This Tutorial seeks to clearly explain the information you need for the development of NINTENDO64 applications. It is organized into the four tutorials described below. In each tutorial, we utilize sample programs to give concrete form to the explanations.


This tutorial covers the basic information you need to understand for all N64 programs.


This tutorial focuses on how to use the RSP and RDP architecture, the heart of graphics processing on the N64.


This tutorial explains N64 audio and how to use the special audio library, mainly through examples using NINTENDO64 Sound Tools.


This tutorial explains the SI (Serial Interface) and the PI (Parallel Interface), two of the main components of the N64.

Our hope is that this Tutorial will give you an in depth understanding of N64 application development and help you in the creation of more advanced N64 programs.
