Step 3: Run the Games

To run these games on your school computer, plug in your flash drive. Open the Emulator file and click the shortcut. This should run the emulator. To play a game, click  File, Open Rom, then choose a game. Have fun!
<p>Does this work on chrome books because my school gave us our own chromebook </p>
<p>my school has blocked <a href="http://www.coolrom.com/" rel="nofollow">http://www.coolrom.com/</a> on the computers ... any other way?</p>
<p>just download at home on a flash drive and bring it to school</p>
<p>because i'm <strong><em>REALLY</em></strong> craving bomber man!</p>
<p>or do i have to go the long way #AtHome</p>
Does this work for macs? They got macs at my school.
i tried it on a mac book, it doesn't work<br><br><br>
no you need to download special emulators for that. You can find them at cool rom
Can you do this with an SD Card?
Yes. An SD card is still a flash card just for a different port type.<br><br>As long as it has the space, this will work fine. :)
my school blocks applactions from being opened with a flash drive.
Great concept! Also this should work with any emulator/rom, not just the N64.
I did this in middle school. I'm pretty sure you screenshotted my flash drive, because I have the exact same game files....Of course, it's illegal to download the game without owning a real life copy, but I don't think people pay attention to that very much.
i would get suspended for this it says in my hand book students will not bring unauthorized software and use them on our computers. but good concept though i can still do this for my other computers as well as my friends computers
You say <em>This <strong>should </strong>run the emulator -</em> which I take to mean &quot;I don't know whether this works, because I haven't tried it. But I think it would&quot;<br> ?<br> <br> L<br>
No, i have done this on my school omputer as well as my own personel computer. You are right. it should say it will run the emulator.
<br> Great - can you add some details to it about the school-system? They'll be useful for people to know what this does work on.<br> <br> L<br>
I forgot to add that you will need to install the emulator also. This takes about a minute. After downloading the emulator onto your flash drive, you will see a shortcut for project 64. Click on it and make sure to install the file <em>onto your flash drive</em>. Several files should appear after the installation. To run the emulator, click on the red shortcut.<br>
awesome ible. i started doin this in like2 years ago but i used doom and wolfenstein 3d. if they upped some of the pcs i might try and get battlefield 2 on them.
How big should the Flash Drive be? This will be perfect in my Marketing class where all we do is two day projects on the computers(that we get a week to work on). Great Instructable! P.S. Super Smash Bros is great!
Does not have to be very large unless you are going to download every game in existence.:) A one gigabyte Flash drive should do.
My high school blocks usage of the USB ports...
This &quot;should&quot; also work from a burnt CD. Just burn your ROMs and emulator to a CD-R and you should be able to run it from the disk. I've successfully used a Nintendo emulator from a mini-CD.
I thought about doing that, but I was going to install firefox, so there wouldn't be any browser proxies. Might try it... But my teacher has some software that allows him to see everybody's monitor at once, so it would be risky.
I've been searching for a good N64 Emulator for a while now, thanks! Check out http://www.retrousb.com/ for original USB Nintendo controllers.
this describes my entire networking and html classes in high school freshman year. great game choice to ssb is awesome
You might add that this is illegal if you don't own physical copies of the games.
I think this might be illegal where I live.
