Mupen64Plus is a multi-platform add-on N64 emulator that is capable of reproducing many games. Four MIPS R4300 emulators are included, with 32-bit x86 and 64-bit AMD64 dynamic rewriters, and the necessary audio, graphics (RDP), signal encryption (RSP) and input add-ons. There is 1 OpenGL video plugin included, called RiceVideo. There are also 3 great video add-ons maintained by wahrhaft, called Arachnoid, Glide64 and Z64.
Mupen64Plus does not have a GUI, so it can be difficult to use without using the front part. Unlike any other N64 emulator, Mupen64Plus uses its own specification plug-in, so it’s not compatible with or supplemented, except those specifically tailored to your specification. Glide64mk2 is an enhanced version of Glide64, an exclusive Mupen64Plus supplement. The variant hlevideo cxd4 RSP is a supplement to the MLE RSP Fatcat port for Project64. It seems to be the best combination to use in most games, although toasters may have performance problems. If the variant mk2 is too slow, try Glide64 instead. These are the default Mupen64Plus add-ons. Rice’s video supplement is also used with another N64 emulator, best known for its high-resolution texture compatibility, now enhanced as mupen64plus and supports two line filtering, spatial and anisotropic scaling textures up to 16x MSAA. There are many versions of this add-on fork, but it’s generally less accurate than Glide64 and can have graphical flaws in some games, but it’s pretty good for most others and pretty fast. The RSP addition by default seems to be slightly retouched by the Vanilla Mupen64 RSP port. Use this combination if you want to get the best graphics or have a lower computer and you can not handle it with a general configuration. The z64 is a z64gl port, a low-level emulation video add-on for N64 emulators. The Z64 comes with its own RSP, but cxd4 (Port RSP Plug Fatcat Translator) seems to be more accurate and optimized. This configuration is capable of playing tough games like Rogue Squadron with very few graphical failures, and faster than Project64 to start, but you will probably need a good computer to run it at full speed.
