    On my Evo4g i have a PS1 emulator, super Nintendo, Nintendo, GBA, GBC, and N64. All roms on my phone run very fast and never lag, EXCEPT, N64. :mad:. those are what some of my favorite games are on and every single N64 rom on the phone runs very very slow. they work fine, but are extremely laggy. Is there a way to correct this problem? Even the PS1 games run fast, but the N64 refuses to stop lagging and ruining my games. Its not the emulator either because i have tried probably 4 or 5 different ones. they all work but are still just as laggy. Is the problem that my phone just isn't powerful enough? I mean it's and Evo4g, seems powerful enough for every other emulator, including PS1:(:(:(:(:(:(:(

    perhaps a un and reinstall of the emulator. also check out what all is running in the background. the emulator might be taking up much more space than other apps youre not experiencing lagging issues with. oh, and always wipe the caches (but make sure you wipe back to front, otherwise you might run the risk of infections LoL)

    N64 emulators run really bad for me as well. Honestly I think its just the emulators

    they are in the play store.

    you just need to google the rom games to play them.

    Good to see the guys fixed you up with some great overclocking advice :).

    Just wanted to let you know that I've removed the reference to the site you included in your above post. They've got a bad rep for providing paid apps for free which is a bit frowned-upon around here ;).

    Cheers!

    Sorry about that. I'm new, i did not know that they where frowned upon. I assure you that all my paid apps where in fact, paid for.

    I have been playing Zelda Ocarina of Time Master Quest, Banjo-Kazooie, and Super Mario 64 mostly. But i play like tons of N64 games. It is by far my favorite game system ever made by Nintendo.
