Detailed Description

Low level runtime for homebrew development on the N64 platform.

libdragon handles the hardware interfaces to the various systems in the N64. The audio interface is handled by the Audio Subsystem. The controller interface, controller peripheral interface and EEPROM interface are handled by the Controller Subsystem. The display interface and RDP rasterizer are handled by the Display Subsystem. System timers are handled by the Timer Subsystem. Low level interfaces such as interrupts, caching operations, exceptions and the DMA controller are handled by the Low Level Hardware Interfaces.

libdragon makes every effort to be self-sufficient and self-configured. However, when operating in unexpected environments such as with a non-6102 CIC, additional setup may be required. Please see the documentation for sys_set_boot_cic to inform libdragon of a nonstandard CIC.
