[edit] Installation

If you are updating to this version from any previous command-line version, remove existing state
cp -R .mupen64plus/save .
rm -R .mupen64plus
mv save .mupen64plus/

Also, if you updated to latest version, and get a black screen stuck on gles2n64 0.0.x you must remove gles2n64.cfg doing the following.:

rm /home/user/.mupen64plus/gles2n64.cfg

Install the mupen64plus-arm package from extras-devel

[edit] Custom configuration

A customised configuration is useful for keybindings, such as quitting the emulator by pressing the q key, and some useful settings to speed up emulation.

  1. Create the ~/.mupen64plus directory, if it does not exist:
    mkdir .mupen64plus
  2. Download the custom configuration.
  3. Extract the custom configuration:
    cd .mupen64plus
    tar -xzf /home/user/MyDocs/customconfig.tar.gz

The keybindings in the custom configuration are as follows:

  • z = R
  • x = A
  • c = B
  • v = L
  • Space = Z
  • Enter = Start
  • Arrow Keys = Dpad
  • IJKL = Joystick
  • TFGH = C buttons
  • q = Quit the emulator
  • p = Pause the emulator

Also note that:

  • Frameskip is set to 2.
  • Framebuffer is disabled and resolution is 800x480
  • Memory Pak is enabled
  • Audio is disabled as it sounds terrible.
