    for Zelda, you're better off owning the game.
    Or you could wait til later this year when the Nintendo Wii comes out, and you can legally download N64, SNES and NES games to play on the one console (as well as Wii games) I'm hanging out for mine so I can finally play some of the great Japanese games never seen overseas.

    Anyway, I'm not sure if discussion of emulators would be allowed here.

    Emulation is perfectly legal as long as you own an original copy of the game. Kind of like backing up CD/DVDs, I suppose.

    The two emulators you named are optimized for a fairly limited number of games. Games that used the processor expansion pack (the thing that came with the games that plugged into the N64) will not usually run on an emulator, which I'm pretty sure the second Zelda64 game did...

    I know Ocarina of Time works, though.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    do you mean the Wind Waker bonus disc? That came with Master Quest, which was Ocarina of Time, not Majora's Mask.

    I think that's the logical argument that a lot of people follow. I've seen ROM sites that claim this is untrue, and that ROMs are downloaded at your own risk. I'd like to believe it's OK to use them, but having read that at a ROM site, it's pretty hard not to take notice

    Whichever it may be, ROMs can't beat the experience of the original game.

    He's talking about the Zelda Collector's Editin Disc, which Nintendo mailed out to people who had five Nintendo games registered on their website in late 2004 (could be wrong on the year). It included the two original NES Zeldas, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, a History of The Legend of Zelda featurette, and a Wind Waker trailer.

    somebody tell nintendo that. they have a nasty habit of absolutely reaming people. which is totally BS because if you EMU 007 golden eye, its not like they could POSSIBLY make money off of it. the system is ten years old and GONE.

    in any event, are there any EMU's that i can use my xbox 360 PC controller with? i have a NES and A MAME and neither recognize this device, which is totally a shame, it's the perfect controller.

    man, wish I had known about that... The two NES Zelda's are the two I haven't played much. I think I've got all the others. I would suspect they'll be available on Wii, so not all hope is lost

    in any event, are there any EMU's that i can use my xbox 360 PC controller with? i have a NES and A MAME and neither recognize this device, which is totally a shame, it's the perfect controller.
    ah, I think I know that controller. Just like the 360 one, but with a USB cord? Does that even work for mac? I thought it was windows only. Perhaps it's so new that drivers don't exist for it for emulators? A shame, because it's a beautiful controller. Have you got it to work for other games?

    I've been trying to play some N64 games on my Mac but I can't (at least in a decent manner). I've downloaded Mupen64 and Sixtyforce and both emulators run games like Mario 64, Mario Kart and Banjo Kazooie in slow motion (literally). I can't play like that. Am I doing something wrong? I'm running a 17 inch Core 2 Duo iMac, 512MB of RAM.

    And also where can I find games, be it N64 or SNES or NES, Gamecube, etc? Thanks in advanced.
