Default Ocarina of Time save loading problem

Alright guys im having a problem. I have created my OoT saves and downloaded others save files they worked fine before but not anymore? When i try to open them it says: Attempt to open zip file failed. "Missing or corrupt zip file - check path and file. You may need to restart the application" It would be much appreciated if you could help me with this. And yes as you prob can tell im an absolute n00b.

Stop abusing the poor man!

We're supposed to wait till Open Discussion to do that.

If you load a zipped pj state it doesn't bitch in the manner he described; it just does nothing.

haha n64 is SIXTY-FOUR BIT machine
haha ZIP LOAD FAIL means he's USING SAVE STATES

BOI'!!! High-five you're on a roll today.

When you launch the pj64 EXE, hit F5 to refresh your ROM browser.

Do you not know what a ROM dump is or something?

You can't open save files using File::Open in pj64.
You have to load the game executable image up first, then wait until after the game starts playing to handle save unloading.
