Let's Play: Mupen64Plus

Who doesn't remember games like Super Mario 64, Goldeneye 64, NBA Hang Time, Starfox 64, Banjo & Kazooie etc...? Now you can play all of them! Mupen64Plus is a Nintendo 64 emulator and is available for linux! What else do you want?

A hard ch... Oh come on!

Mupen64Plus has its own native Linux client, so which kind of choice do you want to do?

Talking about performances...

First of all my hardware:

agp_aperture_size: 256
cpu: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor
cpu_ghz: 0.80
distro: Ubuntu 11.10 oneiric
kernel: 3.0.0-15-generic
machine_bitness: 64
memory: 3960
soundcard: HDA ATI SB at 0xfbcf4000 irq 16
soundcard_driver: ALSA Version 1.0.24
videocard_direct: True
videocard_driver_version: 4.2.0 NVIDIA 290.10
videocard_manufacturer: NVIDIA Corporation
videocard_ram: 1024
videocard_type: GeForce GTX 550 Ti/PCI/SSE2
x_version: X.Org X Server 1.10.4

As i said before for P-UAE emulator, performances does not depend by the OS, since it's an emulator. It depends by your hardware and by the OS itself. Anyway, on Ubuntu it works like a charm (Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit version)!


The installation takes about 2 minutes.
The program doesn't need any plugin. It provides a graphic plugin, a sound plugin and an input plugin. All you have to do is configure them.

  1. I have been surfing on-line greater than 3 hours these days, yet I never discovered any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you probably did, the web will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.
