Thanks a lot for doing/posting this. I'll try to make use of it after I finish getting the RSP back in shape in the new version... (hopefully soon).

I can't get anything to work except for Namco Museum. I'm using cen64-backport and I've tried Ocarina of Time, Super Smash Bros., and Super Mario 64.

OS: Arch Linux. Couldn't get it to compile in Windows (with MSVC)

Am I missing something?

Same thing happens in the regular cen64 branch, but I didn't expect anything but Namco Museum to work anyway.

EDIT: Star Fox 64 works just fine.

I haven't written anything to checksum and set CIC seeds yet, so you have to do it manually:
