    I apologize if its been asked before, I am in a bit of a hurry with a decision..

    Is it perfect or near perfect? Or is the N64 and everdrive the way to go?

    No N64 emulator ported yet. You could go with n64, everdrive or emulator for wii etc..

    You can get an n64 emulator for retronx now.

    If you don't mind playing games at 8fps :P
    At this point there's no perfect solution for N64 as all N64 emulation seems to still have major flaws.
    This is one of the reasons why some N64 game carts are insanely costly after all these years imo

    Smash 64 plays close to full speed on Lakka.

    The major issue is no sound unless you use bluetooth.

    wii64 had pretty bad compatibility though if you really want near 100% compatibility everdrive will always be the answer even pc emulators struggle on certain games

    I want to thank all you guys...Ill make up my mind soon enough.. depending on how a few games work on the Wii, I might stick to that and get an N64 controller.....but if I get that itch I know the ever drive will be perfect.

    If you want good performance, you can use lakka.tv (linux) which runs at good speeds. Afaik it runs gamecube too.

    You need to launch it through one of the many linux loading payloads. You cannot boot it from Horizon, or SX menu.
    The downsides are you have to be at a pc everytime you want to launch it (unless you have a custom payload launcher/dongle). Also, it can cause issues with the screen.

    RetroNX, since it runs through hbmenu, has no hardware acceleration (for the time being), thus if you want a playable emulator, lakka.tv is the best way to go.
