I am trying to run the USA/NTSC version of "Hey You Pikachu" on a PAL N64 using Passport Plus III. The boot cartridge I am using is the EUR/PAL version of "Pokemon Stadium". When I switch on the N64 I get nothing but a black screen.
Please advise. If "Pokemon Stadium" is not a suitable boot cartridge, would "Pokemon Snap" be better?
Hi, I am knew to the whole blogging scene so please bear with me if I have posted this in the wrong spot, but I am also having some trouble with my recently purchased "brand new" Passport Plus III.
Would anyone please be able to tell me if it is possible to run the Japanese version of "Mario Tennis" on my PAL n64 system?
I have tried using "supermario 64" as the boot cartridge, and also tried various others. I have pushed the Passport Plus cart into as far as it goes (so that the III isn't visible). I've tried it with my expansion pack in and then with the jumper pack in instead. Yet nothing happens when I turn my n64 on.
I realise that some newer games aren't supported, is it possible "Mario Tennis (JAP)" is one of these?
Also the game I really wanted to play is "Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine (NTSC)". Is this game supported by the passport plus III, and do you think it is possible that this may still work using my Passport plus III?
Please test the N64 passport plus III as follows. 1. Plug the boot card to N64 passport plus III to the port at the back. 2. Plug the N64 passport plus III to your N64 console. 3. Turn ON the console, and the menu should appear.
note : 1. Even you don't plug in the game card, the menu would still appear as long as the boot card is connected. 2. The boot card must be the same region as your console. That is both them are PAL, or both them are NTSC. Super Mario 64 is a very good boot card as it doesn't has any protection. 3. If the boot menu doesn't appear, it may be a bad contact problem. For this case, please use a rubber to clean the port of the N64 passport plus III and try again.
i got a passport plus 3 for christmas in hopes to play my NTSC games here in Germany on my PAL console. I turned on the console with NHL breakaway 98 (PAL) as my boot card for Mario party (NTSC). After selecting the right code it worked perfectly. I then tried to get harvest moon working, but I think the code I found online was wrong because it didnt work. Since then, when I try turnin on my console using the passport plus 3 and any arrangement of games, it doesnt work. I cant even get to thr main menu, all I get is a black screen. Is there any way to fix this? I tried cleaninh all surfaces and disconnecting/reconnecting everything and nothing works. If there is no way to fix it, does the passport plus 3 come with any return warranty? We dont have s shop here in Mannheim, but is there somewhere I can send it to get it replaced?
I have just bought a passport plus III from eBay and I can't find where to buy a boot cartridge to play my games. I have a PAL console and Mario Party 2 and 3 NSTC cartridges. Has anyone experienced any problems with these games on PAL format?
