Hi. I was searching the net for an N64 emulator for Linux and I stumbled across Apollo (which isn't for Linux, but that's how I found it ). I've tried 1964, Project64, Corn, Mupen, Daedalus, Nemu64, Tr64, TrWin, and UltraHLE, and Apollo v.03 is definately the fastest interpreting emulator I've used.
I'm running a Sony VAIO (Pentium 4 2.4ghz with 736mb RAM, Windows XP Home SP1).
I couldn't get the video plugins that came with Apollo to work, so I used Jabo's Direct3D6 1.5. That with Azimer's Audio v0.30 (Driver Rev 2.2) along with N-Rage's Direct-Input8 V2.182a worked rather well. I notced with Mario Kart 64 that Apollo would lock up for ~ 5s and then resume as normal.
