    Can't remember how to solve this one, being on a Swedish install of XP makes me a tad less inclined to randomly click options which I sometimes don't know what they 100% do :) Trying to stop XP from automatically trying to install drivers for me on startup - this often bugs the shit out of me...

    Wierd Mario Tennis problem

    Whilst using the latest plugin in OpenGL mode... this is the title screen (and bear in mind this is the U rom). Going to assume this is a similar issue to the name input screen on one of the Zeldas?
