    The dude who made this used copyrighted code from nintendo. Makes sense that they make a claim correct? Stupid dude.

    But isn't the point of this project that it's not the same code, just different code with the same end result? Reverse Engineering has been deemed legal for these things and none of the leaks were used in this project.

    The point is that there is the code for it, as opposed to having to hack it from assembly level (which is a nightmare), not be constricted by the limitations of the N64 or emulations of it, not have to emulate it and not have to spend 20 years or so recreating the code via legit means (observing it working, writing your own matching code, observing the formats and interpreting them).
    Nintendo's code was used to create it, it produces a physically identical result to Nintendo's code and no via coincidence either.

    If you did something like this in industry, other than to test your competitor's product for code stolen from you, you would be fired on the spot.

    "The leaks"
    True, and none of the previous ones either (Nintendo generally leaks like a sieve). That matters not one bit in this.

    Plot twist: Wildwood Law Group LLC is paid the game developer so that Nintendo use their services.

    I mean... it's a port. of Mario 64. It's just Mario 64, it's not a romhack, it's not a fangame; it's literally Super Mario 64 but on PC. If any game was destined to get slapped to the stratosphere legally by Nintendo, it would have been this. And apparently they are only going after uploads of the compiled project in which case... no shit? How did people not see this coming from half the globe away?

    Yeah. the 'fan source code' should be legally fine BUT the unincluded ROM needed to compile it will depend on if you own the game.

    this will lead to some huge mods, just wait until the HD texture pack is applied.
