Mupen64Plus is an open-source, plugin-based Nintendo 64 emulator that is both a fork and a direct upgrade to the now-abandoned Mupen64 by Hacktarux. This cross-platform emulator is capable of accurate emulation with dynamic recompilers for 32-bit x86 and 64-bit amd64 systems. It also provides the necessary plugins for better overall performance and experience.

  • Hi-resolution texture with its two OpenGL video plugins
  • LIRC Infrared remote control
  • Rumble Pak
  • GameShark Codes, along with its built-in Cheat system

By October 2007, Richard Godeken released Mupen64-64bit, or what is now known as Mupen64Plus. The fork aimed to provide a 64-bit recompiler while trying to fix the bugs present in the original emulator. Over the course of time and with the help of other developers, Mupen64+ expanded and grew to become one of the leading Nintendo 64 emulators we know today.
