[GAME] Super Mario 64 native Linux port
« on: September 29, 2020, 09:41:55 am »
It's happened! Crazy hacker has managed to reverse engineered the N64 game! It was then ported to many platforms including Linux (OpenGL backend).

A bit of tweak in the Makefile and the game can be compiled successfully for PPC64LE

That works (I just changed it to -mcpu=power9). Now to figure out how to make it use a gamepad ...

It must not like my retractable one. I'll scare up a PS3 Sixaxis or something.

Hi guys, I saw the video on you tube of the game running on our Power systems. But how do you download the finished game and try it?

The assets reside in dumped N64 rom. There are many tutorials on how to backup N64 SM64 cartridges on YouTube.
