and roughly how much that would take up on the internal flash drive thingy for the wii?

Wasn't the largest N64 game Conker's Bad Fur Day?  It needed the expansion pack and everything.

Perfect Dark, undisputable.

Largest N64 carts were 64MB (Megabytes) and to my knowledge one of the only ones to use that was Resident Evil 2 due to the compressed videos.

I believe it'd come down to Banjo Tooie, Perfect Dark, Conker's Bad Fur Day, and Jet Force Gemini.
#6 Posted by Davey_B (229 posts) -
Banjo Tooie, Perfect Dark, and Jet Force Gemini are 32MB carts. The only 64MB ones that I can recall are Resident Evil 2 and Conker. I believe those are the only two that exist, but I could be wrong.

I can tell you some of the least, heheh, Super Mario 64 was only like 8mb

Donkey Kong 64 also needed this. That was a long game..

Megaman 64 was in the same boat, but it seems it had a 32MB ROM.

Although resources say that Paper Mario and Pokemon Stadium 2 used the 64MB ROMs.

Perfect Dark didn't even run its single player campaign without the expansion pak.

Most N64 games were in thge 16-32 range.
Now games like Perfect Dark, Dk64 and RE2 were around 45-50.
The single largest is Conkers Bad fur day, At 60.

I'm fairly certain that Nintendo compression these N64 games even further for the VC. Compression technology has got a lot better in the last 10 years.

RE2 resides on a 64MB cartridge, this is a fact. So does Conker. I think a lot of you guys are confusing the expansion pak with cartridge size. The only thing the expansion pack did was add more memory to the main system so that games could take advantage of the added memory to allow for better features (higher resolution, better textures, more players during multiplayer, etc.) in certain games. The largest games are Conker and Resident Evil 2 which are on 64 MB cartridges. Pretty sure DK64 is on a 32MB.  Now the actual space that it takes up is another matter all together.  I believe the original poster never differentiated between cartridge size and actual ROM size.

I am pretty sure that LOZ;Ocarina of Time is to date the most full cartrige game. I could be wrong but I am pretty sure. I don't know the exact number of memory it would take up but it would be a lot.
#17 Posted by alpax (696 posts) -
The largest N64 game has to be Resident Evil 2. Its the only one that has CG surpressing the drawback of the cartridges. CGs take up a lot of room.
#18 Posted by sailor232 (5102 posts) -
Yip I'd say Resident Evil 2 and Conker.
#19 Posted by lightningbugx (625 posts) -
Looking around at rom sizes, Pokemon Stadium uses at least 45MB of its 64MB rom.  I do not know how full Paper Mario got on its 64MB rom but it is said that it used a 64MB rom.

#20 Posted by SuzumeCake (4347 posts) -
..what....wha.......t?.. WHAT!??????

how could they squeeze RE2 in a 64mb cartridge?
my brain hurts D=

I don't think OoT would have been more then 32mb... Conker was 64, but that was probably due to it being fully voice acted, and RE2 had FMV's hence it's large size.

^^^ he's right ^^^
#23 Posted by merch (4235 posts) -
the whole re2 game was pre rendered bckgrds and they compressed it and they compressed the videos so that it would fit the contrls sucked on the 64 but i think they should remake it for ds.
#24 Posted by thegame458 (1326 posts) -
LoZ Majora's Mask also was said to have needed to expansion pak

The expansion pack gave the N64 so it could render larger worlds at a higher resolution. That has nothing to do with the size of the cart itself. RE2 and Conker's Bad Fur Day used the biggest carts that I know about. In theory they could both be ported to the DS with little hassle :)

Donkey Kong64 was pretty big that needed the expansion pack

Theycan't remake it on consoles, that is true. However there is nothing stopping them from doing what they did with diddy kong racing (another rare game) and porting it to the DS.

Perfect Dark but I love that game.
#30 Posted by kidrock17xp (2972 posts) -

Ahh the good old days. Get Force Gemini is truly one of the greatest games of all time. It almost rivals with the PS2 with hardware.

#36 Posted by bofe1234 (3046 posts) -

Either Perfect Dark or Ogre Battle 64. Ogre battle is noticibly heavier than other games, too ;)

how many blocks would the game take up on the internal hard drive though? LIke does it actually take up the straight amount that was on the cart when it was released or does nintendo compress them a little?

I can imagine that the files could be compressed, but that does not mean they are.  And even if the files are compressed, the files will have special overhead for the channel graphic and prevent someone from pulling ROMs from one Wii and distributing them across the internet somehow.
