This is the most used emulator for playing Nintendo 64 games. Runs very steady, and supports video, sound and controls plugins. Runs on every Windows operating system from Windows 98 and up, for Mac users we recommend Mupen64.
Mainly version 1.7 is recommended for playing and speedrunning Super Mario 64 hacks, although not all speedrunners accepts this emulator for use, version 1.6 is then the most optimal choice.
Version 2.0 and up will run most hacks fine as well, but has problems with some of them. If this has been better with Version 2.2 and up is unknown.
Some errors preventing certain hacks from running can be solved this way:
Open the Rom, after opening, click "Options" then "Settings...". Click on the Options tab, and uncheck "Hide advanced settings". Click the "OK" button and open the setting again. More tabs should be open now. From there, click "Rom Settings". Set "Memory Size" to 8MB and "Counter Factor" to 1.
