Wii64

Wii64 is a Nintendo 64 emulator that was released only recently. This is because the Nintendo 64 console is very difficult to emulate (even PCs have problems with it). So maybe the emulator isn't perfect yet, but at least it gets the job done. Here is the compatibility list, it's amazing for being a beta 1. Really shows how much interest the developers have in this emulator.

Required:
* An SD card (Best results are with non-SDHC cards, SDHC will only work on 4.0 or above) or USB device formatted to FAT(32).
* Highly recomended: GC controller or classic controller

Setup



Computer ----------------------

Let's see what every option does:


Load ROM

As the name says, this option loads a rom into the memory. Roms can be loaded from SD, USB (needs cIOS202) or DVD (needs DVDx).
Once you loaded the rom, you will see some info about it, then you'll return to the main screen.


Current ROM

Gives you the options to save and load your game (both normal saves and 10 save-state slots).
You can also view the ROM info here.
