Advantages: Oustanding at what it runs
Disadvantages: Only runs a few games well, really need a Voodoo card
This is from a Voodoo 3 owner.
I have tried all the emulators. Nemu does not work well on Voodoo cards, Corn is not too good and TRWin, although getting better is not of a very high quality in the graphics department.
UltraHLE on the other hand is outstanding...
As long as you don't mind only being able to play a handful of games properly.
The good thing is that the games it can run it runs flawlessly, better than a real N64.
Now, I'm not condoning this, but I tried UltraHLE and was pleasantly surprised.
I tried many games and it really only runs, SuperMario 64, Mario Kart, Goldeneye and Zelda64. It might run a few more quite well (I tried Starfox and it worked) but these are really the best and boy so they run well.
On my K62 500 and Voodoo 3000 I was running all these in 1024 perfectly. They looked absolutely outstanding.
I have to admit that Zelda 64 is probably THE best game I've ever played, on any system. It runs so well and looks great.
There are glide wrappers if you don't own a Voodoo card, but you still need a reasonable hefty system to run them, and you have to get hold of the roms, which are difficult to find.
I don't really think we will see an N64 emulator that runs everything, (like the SNES emulator), and if we do it won't be for a long time, but if you wanna try N64 emulation, this is the one to get if you have a Voodoo card. If not, try the others as well as they will probably run better.
Or, you could just wait for the new UltraHLE, coming out soon...
