Wii64 Beta 1.2 fork by Fix94

Postby TheThief » Tue Feb 13, 2018 6:55 pm

I'm not seeing anything about this on this forum so I thought I'd post about it. Fix94 released a fork of mupen64GC. A couple or revisions were released. The release from Nov 20th 2017 uses the RICE GFX video plug-in. I know I had been patiently waiting for it for sometime.

Currently playing goldeneye with a working skybox and no discernible slowdown that wasn't already present on the original hardware.

Enjoy, discuss, rejoice.

Is this an updated Wii64 release with hires textures available? Been looking for a way to play Goldeneye64 running decent with textures for some time now. Latest updates here have come a long way but just doesn't seem to support that type of functionality.

That being said, I just recently moved on to PJ64 and 1964 emus on PC. Got OoT and Mario64 running with hires textures on PJ64. With Goldeneye Editor it looks like you can patch custom levels/textures into the rom. I'm pretty noobish when it comes to this kind of stuff, so it's taking a bit to figure out. Looks amazing though and runs at 60fps. GoldeneyeVault.com has nescessary files available.

Here's something experimental to play with I guess: https://github.com/emukidid/Wii64/releases

I just gave this a go with a SM64 Texpack and works fine, I'm playing on WiiU with the CPU unlock enabled :)
Your not using Fix94's WiiU Gamepad patch though?

Thanks :)

Wow, awesome. Thank you for this.
I think I am missing something with the texture pack feature. Used the Texture packer app. Created a Texture pak file and put it in SD:wii64/hires folder and also on usb. Is it supposed to load textures on start automatically? I don't see any difference in textures when playing OoT. Using Djipi's 2015 pack for Rice.

Thanks, I've got a Banjo Kazooie Pack to work too ;) I found a couple Texture packs that are in .DAT format. Are they compatible or is this just for PNG based Texture Packs?

Same for me too. Looks the same as the original rom? I got it to work with Banjo Kazooie and Mario 64 though :)

Right now it has to be a single texture pack and it has to be the right one for your ROM (possibly region too if textures changed). I've run into some memory issues with the texture packs that I'm working out and also adding in some sort of auto loader I guess based on naming.

Oh awesome emu_kidid, thanks for texture pack support. I'll have to track down some goldeneye texture packs to try. Pretty sure I have a sm64 one buried in one of my folders on my PC. I'll be trying it out as soon as I can.
