    Maybe you can think twice about picking up that new Nintendo 3DS: over a year since development began, the first official release of N64oid, which lets you play classic Nintendo 64 titles on your Android device, is now available in the Market. This is the latest offering from yongzh, the developer behind NESoid, SNESoid, and several other highly-rated emulators for Android.
    While emulators for pre-mid-1990s’ consoles are commonplace on a variety of mobile devices, the generation that featured N64 and the first Sony Playstation took a huge leap in terms of performance, so developing working emulators for titles from those machines takes considerably more time and commitment from talented developers. N64oid was available previously in beta status, but many games were not yet fully working and the sound was often off. We fully expect N64 to improve in time, but it looks like most games work now with a very solid framerate.
    If you want to play oldies like Super Mario 64, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, or Goldeneye, you will need to have corresponding ROMs (you must own a copy of the game to play legally).


    [​IMG]

    N64oid is the Nintendo 64 emulator optimized for Android.​
    * Run most games smoothly at a reasonable speed (if not full speed) with sound. This requires you have a high-end device (Nexus-S, Nexus-One, Droid, Samsung Galaxy, etc).
    * Save/load game states at ANY points, as well as the in-game save support (SRAM, EEPROM, etc).
    * A configurable, translucent on-screen keypad that is very easy to use.
    * Key mappings to map game keys to hardware buttons.
    * Option to use the G-sensor as the analog stick.
    * A variety of settings that you can tune on your needs.


    Note:
    * N64oid is far from being perfect now. But do expect it would be improved continuously and constantly.

    The moment i saw it was out, it didn't cross my mind twice, I flew over to my phone like i had rockets in my pants and quickly downloaded it, started up Super Mario 64, and i kid you not i almost started crying tears of joy, GOD LIKE FPS, Sound (all though a bit high pitched) worked perfectly, controls were like the dev himself read my mind and said "Yeah...yeah he'll like that"

    Very VERY nice work, I would love to donate if anyone knows of a donate page

    This emulator right here is living proof that someone is watching over us each and every day


    TLDR; Darn good emulator that runs perfectly

    lolwut????

    More like proof that there is a developer who got this emulator out to the android community, and he probably worked on it each and every day about.




    A side note, I can't wait to test this but not going to do it on my droid, but my Archos 101 tablet will be arriving tomorrow, bigger screen woo! ;D

    Yeah i know, i over did it for comedic reasons :p

    Should look really nice on the Archos, can't wait to hear how looks on it


    Never thought i would see the day though, always read that it would never happen because it would be too hard to port over, or the controls wouldn't work out and make all games unplayable, or most droid phones couldn't handle it

    Nice work proving them wrong dancedroid

    Just saw today this was out, and immediately downloaded it. Original Droid1. :motdroidhoriz: I tried it first at stock speeds, but I barely got through the mario kart menu before it crashed and rebooted, so I loaded up chevy's 1ghz kernel and oc'd. Mario Kart and Mario 64 run smooth as butter. I'm amazed.

    I will list what's working for me, and maybe others can add their experiences?

    Working with little to no lag:
    Mario 64, Mario Kart, Wave Race, F-Zero X, Tony Hawk 3, Diddy Kong Racing, Star Fox, Smash Bros (a few graphical issues, no eyes. lol.), Turok (graphical issues here too.)

    Working, but laggy to the point of being unplayable:
    Goldeneye, Zelda OoT (this one is close, but just too slow), Zelda MM,

    Crashes, not working:
    Gauntlet Legends, Perfect Dark, Blast Corps, Rogue Squadron, 1080 Snowboarding, Jet Force Gemini, Pokemon Snap, Star Wars- Shadows of the Empire,


    I've had a few random crashes and reboots, but overall, I'm impressed. Look forward to the updates.

    Yongzh has told me in an email that bad roms can be a majority of the issue. Apparently, dont trust rom gripper or quite a few download sites to have good quality compatible roms.

    This makes sense because some people can run smash brothers, but I cant even get it to load...

    Mario 64 + OOT = extra fast and slowing (I don't know how else to describe it)

    It moves twice the speed but also has it's slow downs. But still playable games.

    Mario party 3 = Very unplayable and annoying all it does is flash the whole time, plus on top of that the characters on the board are invisible.

    Super Smash Brothers = Playable, slowish a bit.

    Mario Kart = Works fine also a tad sluggish too sometimes.

    Golden Eye = It works, but oh man the controls are amazingly difficult for on screen controls lol you need to use the C buttons to look around and the analog stick to move and the A/B buttons to shoot and switch guns lol



    I am judging from my Archos 101 (4 games on the original droid OC'd though but same performance with ROMS)
    But they are very similar.

    I think something might of happened to Yongzh due to the disaster in Japan, N64oid was pulled from the market, and there are no more updates and no one can seem to get a hold of him, anyone know if he's from Japan?

    That would be terrible! At least the nukeplant techs have managed to get the reactors on back up power.

    I cant help but think about the 2004 tsunami and how it just...swept a lot of people out to sea. Its a very saddening thing to have happen

    Well, today it got updated to run games smoother and to run games that didn't run before like Conker's bad fur day, and Paper Mario, at first i was so happy, until i saw that you need to PAY for the update...i didn't mind, because it's such a great emulator, paying for the thing was like dodging demons in hell blindfolded while being shot at, I got far but ended up just being shot down, SlideMe wouldn't take any of my 3 credit cards, had errors, they told me to talk to my bank, told me to talk to the emulator dev, then they charged me TWICE but still didn't let me update, would of been so much easier if his emulators were just on the market once more


    TLDR; Have to pay for the update, and paying for it is a pain in the butt, SlideME is crap when it comes to money transfers, double charges you but doesn't like you update it...



    It's a good thing it's only 4 bucks, i would of crapped my pants if it charged me twice and the emulator was something crazy like 10/12 bucks
