F-Zero X, is a futuristic racing video game for the Nintendo 64 (N64) console. F-Zero X is the third released installment in the F-Zero series and the first released video game in the franchise to feature 3D graphics. The game has a steep learning curve and its gameplay experience is similar to that of the original F-Zero title. However, the title does introduce a "death race" mode and a random track generator called the "X Cup". In the death race, the player's objective is to annihilate the 29 other racers as speedily as possible, while the X-Cup "creates" a different set of tracks each time played.

Emulation Information

No Controller Rumble

As was the case in the official Wii Virtual Console release, there is no support for the original Nintendo 64 release's Rumble Pak functionality, even when emulating or connecting a GameCube controller.



Throughout the menus, the game uses a transition effect, dissolving/wiping whatever is on the screen to go to the next menu. With EFB Copies to Texture Only, instead of dissolving the current screen to the next screen, it changes to the N64 logo and wipes that away to the next screen. Disable EFB Copies to Texture Only to fix this. EFB Copies to Texture Only is disabled in the game ini since at least 5.0-10413.
