Alpha Release of Full Speed Nintendo 64 Emulator on the Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Shea Silverman shared updates and a tech demo that has lead to an Alpha Release of Full Speed Nintendo 64 Emulator on the Raspberry Pi:

Mupen64plus has been updated and now plays some N64 games at almost full speed!

Welshy from the Raspberry Pi forums has written up a great guide on how to compile it and run it, as well as how the settings work.  You can download the compiled binaries here.

This is a total alpha build, and is very rough around the edges, but the progress is awesome, and I am going to put this into PiMAME as a test….
