    1. What is to be expected from this upcoming update. Will it fix graphical issues that some games cause because I cant even play DK64 and Mario party has noise issues.

    2. When is the update coming, I read all of the news and I wasnt sure if this was mentioned or not?

    The team behind Wii64 has made statements in which they were making a complete re-write of the code for dynarec to improve speed and compatibility. They also mentioned some new features such as a new video plug-in and such, but haven't touched on anything such as features in the very next beta (presumably 1.2), nor a specific release date. Since it has been a while since the last update, I would expect to see some improvements to compatibility with games, but other than that, I wouldn't expect too much.

    Wii64 r448, beta 1, and beta 1.1 were built around the glN64 plugin. This version (which I'm guessing would be beta 2) uses Rice video instead for better compatibility.
