Oh, N64 emulation is spotty on the Wii? I'm actually interested in this one for my brother, I was gonna set up his Wii with a bunch of emulators and I know that he'd MUCH prefer a real N64 controller over a GCN or Classic Controller.

Any game sold in the store (a wad file), works fine. But third party emulation, via mupen or wii64, is spotty at best.

Rare games specifically are bad.

Ah, that's a shame. I didn't realize this. I guess I just figured since N64 games from the Wii Shop play nice that emulation would be good. That makes me not even wanna set up N64 emulation for him.

How is N64 emulation on the Oxbox?

Worse. There's only a Pentium III-733mhz in there, very similar to a mobile Celeron of the day. There's just not enough power to do what needs to be done, though as always, it's possible, some games work better than others, etc.

The Wii at least has the Virtual Console versions, and with some tweaking and fooling around, a generally better experience than the Xbox.

So this thread is getting OT quick, but, if I were to get N64 wads, how would I go about using them? Is there a way to install them as a channel or something?

Softmod it and install them through a wad manager in the Homebrew Channel, not hard atall.

I was very disappointed in Wii64, but any legit wad plays perfectly. Mario Kart 64 plays better than it does on the 64 - sans controller.

edit: I realized that I have more Wii softmod questions then I thought, so I started a separate thread for them here: viewtopic.php?p=931314#p931314

So, back on topic now...

For the N64, the Ralph Net adapter looks to be the best bet. Has anyone used that EMS one? Looks cheap.

Is Ralphnet the only real option for TG16/PCE controllers as well?

What options do I have for Genesis controllers? I'm not seeing any.

The only Genesis/MD adapter I could find was Bruno Freitas's:

But it is a premium item. Apparently it supports N64 now aswell.
