Question about colored wires

The wires that plug into the back of your VCR

I forgot I let my friend borrow my wires a couple days ago for his N64.

I was wondering is it possible to use SNES or Gamecube Wires to make the N64 work?

Yes. SNES, N64, and Gamecube cables are all the same. Some people, like me, only use one set for all of those systems.

-_-

Not quite true. Most are compatible, but there are a number of exceptions. For example, although composite cables (yellow, red, white wires) will work with all, the Gamecube's component cable (red, green, blue wires) isn't compatible with the N64 or SNES. Neither is the European RGB SCART cable.

And... although the S-video cable will work with some EU games, it can produce color variances in others. US N64's don't suffer from this problem when using S-video.

Anyway, the composite cable works, and that's what matters. ^_^

Yeah, I use the composite for my N64/Gamecube when I use them in the bedroom. I could use a RGB and a composite but it's a pain to change the wires....

Same here, except just one Gamecube.

Also note that the second model of the SNES does not support S-video.

I guess I actually only have one Gamecube now, considering my brother decided to make a lunchbox out of one...

Well its not a true lunchbox, he kinda just smashed a bunch of stuff out of it. I'll tell him to make it better though. What better thing to bring to your senior year of high school than a (purple) Gamecube lunchbox...

I never thought about it before but it would make a pretty good lunchbox.

That kind of crap bothers me. Do people not have sentimental value towards their game systems? Your brother is heartless.

Sounds like good payback to me. And Wii plays Gamecube games so you're no worse off. B)

Not quite. Playing Gamecube games on Wii isn't the same experience as playing them on Gamecube.

Maybe I'm missing something then, cos I've not noticed a difference (apart from navigating the Wii menu at start-up). What other differences are there?

The Wii doesn't make the weird chirping load noises like the Gamecube does.

I've got a real Gamecube. It's the purple thing in my bedroom gathering dust. ^_^ Nah, I'm kidding; it can't gather dust cos it's in an airtight box, and it's been there pretty much since I bought my Wii.

So... is that it? If so, then the experience is almost exactly the same. You even use a Gamecube controller. Still, I'm intrigued... Why do you think having a "real gamecube" makes the experience any different?

It's hard to say. There's something different about opening up your Gamecube, putting a game in, and clicking the lid back down... than there is sliding a disk into the Wii slot. Getting so used to that, and then doing something different the next day, it's just not the same.

I'm the type who has a LOT of sentimental value towards his games and game systems. I know I'm not the only one who feels this way towards Cube games on Wii.

Actually, you know how I feel. I can prove that point. Why do you have your Gamecube in an airtight case, when it's not difficult to go get a new Gamecube anywhere? In fact, why do you not trade your Gamecube in for credit towards a new game if you can, in fact, play any Gamecube game on Wii, with the same experience?

BTW, it's the same thing with any other system I own. I've got Zelda Collector's Edition on Gamecube, yet I'd rather play OoT on N64, and the first 2 Zelda games on my NES.

Also, some Cube accessories don't work on Wii.

Not in the UK you can't. Most stores stopped stocking new Gamecube's last year, and now they're rare even on eBay (UK). :(

No point. I'd get about 15 if I traded in my cube. That's not even the price of a new game. :(

I think that's kinda different because of a few things. Take OoT as an example; the games ported and, although it looks a bit sharper, the control on the Gamecube pad isn't as good as the N64 pad. This isn't the case when you play a Gamecube game on a Wii, though, as you use the original controller... sadly... (I'd prefer to use the classic controller).

That's the real reason I don't trade it. If I did I couldn't use the Game Boy Player.
