Re: Games

Well, I am interested in getting a bunch of emulators for consoles such as (Ataria 2600, NES, SNES, N64 and various others), a lego case and a USB controller. I was wondering, would the raspberry pi be able to fully emulate the Nintendo 64. I have searched the forums but been unable to find a definitive answer.

Thanks

if you can find an emulator that runs on your desired OS, then I dont see why not

I don't expect that N64 emulation will work very well on the Raspberry Pi.

On the Pandora, which has a more beefy SoC from a generation later, it's possible, but you do need to overclock, and it doesn't work for all games.

The others mentioned shouldn't be an issue, to my knowledge, though.

I've never had much reliable luck on getting n64 games to work in general on computers.  I've had good results with getting the Wii to run N64 games.  Not only via the official ports but using the homebrew app to run the roms.
