As the name states, some of the more emblematic levels from well known games on the Nintendo 64 have been turned into GoldenEye multiplayer maps!
I released some other maps prior to these patches and I even named the project as Classic Nintendo Maps after the third version. For release #6 I changed the name again to Golden Nintendo Maps in order to differenciate it from an uncoming Perfect Dark compilation. This last release includes the content from all previous releases:

version 1
+Kakariko Village from 'The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time'

version 2
+Peach's Castle from 'Super Mario 64'
-Added Sogun Studio logo (thanks to SubDrag)

version 3
+Forest Temple from 'The Legend of Zelda - Ocarina of Time'
-Kakariko Village (new version optimized for console, as an alternative patch)

version 4
+Blue Resort from 'Bomberman 64'
+Holiday Island from 'Pilotwings 64' (original idea by radorn)
-Two patches with maps optimized for console and emulators
-Added maps to Solo Missions mode so you can roam freely in them at full screen!
-Rearranged multiplayer level selection screen: Basement, Complex, Bunker, Archives, Caverns and Facility are playable up to 4P! (but some will fall in uncomming releases).
*Kakariko Village
improved framerate
fixed grass textures
rearranged allocations which mean no more blackouts or texture issues
*Peach's Castle
added Peach/Bowser portrait trick (console only as no plugins emulate this effect properly)
improved some greyscale textures
corrected tree-clock colors
rearranged allocations which mean no more blackouts or texture issues
you can kill the fish in the tanks with explosives (console only)
*Forest Temple

improved some greyscale textures

version 5
+Big Boo's Haunt from 'Super Mario 64'

*Kakariko Village
splitted version in multiplayer for the emulator patch as in console patch and lighter setup for
3P and 4P on both patches to boost performance
*Holiday Island
added sky and ocean in emulator patch for 1P, 2P, 3P and 4P. In console patch added sky and ocean
for 1P and just sky for 2P. 3P and 4P remain with no sky.
*Big Boo's Haunt
fixed bookcase door (thanks to Wreck)


GE_GoldenNintendoMaps_v6_console.xdelta -> This patch contains optimized versions for real hardware. Make use of your flashcart!

GE_GoldenNintendoMaps_v6_emulator.xdelta -> This patch contains optimized versions for emulators, with better framerates and longer drawing distances. Some maps will not work on console or perform very poorly.

Choose one patch to inject in the rom. You must patch the rom using the GoldenEye Setup Editor 4.0. You can download it from:


-You will need the '*.xdelta' patch and a unflipped 12MB rom of 'Goldeneye 007'. A *.z64 rom should work.
-Open the GoldenEye Setup Editor.
-Go to 'Tools' and then to 'Xdelta Patching'
-Select 'Apply GE xdelta Patch'
-Select the original 'Goldeneye 007' rom
-Select '*.xdelta'
-Save the new file 'GoldenEye.rom'. You can rename the file, but you must keep the .rom extension.


If you are using Project 64 you need to change some settings in order to make the rom work smoothly.

For Project 64 1.6
-Load the rom and then, in the emulator menu, go to 'Options' and 'Settings'.
-Select 'Rom settings'. Change to the following for GoldenEye:
CPU Core Style: Recompiler
Self Modifying-Core Type: Change Memory and Cache
Counter Factor: 2 (setting it at 1 will improve performance but also cause some accelerated timing effects).
Check marks by: Large Compile Buffer, Register Caching, SP Hack, Use TLB.

If you are using any other version of Project 64 you have to copy the rom settings from the original GoldenEye rom to the Classic Nintendo Maps rom settings.


Only if you know how to use the 'GoldenEye Setup Editor'
I rearranged the level slots in order to have my maps organized in a better way. This means the slot you see on screen doesn't replace the previous slot in the original GoldenEye. You should look for these slots in the 21990 menu if you want to extract the files.
