I own all of the N64 games I want to play, so this is completely legal. I don't want to use a computer, so please help me out :). I'd like to play the banjo games without lag for example.

I play Mario 64, GoldenEye, and Zelda 64 OoT on my original Xbox using the UnleashX dashboard and the Surreal64 CE emulator. Runs those games great. Any games more complex than those get choppy and some don't play at all.

Just do it on the PC, buy yourself a 360 controller and it'll work great. PC is by far the most flexible and powerful out there, so easy to manage to. Just do it on PC.

Sorry my favourite emulator is Project64 for the PC

You may have problems running Banjo-Tooie on Android (Mupen64 Plus AE)

Xbox. The only times it is really worth it is either on the xbox or in some senses the Wii. I would not rate either next to a PC (though many games on both are very playable) and even then N64 emulation is not the best.

Also I am not sure what goes with the Wii official emulators these days but I am mainly here to say if you want to play banjo then there are some great XBLA ports that sort much of the framerate issues and more that dogged most of the N64.

Why not just do it on PC? You can get a USB gamepad for around $30. Alternatively, you could do it on a high-end Android smartphone or tablet.

PC: Project64, Mupen64Plus

Android: N64oid, Mupen64Plus AE

the 360 is the best other console to play banjo on with updated visuals and all that jazz but if u wanna emulate ur probably best off with something like an ouya which has an ok emulator and is still being worked on.

Unless your playing on your personal backed up copy it's still illegal.


No, when you buy a piece of software, you're buying the license to run the game. The cartridge is simply physical DRM. As long as you have the license, you have full permission to run the exact game entitled in the license, despite where the code came from.

All forms of backup, be it from your own legitimate copy or downloaded from internet, and emulations, are technically illegal under law.

For example, even ripping.copying movies from Blu ray you bought is illegal. All these actions qualifies "circumventing DRM", hence illegal.

Source? Because my understanding of copyright law is that you are 100% wrong. But maybe you're right. I don't study law, but what you're saying sounds like BS.

Regardless, does it even matter? I doubt the feds will crack down on someone who downloaded a ROM of a 20 year old game for personal use. Unless you're commercializing it, there's nothing to fear. At least in my country.

there isn't a Xbox emulator that's actually on par with the PC ? (don't know for sure, since I don't have the first Xbox ...I'm just asking about it)
