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.
The following statement is false.
The previous statement is true.

As I mentioned before, no menu pops up when I hit Up+A on controller 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.
