spent a long time doing this figured id post my findings and settings to help any1 else that needs this info:

Benifits of 2.1.0.1? 
its a damn sight faster than any other n64 emulator with hi res stuff, and works with glide64 the best
if you don't care about hi res stuff try 1964, i found it to be really fast and easy to use

Setting up:
First get a copy of project 64 2.1
www.pj64-emu.com/
then download Glide64 FINAL 8 2012 version
www.emutalk.net/threads/54874-…
Unzip glide 64 into plugin/GFX
Go into the wrapper folder and cut and 
paste glide3x.dll into the main project 64 folder the one with the project 64.exe file in

your plugins can be changed via the settings option in pj64, directories is also in there u will need to modify both
directories usually starts pointing to the save folder.. i dont know why lol

also audio should nearly always be set to sync to game

some games require having the 8mb option checked in the settings rom settings tab, these are mostly games with an expansion pack
also some games require you to config your controller settings so it has a memory pack (to save) i use jabo direct 7.1.6 i suggest you do the same


Where to place textures?
Project64 2.1/plugin/GFX/hires_texture/your rom name
u must create the hires_texture folder in GFX name it exactly that

The _is very important as is not having an s on the end of texture

or

Project64 2.1/plugin/GFX/cache
if you have no cache folder create it it should be called cache and go in the GFX folder

these folders depend on the file you downloaded if it's a full pack the first one, if its two .DAT files the second

Texture packs
IMPORTANT!! the following two files may be needed to patch your project 64.exe
www.techpowerup.com/forums/att…
www.ntcore.com/files/4gb_patch…
this is because some of the files are over 2 gig. These two programs allow project64 to process a large amount of data
i had to use one to get djipi/bluedart majora's mask to work. i suggest applying both

www.emutalk.net/threads/32527-…
set directory as papermario
needs flicker sorting will update later

copy the first 2 examples of directory settings if i say set to that game im on about the first 1 if i say cache the second
let me know how u get on people.. this shit is frustrating but totally worth it. glad iv done it, u wont have to long as u follow my instructions
bare in mind glide64 won't work with really old gfx cards so if u follow my instructions and it isn't its probably your card or your direct X or ur drivers.. 
my specs are

Windows 7 home premium
service pack 1
intel® core™2 Quad Cpu
Q6600 @2.40GHZ
4.00 GB
64 BIT operating system

AMD Radeon R7 200 series
AMD High definition audio device
Realtek High definition audio device

and all work for me



if u know it isn't get in touch and ill try to help
another thing that apparently can be done (i couldn't get it to work) is copying .DAT files from 1964 emulator or project 64 1.6 into the cache folder

DO NOT: ask me for roms.. google is your friend
ANY1 THAT WORKS OUT PAPER MARIO'S OPTIMUM SETTINGS LET ME KNOW SAME GOES FOR FIXING SHADOW MANS LAG

The Awakening

I comand you to awaken
I comand you rise
RISE!!!

Verse

Now, our time is at hand
Burried under desert sands
You now follow my command
Rise and live again

the light of living world
Fill it with your twisted hate
life waits for thee to take
Army of the undead

Death shal you bring
Halluljua will they sing
As they fly on black wings
The end is at hand

Chorus

Sleeping under
a veil of darkness
for 3000 years

Now you must awaken!

Our time has come
Our time has come

Waiting for
your bloody vengence
To those that put you there

Our time is at hand!

Verse

Your Power is my hands
I, shal take this land
Inslave my fellow man
Let none stand against you

Black will become the sun
All, we try to run
Let my will be done
Army of the undead

Red, will be the rivers
Locusts, eating human livers
Go, my unholy death givers
Death is only the begining
Death is only the begining

Bridge 1 Spoken

So the ledgend
goes
they buried him alive
Filled the sarcopagus
with scarabs
As one by one
they slowly devoured him
The scratching, the screaming
You can still see the markings
Where he tried to escape
But eventually he was  eaten

Bridge 2

They conspired against you
For crimes you didnt do
Burried you alive in your tomb
They thought it was the end of you
But something they never knew
Is deep inside your hate grew
Your soul never made it to the otherside
Insead it waited and bided its time
Now i release you
Your vengance will be mine

Arise
I command you to awaken
Arise
I command you to awaken
Rise!!


Chorus

Sleeping under
a veil of darkness
For 3000 Years

Now i command you awaken!

Waiting for your
bloody vengance
To those that put you there

Our time is at hand!

Verse

Now, his time is at hand
Walking over desert sands
Wont follow my command
Took my soul to live again

the light of living world
Filled with his twisted hate
life waits for him to take
And his army of the undead

Death did he bring
Halluljua do the demons sing
As they fly on black wings
The end is at hand

The stars are missing from the sky,
So to is the light from my eyes,
My heart is turning to stone.

Im throwing things at the wall,
Stuck here waiting on her call,
Somehow I always end up alone.

I wish she could see,
What this is doing to me,
Something inside me feels wrong.

I know that I was lead,
Down this broken path I tread,
I look for her but shes already gone.

So why didnt she just say goodbye,
Instead of leading me on?
Why wont she reply,
Its kills me being strung along.
I said some things,
I know now that we didnt belong.
But why didnt she just say goodbye,
Instead of leading me on?

My heart was missing beats,
Then she came and knocked me off my feet,
Gave me my reason to carry on.

Even though it was only a week,
In all the pasion and the heat,
I cant help miss her now theres none.

I wish that It could change,
But ill always be the same,
cant help but say the way I feel.

I know that it was her choice,
but if I could only hear her voice,
cause at the moment nothing else is real.

