Wow. Project 1.7 official isn't even out and yet you have the balls to demand the PJ64 team to add in a version that won't be out for years? They aren't close to being done with 1.7.

-Slow Audio? Sounds fine on my machine.
-Slow framerate? Most games run just perfectly fine on my end.
-Bad graphics? Please stop trying to run PJ64 off an Intel GMA. They look normal on my nVidia GTS 250.
-Cheat codes that work all the time? Not gonna happen. Cheat codes temporarily alter a game's memory addresses (hex editing) and are bound to cause issues every now and then.
-Stop games from freezing? Make every ROM work? This is impossible. Emulators can and never will be fully perfected, there will always be glitches and other bugs in them that prevent 100% compatibility from being a reality. You can get close, but perfection is impossible.
-No errors? Like I said in the above question, glitches can't be completely neutralized. Emulators work by tricking one architecture (x86 CPUs in PCs) into thinking it's something else (NEC R4300i, the 64-bit CPU from the N64); you're essentially emulating hardware through software. N64's were optimized for running N64 games. PCs were never meant or fully optimized to run N64 games (or other emulators for that matter). Think of emulators like this, a CPU used in a PC speaks English while the N64's CPU speaks Japanese; obviously they don't understand each other, so the emulator acts as a interpreter and helps the PC understand the N64; this is what an emulator does. It translates programming languages back and forth for the PC to understand, so the emulator(s) can run on a PC.

I don't work on creating emulators, but I think it should be perfectly possible to create a perfect emulator. The N64 is a finite machine, after all. In every way.

Maybe the quickest way to a perfect emulator would be to hack into Nintendo and steal the documentation and source code for the console and all the games we can. I don't know if it's easier to hack a huge technology company or reverse-engineer decade-old games consoles though...

Well, you know what I mean. People flooding the forums demanding unreasonable features bothers me to no end. The PJ64 team is busy enough as it is. Perfect emulation is all well and good, but we don't want PJ64 ending up like Bsnes and having prohibitive system requirements.

Yes, I agree, having a perfect emulator is a good idea, I don't know why we didn't think of that before

Wow, your're kind of an asshole. Project 64 1.7 hasn't even been released yet and your bitching about wanting a 1.8? What if the official release of 1.7 is almost perfect and fixes a lot of things that you listed? I know there is no such thing as perfect emulation, but come on. You clearly have no idea how hard it is to program an emulator. I don't have an idea either, but I would suspect it would be pretty hard. Give these guys a break.
