    How to speed up - general guide

    If you have a good PC with a good video card, you should be able to play most games full speed at reasonable resolution and graphics quality. If you can not, then read on.



    1) Determine the bottleneck if turning on the real time statistics in your emulator. Both 1964 and PJ64 support such a thing. Your emulator will then show the CPU percentage usages on the status bar.
    Most CPU should be used by video plugin and emlator r4300i core.

    2) Using higher speed counter if the r4300i is using the most CPU power. Almost all emulators are supporting counter speed change. For 1964, you can use 4 or 5 instead of the default value 2.

    3) Using a faster emulator instead of your current one.

    4) Using Azimer HLE audio plugin 0.13b or 0.30(old) instead of Jabo LLE audio plugin



    5) Disable RSP.dll or config RSP to pass both audio and video to audio plugin and video plugin.

    6) Using lower resolution in your video card. Using 640x480 instead of 1280x1024, you could get 100% speed up.

    7) Using DirectX instead of OpenGL, you can usually get over 30% speed up.

    8) Using 16 bit color instead of 32 bit color. You can get 10% speed up.

    9) Try different video plugins, could make big difference.




    Enjoy your game.

    That's ok

    I saw that Rice's Daedalus is an excelent Plugin, it is fast with good Gfx, great!........... and using it with Basic Audio 2.0 for 1964, the roms run at great speed.............

    For Pj64, I saw that I can use Jabo's D3D and Jabo's Dsound, but looked too that Rice's Daedalus plugin works too in Pj64, but not like 1964....................................

    So, if you have a slow Video Card, you can try to use Rice's pllug...

    If the only game you want to play is Mario64, you should try Corn. It is the fastest emulator out there.

    Corn is awesome. Someone should continue the project. I don't see why it should be stopped just because Zelda doesn't work with the static recompiler. Corn would be a great solution for those who can't afford a good system.

    The author did not want to continue the project, that's all. But I think both corn and ultrahle should not be developed further (imo), because they're basically using hacks to attain such speed (ie, not real emulation such as 1964 or pj does).

    1964 is your friend! The best emulator for the slow computers out there!

    What's so bad about hacks. I think that the best case is to exist different emulators with different methods (Compiler(Corn),HLE(UHLE),MLE(1964,PJ64) ,mid-lowE(NEMU 0.7)). And we miss real only LLE emulator with LLE graphics, but it'll be slow this days. Maybe after year or two it'll be alright.

    That 16-bit tip is something I didn't know. I am going to do that!
