Ridge Racer 64 - Perfect in menu..once in race slows down considerably..a few graphics issues also but Its playable though:D

February 22nd, 2007, 02:55
Hexen and Goldeneye are not recognized. Zelda OOT and Master Quest freeze.

February 22nd, 2007, 02:59
I thought this was a joke! Man, this is amazing. How is everything with sound now? I wish SSB worked though.

February 22nd, 2007, 03:01
I posted this at the release thread as well (I hope this dosn't count as double posting lol,

StarWars Ep1 Racer: Dosn't load

C&C: Dosn't load

Goldeneye: Dosn't load

Mario64: works, big speed up

MarioKart: works, big speed up

ZeldaOOT: works, big speed up (village runs at 7-9fps)

Killer Instinct Gold: gets to title screen, won't register button input

StarCraft64: Dosn't load

Super Smash Bro's: Intro runs at over 40fps, hangs after title screen

Holy Magic 64/Quest 64: works, big speed up, with sound runs at 10-20fps!

South Park: Dosn't load

February 22nd, 2007, 03:33
Has there been any games that actually gotten worse for this release? Also, what is the slow down for sound? I'm gonna post some results hopefully soon, i just need to find my folder for my roms

Edit: Mario 64 is at pretty much fullspeed with no audio. 30 fps with no sound. With audio, the game is at pretty much R6/7.
Mario Kart i think is extremely close to full speed (i've only done time trial), with sound, i get around 2 seconds for every 1 second. its around 25 fps with sound. 25-30 fps without sound.
Mario tennis does not work. it freezes at the N64 logo. With and without sound

February 22nd, 2007, 03:58
Sound slows down the rom A LOT. but at least its there! expect a lot of work to be done on it in the future too. Mario kart is prety much full speed without sound... and who needs sound in language arts and sociology anyways.... that will only get you a detention... GREAT job :thumbup:

the one and only
February 22nd, 2007, 04:01
Kirby 64: Doesnt Load
Starcraft 64: EU/US dont load
Perfect Dark: Doesnt Load

February 22nd, 2007, 04:05
Kirby Chrystal Shards does not load up.
Spider-Man is at an uplayable rate without sound.
DK64 doesn't load.
Diddy Kongs Racing loads up, but you can't play with a blue screen.
Mario Party freezes up after the press start screen.
Nfl Blitz Special Editon freezes up after team pick. Some screen mess ups also.
I wonder the compatability of R9 is to R8.

BTW, i think maybe next release, since some games are getting pretty fast, maybe a cap for games at 60fps. I noticed with SSB menu, it's going like 75-90 and then it freezes

I have like most of my roms in .N64 and they don't work. Grrrr

February 22nd, 2007, 06:16

February 23rd, 2007, 00:05
Banjo Kazooie Gets Through Intro You Can get To The Part Where Your Supposed To Press "Start" But Wont Let You Like R8.

February 23rd, 2007, 01:51
Why is everyone stretching their roms? I noticed that one of my roms actually is 16x9. It added to the sides of the screen. I noticed it's stretched on the screen shots. I also heard someone got SSB working, not at full speed of course though.
More Combat:
007: The World is Not Enough runs at a slow speed but also has some graphical glitches. It is playable
Aero Gauge runs at a pretty great speed. With sound, about 2 seconds for every one second.
All Star Tennis 99 is at a decent speed.
Glover runs slower than R8's mario but is also playable.
Mario Party does not load.
Perfect Dark does not even boot up.
Rampage: World Tour is a little bit slower than full speed. Works pretty good with sound. The menus are still messed up.
Ridge Racer 64 is at a slow but playable speed. Do not even attempt sound, it's too slow. Also, it looks like there is a wall hack.
Rugrats - Scavenger Hunt is at a pretty good sound speed. You need it to play and it's not too shabby.
Yoshi's Story does not load up.

BTW, SSB loads up if you don't have dynarec on. It looks like someone took a dump, but it smells like peaches and cream.

February 23rd, 2007, 02:32
Where do people get Full speed on Mario :| I Honestly noticed very good speed,not full speed but good nonetheless, during the intro and in the castle,but I always get slowdown during levels.

February 23rd, 2007, 03:26
anyone found a working rom for paper mario? mines not working..

February 24th, 2007, 00:06
can someone please give me a link to where I can get this emulator, I can't seem to find it anywhere, I would really apreciate it

dark heart
February 24th, 2007, 00:43
earth worm jim runs at 30 and over most of the time!

and f zero X takes a while to load then in the menu, the icons and backround go really weird and it goes up to about 80 fps, and the music sounds perfect then it freezes upon selecting a play mode.

February 24th, 2007, 01:02

February 24th, 2007, 02:10
This emulator really improves games that were working at a playable speed. I just wish SSB would actually work *better*. BTW, to get Super Smash Bros (SSB) to work, you have to disable Dynaric Recompilation or w/e. You can't play it really but it does load up.

February 24th, 2007, 03:20
disabling that option makes the emu slow as hell, it loads SSB but then crashes after choosing your character

February 24th, 2007, 05:03
Paper Mario doesn't load past name. I have heard people getting past it though.
BTW, gunntims, please update first post. We actually have a good amount of games now.

Bomberman 64.v64 loads but freeses at game start
Bomberman 64 The Second Attack.v64 doesnt load

March 11th, 2007, 00:25


Hey people! I've actually managed to get to the menu in Super Smash Bros.! You have to turn off the dynamic recompilation. You can only play training mode, because it freezes at the Character vs. Link screen. It's still unplayable though, since you can't see the characters.

March 11th, 2007, 00:31

Yea thats already been known... But thanks for sharing for those who might not now or those who ask for pics.

Working #1: Rush 2: Extreme Racing USA

Rush 2 works 100%
Along with some minor lag, it works with almost no visual problems whatsoever.

Screenshots of it in action:




Not Working: Perfect Dark
Devhook loads up, then crashes.

Not Working: Mission Impossible

Loads up, the menu is really hard to read, but if you manage to start the game, it crashes before you can play.

Working: 007: The World Is Not Enough

Loads up and works perfectly without any major lag. There are very few cosmetic problems, such as the character's faces looking kind of messed up, but its fine otherwise. Oh ya, and Bond's gun is really huge so you can't see it unless you look out a window and see it as big as the side of the building across the street.

Working Pics:






I have way more, but I have to go so I'll post 'em later.

March 18th, 2007, 19:06
How are you getting Mario Kart 64 to work? Mine freezes as soon as I press start after options. What settings should I put? And do I use NTSC or PAL?

March 19th, 2007, 02:38
The New Tetris - Gets all the way in to levels, but the Tetriminos themselves never load, just the levels. Sound decreases performance drastically.

March 20th, 2007, 23:52
Here is a video of some games that worked on R9.


March 21st, 2007, 13:38
does anyone know if there is a separate "organized" thread for working N64 games? just interested in finding out if any of the wrestling games work... Wrestlemania 2000, WWF No Mercy, WWF Attitude in particular... thanks

March 21st, 2007, 20:40
