There's no debate that GLideN64 is the most accurate HLE video plugin. It's unnecessary to try and explain all the ways in which GLideN64 is more accurate. If accuracy was the #1 criteria, I'm sure Angrylion's would be the default.

The problem with GLideN64 is that it requires relatively new hardware and has worse performance. Glide64 is more optimized overall. FB read performance will not be an issue if per-game FB notification is implemented.

What should be addressed are the flaws, not what it excels at. Being good at one thing doesn't necessarily make up for flaws. Which criteria is important, varies from person to person. I hardly see the suggestion "well go fix these problems yourself", as a real solution.

It's a shame some folks resort to plain false advertising to get others to use a different emulator. I wish these people kept their invalid opinions to themselves, instead of spreading FUD. PJ64 isn't even my main N64 emulator, but I still acknowledge it as the objectively best overall N64 emulator.

That's one of the reasons I support PJ64. I like what zilmar stands for. Much respect for that.

Exactly. I would do the same.

This is so important! Graphics is the biggest issue with N64 emulation. No question. Either performance is lacking or accuracy and you have to pick your poison.

I can definitely relate to getting ridiculed / hate for trying to do something good. It sucks, but I just have to move on and go my own way. Gotta stay positive and keep movin forward!
