I never played Zelda:MM on Surreal64 but OOT did crash a lot when trying to load savestates (It only ever happened when loading the savesate for the first time, if it loaded then I could save & load state at will).
Try loading the savestate as soon as the rom loads (sometimes it would take five attempts to actually get it to load), also make sure you save to mempak regulary as well (Which works fine).
I'd leave MM until the update for surreal64 as I believe Rice's 5.6.0 fixes a lot of problems and hopefully the savestate problem will be ironed out. (Loading savestates only seems to be a problem on certain big roms 24+meg, I suspect a memory issue.)
I wouldn't let it put you off this emulator rocks and it's the nicest way I've found to play 4 player N64 games without actually having an N64.
No it's not it's freakydave release which is exactly the same as surreal64 1.0 but with a couple of features but no updated video plugins and no core code changes just joypad sensitivity (Essential for many games but none I actually play) and a way to turn off the xbox's in built flicker filter to get extra sharpness.
We're going to have to wait for oDD to find time to update it but I waited 6 months last time I can happily wait a year this time. I still have my N64 in case of emergency's.
It should be noted that surreal has had several updates by other authors to include 5.3.1 and the 5.6 rice's plugin I've not tried it for more than a couple of minutes but pilot wings was a lot better.
Guys... im getting really envious reading ur posts!!! i cant get my surreal64 to see the roms on my xbox, has anyone had this problem in the past? its driving me nuts!! i configured all the proper .ini files to point to where my roms are stored but it still cant find them when i fire it up.
Is possible convert Surreal64 of Xbox to GC? Now the things are totally diferent to GC. Don't need BBA adapters, you can use Action Replay+SD, or modchips. Converting Surreal64 to GC should be awesome.
If somebody want convert and don't know GC develop, try this links:
