DESCRIPTION

     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 several OpenGL
     video plugins available:

     ·   Rice, included with the distribution

     ·   Glide64Mk2, included with the distribution

     ·   Arachnoid:
               https://github.com/mupen64plus/mupen64plus-video-arachnoid

     ·   Glide64:
               https://github.com/mupen64plus/mupen64plus-video-glide64
         (old)

     ·   Z64:
               https://github.com/mupen64plus/mupen64plus-video-z64
         (must be used with the rsp-z64 plugin)
