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:
cpu: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 955 Processor
distro: Ubuntu 11.10 oneiric
soundcard: HDA ATI SB at 0xfbcf4000 irq 16
soundcard_driver: ALSA Version 1.0.24
videocard_driver_version: 4.2.0 NVIDIA 290.10
videocard_manufacturer: NVIDIA Corporation
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.
Feel free to send me an email or leave a comment if you got some problems or if you just wanna ask me a question. I will always answer you!
