Overview

In the project's own words:

"This is likely the most compatible N64 emulator you’re going to come across. It can play games like Resident Evil 2, Rogue Squadron, Pokemon Snap, and World Driver Championship “out-of-the-box” (without the need to fiddle with settings, plugins, or anything of the sort)."

The user interface, mupen64plus-gui, was written specifically for m64p using Qt5. The supported features:

  • Netplay using a central server hosted in the cloud for players to find sessions
  • Discord Rich Presence and automatic voice channel connectivity
  • Standard frontend features like pausing, screenshots, save states etc.
  • An auto-updater

As of 2020-11-01 m64p now features an newly added GUI option which enables LLE Graphics, this utilizes Parallel RSP (mupen64plus-rsp-parallel.dll) and Angrylion RDP Plus.

Parallel RSP is based on the work of Themaister and is a RSP option used in the Parallel N64 Libretro core

Together with Angrylion RDP Plus this makes fast and accurate N64 emulation possible in m64p.

Netplay
