Exclamation Graphic glitches

I was playing Zelda majora's mask, and I'm having a relatively serious graphic issue. Squares instead of sparkles. The main problem is that my hearts at the top left show up as just one big square that mimics the 'bigger and smaller' zooming movements that legend of zelda usually does.

Becuz of that I have no idea how many hearts I have to begin with, how much damage I'm taking, etc. so it's a problem.

When I spin around as a deku runt, colored boxes fly from his hat instead of... whatever is supposed to. probably sparkles.

The fireworks on the end of day 3 all show up as colored squares, about the same size as each individual spark.

When fairies move around fast, squares (colored the way they are supposed to) are the trail instead of the fairy sparkles.

When I take damage, a big red square about the size of my character appears momentarily.

When I blow a bubble, it explodes and a big red square about the size of the explosion appears.

Now although most of these are just annoying, the heart thing is a real problem.

How do I fix it? I'm using all the default plug ins, and pretty sure all the default settings too. This must be happening to other people as well, since it started like this. I must be missing something obvious.

Edit: Also the "music notes" dont appear when they are teaching u new ocarina songs, and the lost fairies appear as orange boxes with wings.

I do only have the minimum system requirements to run project 64, but I don't think it's a performance issue, since the graphics aren't appearing slow, they're appearing wrong.

ah yes, well i do have the minimum specs.
shader functionality? so... if the specs aren't good enough it literally shows up... as squares? how the game even know the specs aren't good enough? smells fishy to me.

if your graphics card doesn't support the shaders required by the plugin then you will get certain graphics that show up as squares....get a new video card or better yet, since you gfx card doesn't support it your computers probably pretty old anyways, just get a new pc.

ah yes, never truly a solution to a problem, but ever the fallback.

I see, so it's the graphics card... there wouldn't be other plug ins that don't require such new-age shading, would there?

well thanks for the help anyway.
