  3. Zelda save method not working?
5 years ago#1
I heard you are supposed to hold L+R then press Y to switch to controller 2, then press Up+A to bring up the save menu. I can switch to the second controller with no problem, but no menu pops up for me. Is there a certain method in which Up+A needs to be pessed? As a kid I never used this way to save, I just would always wait til I died.

This is the correct method.
I'm guessing everyone saying it doesn't work weren't in the item menu when they switched to player 2.

Can't blame you. Barely 1 minute difference between the creation of both topics.

Are you in the menu when you switch to player 2?

Oooh I see what I was doing wrong. You had said "pause" so I got confused. The item menu and pause are two completely different things. Y or Select pauses the game, while Start brings up the item menu.

Well, sorry about that, then. Not really used to use the Select button.
