My buddy is letting me borrow his N64 and I'm having fun, but I had a question. He has games like Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 with saves already on them. I want to play the games fresh, but don't want to delete his saves. Is there any way to do this?
Not really. If your borrowing the stuff, you might as well just play through the games in one sitting or leave the system on/not shutting it off. Or you could buy your own copies if you plan to get your own system eventually anyway.
I don't think these files keep track of date.
Just start a new file, play away, then when you have to return the game to him just start a new file, get these 4 stars and nothing happened, his files are intact.
Anyway, your friend sounds like a faggot, 4 files is plenty. Especially on a game like SM64 that lets you get stars as many times as you want.
