roms are illegal so i wont tell you where to get them. but i will explain the operation of emulating them.

whatever emulator you have and whatever system it emulates i dont know. First you need to know the file types:

snes: smc, sfc, fig, and probably some im forgeting.
nes: nes,fmc
n64: u64, v64, ect.

Obviously you need the emulator of the correct system. i reccomend
snes: zsnes, snes9x
nes: nesticle, fce ultra, (everyone has there own prefrence)
n64: project64, mupen64, UltraHLE 2064

als you do is load the rom to the emulator (file/load/..) and it should run.

n64 emulators require plugins.

If you're comfortable with IRC, I'm sure you can find plenty of channels that offer ROM fserves.

Another way to do it is to search on Google for "<Name of game you want> rom <system you want it for>"
For example, if you were looking for Super Contra for the NES, you&#39;d use "super contra rom nes". This method will give you a lot of shitty results, but you will eventually be able to find what you&#39;re looking for.

What system are you trying to emulate?
