    This isn't footage from my wii, but it's practically the exact same issue I am having (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7kdbp4pLKwg).

    What causes this Thanks.

    A massive amount of illegal wads there, I suggest you remove the links before you get in trouble.

    Sorry about that. Thanks for removing them. Forgot the rules. I'll read them later again

    WADs are potentially dangerous anyway

    Only if you don't know what you are doing or download from a non-reputable source.

    Is it just for Donkey Kong 64, or is it all N64 games?

    And where are you running the emulator and ROMs from? SD? DVD?

    Wii64 in general has pretty bad compatibility (not putting it down because I know they probably worked countless hours on it), but probably about 2/3 games don't work perfectly on it.

    That's been my experience as well (of the dozen or so that I tested, Super Mario 64, Kirby 64, and Mario Kart 64 were the only ones that had few enough graphical errors for me to enjoy). But that said, N64 compatibility is pretty bad across most emulators... the only seriously amazing one that I've seen personally is Sixtyforce, and coincidentally it's also the only closed-source one, lol. Go figure. Though N64oid (a sort of hacked up Android version of Mupen64) is among the best open source N64 emulators I've played.

    I've had no issues with Project64, its played every game that I've thrown at it flawlessly.

    On the topic of Wii64 though, in their last blog post back in September IIRC, they said they had made massive improvements to Wii64, including ROM hack support, but we still don't have 1.2... :(

    Fully agreed with PJ64 being the mutts nutts.

    http://emulatemii.com/ sept 2011 - supporting texture packs on wii64, but still working on dynarec for PS3 port.

    Will it ever see the light of day?

    Well, at least PJ64 works on most OSes and doesn't have OS discrimination (*cough* Mupen64 *cough*).
