OK...so do I just use the zip files...or do I unzip them...some are .z64 others are .v64, some are .rom...

And what's this??

and necessary plugins for audio, graphical rendering (RDP), signal co-processor (RSP), and input. There is 1 included OpenGL video plugin, called RiceVideo. There are 3 other excellent video plugins being maintained by wahrhaft, called Arachnoid, Glide64, and Z64.

Do I need those plugins and where do they go?

Sorry, but this is a bit advanced, I'd like to install everything correctly.
The PND is self contained, no Plugin to add, they are already added (I tend to use main headline from official site from the softawre I ported for the text in the PXML).

The roms are better unzipped and all common N64 rom format are supported.

Once you have setup some "per rom" config, you will have some indivial files (with the crc as name)  stored in "appdata/mupen64plus2/pandora". Thoses are the files that can be distributed to other to share "per roms" plugins.

A wiki with compatibility can be good also, but not sure on how to sort so many variable (Rom / Plugins / Parametrer per rom & plugins / Overall rating per rom & plugins / build of mupen used / model of pandora & video driver maybe used) with just a grid....

I would love to have this files included in the mupen pnd. It would be great to run games out of the box.

Concerning retrode support: has somebody managed to use the retrode without a self powered hub? Would an Y cable allow to attach it to the OTG port while drawing power from the full sized port?


The retrode firmware should only ask for 100mA, so in theory it could work, but my retrode2 doesn't even try to boot when attached directly (via adapter) to the OTG port of my GHz (unlike several USB sticks I tested, even though most of them ask for 200mA and are therefore rejected).

its probably usb 1.0. The pandora doesnt have the hardware to support 1.0 directly on the port (usb hub do) 

You most likely dont need the powered part of the hub, a passive hub would work just as well (except draining the pandora battery).

So i made a Video with some Games for testing.

All are made on 1.2GHZ with Standard Driver and Standard Settings.

Still some Sound Errors but work fine for me.

Enjoy the Video:Choosing 480p is better ;)

Some Games have little Gafical Bugs but i think its the SGX on 1GHZ Standart Driver fault ;)
How the heck does this Video contain EMI-Music? (Its not available in germany, thanks to the gema)

OK, some minor success.

It seems to run z64 v64 and rom files.

Dr. Mario had graphic problems, Donkey Kong just plain crashed, Cruis'n USA would not continue without a save file...

MarioKart worked fine, but have to use nub instead of D-pad...

MicroMachines worked good

Ms PacMan Maze Madness was slow, New Tetris, slow but works, Off-Road Challenge slow but working

Penny Racers worked.

Any ideas what I could do to improve performance?

I am running 1.54 Super Zaxxon on a Rebirth clocked to 800.

For most Nintendo games at least you'll have to use the left nub rather than the d-pad (in the default configuration at least) since while the N64 did have a d-pad, few games allowed full control using it.


I generally find that I can use the gles plugin for best speed, but often errant textures, and the glide plugin for better accuracy but worse performance. I've not had a great deal of success with the other plugins.

It may be worth noting that with MarioKart and the GLES plugin, I get the halting problem bad and it's pretty much unplayable at time. Glide is a lot slower, but at least it's dependable.


Actually, on MK64 I've had the best success with the Rice plugin (not RiceES1). Nice and speedy and only very minor texture misalignment issues (on a quick test of Luigi Raceway at least).

@Kumaki, you have to experiment change plugins for game. For that, press {Y} when on a game to change it's plugin assigment.

For the slow ones, try GLES2N64 first, and than the Rice (GLES2 and then GLES1.1) plugin.

Before you keep testing plugins I'll post my latest test report here.

It contains 4 plugins tested with all the games I own.

I started every Rom 4 times ones each with Glide, Rice, Ricees1 and Gles2n64.

It was Pandora typing in train, so there might be lots of typos in the text.

Banjo Kazooie:
Glide: Perfect. No sound shuttering, no graphic bugs, no slowdown.
Rice: Sems perfect
Ricees1: Seems perfect
Gles2n64: Seems perfect
-> Doesn't relly matter

Banjo Tooie:
Glide: Crash
Rice: Crash
Ricees1: Starts bt crashes after selecting saved game.
Gles2n64: Crahs
-> Ricees1

Bomberman:
Glide: Stays black
Rice: Stays Black
Ricees1: Stays Black
Gles2n64: Stays Black
-> Doesn't matter

Castlevania:
Glide: Fast, sound shutters a little.
Rice: Not as good as Rice, Sound shutters more, Textures is worse, more gliches, like porple square around a flame.
Ricees1: Menu not displayd correctly (missing letters in saved game). No squares around fire, once the stage textures became all grey for some seconds. Doesn't display far away graphics.
Gles2n64: Menu better than Ricees1. Far away graphice not dislayd. Fire is good.
-> Glide or maybe Gles

Rice: Much better than Glide. Fluid gameplay, only minor shuttering in car selectin screen.
Ricees1: Car texture is not shown correctly, sometimes brown (sems like it's under the polygon)
Gles2n64: Menu good. Car selection screen slower music. Music shuttering at beginning of race when all cares are near each other.

It would be good to make a wiki page for the Mupen 2.0 compatibility with a four column tables indicating the results with each plugin. This way people will know where to find the info instead of going through this thread.
