If you want to save at Mt. LavaLava, you must find the hotkeys for your emulator and create a save state. In addition, saving Paper Mario with the regular save blocks works, too.
If you are having issues with saving and updating your ROM, I suggest checking the file extension of your game. If you have Project64 Version 1.6, you can save in .z64 and .v64 files, but not .n64 files.
In the case that you still cannot save, I suggest trying other methods like installing or reinstalling Project64 onto your computer. During the installation of Project64, a folder will be created in the "Program Files" menu of your C Drive (if you have a Windows operating system). Within the Project64 folder, compressed .zip folders will contain your saves for each game, so you can load to whichever point you need to resume with the ROM.
I don't have one and am satisfied without one for now. Honestly, my priorities [and those of my peers] shouldn't include that kind of activity because there is so much prep and work to do for classes and websites such as "smwcentral."
Hmmm . . . That's a teenager's perspective, but I know that many people disagree with this one. Eh, too many adolescents are promiscuous these days. =I
I am a fan of "side-scrollers" and "story" video games. My favorite video games of all time are Super Mario World (SNES), Super Mario 64 (N64), Animal Crossing (GC), Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2 (GC) . . . There are others, but you get the idea. :3
As a horror movie, it invoked some fear from me at the disturbing scenes. There is one scene with an austere contortion that seriously shocked me, and whenever I become frightened or scared, I blush and begin to cry . . . Although it wasn't as scary as most horror films, it was enough for me.
Check it out if "horror" is the genre for you:
I currently have Windows Vista and have had it for 27 months.
My preference is Windows because I am most familiar with it . . .
However, Macs are more affordable in the long run, since everything is compressed into a beautiful package.
About Linux, I use it all the time in my VMWare Workstation, but that virtual machine, Ubuntu, is a bit annoying because I simply do not want to customize everything to my taste. For those who enjoy D.I.Y.'s and design, Linux is the way to go, fo'shizzle.
Errrr . . . Windows is great if you know how to eviscerate its errors and viruses, which I am lucky to know from YouTube tutorials. xD
