It has already been explained why N64 emulation has no place going to x64 elsewhere.

The fact that the majority of plugins which no longer see improvements made will be rendered incompatible.

i have no idea why x64 is better than x86. i have an x64 so don't start saying i don't know anything, afterall, experience is a big part of knowledge.

i know it has a bigger ram limit and emu say they are naturally faster, but why? to be honest x86 was great and btw, you just can't beat xp, vista is rubbish.

x64 only offers performance increases where the hardware is natively 64bit. the n64 has a few 64bit interconnects but is still limited by 32bit connectivity where it matters most.

I think its rather funny how Squall is the only one who has an ounce of clue in these forums, and the rest of you all take that as an insult and claim he's doing it to increase his post count.

There's no reason to.

I'm not an emulation savvy, but multicore is useless and a complete waste of time and effort. Your slowdown problem has to do with core optimization, not your PC speed.

yeah but, now with talk of wine coming to android. Now with CPUs like the intel atom or AMD e350 or c50. i could possibly see a need for it but, i think it'c capable of running on single pentium 4 thread, possibly Pentium 3 though i never got it running under windows 98 to test that.

it may not ever need more than 1 core to run smoothly.
