    1964 is a Nintendo 64 emulator for Microsoft Windows, written in C/C++ and released as free software. It is one of the oldest and most popular N64 emulators, supporting many commercial N64 games.[1]

    History[edit]

    1964 has existed since 1999.[2]

    0.9.9 was the first release with Netplay support.[3]

    The oldest release still available is 0.7.0, released on Friday, November 23, 2001. Older versions of 1964 were known to run on the Windows 95, 98, and ME operating systems.[4]

    1964 is currently an N64 emulator for Windows with typical features like a dynamically recompiling CPU emulator. 1964 supports plug-ins written following Zilmar's N64 Plugin Specifications.

    The peak of 1964's popularity was in early 2004, after the release of 1964 0.9.9.[3][5]

    Recent releases[edit]

    As of June 7, 2009, version 1.1 was released, with both the source code and binary files in a single archive.[3]

    Several contemporary console emulator developers got together and created a Google Code project with the latest source code.[6] The accompanied video plug-in is a continuation of Rice Video, and, in addition to the current developers' progress, any fixes or enhancements made by the Mupen64Plus team (which handles a Linux port of Rice Video) are being adopted if possible.

    Features[edit]

    1964 is one of the few Nintendo 64 emulators with built-in network play support. Like many emulator implementations of "NetPlay", it uses the now inactive Kaillera networking library. It supports multiple inputs, including the use of an Xbox 360 Controller.

    When using the Rice Video or Glide64 video plug-in, 1964 can load high resolution textures in place of lower, default textures in an N64 game.

    System requirements[edit]

    The minimal recommended hardware specifications for the emulator are:[citation needed]

    • CPU: AMD Athlon XP 2200 or Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz
    • Memory: 512MB of RAM
    • OS: Windows 2000, XP, or Vista

    Higher CPU requirements may be imposed when attempting to emulate resource intensive games such as Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark and also there are quite a lot of graphics related glitches when running on older Intel GMA GPUs in Super Mario 64.
