Doom 64 doesn't work at VC, however on Not64 i think it will work but with some minor graphical glitches.

I will try to do it as a SRL running in latest Not64 (v20210829) as a Wii VC channel.
it works on wiiu n64 vc xD also the game is dark as hell and you cant see the maps on not64 but play fine if you put brightness to max in the settings of the game itself.

Oh, i was referring to original Wii VC and not Wii U VC xD

There's a hack (NOT A ROM, but a patch) for "increase brightness" to Doom 64 (NTSC & PAL): https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/5544/

Wii64 (on glN64 GFX) is a bit outdated (last version was in 2020), and some games has issues or are broken; however Not64 (which uses glN64 GFX too) is most updated (last version was v20210829, launched in August 2021) has better compatibility with most N64 games, recently Diddy Kong Racing was fixed and can be playable at 100% (including Adventure Two) without glitches.

But, Wii64 in Rice GFX has a bit better compatibility with other games, but emukidid's one has some issues which is not present in some Mupen64 versions (such Donkey Kong 64 camera glitch). Fortunately, @FIX94 managed to fix those issues in 2017, in this mod of Wii64 (glN64 GFX & Rice GFX): http://github.com/FIX94/Wii64/releases
(Donkey Kong 64 is only playable on @FIX94's Wii64 Rice, because emu_kidid's one has issues)

Anyways, if you're going to try these, here's the links:

Wii64 glN64 & Rice GFX (original from emu_kidid): http://github.com/emukidid/Wii64/releases
Wii64 glN64 & Rice GFX (with some mods and fixes from @FIX94): http://github.com/FIX94/Wii64/releases
Not64 Second Edition (from @Extrems): http://github.com/extremscorner/not64/releases

Recently, emu_kidid (the author of original Wii64) is now adding all fixes from @FIX94's mod, but we don't know when this will be finished and released to the public.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    Nah every console starts early with low libraries

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages
    Gift
  • Xzi @ Xzi:
    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
