I just bought an NES with SMB/Duck Hunt, SMB2, and SMB3. All the games work fine but SMB2 and 3 have wavy lines going down the screen. The weird thing is, this doesnt happen with SMB/Duck Hunt. I tried cleaning the games and it didn't work. Any help?

If you are using a high def tv, you may have problems with those crap wavy lines! Sadly enough to maximize your experience with NES games youwillneed a standard tv. Try dropping the resolution as low as you can, this can help a great deal as I have found.

I don't know what tv you are using, but my 60 inch Mitsubishi 1080p doesn't pull the 8 bit era games off to well.... they look much better on smaller standard tv's like the one I have hooked up in my bedroom.
