Interpreter is more stable, usually more accurate, and avoids more issues/bugs.
Last question, thank for your reply in advance.

did you mean when using pj64 interpreter CPU core, project64 still recomiles N64 instructions to x86 instructions but one instruction by one instruction.

or the interpreter is exclusive from dynamic recompiling and dynamic recompiling only happen when using recompiler CPU core.

or interpreter and dynarec are irrelevant, depends on how the emulator is designed.

I still feel confusing.
