Lately I've been successfully figuring out how to compile, or get the latest repos for emulators, installing the latest builds and such. But one emulator gives me so much trouble. Mupen64Plus. The N64 emulator best for Ubuntu.
I first added a PPA, from Sven Ecklemann. This installs Mupen64Plus 2.0, but now I don't know how to use it after.
I understand that there's no GUI, and you're forced to use the terminal for it.
So in terminal, I type "mupen64plus [Rom directory and rom name]" But I get an error, it doesn't want to load the z64/v64 file. The roms are in my flash drive in a folder.
I then tried downloading the source of the latest build, but dear god it's complicated. I have no idea how to build it.
I'm basically stuck, to asking questions. Searching usually gives me results I'm not looking for. Any help running this emulator would be appreciated.
Wine with Project64 is not an option, the games run at unplayable speeds. Though Wine does work with Mupen64 0.5.1, which is really ancient. 2005 vs 2013
Also, I had no luck getting a frontend to work, after installing mupen64plus.
I installed m64py frontend, and when I launch it, nothing happens. My main concern is to get Mupen64plus working, with a frontend of any kind.
This fight seems to be for nothing, Banjo Tooie crashes, and zelda majora's mask crashes occasionally too. Paper Mario has flickering. This is what's shown on the compatibility list.
