Name Description
m64p m64p is an open-source, plugin-based Nintendo 64 emulator maintained by loganmc10. The project bundles Mupen64Plus with GLideN64, as well as its own frontend, input plugin, and netplay support.

This is likely the most compatible N64 emulator you're going to come across. It can play games like Resident Evil 2, Rogue Squadron, Pokemon Snap, and World Driver Championship "out-of-the-box" (without the need to fiddle with settings, plugins, or anything of the sort).

Name Description
Fake64 Fake64 is a new N64 Emulator for Linux. It is currently in really early stages. It successfully executes 5.5 million opcodes of n64stars. However, as yet no support for audio or video is implemented and the interface is still in the early stages of development.
Mupen64 Mupen64 is a n64 emulator desgined to be multi-OS. It has been developped on/for Linux originally but the emulator has already been ported succesfully on Windows and MacOSX for example. Actually the program can be easily ported on all OS supported by the SDL library.

In its current state, the emulator is highly compatible and use a plugin system. With the correct plugins (``correct'' can be computer dependent), it can achieve nearly perfect graphics and sound in many games.

The biggest problem of this emulator until now was its speed but now it's progressively changing with a totally new core and there's still a huge room for improvements.
Mupen64Plus Mupen64Plus is based off of mupen64, originally created by Hacktarux. This package contains only the Mupen64Plus core library. For a fully functional emulator, the user must also install graphics, sound, input, and RSP plugins, as well as a user interface program (called a front-end).
TrueReality Latest version of TrueReality, currently runs Firedemo and Rotate demo almost perfectly and a few other demos with few problems. Commercial roms starting to be tested now, but far from running perfectly... This is really cool, so it's worth the download, no sound yet though. Check the homepage for more info on devkits and such.
