m64p (2020/10/22) is released. m64p uses mupen64plus-gui, a brand new mupen64plus frontend written in Qt5. It supports all thing things you’d expect from a frontend (savestate management, pausing, screenshots, etc..). m64p comes bundled with GLideN64 for the graphics plugin. It should give you the best out-of-the-box experience available for N64 gaming.
This release contains a fix for a very pesky bug on the Windows version that would sometimes make the emulator crash when starting a game. This bug was related to the input plugin, fixing it involved re-writing how the input settings are stored. Thus, all input settings will be wiped on start, you’ll need to re-create any input profiles you had.
