Default Zelda Ocarina of Time - Saved Game?

I was up to the point after the water temple where you head to Kakariko Village, hit F5 to save and the game froze, now when I try to reload the save point I get a Fatal Error message. Any idea how I can sort this out or anywhere I can find a save file online thats anywhere close to where I was ?

NEVER rely on save states, I still don't know why people don't understand this >.>

zilmar should remove unreliable features

instead 2.0 was released without any proper testing

I guess save states were never stable, not even on the other emus. IDK about mupen though, but they take a longer time to R/W on that.



Not only that, but save states are bad for your diet.

You want a save near x point in ZeldaOOT grab one of natnaterdaterpot's saves; he uploaded a crapload.

I've only just started using Project 64 a few days ago, I was originally saving normally through the game but it wasn't working properly and I kept losing progress for whatever reason so I started using Save States and assumed that was what I was supposed to be doing all along.

It's always safe to rely on save states, when you have a backup.

The backup is usually those native save files.
i.e. you press START, B to ask if you want to save, say Yes

Those are the files you can get from here (lolwut was dat url again--)

go through the TXT links on the right for the descriptions on how far in the game it was; I don't remember which is which , hopefully one of them was close to what you wanted
