Can you make an N64 game?
Sure, otherwise no games would be released on the N64, wouldn’t it? But if you’re talking about homebrew games, it’s totally possible.
What programming language does the N64 use?
One thing you must keep in mind, though: coding for the N64 requires extensive knowledge of both C and MIPS R4K assembly. However, assembly will only have to be used in small routines that initialize the N64 (or handle exceptions). You also have to be familiar with the GNU toolchain (binutils and gcc namely).
Why was the N64 hard to develop?
History. The Nintendo 64 was released in 1996. At the time, The Economist described the system as “horrendously complex”. The difficulties were said to be a combination of oversight on the part of the hardware designers, limitations on 3D graphics, technology limits of that time, and manufacturing issues.

Do Nintendo 64 games have batteries?
Most N64 cartridges store save data in SRAM, or Static RAM, kept alive by a small battery. In this guide, I’ll show you how to replace the battery in your cartridge in about 10 minutes so that you can start saving once again.
Is it possible to write for the N64?
The N64 is notoriously difficult to program if you want to really take advantage of the N64’s power, and you’ll probably have potential audience of at most a few hundred people. Then again, this is true for many consoles that have lively homebrew scenes, so if you want to write for the N64 then go ahead, I’d be eager to see what you produce.

What is the difference between a N64 and a modern system?
Example is that the N64 uses a certian style of Display Lists where you the programmer are in complete control of the RSP/RDP where many functions on the RSP are duplicated on the RDP and without both it wont work. Newer systems can also cope with ‘leaks’ better since they have more resources to waist.
