You can use plug-ins in Project64 by choosing them in the Settings menu in the emulator. The Project64 emulator provides an alternative option for playing Nintendo 64 games on a computer. This emulator comes with default plug-ins; however, you can choose different plug-ins within the emulator to improve graphics, audio and more. Project64 recommends using the default plug-ins for the best results, as installing third-party plug-ins may cause further problems.
- Start Project64

- Configure a plug-in
You can configure a plug-in before, during or after emulation. Go to Settings, and select Plug-ins. Press OK to activate, and go to Options, then Plug-in Type and then Plug-in Configuration. Choose a new plug-in, or configure the current plug-in for better visual or audio enhancement. Afterward, exit the Settings menu.
