural sound and radio frequencies within our house that according to one investigator even altered his mood. :o


Using Occam's Razor I've concluded that the sudden onset of the strange events (which I'll go as far as to call torture) probably aren't caused by aliens or ghosts so...

Has the FCC been out to vist recently?

Not yet. I'm going to give the private investigator one more chance to substantiate his claim of, "a pulse signal that was captured as a rolling frequency between 100 MHz and 500 MHz, and is a constant signal." in our bedroom. The PI -David Shelton- of ATI seems almost afraid to redo the radio frequency portion of his bug sweep now that he knows his findings will be reviewed by Sam Garfield and Dr. Daniel Stancil.

Something to consider
I'm fine with the board the way it is too. Sure it has a few faults but in the end I believe that's what gives this place character.

1000 Members!
Jul 11 2012, 10:25 AM
We have grown quickly in the past year or so and soon we will have 1000 members. I was wondering if some people wanted to share any interesting stories about this forum or special moments in their gaming / collecting that came as a result from this forum in order to demonstrate how truly wonderful this forum is to our newer members.
This site is simply amazing thanks to the passion of the; collectors, players and tinkerers who visit and post here. We've got it all on this forum no matter how you choose to enjoy your N64 experience.

For those of you who actually play original Nintendo 64 game cartridges we've got plenty of people including myself who still find time to indulge in such classics as F-Zero X and Killer Instinct Gold. Of course it goes without saying that Super Smash Bros. is nearly a religion amongst some of us too.

Modders find this place near nirvana as you'll often come across some dolled-up N64 work of art by our resident artist extraordinaire zoki64. You'll also find plenty of info on replacing a worn out thumbstick or even how to mod a Rumble Pak so that it'll function without needing batteries. :o

Last but not least, this is an incredible site for N64 collectors thanks to such luminaries as Lithium017, ddr2nite and the living legend of N64 collecting finngamer. :applause:

Overall I'd say that this site deserves to have 10,000 members but 1,000 is nothing to turn our noses up at either. Long live Nintendo and long live the N64 and its software in all its various incarnations!
