    That is pretty amazing.
    All I have to do now is wait for compatibility with the EverDrive 64, and I'm golden. If only I knew how to code...

    Look at the Flag...
    Time to dig up the N64 I guess (once ED64 will be supported).

    Does this emulator support sound?

    8MB games on GBC? never heard of one, the largest game I own are 4MB...

    Not trying to be offensive but, do people still use N64 in this day and age?

    I'm also looking for support for the 64drive. Using the N64 controller will be great on GB games. Two big buttons and a great d-pad. Here's hoping!

    EDIT: I just stuck it in my cart in vain hope but alas I just get a critical error. :( Oh well, can't blame a guy for trying...

    Of course we do.
    People still go back and watch movies, read books, and listen to music they used to enjoy. Why wouldn't we do the same with games (especially when N64 emulation is forever inaccurate)?

    Nintendo 64 emulation is fine, many of the good games for N64 already have ports and remakes for newer platforms.
    This isn't just a homebrew, it's a emulator of a old handleheld on a old console. Nobody uses a N64 anymore and the effort in writing an emulator like this would be better used on writing/improving GB and GBC emulators for more current systems, like android. I'm not complaing about the devs, they have my deepest admiration for spending their free-time on something for the comunnity, but in this case, the end-user is such a limited public that I wonder if it is worthy all this effort.

    Well, if N64 emulation is fine you could always use this GB emu on your N64 emu then everyone's a winner. :)

    RSP, the graphic chip still isn't emulated, many games have missing graphical effects (for example, in Mario 64 when Bowser disappear after being defeated, there's a sort of transparency + pixelating effect on real hardware, on emulator, it just disappear in transparency, the extra effect is missing, same goes for many other games like Zelda MM/ Conker etc...) (BTW they are also missing on the official nintendo emulators for Wii/WiiU, what a shame).

    Nobody except millions of retrogamers and families who can't afford anything better,
    I've been following the N64 emulation scene since the start, and trust me if I'm still using my N64 there's a reason.

    Minor graphic glitches, N64 emulation may not be perfect but it's still just fine,
    I don't see why keeping an N64 just for that


    Millions?! You're insane if you think that much of people still use it.
    Families who can't afford much are probably going to buy a PS2 or a Wii.
    In rare cases you will find a N64 for sale, and if you find it surely is used.
    Nobody but retrogamers buy a N64 in this day and age, this is a very limited public, and the public using this emulator is even less.

    How are you going to start with this:
    And then proceed to criticize the developers for creating it, and the users for using it?

    Just because you may not find it useful doesn't mean it's useless.

    The hell are you talking about?!
    Get the facts straight, I never criticized the developers of this emulator nor the users.
