Cycle-Accurate Nintendo 64 Simulator


CEN64 is a new Nintendo 64 emulator which aims for perfect emulation by simulating the hardware inside the Nintendo 64 itself, down to the register-transfer level (RTL). It is still heavy under development and currently does not have any sound emulation.

Being a cycle-accurate emulator, CEN64 has considerably high hardware requirements to achieve passable performance when emulating most Nintendo 64 titles. However, similar to the higan emulator, the cycle accuracy guarantess very high compatibility and despite its early development stage, CEN64 already allows one to run several commercial titles without or with only minor glitches.

As a distinctive feature among Nintendo 64 emulators, CEN64 offers emulation support for the 64DD external disk drive that was never released outside Japan and even there is considered rare. Thus, CEN64 offers the unique possibility for anyone to play any of the rare titles that were exclusively released on the 64DD.
