    I. Introduction
    
    	Okay people.  I am Lord Wack, and this save state hacking FAQ was
    	made for the Adventures of Link/Zelda2 rom for the Jnes Nintendo
    	emulator.  Basically all you need is to download a hex editor
    	program, then find the "goto" command and enter in the offset(s) I
    	have made available to you, then change them.
    	
    	To get to the file to hex, just run your emulator and the game you
    	wish to make a file of, then go to cpu, then to save.  It will save
    	the file to the save folder where your roms are(unless you messed
    	with the settings).  When your done hexing the file, simply save it,
    	then open up your emulator, run the game, then go to cpu, then to
    	restore.

    II. FAQ History
    
    	This is version 1.2 of the FAQ.  It is simple and to the point.
    	This is my first FAQ to ever make so tell me how you like it
    	everyone.  My email is down in the Contact section.  (1.1) I have
    	modified the writting so it can easily be read without having to
    	scroll.  (1.2) I have added short descriptions of items, spells,
    	and statistics.

    VI. Credits
    
    	Credits go out to Nintendo, Jnes emulator, and to my Mother who
    	helped me beat the last boss to the original Legend of Zelda on
    	Nintendo.  I had one of those cartridges that could not save files,
    	so I stayed up one whole day playing through Zelda.  At about
    	midnight I reached Gannon, but I was having trouble beating him.
    	My mom was waiting for me to go to sleep, so she took the control
    	from me and killed Gannon herself so I could see the ending of the
    	game.
