What is Project64?

Project64 is a Nintendo 64 emulator for the Windows platform. It employs a plugin system that allows 3rd party developers to implement their own software. It is an emulator, meaning that the user has the option to run ROM files that can be extracted from a Nintendo 64 game cartridge.

    There are a lot of flaws that Project64 has. I'll list some of them here:

    • Included malware in the installer at some point, eventually was removed.
    • Also currently counts as nagware, as there is a 30 second wait period when booting up the software multiple times and asks you to support the emulator
    • Older versions gave Windows 10 users BSODs.

    The emulator is decent and does work (even if it takes some time to configure), but it's just not the best option on the market. Shame that it's the most popular one right now.

      Whilst it's plugin-only as of writing, it is not [nagware]( and has multi-platform support unlike Project64.
