Sixtyforce is a shareware Nintendo 64 emulator for macOS. It natively supports both x86 and PowerPC-based machines.

Sixtyforce doesn't support as wide a range of games as Mupen64Plus (the only other active Nintendo 64 emulator that supports Mac operating systems, aside from the obsolete TrueReality emulator), but still supports PPC: most games that work run at playable speeds on late-generation G4 and all G5 processors.

Like Mupen64, sixtyforce uses a plugin-based system to allow for a wider range of game support.

Sixtyforce is offered both as a free or paid version. The free version lacks save states and displays the "sixtyforce" logo on the bottom of the screen during play. In the paid version, which costs $15, saving states are allowed and the logo is removed.

Since version 0.9.2, the source code for sixtyforce has not been released.[citation needed] Thus, it is now proprietary software.


Note: The latest version (1.0.3) requires macOS 10.9 Mavericks or later. For PowerPC, use version 0.9.8 or earlier.
