At this point I'd be suspect that "doesn't use plugins" really just means "stole Pete's code" (no, I'm not saying that's the case, just that a new emulator cut from whole cloth by unkonwn people is usually suspect). But I'll give it a try.
ETA: it doesn't work with real CD drives. I installed the genuine Adaptec ASPI layer for XP and it claims my DVD writer "isn't a CD drive". Which is strictly true, but not useful in this instance.
And the N64 emulator of everyone's dreams is gonna be called "MAME/MESS". Really. http://www.mameworld.net/vlinde/
