Yes, I'm a pompous ass for using "query," but it got your attention tho, eh?
1) Where do I get the best SNES emulator? Email me at oosyxxx@yahoo.com if you don't want to post a link here.
2) What is "strafe-jumping" in Quake III? I've heard of this, yet I've never seen it explained, don't know if I've seen it done, yet QIII players insist it makes QIII better than UT. Oh, and how do you do it?

hmm. well, i use snes9x, mostly for my old favourite rpg, secret of mana, seeing as though my cartridge for the snes is fuxxored...
but there arent much in the way of sites for roms that havent been shut down already...

www.zsnes.com

circle strafe and jump and if you do it right you pick up like 50% extra speed. All The Kids are doing it nowadays

Thank you, @kuma ;) I don't have QIII installed but it has been bugging me lately so I thought I'd ask here rather than register at some QIII forum. Looks like zsnes is down :( Any brave soul care to upload a zipped emulator? How big is it, btw?

id upload mine, but as i said, gettin roms is a real pain. you'd be better off with kuma's. probably.

in case you never played it, i reckomend secret of mana. its a great rpg, if somewhat cartony in places. or are you after other types of game?

I use(d) zsneswv1.14r0.80 the zip of which comes in at 416KB. can't recall where I got it from or I'd give you the link to there:(
but I'm on cable, so sending you the zip as an attachement wouldn't take long, if you want.

Strafe Jumping : if you jump while strafing in q3a, you will go slightly faster and further than a normal jump. This is actually a bug which ID 'decided' to leave in although i suspect they are just too incompetent to fix it ;)

gosh!!! that is one bad game... :eek2:


for a "straight" version try Strip Fighter 2 on the PC-Engine.
Here (http://members.fortunecity.com/wolftrubshaw/pceproject/index.html) you'll find a review with some pix (all pix there have alt texts).

yes they do. I tested the emu one and it worked, and I actually d/l-ed the rom through it.
but I'll send you both through the mail.

Can't a guy download a "gay game" in hopes of a laugh without being gay at the same time? /me awaits flurry of unfunny attempts at being epigrammatic
