PS364 Nintendo 64 Emulator for PS3 Development Update Details


Sponsored Links
156w ago - As a follow-up to their previous update, this weekend EmulateMii has confirmed that the PS364 Nintendo 64 Emulator for PS3 is still under development and has a near-complete hardware renderer.

To quote: Long overdue progress update and... a 1up on bigN!

We must start by saying that yes, it sure has been a while since our last update. Followers can rest assured though that we have been actively developing all of our projects in one way or another. As mentioned before, all three of us have very little time to work on this stuff due to real life commitments, but combined we seem to be getting things done at what we think is a decent pace.

WiiSX has seen some tinkering to try and get compatibility up, but has run into other issues. We have been keeping in sync with pcsx-reloaded whilst trying to maintain the PPC dynarec for it. Eventually we need to add more recompiled functions to the dynarec in WiiSX, particularly GTE. We initially wanted to do a full PPC dynarec re-write, but that doesn't seem feasible time-wise at the moment. Future plans for WiiSX also include porting a hardware renderer now that Pete's OpenGL plugin is open-sourced.

The Wii64 port to PS3 now has a near-complete hardware renderer since our last post. However, the dynarec needs some work to run on a 64bit PPC architecture. The Pure Interpreter core has little (if any) performance increase over the Wii running the same core, so PS364 really needs the dynarec.

Wii64 for the GC/Wii has seen the most in terms of progress. There has been USB2 support added as well as a port of Rice (graphics plugin) amongst other smaller bug-fixes and optimizations since the last release. One notable feature that we're really excited about is...

That's right, high-resolution, custom texture paks are now supported on the Wii using Wii64! Of course, this is still Work-In-Progress, but we're nearing completion.. Expect a release after this feature is complete. We feel like this is where homebrew emulation on the Wii can really shine and provide an enhancement that Nintendo is not able to offer with their official software.

I'm gonna have to agree that this looks fake, and a poorly made one at that. Totally lame.

This is one of two things I am waiting for. Once an N64 emulator is available, my PS3 will cease to play PS3 games or access PSN content. Instead, I will have thousands of thousands of games spanning multiple generations on one system that works with a large TV and has a wireless controller.

Icing on the cake would be porting Dolphin, and being able to use the move controller instead of a wiimote. It would be the only good reason to buy a move controller

that's not proof the project is fake, it's just likely it is, but the videos certainly are.

second 33 and second 34 is different

That kinda what my question was. How does one confirm fake? When I see 100% confirmed I would like to know who did it and how.
