Mupen64Plus v2 is a Nintendo 64 emulator ported on Pandora by PtitSeb. Other versions exist (Android, Windows, Mac, Linux...).

Current version is from Dec 19th 2013.

Adding to the Compatibility List

Choose a playability color that reflects a game's best playability state. Also include the clockspeed at which you ran it, for whichever Pandora version you tested. Please also indicate in the name of the Game whether the version is US/EU/JP, since compatibility may differ depending on regions. You may also add specific conditions you specified in the settings if they differ from the defaults. As for the SGX driver, please write "default" if you did not change your driver vs what was in the firmware.

Don't post a redundant entry unless you are using a different Pandora model and the playability differs from an existing entry. If a game's playability gets worse (new bugs, new crashes) in a new Mupen2.0 version, update the entry and add that to notes.

Playability Description
Fullspeed Games with a green background run at fullspeed and are fully playable from start to finish. If frameskip is required, add to notes.
Playable Games with a yellow background run slower than fullspeed, but are otherwise fully playable. Add problems/slowdowns to notes.
Incomplete Games with an orange background have playability issues and cannot be played from start to finish. This may include missing functionality (wifi) or game crashes. Add problems to notes.
Unplayable Games with a red background are unplayable. They either don't run at all, or don't get past the intro. Add any other oddities to notes.
N/A Games with a white background have not been fully tested. If you see one on this list, try it out and report back!

If you are inclined, post your forum username at the end of your notes so you can be contacted by PtitSeb about further debugging your problems.

Donkey Kong 64 (unknown) GLES2N64 1GHz 4.03.02 1.55 1000 MHz Minor geometry glitches, a stuttering camera and significant motion clipping failures make it hard to do anything in this game. Runs close to 100% speed with the GLES2N64 plugin - Levi (talk) Orange

The Legend of Zelda - Majoras Mask (US) Rice GLES2 1GHz Default 1.55 1000 MHz Video runs slower and the sound stutters sometimes. Also some graphics are missing (hand of the clock on the bottom of the screen, Active heart in health bar). Yellow

Paper Mario (US) Arachnoid ReBirth Default 1.60 800 MHz VIDEO Rice Gles2: Looks nicest, but causes slowdowns, could be better on a 1GHz model or if overclocked more. Arachnoid: best overall IMO fullest speed most times, Looks good, stutters, like the rest, but slow item menu. AUDIO use Notaz's. RSP use default Fworg64 Yellow
