annoying problem with the Nes
by on (#14420)
It works in some games i have. there is this thing that moves up and down in smb3 that alway appears always in the bottom left corner of the screen but it doesn't appear on any emulator i tried. what's wrong with my Nes? was it programed wrong?

right two yhings wrong i don't know how to attach snapshots and it's not an emulator.
The glitch is *supposed* to be there.

Then you need to get a better emulator. That glitch at the top left corner of the SMB3 status bar appears in Nintendulator and Nestopia in exactly the same way it appears on an NES. It's a known bug in the actual game.

And to post screenshots, use Google to find some sort of free image hosting.

is image hosting difficult? and why not be able to upload images directly?

You can upload images directly, just not to this server. It's not difficult if you use Google: image hosting

I just use tinypic.com, but nintendulator emulates the glitch in the SMB3 status bar perfectly.

Hit "print screen" on the top of your keyboard, open paint and hit, file>paste. than save a jpeg.

Next you go here, register real quick.

Enjoy :D :D

Or if you're like me, I just upload EVERYTHING on to my freewebs account. If you want a place to just put files, then go do what they said. But if you have a website, just upload everything there.

But it's only on a real Nes.

by on (#14839)
Anything that shows up on NES hardware should show up in Nintendulator, including the SMB3 screen split glitch you speak of.

But on Nesterjj the start up scrren ground moves up and down. What is the reason the status bar exist?

No but. A game not working on "Nesterjj" does not contradict it working on the NES.

Maybe I'm stating the obvious here; the status bar exists so you can monitor your status during the game.

It doesn't really say much...

by on (#14875)
It says what's relevant, unlike you. But indeed, the game would be so much better if you could see the weather status, Mario's mood, heartbeat, hunger, and whether or not he needs to pee.

Mario Adventure?

Heartbeat? The >>>>>P seems to represent something similar.

Quote:
hunger

Go to the map. If Mario's hungry, you can press B and feed him some mushrooms (mushroom icon) or some sunflower seeds (flower icon).

We all need to Wii, and SMB3 will almost certainly be a Virtual Console launch title.

Conker's Bad Fur Day (I've never played it though)?

The sun is a big ball of fire. Therefore a sun flower must be a fire flower.

The star is it some kinda drug that glows?

This is no longer relevant.
