    I can guarantee you that you cannot possibly get it for free legally.

    There are a couple of subscription services that you can get but I don't know of any places where you can just but Donkey Kong Country 3 unless you are going to buy it on your Wii if you have one.

    If you have Donkey Kong 3 and you download it, it's not illegal. That's the only real way unless you emulate it yourself.

    the problem is i dont have nintendo wii or other nintendo games console.i just need the rom of this game in order to play it in my pc through the emulator i have.And constantine i had the real game regurarly purchased for super nintendo.a)there is nothing left from the game or the console ;p so how can i prove i had an aeythentic copy in order to get a free rom(which is accepted by nintendo) and 2)can you mention one or 2 sites i can visit to download the rom by paying?thank you (in any case this policy makes no sense...i mean not only common sense but even commercial sense.i ve playing this shit when i was 9 and still remember everything.the only claim of the companies i understand is that there can be commercial release of these games for new consoles,i say:eek:k i want it the way it was in original console i wont insult your rights...anyway things have to be done legal)

    We are not allowed to tell you sites, but the mere fact that you haven't Googled "Donkey Kong Country 3 Rom" is quite astounding. I suggested having the real game because if for some incredibly unlikely reason you're caught with a rom, you can prove it's legality by showing you have a copy of the real game. Think of it like MP3's. Having a full album on your PC is not a crime if you have the real album. If you don't have the album, then it's piracy.

    Seriously, just Google this stuff.

    ah I forgot to mention that, thanks Constantine.

    that's right if you own the game (like with a super nintendo cartridge or for GBA or for Wii) then you are allowed to download it any place where it would be illegal for people that don't own it.

    I have never done this before since I don't prefer to play Nintendo games on the computer I only play games that are made for computer on the computer.

    actually i have googled this enough times and with variable suntaxis.what i got was thousands of sites that were just porn gateways,advertisement and spam.there are indeed some sites that offer roms' download but when i chose the specific game all the sites blocked it providing excuses for copyrights.then i went on nintendo website and there was NOT any info on how to download rom for pc emulators GENERALLY legal or not it was just NOT THERE!.(by the way what you mean you are not allowed to say sites?not even in pm's?)i think nintendo still publishes these classic games for new consoles and indeed in their site you could order one.MY PROBLEM is i dont wanna buy a console but play it in my pc...even in THE-SITES-WE-ARE-NOT-ALOUD-TO-MENTION there were offers of the real game (you know in various forms and for various consoles)but i found no ROM being in sale.so...where can i find this game rom for pc emulator?(im gonna think that there is no such way...)

    Bottom line, a lot of emulation is illegal. You can try and sugar-coat it all you want, but unless laws in your country state otherwise, downloadable roms generally breach copyright laws.

    I doubt that there are many legal ways to play SNES roms on your PC. The only roms Nintendo offer are the ones you can find for the Wii's virtual console. Otherwise, they frown upon PC emulation.

    Try searching for just emulation. Doing so brought up several sites with information on emulation and roms for me.

    Just a tip though, there is one site I will mention (even if it's not SNES related), for your safety - a website called free-game-downloads.mosw. This website is highly known for leeching downloads from other sites, such as Abandonia and Home of the Underdogs, and requires you to pay for said downloads, while the original websites offer the download for free. Avoid this website at all costs.
