Playing Nintendo 64 games on MSI Wind U100

Nintendo64LogoRemember the mid 90’s when the console wars was heating up between Playstation 1 and Nintendo64? I remember that time when the Playstation 1 was really the game console of choice here in the Philippines, never really had a chance to play N64 games until now. Want to play N64 games in your computer? Here’s how I did it.

Caution: You must first own the N64 ROMS to play the games. We do not promote piracy.

Hardware Requirements:

msi-wind-u100-mini-laptopWhat I used was a netbook, the MSI Wind U100. Its got a 2gig RAM in it, an Intel Atom 1.6 ghz procesor and a 64mb Intel GMA 950 graphics adapter.

Software Requirements:

OS: Windows XP Service Pack 3

Emulator: Project64 1.6 , this is the program that runs the games

Here’s the hardware requirement for the emulator to run

  • Pentium III 600 Mhz or better
  • 128 Mb. RAM or more
  • Fast video card with 16 Mb. Video RAM or more
  • Windows 95/98/Me/Xp
  • DirectX 6.0 (latest version of DirectX recommended)

ROMS:  These are the games that you run in the emulator. If you have the cartridge of N64 games but don’t have time to convert them to be saved in your computer try to get N64 games at theoldcomputer.com.

Procedure:

Download the emulator then install in your computer. Once installed all you have to do is run it. To play your ROM just click on file – open ROM then search for the ROM you would like to play. Simple as that!

Review:

Most of the ROM’s I have tested runs pretty well on my Wind. I have no problems playing with Super Mario 64, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 64, Starfox 64 and Mario Kart.

Problem games: Resident Evil 2 runs slow and is pixelated, StarCraft64 runs slow.

Screenshots:

The graphics alone were pretty amazing. This was taken at full screen and the game didn’t lag. I never knew that the Nintendo 64 games were pretty amazing until now.

Anyone got a favorite N64 game they are playing right now?
