In order of importance, my list of the most important things to work on are Wiki, test roms, LLE/Improve Project64 Video, 64-bit, and Create basic open source audio plugin.

Secondly, is it actually possible to have working RNG while also having working netplay?

But I'm sceptical about the realism of making PJ64-Video more accurate.
It sounds like you're oversimplifying the current issues with N64 emulation. It's not as simple as "use GLideN64 or Angrylion's". Having a wiki would be great for keeping track of the current status of N64 emulation.

It's not possible to have accurate RNG while using netplay. They intentionally made it non-deterministic (which makes sense).

It would not be difficult to make PJ64-Video more accurate than it currently is .

I am not there yet, when I do get there I can see what happens.
I'm very glad you are giving it a try . There are plenty of solvable problems that don't require new hardware, to fix.

The situation is currently so bad that I resorted to using LLE software renderers to actually improve performance.. Something clearly isn't right. After working on HW renderers for a bit and figuring out how to improve performance for bottlenecks like copying frame-buffer from video memory, I realized that hardware renderers can do a lot better than what it's currently doing. I may be able to help improve the video plugin. I'm going to look into finally learning Hardware rendering for real this time .
