Version 0.9.6 crashes almost immediately upon launching. Repeated efforts yielded exactly the same. Reverting to older version fixed the problems.

Your best N64 emulation option for OS X, but support is seriously lacking, sadly. Can't help but feel with an update of the app it could take much better advantage of OS X's progression as an OS and possibly support better audio/video.

I paid for the app YEARS ago and still feel it was worth it, but hope either Gerrit continues work on the app or lets someone else take over the project.

I completely agree, this is in sore need of an update, the last stable release was from 2007, and the latest beta (from early 2010) crashes a lot and also gets rid of widescreen and resolution customization.

Here's to hoping that Gerrit will continue development very soon, or maybe even make it open source like Dolphin.

Either way, it's pretty much the best us Mac users can get for a N64 Emulator, so it would be awful to see it die :/

You still need the ROM files (games) for Sixtyforce to open and play. Once you have those you just choose "Open" from the File menu.

On an Intel Macbook, it works perfectly. It is definitely worth supporting and paying the $16 fee...naturally, it runs faster when it's not full-screen, but it still works fine when it is.

The only problems I encountered stemmed from using faulty ROMs. Controllers can be used, keyboard controls can be adjusted and most every aspect can be adjusted/tweaked. I've found it to work so far with all the major titles. Well worth it.

I was amazed about sixtyforces performance on 0.9.0 version. Many games run very well on my mac mini G4 1.42ghz and 1 g of ram.
There is just one question:
Is it possible to save games like Majoras mask, in free version of sixtyforce? I thought that it is (like in older versions), and I played to second dungeon (and saved always when possible), then i did quit the game, and next time everything was gone! There was nothing in /documents/sixtyforce saved games folder.

p.s Sorry for my bad english :p

You need to have a registered version of sixty force to save game freezes

Important ammendment to my previous review! I have been able to make some games work *perfectly* that I previously may have mentioned as "technically working, but not really playable." I'm talking about major games, some of which made the N64 popular and definitely make this emulator an incredible must-have fun item.

Off the top of my head, I have been able to get GoldenEye, Diddy Kong Racing, Perfect Dark (#1) working perfectly, with NO graphics or interface problems. Again, these are only three that I can remember. There were others, and you should try your own collection! Sound may still be problematic and a bit skippy on some titles, but I found that disabling in-game music works most times. Otherwise, try toggling the "enable audio plugin" setting (or, worst case, just toggle the entire "enable sound" setting). But a fair number of these games run perfectly otherwise.

In every case, try running the ROM again and again with various settings on/off (i.e. audio plugin, expansion pack, speed limiter, and the big one that helped me make major games work: multisample level, under graphic settings). Also, no matter how sure you are, make sure your game ROM works. I found one or two ROMs were faulty, nothing to do with Sixtyforce whatsoever.

I'm having a lot more fun, and this thing is worth the money, easily. Sure, it doesn't work with everything. And it needs a bit more smoothing with regards to the audio plugin, but I've never seen an emulator so robust, stable, and functional. You just have to be willing to experiment with the settings (sometimes even the settings that you don't understand and are really apprehensive about touching!).

i installed the new version 0.9.0 over 0.9.0b1. unfortunately, i can no longer run my saved games. i can still see the sixtyforce Saved Games > Cartridge Database but I don't kno why sixtyforce does not recognize it. i have "enable memory expansion pack" checked, but still nothing.
