    Default got it!

    i finally got wipeout 64 - saw a console for 16.99 and the game for 8... couldn't really say no!

    strangely the graphics don't seem as nice as 2097, but then i don't have a scart lead for the n64 so that could be the difference.

    favourite track so far is qoron IV, nice and fast without too many tricky turns

    Default wipeout 64

    I love wipeout 64. a little more forgiving(but not much) than wipeout xl but plays almost identical. the graphics are a little smoother but slightly blurrier(taken care of by s-video). lots of people say this game stinks compared to xl, but it is really almost exactly the same game.

    i like it, it's like wipeout 2097 part 2. i find the ships are a little easier to control, the stay where you put them.

    rhys - ship are the same as wipeout 2097 except for the piranha (which i haven't unlocked yet) which has weapons.

    definitely worth the money i paid for it.

    it was a bit of a shock when i first got quaked but now i prefer the computer shipd having more weapons

    also, i just found out the scart cable from a game cube works fine with an n64.

    jmoid:

    Bummer... I just got mine today and I paid 25 for the console ad 14.99 for WipEout 64! Where was this low-priced utopia of which thou speakst?

    Anyway... lovely game. Pop-up is rather disconcerting, and although the music tracks are good (kudos for including that cool one from the Propellorheads) I don't think there are enough of them. Circuits and gameplay are pretty cool.

    The controls are nice and smooth, but I had to learn to move my thumb on the stick differently from the ones on a Sony pad... the PS pads make you splay your thumbs further away from the rest of your hand, so you sort of have to move your thumb sideways to move the stick up. When I played WO 64 my thumb lay much closer to the rest of my hand, so I had to move it in a different fashion.

    Shame there's no way to get the music off the thing, though... I want those PC music tracks in my mp3 player (the others I already have on CD).

    Actually there might be a way
    I did this when I was still playing 64, and chose to use the Red, Yellow, white wires for fun
    You take the red, yellow, and white cords to your VCR and Nintendo 64
    you connect the cords and the VCR together.

    The red, yellow, and white cords are connected to the VCR, test it first to see if it worked. (change the channels on the VCR from 1,2,3,4,etc) and put a tape in the vcr and press play. Then turn on the nintendo 64 and press play on the vcr. If you can see the game and not the tape, you have done it correctly.

    Place your blank vhs tape inside and hit record.
    Now, of course when you are recording and listening to the music tracks, you have to watch/listen very carefully. Because each song doesn't stop it keeps repeating. Other wise you are going to get the whole song you wanted and also a little bit more of it again.

    all the songs on Wipeout 64 together is less than an hour.
    Also Jmoid you want to get the music from the ending credits on WO64 it's worth listening to.

    After your done, if you have a DVD/VHS recorder, take the tapes you have and record them on cd
    Check Ebay or some other shopping network place for the unit
    It should cost about three hundred maybe four hundred dollars plus tax.
    "I thats how much I bought mine"

    Use that and record all the songs you had on the tape, put them into the cd, Wala, Wipeout 64 the soundtrack.
    The cd works with computer and mp3's
    enjoy
    Also get a DVD R/RW disk
    regular R/RW disk didn't work for me, but you might have better luck.
