n64iphone - iPhone 3gs & iPod Touch 3rd Gen N64 emulator

Here’s another look at n64iphone, the Nintendo 64 emulator for iPhone 3GS and iPod Touch 3rd gen. The app is a port of mupen64plus along with Ari64’s ARM Dynarec, and Adventus / Orkin’s OpenGLES GPU. Since the graphics processing unit (GPU) code is written with the OpenGL ES 2.0 specification, it limits the devices able to be used to the iPhone 3gs and iPod Touch 3rd Gen as of the current Apple lineup.

Note that performance can be improved from what is currently shown here. I am using NO frameskip. I also am not using all the assembly for vector math within the GPU currently. Sound and controlling the emulator aren’t within this video as I still need to implement sound & controller plugins.

Current testings as far as I can tell show:

  • Mario Kart 64 runs real well.
  • Mario 64 runs real well.
  • Smash Bros has a graphical glitch where eyes are missing on characters. Perhaps this is due to a bug made in the dynarec porting I did.
  • Legend Of Zelda --
