Nice. How's the clearance on those? CR2032s just fit in those cartridges as is.

Third-party N64 memory cards, rumble paks, etc generally had slightly thicker PCBs than OEM ones; so the expansion slots on my childhood N64 controllers had pins that were bent slightly too far to make adequate contact with official accessories. I went in and bent all of them back into position with an eyeglass screwdriver. It worked on one, but I actually fucked up and broke the port my second controller, so be careful if you wanna try it.What was the problem with it? I opened up a Transfer Pak to clean it a few months back, and there's not a lot in there lol. Was it a badly seated cable or something?
It sucks that most third party controllers don't work with the Transfer Pak. Luckily, Pokemon Stadium 2 will let you plug it in to the second controller port and play Gold/Silver/Crystal/Red/Blue/Yellow with the first controller, which means I can sit back and play with a wireless controller. Hopefully the Switch N64 controller will be compatible with the Transfer Pak...
Ah, I see. I did use a third party memory card as a kid but not all that often, so my controllers seem fine. The problem I had with my childhood N64 controllers were that apparently my sister and I were absolutely filthy children.

The Nova "doesn't go"
I think you misunderstand human nature here. While the intended meaning is clear, if you're looking for a way to take the mickey out of somebody's car, it's right there. And everybody who's looking for a car to buy will also see the jokes coming.An old businessman's tale I'm afraid. "Nova" is a latin-root word. Nobody in a place where there's even a risk of that meaning "doesn't go" would fail to recognize what the car's name is. I believe snopes used the comparison example of a hypothetical "Notable" dining set collection
Not sure about the Game Genie but I know early NES games had thicker boards. If you replace a NES cartridge connector they recommend making sure the first few games you play aren't from the first few batches (eg: don't be a Tegan and ruin your NES by trying to play Mario/Duck Hunt on your brand new connector).Oh dear. Didn't the original NES Game Genie also have that issue with the PCB being marginally thicker than it was supposed to be?
I hear the RIPS IPS V5 kit for the DMG is crappy? Is that right? V4 was nearly perfect, so I'm shocked they've messed it up.
