If you want to play GoldenEye N64 on your PC, then you have come to the right place. I should also inform you that since 2008, GoldenEye became playable online flawlessly. Yes, it's true! Enjoy one of the best shooter games ever and play multiplayer online. I have created a full tutorial on how to setup GoldenEye on your PC to play online.

emulators, emulation, Goldeneye rom: Illegal or not illegal?

First things first. The world of emulation is controversial. Companies like Nintendo deem emulation an illegal activity. Why? Because you need a GoldenEye ROM to play on the PC. In other words, its the contents of your GoldenEye N64 cartridge. Please, before moving forward into the realm of playing GoldenEye N64 on your PC via emulators, please visit the following links. We can debate the legal issues all day long about GoldenEye rom and how you came to attain it. The fact is, our Gameshark pro devices which are connected to our PC, can in fact dump a GoldenEye rom onto our PC. There is no downloading of roms in a peer to peer setting.

How does dumping your GoldenEye game and creating a rom differ from copying an old LP into a cassette version? I have no idea. An LP was obviously designed to play with a turntable and needle. The GoldenEye N64 cartridge game was designed for the Nintendo 64 console. The LP when recorded onto a cassette tape now is playable on a tape player, which is not able to play the original LP obviously. So, you now have the content of the LP on a different format called cassette. When I dump my GoldenEye game onto my PC and create a GoldenEye rom, is that different than when I copy my LP onto a cassette tape? Please, if you can explain the difference, please do.

I'm not talking about illegally distributing a GoldenEye rom that was dumped using a Gameshark pro device. I agree with Nintendo. GoldenEye roms and other downloading and exchanging of games is destroying their business. It's not fair to anyone, and I do agree. Having said that, I created my own GoldenEye rom. I didn't have to circumvent and copy protection to make it playable in my N64 emulator. Therefore, what is the legal issue involved? I'm not a lawyer, but please read the articles and links below so you have an understanding on GoldenEye roms and the legal issue involved in emulation.

1. Nintendo

"How Does Nintendo Feel About the Emergence of Video Game Emulators?

The introduction of emulators created to play illegally copied Nintendo software represents the greatest threat to date to the intellectual property rights of video game developers. As is the case with any business or industry, when its products become available for free, the revenue stream supporting that industry is threatened. Such emulators have the potential to significantly damage a worldwide entertainment software industry which generates over $15 billion annually, and tens of thousands of jobs."

This quote from Nintendo summarizes their feeling on this issue. Please take note of their information and legalities.

2. The Entertainment Software Association

"Isn’t it legal to copy video and computer games as a backup as long as you own a legitimate copy?

U.S. Copyright laws permit making a "backup" copy of computer programs for archival purposes. However, the right to make backup copies of computer programs for archival purposes, as embodied in 17 U.S.C. Section 117(2), does not in any way authorize the owner of a copy of a video or computer game to post or download a copy of that game to or from the Internet or make such copy available to other people for their use. Section 117(2) only gives the owner of the copy a right to make an archival copy of the actual copy that he/she legally possesses, not to make a copy of the ROM that someone else legally possesses, nor to post an archival copy of his/her original copy for distribution. The law clearly does NOT provide any right to sell "backup" copies. In fact, Section 117 is quite explicit in stating that any archival copy prepared under Section 117(2) can only be transferred to another person if, and only if: A) The original copy is also transferred, and only with the authorization of the copyright owner, and B) The transfer is part of the sale of all rights in the program."


If you have other sources of the legal or illegal viewpoints of emulation, please discuss here on the forums here. This website does not support illegal ROM game distribution. The debate for me focuses on what is the difference from me taking a music cd that I own, ripping it, and playing the Mp3 (ROM equivalent in my opinion) in a media player? I bought and own the music (or game) so what is the problem with me playing it on the computer with an media player(emulator being the equivalent to a media player with my music example). If you have the tools or programs to rip the game instead of music, is it not the same thing? Is one legal and the other illegal? Okay, you see the tremendous debate and BS involved here. The fact is I don't want this site and topic to be about GoldenEye ROMS. Peace.
