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.

Makes DK64 a hundred times better, except for one thing...

Reviewed By: ShadowOne333 on 27 Apr 2020

Just tested this game out, and wow this really makes Donkey Kong 64 a whole lot more enjoyable game that before.

Gone is the padding, the obnoxious backtracking, and going back to a barrel to switch to the right Kong just because you missed a banana in a forgotten place. Now with this hack, you can pick up everything on your first visit anywhere, including the first 3 levels of the game.

Oh that’s a Diddy’s banana? No worries, I just switch to him on the spot and grab it, same for anything else. This, for me, makes the game much better, and I wouldn’t recommend playing the game without this now.

Except… There’s currently no way of properly playing this hack if you don’t have a flashcart of any sort.

The hack doesn’t work on PJ64 without glitching out after the title screen (at least now without the updated GlideN64 plugin I believe). And in Mupen64Plus Next (through RetroArch), the ROM works great and all, except for that fact that it doesn’t save at all. I also tried using the SRAM fix patch posted on the description, but that simply crashes Mupen.

So without any proper way to play it on any current emulator, it is hard for me to recommend this hack to anyone outside of flashcart owners. Emulator is the defacto ease of access option for the majority of users. If the hack addresses the saving issue with Mupen64Plus Next, I’ll gladly change my recommendation to a no-brainer “yes”, but until then :P
