The guys over at OSBB have released a Nintendo 64 emulator for the BlackBerry PlayBook. With the Mupen64Plus emulator, you can nearly play all N64 games! Here’s the details:


Download the .bar file and sideload it using the newest DDPB or similar tool.

Loading Games
*Disclaimer: We will not help obtaining games or any other files. Search elsewhere.

  1. To create the necessary folder structure, run Mupen64Plus-PB before trying to add roms.
  2. You should be shown an empty dialog box.
  3. Press “Cancel” and the application will exit.
  4. Next, connect your PlayBook to your computer or enable wireless sharing.
  5. Open “My Computer” and select the BlackBerry network drive.
  6. Navigate to misc/n64/roms/ and copy your legally obtained games here.
  7. The dialog for picking games will also allow you to change the video plugin or disable the sound. At a minimum, a rom and at most one video plugin need to be used.

Hi-Res Textures:

To load Hi-Res textures:

  1. Run the target game first to create the needed folders.
  2. Find the texture packs online and copy into /misc/n64/hires_texture/[game]
  3. Start up the game and wait for it to load as it will take longer.

Save/Load States:

Save/load state buttons are located in the top left/right corners. To hide these, tap the top middle of the screen.
