Super Nintendo games start but levels don't

Hi, when I use my Super Nintendo some of the games start but once I click on a level (e.g. donkey kong) the screen goes black. Some games don't even get to the title screen, it just plays music from another part of the game. Any help would be lovely!

Try blowing inside the game cartridge and then the slot the game inserts into. I had this problem on my snes with some games and this helped. Other to that it may be the console is on its way out.

Ebay sell some really cheap snes consoles now. I picked one up for £15.00 with games.

My Nintendo 64 is lagging!


Definitely if you are playing one of those 3 games it is normal since those are three of the most graphic intensive games ever released for the console besides Goldeneye 007 and Perfect Dark. Just like if you remember the days of the original nintendo if you had more than 8 characters/sprites on screen at once the game would crawl until you killed one of the sprites! LOL But for those 3 games if you have a lot of graphics on screen with a lot of textures at certain points in a level it will definitely slow down the frame rate for sure. The only way to remedy this is to attach a heat sink fan to your Nintendo 64 processor similar to how you attach one to a computer but that would have to be a custom job or just play the games on Emulator on your PC. Cheers!

How to play Donkey Kong 64 without Expansion pack


Donkey Kong 64 was one of only three Nintendo 64 games to require the Expansion Pak (the others being The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Perfect Dark), which provides 4 MB more RAM for enhanced graphics and more expansive environments, as well as to fix a game-breaking bug.We don't think that you can play this game with no expansion pack. I have tried to play perfect dark with no expansion pack and it was not all there then.

Can i still get the 20 free games on eshop because i pre order the 3ds and i did not get the games


Getting the free games will require you to have either performed a system update or connected to the eShop some time PRIOR to August 12th. The games are not currently available in the eShop, so if you don't see them yet, don't panic. Nintendo has announced it will make the 10 free NES games available as of September 1st, and the 10 free GBA games will be available "before the end of 2011". The announced game list, so far, is:

Nintendo:
  1. Super Mario Bros.™
  2. Donkey Kong Jr.™
  3. Balloon Fight™
  4. Ice Climber™
  5. The Legend of Zelda™

Gameboy Advance:
  1. Yoshi's Island™: Super Mario™ Advance 3
  2. Mario Kart™: Super Circuit
  3. Metroid™ Fusion
  4. WarioWare™, Inc.: Mega Microgame$
  5. Mario vs. Donkey Kong™

Control Problems I dont know if its my controller my snes or my games I only have two games Super Mario World and Donkey Kong Country. On Super Mario the only buttons that work are the B and Start...


I'd say it sounds like an issue with either the controller or the port on the system. My advice to you would be to try a different controller, and try switching ports on the console. The games should be fine, though.

What is it about?


The N64 is the third home-console published by Nintendo and is the successor of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES). It was competing with the Playstation 2 and the Dreamcast.
The name Nintendo 64 comes from the fact that it was one of the first 64-Bit consoles. The "64" can also be found in various game titles like "Super Mario 64" oder "Donkey Kong 64".
The console was released in 1996 and the last game was released in 2002.
Which made this console popular was mostly the nintendo only milestones. The Zelda game (Ocarina of time) is among fans, still the best Zelda game ever released. It was also the debut of the first 3D Mario and Donkey Kong games.

Just bought new Mario vs donkey kong game but when I insert it in correctly it doesn't do anything "no game in slot". No problem with any other game


Is your DSi and Donkey Kong both from the same region? If your system is not from North America but the game is, then Donkey Kong will not work . I know that almost all the other games are region free, but for some reason Donkey Kong does not seem to be that way system. I have an Australian DSi and this is the one game that I cannot get to work, tried multiple copies.

Hope this helps,
Mike!

You're talking about Donkey Kong 64 right?

If so, you need to buy an Expansion Pak.
