mupen64plus [parameters(s)] [romfile]
Mupen64Plus is a plugin‐based N64 emulator for Linux/Unix, OSX, and Windows which is capable of accurately playing many games. Included are four MIPS R4300 CPU emulators, with dynamic recompilers for 32‐bit x86 and 64‐bit amd64 systems, and necessary plugins for audio, graphical rendering (RDP), signal co‐processor (RSP), and input. There are currently two OpenGL video plugins available: the included Rice Video, and Arachnoid (at http://bitbucket.org/wahrhaft/mupen64plus-video-arachnoid/). The most current documentation can be found at the project's homepage: http://code.google.com/p/mupen64plus -h, --help Print help message. --noosd Disable onscreen display. --osd Enable onscreen display. --fullscreen Run emulator in fullscreen display mode. --windowed Run emulator in windowed display mode. --resolution res Display resolution (640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, etc) --cheats cheat‐spec Enable or list cheat codes for the given rom file. --corelib filepath Specifies a filename (optionally with a preceding directory path) to load a specific Mupen64Plus core library. --configdir directory Specifies a directory to look for the mupen64plus.cfg file. Default is ~/.config/mupen64plus/. --datadir directory Specifies a directory to search for shared data files (fonts, cheat codes, .ini files). Default is PREFIX/share/mupen64plus/. --plugindir directory Specifies a directory to search for plugin files. Default is PREFIX/lib/mupen64plus/. --sshotdir directory Specifies a directory to save screenshots captured during gameplay. Default is ~/.local/share/mupen64plus/screenshot/. --gfx plugin‐spec Specifies a plugin‐spec to select a graphics plugin for use during emulation. --audio plugin‐spec Specifies a plugin‐spec to select an audio plugin for use during emulation. --input plugin‐spec Specifies a plugin‐spec to select an input plugin for use during emulation. --rsp plugin‐spec Specifies a plugin‐spec to select an RSP plugin for use during emulation. --emumode mode Specifies which mode the emulator core should run in. mode should be set to one of the following numbers: 0=Pure Interpreter, 1=Cached Interpreter, 2=Dynamic Recompiler (DynaRec). --testshots list Take screenshots at frames given in the comma‐separated list, then quit. --core-compare-send Use the core comparison debugging feature, in data sending mode. If the core was not compiled with support for the Core Comparison feature, then the emulator will exit with an error. --core-compare-recv Use the core comparison debugging feature, in data receiving mode. If the core was not compiled with support for the Core Comparison feature, then the emulator will exit with an error. --set param‐spec Set the value of a Mupen64Plus configuration parameter. This option may be used multiple times. The format of param‐spec is Section‐Name[Param‐Name]=Value --saveoptions Save the given command‐line options into the mupen64plus configuration file to use as defaults in the future. Since the console front‐end needs to load the core library before reading the configuration file, the --corelib option cannot be saved. --verbose Print lots of information. Useful for debugging but unnecessary for normal use.
(plugin-name) Filename (without path) of plugin to use. Application will search through several directories to look for a matching plugin name. (plugin-path) Full directory path and filename of plugin. 'dummy' Use the dummy plugin.
'list' Show all of the available cheat codes. 'all' Enable all of the available cheat codes. (codelist) A comma separated list of cheat code numbers to enable.
The following shortcut keys can be used during emulation. These are the default key values; nearly all of them may be set to different keys by editing the mupen64plus configuration file. Escape Quit the emulator. 0-9 Select virtual 'slot' for save/load state. F5 Save emulator state to current slot. F7 Load emulator state from current slot. F9 Reset emulator. F10 Slow down emulator speed by 5 percent. F11 Speed up emulator speed by 5 percent. F12 Take screenshot. Alt‐Enter Toggle fullscreen mode. This is not supported on Windows. p or P Pause/continue emulation. m or M Mute/unmute sound. f or F Fast Forward (playback at 250% normal speed as long as key is pressed) g or G Press GameShark button (if cheats are enabled). / or ? Advance one frame if paused. [ Decrease volume. ] Increase volume.
The default location for the Mupen64plus configuration file is ~/.config/mupen64plus/. The default location of the saved screenshots is ~/.local/share/mupen64plus/screenshot/. The default location of the save states is ~/.local/share/mupen64plus/save/.
