update: this also works on the original game, but the conditions are different in that you have to light the cartridge on fire to get it to work. nintendo 64s don’t read cartridges that are engulfed in flames.
update: there is another way to get this to work on the n64 version. to do it, you have to smash the cartridge with a hammer! this is caused for similar reasons as the live and reloaded solution!
