Info on the Japanese versions.
The GameShark is one of the many cheat devices released on the Nintendo 64. The later "Pro" versions include a parallel port for firmware updates and advanced code creation, which many v3.3 units disabled to reduce costs. It also works as a pass-through NTSC region adapter by fitting all consoles or games.
Rip these resources.
Some of the resources from the PlayStation version, like button icons, are still present in the Nintendo 64 version.
Present at the beginning of the ROM.

Later versions of the GameShark added support for newer games and more preloaded cheats. Pro versions added a much more detailed menu.
The various revisions and regional versions have different menu backgrounds, or sometimes simply black.
