    Is it possible to run N64 games at 1080p native (not upscaled from 720p), or is this too much for pi?

    If not, I may have to seriously consider buying a 720p display.

    Edit: got this working 🙂

    What’s your memory split? I recommend 256 mb to GPU.

    Yep these are my Settings:

    arm_freq=1000
    core_freq=450
    sdram_freq=450
    over_voltage=2
    gpu_mem=256

    I’d like to know how you did this aswell, I have followed multiple settings, but my Pi2 is still running very slow

    I think N64 games are still very hit or miss. I can get most games to run full speed but there are random graphical and sound glitches on a lot of games. I think N64 is just hard to emulate; a better option would be to download the games using a Nintendo Wii, but then you have to pay for them.

    You can try playing around with different plugins under core options, but I think the defaults are the best for the pi. Other plugins might be more accurate but not run as well on the pi.
