Fair enough. Even offloading the sound to the second CPU would alleviate some issues (although if I remember correctly, N64 had some weird way of passing audio in line with the frames so that may not work.) I brought up the question on the gp32x boards for the Pandora ages ago, and Adventus didn't suggest any useful (easy) way of utilizing the second CPU.

This hasn't got to do with the application itself. There are "custom configurations" for each particular game that has been done up, some games have a forced resolution of 873x568 (or something like that) and as it doesn't stretch you get the weirdness around the outsides. To modify this you'll need to go into configuration section (/media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.metricity.app.mupen64plus/).

It may be worth trying different versions and regions if a game doesn't work, but some just crash whatever you try.
There really isn't that much available for performance tweaks other than the frameskip really. I never found anything to support that different resolutions helped much.
If your a dev or feeling adventurous you can try tweaking some of the files in the installation directory /media/cryptofs/apps/usr/palm/applications/org.metricity.app.mupen64plus/
Been doing this for the most part, and for the amount of errors and other ugly things I figured it wasn't really worth mentioning till you get out of "alpha" and make an attempt at a bug free version :P
Also running it from the terminal will give you some more information.
I'll happily donate if I actually find myself using this a fair amount (as of the moment I get better performance out of mupen64plus on the N900 + a keyboard).
Thanks again for the support, I've added a donate button but can't make any promises particularly with regards to performance.
EDIT: Also waiting for the edit to be approved so I can try second version. Perhaps a static link in another one of your posts (for every time you edit for a new version).
EDIT2: A dummy audio plugin to simply ignore audio would be awesome too.
