As Shadow blade said your best bet would to find the source of where it is, or to simply download a new emulator that is more reliable. Either way, i think it is against Zelda Dungeon rules to discuss emulators, so i would recommend you find somewhere to chat with someone.I don't think it was ZNES, but something happened when I tried to open the ROM on the emulator. Cue 8-months of website failures and internet connection problems.
Everybody is entitled to their opinion.I wouldn't play it if I were you unless it's some Zelda pride kinda thing. aLttP is one of the worst games I've ever played. The only Zelda (aside from CDi) that's worse is AoL.
The only bad thing with this is the "bland combat" part. Like AoL it introduced a new way link can attack. The Spin Attack first appeared in this game, which made combat less repetitive.I guess it's a matter of taste, and I don't know what games you played...but think LoZ, a TINY bit more story, slightly easier, and more bland combat. Oh sure, you had items, but even assuming you found all the hidden ones, a lot of them do more or less the same thing and you won't be using them because of that pain in the *** magic meter. The story and characters haven't reached modern post LA levels yet (even that isn't much), the puzzles are few and very simple. There's little structure, the difficult curve is almost non-existant, but I will admit it is one of the harder Zelda titles. Still, see how dull and repetitive running up and mashing B is, I don't see it as that appealing. Eh maybe watch a Let's Play or something before handing over your money.
Overall, though, the biggest flaw this game has is how much time is wasted doing nothing. You'll find yourself stuck doing boring side quests until you finally found one you were supposed to do. You will then spend another 5 minutes tearing your hair out because the game left no hint you had to do a sidequest or even which sidequest you had to do. And then other times you'll think you need to go off the path and do something else--but no, it turned out you just gave up too quickly. The answer was in this randomly hidden area over here. Oh well, that's three hours you wasted doing nothing instead of studying for your math final--I'm sure you'll do fine.
This game is ****ing awesome basically. And v @ PT.I'm not going to give any lengthy explanation as to why you should play ALttP, and ultimately, it's your choice.
A Link to the Past is where it all started. It is the roots of the Zelda series. That's right - not LoZ, but ALttP. Just about every game after ALttP uses many of this game's mechanics. Ever played Ocarina of Time? I consider A Link to the Past very similar to that game but better. Maybe not more enjoyable, but better. ALttP itself is not my favorite game in the series, but it is what I consider to be the best, and probably one of the best games in the world. This game represents Zelda, and has definitely defined it.
