Alright so as we all may or may not be aware, integration into Bizhawk is in the works for RA at the moment. This means that at some point in the future (Year or less from now, perhaps) we will have N64 support. I am finding N64 memory hunting and achievement mapping to be a most enjoyable task, more so than the consoles we currently support. As such, I have mapped memory of a few games locally, as well have faux-coded some achievements in text documents.

RA integration for P64 is now almost at public release stages. I find that I'm unsure which games the community would desire most, and am interested in hearing such.

I've gotten pretty far with Banjo-Kazooie, and it will be my first N64 set to be written out. I'm very interested in Paper Mario but without clear ideas for achievements I'm unsure of what memory I should be looking for, I would be more motivated to do so if I knew what kind of achievements would be interesting for it beyond stuff with badges. This would prevent a lot of savestating all around the story. After Banjo-Kazooie I planned to write out and finish mapping Gex 64, it seems rather simple but doesn't really seem to have potential for interesting achievements that much.

I worked on mapping memory for some games before the emu existed but I guess it didn't really help in the end.

Anyway, that's what I've been working on. The big question is: What are your top 3 N64 games you'd like to see a set for, and can you name one achievement/achievement type for each game you'd really like to see?

Not my top 3, but:
Yoshi's Story - achievements for melon only runs/individual levels (if it can emulate tolerably)
Mischief Makers - Getting all A ranks in a level set
Densha de Go! 64 - I like this series, even if it's Japanese only. Could at least have a small set.

I suppose this is rather jumping the gun but I don't see what harm it could do, it is fun even if they can't be uploaded immediately.
This WAS jumping the gun but now, 2 years later, it's actually helpful! Wow!

Here's the compiled list of everybody's ideas from this thread:

Yoshi's Story
achievements for melon only runs/individual levels (if it can emulate tolerably)

@Brian, Nope, you can do it in two without glitches.
You can beat all 4 dungeons in one cycle but it's pretty hard to do (there are glitches to make it easier though).
You can actually 100% the game without glitches in 5 cycles.

Still quite a few great games before the year 1997 are missing achievement sets, or are below 400 pts...so before talking about N64, I can wait for it. But when its possible, my top 3 N64 would be:

Star Fox: Get through a zone without any comrade/pilot going down.
F-Zero X: 1st place or 2nd with optional character, or vehicle. A leaderboard for score and race times would be great.
Wipeout: Same as above; 1st place without using offensive weaponry.

To
Brian and
Icyfeather , the whole "two cycles" thing counts the "prologue" cycle if you will (there's even a guide on GameFAQs, and a run on SpeedDemoArchives), so while technically Icy is correct, as far as anyone would consider the game actually beginning goes it would be possible in just one.
