Project64 dates back to It's
first public release Project64 v1.0 in May 26th 2001. Project64 is an
emulator designed to emulate a Nintendo64 video game system on a Microsoft Windows
based PC. It creates an environment on
your PC which real N64 software can run and be played in much the same way as it would
be on the original hardware system. It has a fantastic compatibility and is
one of "if not the best" N64 emulator out there. The Game play is a pure
pleasure and is
entertaining for all N64 based Fans, but your Computer had better
meet or excel the Minimum System Specifications.
Minimum system configuration:
This specification will
be sufficient for you to enjoy most compatible games with good
graphics, sound and control,
subject to correct configuration and some limitations of the emulator.
Intel Pentium 3 700Mhz or AMD Athlon 800Mhz CPU*
128MB system RAM
200MB free hard drive space
Additional 20MB-100MB free
hard drive space per game

primary device, have at least 16MB local memory and two texture units.

be displayed correctly and thus some games marked as compatible may suffer
glitches or not be playable on your system. The exact features required vary
from game to game.
and ATI Radeon (early models) are suggested as realistic minimum
video hardware. In conjunction with good quality drivers they have the
required features. Newer cards mainly allow better resolutions, filtering,
anti-aliasing and so on.

any and all graphics cards based on them) can be
considered below minimum
3dfx Voodoo 1,2,3 (1,2 - not

Matrox G200, G400, G450 (poor image quality)
nVidia Riva128 (poor image quality)
S3 Savage 4, Savage 2000
(particularly bad, these cards hang)

allow you to play any game with good speed, graphics, sound
control, subject to the limitations of the emulator.
Note that this specification
is still not sufficient for every option available, but with
proper configuration you shouldn't have significant limitations.
