Possibly, I've been trying to get what we have out there in some form so perhaps other people can work on it to finish it off.

The latest Not64 revisions make a lot of games work; I'd love to see the graphics work too. and the core "Dynarec2", I'm also getting high hopes for.

Could this emulator be incorporated into retroarch? Have you guys ever thought of asking them?

Edit, just found this:https://gbatemp.net/threads/retroarch-a ... 6/page-162

There actually has been an unofficial announcement recently appearently from Extrems,

"I spoke with Extrems today (author of Not64), to whom emu_kidid apparently gave the code (and presumably the attached rights/responsibilities thereof). I, too, urged him to consider releasing the source, not to placate the masses, but because of the belief that anyone who has knowingly contributed to a GPL project (including the mupen64 authors, on which Wii64 is based), would want their code and its derivatives to be published ("Information wants to be free" etc.), and because it seems a shame that all that work has been done, only to be enjoyed by fewer and fewer people as time passes.

He responded by stating that he was busy working on his GBA project (which he implied was more interesting), and that Wii64 would eventually be released. I asked why the source couldn't be released now in an ad hoc condition (i.e. as a "work in progress"), and he indicated that he didn't want to be responsible for the unofficial binaries that would inevitably be compiled and distributed.

So, we are at a relative impasse. As much as Extrems has helped further N64 on Wii, it seems now he doesn't have the time to work on it (for which no one can blame him), but also is unwilling to release the code until he does work on it.

I share this information because I personally share the view noted above that information is better than no information, even if it is bad news. I truly appreciate all of the work that has gone into making so much great homebrew for GC and Wii, and I have nothing but respect for those who have volunteered their time. I only hope that people will have a chance to see and appreciate all of the work that was done--before interest wanes entirely."

Basically Emu has moved on and Extrems is now in control of the software however Extrems has stated that he is into other things at the moment including a GBA project so it is likely that Not64/Wii64 is on the back-burner while he works on the GBA project.

Huh that sucks if emu does seem to have let it go especially since he made the post
"Wii64 progress video from 2013"
And also hoped for possible release sometime but hey emulation ain't easy to develop

But on a side note do you happen to have any input on what kind of GBA project it is, because if it's anything wii related could it be either better if not on par with MGBA possibly?

It's Game Boy Interface. The last updates to Not64 happened between proof-of-concept (August 2014) and initial release (March 2015).

An offshoot of that is Enhanced mGBA for GameCube and Wii.

For some reason the_randomizer tends to get upset when projects are older than his mental age.

Hey, that's even better! :lol: If you and Emukidid keep it up at this rate, I'm sure we'll see a new Not64 and WiiSX by the year 2020, we'll even see Zsnes 2.0 before then :lol:

No, wait, my mistake, that's giving too much credit, Wii U will be hacked and Mupen64 ported over, silly me.

^ Uhhh.... please stop this. It's not helping anyone. Most, no make that ALL of us are here to follow any news whenever the project continues development or to share any interesting findings of ours regarding Not64, not to read vicious comments.
