Is it possible to use 1.4's plugins with earlier versions of pj64? I tried it with zelda and pj1.3 and it works very well, you get the LoT fix plus all the other graphical glitches seem fixed. The 1.4 sound plugin didnt seem to have any problems with it either.

Reason im doing this is because 1.3's core seems faster than 1.4 alot of games run 10FPS faster... Try it if your systems struggling a little with 1.4 :) BluDChyLD

P.S Does anyone know if this may cause issues with the emulator?

nope. the emu is backwards compatible, i.e. it works with old plugins, but the plugins arent. so u cant use jabos 1.4 is say pj64 1.2 . for speed u can alter the CF in the rom settings once a rom has been loaded, and then remember to reset the rom. or use 1964.0.7.1 which is years faster (perfect dark is fast on a p3 550). although there is a considerable loss in sound quality, despite sound improving greatly with jabos 1.4 (strangely) in 1964. only a few games arent compatible with 1964 which are with pj64, like wetrix...


otherwise pj64, requires about 1 ghz machine for a good experience. if u hav at least that, then pj64 is the best n64 experience, due to the amazing sound and core.

cheers for the info sk8bloke. There doesn't seem like there's any obvious side effect using 1.4 plugins with 1.3, like I mentioned above zelda is just as good as 1.4. No differance in sound as far as I can tell either...

Maybe some of the 1.4 plugin advances are used by 1.3 and some aren't?
