Using the Project 64 emulator, you can play roms of Nintendo 64 games on your computer. In order to play the game, you'll need to set up the controls. You can use the control button presets or change the controls of your keyboard or analog stick according to your playing preferences.

Open Project 64.

Click "Options." Scroll down and click "Configure Controller Plugin."

Click the drop-down menu and select your input device.

Click the button next to each corresponding Nintendo 64 controller button and press the button on your keyboard or analog device that you want to assign to it. You have six seconds to assign each button.

Click "OK" after you have assigned each control button.

Press each button in game based on the assignments you made in the input configuration. For example, if you assigned the "W" key on the keyboard to act as the "A" button on the Nintendo 64 controller, press the "W" key in the game to use it for this purpose.
