Modder has increased the performance of Super Mario 64 up to six times

Now here is something truly stunning. Kaze Emanuar has managed to increase the performance of Super Mario 64 up to six times. What’s really impressive here is that the modder has made the game run better, even on the original Nintendo 64 hardware.

The modder has looked at every single variable, understood every fuction, and then optimized everything listed in this 13,000 line map file. That was a huge undertaking, and we have to congratulate him for achieving something like that.

Kaze Emanuar has created some truly amazing mods for Super Mario 64. For instance, there is a Super Mario Bros remake in Super Mario 64 and a VR mod for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. There are also cool Portal 3 64 and Mario Party 64 mods. Let’s also not forget Super Mario Odyssey 64.

Now the good news for PC gamers is that this optimized version of Super Mario 64 will lower the PC requirements needed for running a Nintendo 64 emulator. As such, even more PC gamers will be able to enjoy the game.

That is of course if you are interested in the original Nintendo 64 version. PC gamers can also enjoy a native DX12 unofficial port. And for all RTX owners, there is the incredible Super Mario 64 PC with Ray Tracing Version.
