TWL USG Sequencer Inspection (Mar 3rd 2010)
- - togemet2

This is a sequencer inspection cartridge with an unknown purpose. The menu layout is very similar to the previous NTR-AGING cartridges that were found, however, there are many more options. It’s possible that these could perhaps connect to a Wii judging from some of the options in the menu.

Many of the options that are selectable cause errors. I assume this is due to missing hardware which are essential for correct operation. This version is dated as being from Mar 3, 2010.

Gun (USA) (Prototype)
- - togemet2

This is an prototype of Gun by Neversoft dated April 7th, 2004 (based on timestamps in the executable). It is quite early and there are a range of various different debug features to mess around with. The build was found residing on an NPDP cartridge with two other programs, both being version 1.0.4 of the “Nintendo GameCube Memory Card Utility Program” tool from the SDK. Something interesting to see is that Activision seem to be injected over (possibly early) builds of Tony Hawk’s Underground 2, with just the main .dol being overwritten.

Please note: To run this build of Gun, Dolphin requires MEM1 to be set to 64MB to run.

007 - The World is Not Enough (USA) (Prototype)
- - togemet2

This is a prototype of 007: The World is Not Enough by Eurocom. On boot, you will be greeted by a passcode screen. This can be bypassed by following this combination on the analogue stick: left, left, right, right, left. It seems to be quite an early build with many placeholder assets. There are many differences everywhere, from the music, menus, the title, stages, etc. Often times the player’s weapons are invisible, and there are many other glitches throughout the maps.

Eurocom Data (40 Winks Alpha)
- - togemet2

This is a backup of various test ROMs, source code, logs, and assets used by developer Eurocom for their Nintendo 64 games. A very early copy of their cancelled game “40 Winks” is also present within the files and was fixed thanks to Zoinkity.

Screenshots

Screenshot Screenshot

The "rom" file on the Eurocom CD is a very early 40 Winks prototype.  It will not normally run without coercion.  The provided file fixes a bug that prevents it from running and also removes the RDB debug message printer so it can be used on flashcarts.

Bug Details:
  The bug is, for the most part, a timing issue.  The gfxproc thread is started before the SI queues are created during controller initialization.  The update command for gfxproc also updates controller input to ensure it happens every frame.  This isn't necessarily an issue, depending on event frequency and thread priority, but what's happening is within the controller init function the gfxproc thread grabs control and tries to use an SI queue that hasn't been created yet to read controllers that haven't gone through initialization.
  The fix just pushes the function that starts the thread after the controller init functions.

  The RDB print function is avoided by simply branching over it.  If you have a Partner64 or are emulating one you will still receive messages as normal.

  Note this uses the "sdk" bootstrap which does not use checksum during IPL3.

Controls:
  In game, pressing the R Button toggles collisions on and off.  Hold the L Button to halt gameplay.
  Normal game controls also apply.  A jumps, B attacks, Z in midair ground pounds, B+Z uses a magic scream, etc.

  Start pauses the game and opens a menu that allows changing your character, stage, etc.
  Use up and down to select an option.  A and B cycle forward and back through each option.  Start exits.
  Changes take effect on exiting the menu.

  Animation viewer controls:
  3D stick		rotate
  C-Up, C-Down		zoom
  C-Left, C-Right	change model
  R & L Button		advance forward & back through animation frames
  A Button		display model details
  Start			exit
