    You'll need:
    - A PTH08080 (Texas instruments)
    - A 100uF 16v or higher capacitor
    - A 1.87k resistor


    Wire up to N64 like so:


    However in this day and age many people trim off that section of the board. There are alternate wiring points in a section that cannot be trimmed as seen here:

    You're done.

    I'd recommend using a multimeter to check and make sure you're getting 3.3v out of the regulator before you try and power on the N64. You wouldn't want to kill the board by overfeeding the 3.3v line.
