Using a N64 controller

RetroBat will automatically detect and configure the following N64 controllers:

  • Original N64 pad with Raphnet adapter

  • Original N64 pad with Mayflash adapter

  • Nintendo Switch Online N64 Gamepad (only on standalone emulators, not with RetroArch)

Additionaly, RMG Mupen64 and Simple64 can leverage the Raphnet direct access feature with a dedicated plugin, this can be enabled in RetroBat features:

When using Mayflash adapter, controllers must be plugged in reverse order, meaning player 1 will be assigned to the last port of the adapter.

Specific System Information

Custom textures

mupen64plus next core allows the use of custom textures.

The texture pack must be placed in the bios\Mupen64Plus\cache\ folder if the pack comes as a .hts or .htc file.

If it comes as a uncompressed pack (folder with .png files), it must be placed in the bios\Mupen64Plus\hires_texture\ folder.

For htc or hts files, the file name must be GAMEID"__HIRESTEXTURES.hts or .htc (for example : MARIOKART64_HIRESTEXTURES.htc).

For uncompressed folder, the folder name must be similar to the gameID (for example MARIOKART64).

Once the texture pack in the right folder, enable CUSTOM TEXTURES in Retrobat.

Select RICE if the texture pack is compressed (htc or hts).

Select CACHE if the texture pack is uncompressed (folder).

At first launch of a game with an uncompressed texture pack, Mupen64Plus-next will generate a .hts file in CACHE folder, upon next launch of the game, it is possible to use RICE instead of CACHE.
