DK64 - Tag Anywhere

Hack of Donkey Kong 64

Description:

This patch lets you use D-Pad Left/Right to instantly tag to the previous/next Kong in the rotation.

The mystery menu options are unlocked without capturing banana fairies for your convenience.

Made with love by Isotarge, with help from the DK64 crew.

This patch will work on real N64 hardware via flash/dev carts. Wii U VC inject has been tested and is working.

Definitive way to replay DK64 without backtracking

Reviewed By: MattKimura on 23 Apr 2020

Absolutely phenomenal hack! This is mandatory for all DK64 playthroughs. I’ve been wishing for a hack like this to exist and here it is, had no idea it was a thing til a buddy showed me. This hack is pure convenience and not game breaking. Having all the kongs early means being able to complete worlds 1-3 without lacking any kongs. Also this hack kills the need to backtrack at all, all kongs are now together. I can’t imagine how much faster the game will be with this hack, would make for an interesting playthrough. I never wanted to replay this game at all forever, but now I definitely will play the game more often. It feels just right switching characters, doesn’t feel hacky or tacky. Doesn’t work well with PJ64 but it works just fine on Mupen64plus_Next on Retroarch. Just a heads up.

I highly recommend this hack, one of the most useful improvement hacks I’ve come across and I collect improvement hacks.

Edit: The game refuses to save when used on emulators. Me and a friend are having the same issue. The game saves just fine on vanilla DK64 unpatched. Making the only way to play the game is with save states. It’s a huge bummer considering how much potential this hack had.
