I set out today to get all stars on Mario 64.
5 stars in, I realised I was pretty bad at this game, lacking the muscle memory since I never had a 64 as a kid. (Give me Gex or Crash and I can clean up.)
The thought occurred to me that it would be much easier to just savestate scum most of the difficult tasks.
How does Mario64 hold up as emulated? Any advice and which emulator runs it best? Difficulties with the controller setup?
TIA

Forget emulation, find the homebrew port v8. 60 FPS, mostly smooth analog camera control, better textures/models than all stars, zero input lag. No save states but plenty of cheat options, most importantly, picking up star does not exit level!

Nice one. I don't want to cheat more than save state. In that case, is there another option?

Is this hidden in the settings somewhere?
