Question about Nintendo Super NES Console

3 Answers

Games are messing up

I have only two games for my Super Nintendo, Super Mario and the first Donky Kong Country. The Donky Kong is messing up on the water boards only, the picture will go off my character and begin to "roll" through various other parts of the board. The character still stays alive and on some boards I can swim through the bad part and complete the level. I am, however, now stuck on one of the higher level water boards and my guys die because I can't see them. My first thoughts were that the game cartridge was bad. I ordered one online and it is doing this in the exact same spots as my other cartridge. Is is my console, or have a had two bad cartridges in a row? Also on Super Mario, the character dissappears as soon as I get to the map to select a board. Thanks!

    What is a firmware? I searched the link on the advice and only firmwares were for the Wii. Is this a problem in the system? Would it be easier to buy another system or fix this one?

This will be a problem with the graphics card in the machine, and will easier to purchase a new system rather than fixing the old. You might check to see if there is a Game Zone in your area, the one here does console repairs at a reasonable rate.

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™

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.
