NAME

       mupen64plus - Console front‐end for the Mupen64Plus N64 emulator

SYNOPSIS

       mupen64plus [parameters(s)] [romfile]

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
       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:

              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/.

              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

       --core-compare-send
              Use  the  core comparison debugging feature, in data sending mode.  If the core was

              exit with an error.

       --core-compare-recv
              Use the core comparison debugging feature, in data receiving mode.  If the core was

       --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.
