Jabo's Direct3D8:
  • No pros, just cons.
  • Upscaled graphics.
  • Transparent textures are missing or flickering on newer GPUs (You can see a example in Super Mario 64, 'cuz the shadows are missing).
  • Saves screenshots as heavily compressed JPEGs!

Glide64:
  • Fixes the problems with Jabo's Direct3D8.
  • You can save screenshots as PNGs.

angrylion's Per-Pixel RDP with OpenGL:
  • Takes screenshots at native resolution, but saves them as huge BMPs!
  • Looks like a real N64, with fog and edge-marking, but some games (like Perfect Dark) won't work.
  • Uses a ton of RAM and CPU! In total, 3,2GB of RAM may be needed for correct performance!
