What works

Installs perfectly. Default video and audio plugin are recommended. Runs out of the box with no configuration.

Plugin information:

Video plugins:
Jabo's Direct 3D8 1.6
Aristotle's Mudlord & Rice (requires vcrun2008 to be installed through winetricks)
-Take note that the configuration of Rice can be especially tricky, and may not work. Jabo's is recommended

Controller plugins:
N-Rage's Direct-Input8 V2 1.80a (works perfectly)
Jabo's DirectInput7 1.6 (buggy; not recommended)

What does not

As of latest attempt, Rice video plugin still will not load high-res textures as it should. The game usually crashes a few minutes in.

Additional Comments

DarwiinRemote is a great app for mac that allows you to map the buttons of a Wii remote to key strokes via Bluetooth; it takes some configuration to get the two apps to work together, but once you get it set up, it feels just like a real N64.

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.
