This is quite a nice treat to mention here. After you go through the tutorial, you will want to check out the updated Jabo's graphics plugin. It's going to fix the skies in GoldenEye and if you choose to play Perfect Dark via emulator, it also fixes the lens effect which has been missing on things like the slayer. Again if you're new to emulation it's best to read this after you get through the tutorial. You will need to have PJ64 installed, then run the patch which will update the plugins. Here is the link here.
Update - I decided to add a Project 64 page. Why? Well there is a big user base and it's extremely popular. It's a great N64 emulator. It just needs online support! Also, check February update to find the IP address for the server you need to be using to find GoldenEye games online!
Update - Here is where you should go to play GoldenEye N64 online: 126.96.36.199 <-- enter that ip address into Kaillera. It's East Coast North America server. Lots of Nintendo 64 players and games there. So when you get to the end of the tutorial and are ready to play GoldenEye online, just copy and paste this ip address. Good luck!
Update - Fantastic news. Kaillera is back online! That means you can now update your master server list from with Mupen. Find out what servers you can play GoldenEye online! Thanks to ZeldaRocks for informing me that Kaillera is back online.
New PD solo level now a multiplayer level in GoldenEye. Kode-Z has released Attack Ship playable as a GoldenEye multiplayer level if you can believe it. I've updated the Mupen ini HERE so your rom list will be correct. Attack Ship details HERE.
I always hear the same complaint from new players to GoldenEye online. They can't find any GoldenEye games on the servers. I say the same thing to everyone. Start a game room and wait. Think about it. There are lots of you saying the same thing. So probably there are a bunch of GoldenEye players sitting on that server asking the same question. Where are the GoldenEye games? It's like a big dance. Nobody on the dance floor but everyone is standing around looking at each other. Just start a GoldenEye room and wait. It's like fishing! Be patient. Even games on Xbox Live sometimes take time before you find another player on the planet who is online at the same time as you. Sure, maybe it will take 10 minutes but who cares? Just leave your room open and check back after a while. Make sense?
Also, I've revising this tutorial again and simplifying it even more. Less words, less steps and nicer layout. Coming soon!
Update - A masterpiece has been released for GoldenEye! Monkeyface has released a new map pack that has.....11 levels! They are Counter Strike levels converted into GoldenEye levels! Watch the incredible video here. Download the IPS Patch for the CS Map Pack here. Get the updated Mupen ini file here.
