Question by SkaterDoodle@live.com: I want to play Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past again!?
Its such a fantastic game! The graphics for some reason I can’t complain about because its such a classic look. And the music? Sets the mood perfectly. Now, I’ve heard of ROMS and EMULATORS but can’t seem to ever get them working. I have a laptop and its basic. If a game boy can play this game I am sure that my laptop can.
Here are just some more facts
1. I love this game especially because its one of the good memories from my child hood, because my dad would play it before he became an overworked, yet successful business man. Also it was family time watching him beat it lol. Then he passed on to me when he became more into his work, and now he makes 29 dollars an hour in a small office job. email me about that for more history. I like story telling! haha.
2. Our family is divorced now and the snes is in my room in a box. The slot for the rectangular game card goes in is loose, so whenever i touch the snes and its loud enough to make a noise the game plays a funny yet kinda spooky suprise barrage of all sound effects playing in order in rapid succession. With the final battle music playing. Haha. This happens with all my games… A little tug of the controller will trigger this also. It not only intterupts my gaming time for a session of blowing air between the cartrige like my dad used to and then hammering it down (don’t do that anymore!) but it wipes the memory of the game. I like beating it again, but its just i like to collect everything, and the beggening gets repetitive.
Questions more clear here without story:
Step by step, how can I play LOZ: A Link to the Past, or any other snes game like mario, and that paint mario! i remember that! and simcity all that good stuff, on my laptop at my moms and pc at my dads house?
Can i put the game and emulators on a jump drive or some portable way to get it on my other computers that have no internet access?
How can i fix the Snes sensitivity issue? (read above if u haven’t)
Can I do this all for free? Even if its not by the books if u catch my drift…
Is there a controller I can buy for computers? or can i use my xbox 360 controller somehow? I also have everything i need to play on my snes, but if it breaks so will my heart because that was our family thing, around a old tv and my little body hidding behind the couch because of the green snake boss or whatever that is. haha so i want to avoid using the system itself, controllers are ok.
I do have a like to the past on gba and it died of natural causes a couple days later. As in it was cheap. I’m playing my snes now. I don’t want a gba. Its all about the xbox 360 portable. When it comes out. Anyone else?

A link to the past was also re-released on the GBA. I know because I have it. As to your SNES I would say to get it serviced, there still are a few places that do do that kind of work. Since it doesn’t seem to be the game(s).
You can download emulators online although the sources vary and Idon’t know the PC requirements as I don’t personally do that. Blowing into the carts doesn’t work. Try cotton ear swabs and rubbing alcohol (91% preferred as it evaporates faster).
