Play N64 Games On Your School Computer

Picture of Play N64 Games On Your School Computer

Ever been bored at school? Problably. Been stuck in front of a computer in school, but havent been able to play any games because of the firewall? It has happened to all of us. Now, you can play all of your favorite N64(or other video game systems) games on your computer.

Need:
Flash Drive
School computers that run windows xp, vista, or 7 (Im not sure if this is compatable with macs, although it should be).

Step 1: Downloading the Emulator

To play N64 games on a computer, you must first download an emulator to run the games on your computer. To download the emulator, go to http://www.coolrom.com/. Browse emulators until you find emulators for the n64. From here you can download one of four emulators. It dosen't matter which one, they all run most games, however i do recommend project 64. Be sure to save the emulator files to your flash drive, not only the shortcut.

Side note: At this point, you can download emulators to other game systems if you wish. The process is practically the same.

Edit: I forgot to add that you will need to install the emulator onto your flash drive also. This takes about a minute. After downloading the emulator onto your flash drive, you will see a shortcut for project 64. Click on it and make sure to install the file onto your flash drive. Several files should appear after the installation. To run the emulator, click on the red shortcut.

Step 2: Downloading Games

Great. now you have your emulator,but dont have any games to play on it. Time to get some games! Go to http://www.coolrom.com/ once again and repeat the last step again, except browse Rom files instead. Save these games to your flash drive also.

Can you do this with an SD Card?
Yes. An SD card is still a flash card just for a different port type.

As long as it has the space, this will work fine. :)
