Mario Party 1 - Game Saves

Post by No Honor » Thu Jun 11, 2015 5:58 am

Is it possible to download and insert a 100% complete save file of games for Not64? I tried this after downloading a save file for Mario Party 1 (to unlock the last two hidden stages), but loading the save file either did not work (prior to playing the game) or caused the game to freeze (if the game had already started being played).

Is there specific save files compatible with Not64 anywhere?

Upload a save that works and the 100% complete save and I can take a look.

I forget what Mario Party uses, is it a .eep/.sra/.fla? Depending on what it is, it might just need byteswapping, assuming you're using the right ROM to begin with.

And yeah, both files are .eep

Add them here as attachments. As I recall .eep are stored in the correct endianness, so the issue is probably something else.

When I try to add them as attachments, it says "invalid file extension."

The file names are MarioParty.eep (the 100% save file, came from Project 64 website) and MarioParty(U).eep (the regular save file Not64 is using).

The link to the 100% save file is: http://www.pj64-emu.com/downloads/save- ... ,2/page,2/

There is also a program that will convert Project 64 save files to Wii64 (presumably also Not64) save files, called Wii64SaveSwap: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Wii64SaveSwap.

Problem with this is that it only converts .fla and .sra save files, not .eep ones such as Mario Party. However I've read that the reason for this is that .eep save files are less than 2KB, and so need "garbage data" to bring them to the same amounts as .fla and .sra.

.eep do not need swapping. Zip the file and upload it somewhere

Link to the uploaded 100% PJ64 save file: http://www.filedropper.com/marioparty

Link to the Not64 save file: http://www.filedropper.com/mariopartyu

That should do it.

Hi all,

I noticed those download links were down, so I managed to figure out how to do this myself using a simple hex editor- very easy to do. The 100% complete file is 512 byte and you want to add some "FF" block writing to make it 2048 byte. The easiest way was to download Hex Workshop (free, google to download it) and open the 2048 byte Not64 save file (which you will have on your SD card if you played the game and saved it, does not matter how much you have completed) as well as the file from wherever you downloaded the 100% complete version, and copy the extra lines of "FF" junk code from the Not64 .eep save file and paste it into the end of the 100% complete version you downloaded (the 512 kb one). Save that and make it the same filename as your rom, put it in your save folder (retaining the .eep extension as before) and boom! you have 100% completion :)
