    Project64. Hands down.

    edit: Also, if you didn't know about it, Zophar's Domain is the shite.

    Be sure to try different plugins, though. Some plugins give better game compatibility.

    All answers much appreciated.

    anyway, if you stumble upon project64 1.7.0.55 that's a total fake, use official 1.6 instead [​IMG]
    the latest beta is 1.7.0.49, for donator only

    Project 64 is by far the best if you don't want online play.

    what's the major difference between 1.7.0.49 and 1.6? What games run better on the newer one? and one more question, what are the optimal settings(and/or plugins to get) to play Mario Kart 64(primary game I play).