So why didnt she just say goodbye,
Instead of leading me on?
Why wont she reply,
Its kills me being strung along.
I said some things,
I know now that we didnt belong.
But why didnt she just say goodbye,
Instead of leading me on?

Im walking down this lonely street,
Kicking anything thats near my feet,
Watching the cars slowly pass me by.

Thoughts are racing through my head,
But I dont want them, I want her instead,
So hurt I could die.

Thinking about all the things she said,
Id tie them together if I only had the thread,
I wish that I could just forget her.

remembering her silk  touch,
The pain in my chest is too damn much,
All i want is some closure.

So why didnt she just say goodbye,
Instead of leading me on?
Why wont she reply,
Its kills me being strung along.
I said some things,
I know now that we didnt belong.
But why didnt she just say goodbye,
Instead of leading me on?

How many times can a heart be broken?
I give mine away like its just a token,

How many times can a heart be broken?
It cant be fixed by words unspoken,

How many times can a heart be broken?
She was my dream, I guess Iv been woken,

How many times can a heart be broken?
please no more.. Im desperatley hoping.

Shes got a smile that could melt the sun,
But she dont give it to just anyone,
Her face could launch a thousands ships,
But she'd pretend not to notice it,
Yeah shes so hard to read,
Like a book about law or quantum theory,
I know shes been hurt before,
But shes taken her heart and locked the door,

When i wake up and put on my clothes
Shes the first thing on my mind, the first thing on my mind
And i know Shes been hurt before
But id take my time, Yeah we'd take my time
I know just how it feels deep inside
When you have no trust, And had enough
But take my hand give it a chance cause
this could be love, yeah this could be love
One chance could be enough.

Her head is full of so many fears
but when shes sad she wont shed a tear
She got dreams and places to go
Wants no baggage cause it'd make her to slow
Yeah Im trying my best
To try to find the answer to her unrest
I know shes been hurt before,
But shes taken her heart and locked the door,

When i wake up and put on my clothes
Shes the first thing on my mind, the first thing on my mind
And i know Shes been hurt before
But id take my time, Yeah we'd take my time
I know just how it feels deep inside
When you have no trust, And had enough
But take my hand give it a chance cause
this could be love, yeah this could be love
One chance could be enough.

Why wont you let me love you?
Why wont you let me do what iv got to do?
Why wont you let me love you?
Why wont you let me inside?
Why wont you let me love you?
Why wont you let me do what iv got to do?
Why wont you let me love you?

Im through with singin songs cause I really cant sing
Im sick of the tv and all the celebrities
This life really could, be so better for me

So tell me what you want,

I want to go to space and meet the martians
Kick one and then have an argument
Then shoot it with a laser beam.

Yeah, so what you need?

I need a whole lot of money, right now
So I can go out and buy a cow
And no I dont really care what my lyrics mean

Been there, done that,

I need a can of beer and a bit of dope
So i can get really drunk and stonned
And then think that I can be a rockstar too.

So how you gonna do it?

Im probably gonna enter one of them shows where
You go on and sing to a pair of judges

Im probably not going to be a rockstar
I probably wont own sixty three cars
I'll probably grow old and fat somewhere
With a great big beard and bushy long hair
I probably wont be married to a super model wife
I'll probably lead a less than adverage life
I probably wont get on the evening news
And I probably wont make anythin of use
Hey, hey I probably wont be a rockstar
Hey, hey I probably wont be a rockstar

I wanna be great like Elivis without the food
Gonna sit there and just sing the blues
fuck the man and this hand that he's dealt me

Ah thats a great idea..

I wanna get a tiger really high
Then push it off a cliff and see if it can fly
I dont really care that the tiger will die

So how you gonna do it?

Well first I would break into the zoo
and take all the tigers that I was gonna use

Well I probably wont be a rockstar soon
I guess I'll never land on the moon
I probably wont be in Top gear
as a celebrity star with really long hair
I'd probably be booed by simon cowel
Who works in the biz but doesnt know how
To make anything that dosnt suck
Why am I so down on my luck
I'll probably never even drive a car
I probably wont get an amp for my guitar
Im sitting on this train to nowhere
And the best bit is that I really dont care
Hey, hey I probably wont be a rockstar

Im gonna get me some of those hoes and wenches
Drink my beer sitting on park benches
I'll go out and then I'll come home
Gonna turn off my phone if I wanna be alone

Well im probably not going to be a rockstar
I probably wouldnt get a gig in a bar
I probably will never buy a pet
The money could be murder if it goes to the vets
Im probably not goin to be a rockstar
I probably wont ever move to far
I probably wouldnt even get out of bed
If there was a fire, Right downstairs
I probably will never be a rockstar
I couldnt ever get a chick to throw her bra
I was born a loser and thats how ill die
No one will come and no one will cry
Hey, hey im probably not going to be a rockstar
Hey, hey im probably not going to be a rockstar

Nickelback are awsome btw.. I just did this cause im bored XD

I dont understand
the signs are unclear
I gaze upon the stars
Just pondering, with fear

Theres a million other worlds
A trillion other souls
A billion thoughts are all swirling
Around, the tangled web of my mind

There must be another place
Somewhere, out in space
Someone on another world
with the exact same thoughts as mine

A place where it ends
Somehow time transends
But ill never know the answer
Its beyond eternity

The path of life and death
That slow but gental eb
After all, will I be remembered
when i pass?

Do we even have a choice
or just listen to that voice?
Whos to say whats right or wrong?

Theres a million of those days
and countless ways
of times in my life
that could have made the outcome change

Are we all just little toys
Drifting through this void
Is our fate predetermined
Can life not be arranged?

What is the origin
If you die.. wil you live again
If theres a place resting at the end of time
Its beyond eternity
