Project64 Windows

Play N64 / 64DD games on this Project64 build that I recommend everyone to use.
Adds the following plugins with it: GLideN64 and angrylion-rdp-plus.
Includes saving and disk swapping support.

The nightly installer from Rosalie241 will download the latest builds of Project64, GLideN64 and angrylion-rdp-plus automatically. Feel free to use it to get the latest development builds.

mupen64plus Windows / Linux / Mac OS

mupen64plus is the latest newcomer that can emulate 64DD, while not fully compatible, you can now use m64p (includes a graphical interface, available on every OS) to play 64DD games. m64p includes GLideN64 and angrylion-rdp-plus.

CEN64 Windows / Linux / Mac OS

CEN64 is the new N64 emulator by MarathonMan. Still pretty early at this time, it is aimed to be accurate.
Mike Ryan added 64DD emulation later on based on MAME's 64DD emulation. Only a few games are working at this time of writing.
Requires 64DD disk dumps to be converted with ddconvert.

MAME Windows / Linux / Mac OS

MAME, the known multi system emulator, has been the very first emulator to support 64DD, coded by Happy_.
All the other emulators uses its 64DD emulation code as a base.
Requires 64DD disk dumps to be converted with ddconvert. A tutorial is available for MAME.

64DD MFS Manager

A File Manager for 64DD MFS saves by LuigiBlood.
Able to import & export user created files, such as Mario Artist and F-Zero X creations.


A bunch of 64DD tools by jrra.
Can show disk dump information, extract files from the MFS, view Mario Artist saved content.


For converting dumps to a compatible format with MAME. (by Happy_)

For converting MAME format dumps back to the SDK-based format.


These are the 64DD IPLs you need to play 64DD games and expansions.

64DD Disk Dumper 64drive ONLY

64drive is required. Follow the on screen instructions.
Since v0.56, it supports both gray (retail drive only) and blue disks (development drive only).

(0.81) Fixes support for Development Drives without IPL
(0.80) Menu fixes, can now use default formatting information from disk if the disk game system data cannot be used. Disks without ID will be dumped as "NUD-DUMP-JPN.ndd".
(0.71) New option to do full dumps much faster (at the expense of accuracy)
(0.70) New Menu, Pause feature, Skip to RAM/End.
(0.57) Better Development Drive detection, untested.
(0.56) Now detects retail and development drives reliably.
(0.55) Disk ID related bugs are fixed. Filenames should be appearing just right.
Thanks Zoinkity for your findings!

64DD IPL Dumper 64drive ONLY

64drive is required. Follow the on screen instructions.
Blindly dumps the IPL ROM, Register Set and H8 ROM of the 64DD to the SD card.
(0.03) Dumps the IPL, Register Set and H8 ROM.
(0.01b) Updated to support other regions of IPL ROMs such as USA.

64DD Disk Viewer

Lets you view blocks of your disks. Does not work properly on Everdrive 64 v3 due to odd hardware behavior.

leoulx Internal Tool

Hidden within dn, the tool that fixes blue disks defects from the official N64 SDK, leoulx has been found by jrra.
It is an official tool that tests everything on the 64DD. It is very useful for emulation tests, but also for real hardware tests.

Gray version is made for the retail 64DD drive and gray disks.
Blue version is for the development 64DD drive and blue disks.

Does not work properly on Everdrive 64 v3 due to odd hardware behavior.


IPL4ROM is the ROM file usually uploaded to the Partner-N64 (usually with DISK cartridge plugged in) to boot blue development disks.
It's possible to run it on a flashcart for the same purpose. Taken from the N64 SDK files.

The JPN & USA Hacks are made by Zoinkity, to include the fonts and sounds so it doesn't require the DISK cartridge to see the errors, and also the English interface for the USA Hack.

I would suggest to dump your blue disk first, in case booting it may destroy some saved data.
