Post Plugin Information

The information given forth is written for those who need to know it in order to answer performance questions during emulation that are caused by the emulator plug-ins used but not definitively the main emulator itself.

Throughout the information here, a plugin is an add-on for main memory emulators supporting zilmar's Common Plugin Spec, the most accepted specifications for recognizing plug-in files which may be accessed externally by various emulators.
  • Project64
  • 1964
  • Mupen64
  • TR64
  • Daedalus
  • Apollo
  • Nemu64
These plug-in specifications are bundled with official releases of Project64. They define four types of plugins.
  • Graphics
  • Audio
  • Controller
  • RSP
Some emulators implement their own system for recognizing plug-in files, but those plug-ins are not discussed many times in Project64 user support because Project64 only supports zilmar's plug-in specifications.

A listing of plugins is organized in the next post.
