What works


glN64 v0.4.1

Jabo's DirectSound 1.6 (sound plugin). This works acceptably, but does produce some stuttering and wine spits out the following message quickly while it is running:

fixme:dsound:DSOUND_MixOne problem with underrun detection (mixlen=11532 < primary_done=11536)

(The values for mixlen and primary_done are different in each message.)

Jabo's DirectInput7 1.6 (input plugin)

Saving and restoring save states.

What does not

Many other plugins.

The default Direct3D video plugin.


What was not tested

Most non-basic features, including cheats.

Additional Comments

I have been able to get Project 64 to run quite well, with a bit of work. I am using the 0.9.20 wine package built for Ubuntu Dapper Drake from on Debian etch. Here's how I got it to work: 1) Download the Project64 installer from the Project64 site. 2) Install using wine. 3) Get the glN64 plugin from, and put it in your Plugin directory located in the Project64 installation directory. I used glN64_v0.4.1.dll (md5sum c96e244c2f8c8b31e7e51faedca190c9) 4) Run Project64. Click Options->Settings and set the following: Graphics plugin: glN64 v0.4.1 Audio plugin: Jabo's DirectSound 1.6 Input plugin: Jabo's DirectInput7 1.6 5) Click File->Open Rom and select a ROM image. Note: I have found that it is necessary to go into the Tools->Options dialog every time Project64 starts before trying to start emulation, or wine will crash.

HowTo / Notes

READ IF: You have installed Project64 on your Windows partition.
When you load up Project64 for the first time using Wine, if it's installed in your Windows partition, it won't be able to load ROMs, because it's looking for a different directory. You'll need to point the program to the ROM directory in your Windows partition (generally /media/disk/Program Files/Project 64 v1.6) change "disk" to whatever your primary hard drive is named in your Linux distro.
