    Yes, there are 5 threads named "is n64 possible on the 3ds?". But there is no thread about @machinamentum and his N64 emulation research/development for 3DS. As we can see, @machinamentum is updating his github rather often.


    Please let this thread be about @machinamentums N64 emulation research. Don't talk whether n64 emulation is possible on the 3ds or not! Use the other 5 threads for that :P

    I'm starting this thread as I don't really understand what is going on! What does the latest update "Large 64-bit overhaul." mean etc.?

    considering you need a quite powerful machine for emulating the problem titles (rare games as goldeneye, banjo tooie ...) properly, I would guess the N3DS is way not powerful enough to do the job.

    my old core 2 duo is just powerful enough to be a perfect emulator for those titles. my iPad 2 cannot handle it. haven't seen those games on any handheld so far.

    I would like to see how well it works. I doubt it would really be playable, but it would still be interesting to see.

    Golden rule: If the PSP can do it, so could the 3DS. That said it wouldn't matter what kind of system you have because sadly N64 emulation isn't perfect. The Wii U emulator comes real close though, but I doubt the 3DS could handle anything past Mario 64 without sacrificing accuracy for speed.

    and even the PSP couldn't really do N64 emulation! it wasn't even powerful enough to get yoshis island (SNES) running properly.

    Its been a long time, I admit. But I'm almost 100% that I played yoshi's island all the way through with snes9x on psp.

    Edit:
    Yeah, see? Its fine.

    you probably didn't watch the video! you never played it using snes9x (TYL) because it is not smooth at all.
    the video shows the cropped gba-version that has way less visual content to emulate and therefore runs at nearly full speed.

    fact is: the PSP was too slow for emulating superFX games as yoshis island at full speed.

    Your right. The video description does say gba. Idk, it seems like I played it on snes9x, but now I'm kinda doubting that. I did play alot of gba games on the psp cause I never had an actual gba.

    This is not a general help or a pirate9loaderhax subforum but 85% of the threads in this section are about pirate9loaderhax, how to pirate better and how to properly fix some errors got when pirateing so who cares?

    IT's just useless to complain this is not a PSP subforum since the majority of the threads in this section are in wrong section :P

    Requires low accurate emulator to gain speed on o3DS.
    Well, as long as Super Mario 64 works accurately enough gameplay wise on full speed, then I'm happy so you could practice for runs where you want.

    You could just leave some things out graphics wise, such as shadows.

    Not going to be playable on an O3DS. Devices with a way stronger hardware struggle with N64 emulation, and the O3DS fights to run SNES emulation.

    Ha, ha ha, but seriously, this is supposed to be a thread about @machinamentum and his progress in the field.

    the deal is emulators don't require specs because the most crap cpu which is probably the one the old 3ds has can do with 30mhz what the n64 did with 90mhz.emulators they require good programmers like i had said before microsoft can emulate xbox 360 on xbox one while we cant play banjo kazooie nuts and bolts on pc. so unless we get it from nintendo there is no way its going to happen now people move along

    @machinamentum updated one hour ago. I would love to hear from the master how the progress is going :)

    I don't expect fullspeed N64, even on the n3ds (even though it is possible). I'm just curious about the reading of @machinamentums development!
