    i dont believe that u can, n64 games arent designed to be played on a pc, and even if u had an emulator it wouldnt support lan play cuz those games weren't designed for it

    He is right! I could play Goldeneye good with project 64 on my old box, but on my new box it might actually be able to run great. I don't know about playing over a LAN, but the best n64 emulators are project 64 1.5, and Nemu (Some version). Project 64 was my favorite, and you might even be able to play perfect dark. You will need a good box tho. Good meaning 1.5 ghz or more, >256 RAM, and a Geforce 2 or >. Most people that visit this forum have that already! Good Luck!

    Are you sick of poor quality 128k mp3's that sound inferior to regular CD's you buy in the store? Do you long for the exact sound of a CD with absolutly no quality loss, and at practically half the size of a normal CD? CD's get scratched all the time, and FLAC is great for archiving all those good copies of your classic rock, and backing them up to save forever. FLAC unlike mp3, or ogg vorbis is what is called a lossless format. This means that no quality whatsoever is lost from the origianl disk. Lossy formats such as ogg vorbis, wmv, and moreover mp3 are usually flat sounding, and full of hissing and dullness because they discard and literally throw out important information that controls how good the CD will sound. Using FLAC will ensure the crystal-clear clarity that you can expect from a freshly opened CD. Instead of flimsy CD cases that snap and CD's that scratch easily, and are inevitably summoned to a poor scratched up death; FLAC files can be stored in a tough metal box known as your Hard Disk. FLAC putting life back into digital audio. If you own legit copies of CD's and seek for them pre-FLAC'd for all your digital listening needs please shoot me a PM for more information.

    Yes there are several N64 emulators out there to play these games. Project 64, 1964, Nemu and the old UltraHLE will all play N64 games (each emulator has its strenghts and weaknesses, and can play certain games better than others).

    Use google to search for download sites for these emulators, but remember, links to the ROMS (the actual game programs) are not allowed in this forum because any copy of these games is illegal. Even if you own the original cartridge, it's illegal to distribute the ROMs, so no ROM links please.

    I am not trying to be an ass, but isn't it legal if you dump the ROM yourself onto your computer? That's like saying ripping your own CD's in MP3/Ogg is illegal... wtf? :shoot3:

    What Persian said was yes, you can use them for yourself, but if you distribute them, that's illegal.
