Hello, my name is Robby, I'm new to this forum. It's a pleasure to meet you all. :) I was wondering if anyone knew of anyone who owns N64 protos, specifically those of games that are unreleased. :n64: Here are some of the games I had in mind:

Jest
Twelve Tales: Conquer 64
Echo Delta
Freak Boy
Glover 2
Dethkarz
Moon Jelly (Space Jelly)
Buggie Boogie
Mini Racers
Quest 2
Hyperdrive
Timber the Tiger
Totem's Adventure
Zenith (Climber)
64 Wars

I would endlessly appreciate any info on the whereabouts of these games and of course I will respect any requests for confidentiality. Here's my email- RobAllegretta@yahoo.com Please and thank you immensely for your valuable time.

There are various prototypes of N64 games available, some of games that were never finished or commercially released, others of games that were finished and brought to

The ones I have are:

40 Winks (Europe) (En,Es,It) (Proto).z64 (this is apparently the full, unreleased game)
California speed (PAL).z64
Die Hard 64 Prototype 1 2000-03-15.z64
(Die Hard 64 was never finished, but these three roms contain early level builds)
Die Hard 64 Prototype 2 2000-03-15.z64
Die Hard 64 Prototype 3 2000-03-15.z64
Dragon Sword 64.z64
Frogger 2 (U) (Alpha) [!].z64
Glover 2 (Older Version).z64
Glover 2 (Unreleased Beta Version - Newer Build).z64
Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine - PAL.z64
(the never commercially released PAL version of the NTSC game, )
Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 6 V1.2 (Japanese).z64
LoZ Majora's Mask - Debug - Press L, R and Z simultaneously on the save screen.z64
Mini Racers.z64
O.D.T. (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) (Proto).Z64
O.D.T. (USA) (En,Fr,Es) (Proto).Z64
Perfect Dark _ntsc_debug_DC.Z64
Robotech - Crystal Dreams (Beta).z64
Super Mario 64 Super Debug Menu.ext.z64
superman64_prototype.z64
(apparently this is better than the final, released version of the game, in some ways)
Tamiya Racing 64.z64
Tommy Thunder.z64
Toon Panic (Japan) (Proto).Z64
WildWaters (Unreleased) .z64


These prototypes vary from early, very limited versions of the games, to so close to the release version that there's no discernible difference to the final, released version of the game (other than some changes to the game's code, that as a player you'd never see). There are other existing prototypes I don't have that are available on the 'net, such as Turok 3, an of course lots of prototypes are owned only by collectors, who prefer not to release them to the public. I don't know how many unreleased prototypes exist, of course.

And not the same thing, but also of interest to N64 fans, are the fan-made English translations of Japanese-only N64 games. The ones I have are:


Animal Crossing (T-Eng) [!] (Manually set the time).z64 (I've heard that this can crash, but I don't know as I've not tried it)
Bomberman 64 - Arcade Edition (English translation).z64
Chameleon Twist (J translated to Eng).z64
(Apparently the Japanese version of this game is far superior to the NTSC/PAL versions*)
Custom Robo (English Translation - Final - 8-Sep-2017).z64
Densha de Go! 64 ( Train game - English Translation 17-April-2017).z64
Doubutsu no Mori (J) [T+Eng2007-03-22_Brandon Dixon].z64
Last Legion UX (English Translation - 4k eeprom save).z64
Sin and Punishment (Tsumi to Batsu) English - use EEPROM4k eeprom for save.z64
Wonder Project J2 - English translation via patch (REMOVE rumble pak)[!].z64

I can't post download links, sorry, as this forum doesn't allow the spreading of rom files, so I'll e-mail you now.

Thank you so much for all the information. You have quite a list. I didn't realize how many roms are out there. I was hoping to find the actual cartridges themselves, although I can see why the ROMs would be valuable to most people. Thank you for everything and the effort you put in. You're a swell person. :)
