    The open source development of Mupen 64 Plus AE v2.5.0 is now in testing!

    The developers over at Paulscode.com forum
    Paul, Gillies, and Xperia64 have released an .apk of the new version!

    Remember some of the games that wouldn't work right on any android 64 emulator?

    So what works so far?:
    :arrow: Donkey Kong64 collision elements work!
    :arrow: Banjo Tooie less crashes (needs higher tier GPU tegra4+)
    :arrow: Paper Mario less graphic glitches and no crashing! (opacity on text doesn't show correctly)

    What doesn't work?:
    :arrow: Doesn't support 5.0 version of android! (They are looking into it)
    :arrow: Some of the old video plugins are still loaded as default and cause problems (switch to Glide64 Final 10th anniversary)
    :arrow:

    Troubleshooting:
    If a game will not open or crashes often , be sure to redownload (a different version or region)and uncompress.
    If a game consistantly crashes upon start, try restarting rather from save state.
    If you are having low fps, use the newer video plugins and have frameskip on.
    If low fps persists you need to either wait until v3 or get a more powerful device.

    2.5.0 is meant to be mainly a bug fix update for those games. 3.x is where all the interesting stuff is. After 2.5.0 is up, the 2.x branch will likely be closed, and 3.x will take over the master branch.
