    The fact that both the front and back label don't perfectly line-out raises a red flag for me, however checking the rest of the blog of this Jimmy130 guy makes me comfortable again and actually thinking this might be the real deal. Awaiting more detail eagerly! :)

    edit; seems like in '08 at this very board the Mario 64 DD version was already discussed; http://www.assemblergames.com/forums/showthread.php?18294-64DD-and-Super-Mario-64

    So there you have it, it's most likely real, however it will *only* be a carbon copy of the cart version on a DD disk.

    There was A video on it on youtube and I have the guys name around here somewhere, but he turned the video private after about a few months. From memory it had a white load screen like doshin 2. Here's and old write up.

    That video was faker than fake, as with most of the stuff on his channel being exaggerated.

    I guess this was just made to show the load time differences? It wouldn't make since otherwise. Mario 64 was released in 1996 and is 8mb. There is no advantage of putting this game on a disk. If the rom is real and released won't this greatly help the 64dd development scene? We know how to emulate the cart version. But now that we have the exact same game released on both cart and disk we can easily pick out the differences needed to run them?

    What a nice find! I wonder if this version contains some beta/pre-release stuff :)

    If this turns out to be true, all we have then is an Early N64DD disk from when it was called the Ultra Disk and a carbon copy of the original Japanese version of Super Mario 64... it's still an interesting thing

    Can anyone find one of those and try to dump it? Especially you, RetroJunkie.

    I can't remember who the owner is, all I remember was he told me he paid 10 grand for it.

    Yeah I thought there was no proper way of dumping N64 disks yet? And that the dumps made previously were incomplete, missing some important data.

    I would love to know what (if any) differences are between this and the cartridge version is. Wonder if it supports the rumble pak like the shindo version does.

    My point is I haven't any clue who owns It ,but now that I have found some time I was able to find the youtube account of who owns( or owned for all we know it was sold) Here's his youtube. Now that I was able to figure it out the other user may give him an offer he may not be able to refuse, But he might probably just pester the hell out of him to dump it even though If my memory serves me there isn't a process to do that with commercial disks.



    EDIT: just realized the new owner is a member and has poster in this thread.
