Thanks! I'll check out the link and YouTube. This is all I wanted, some help in setup without the politics, exchanges & threats, so I appreciate you taking the time to help me.
"You get 10 save slots per game, if you have a save that you want to reaload. Start the game with the save and hit left trigger and select and it will load. You change save slot by using select and up or down on d pad."
Thanks! I've managed to load the game with your advice, but it seems to be select & right/left for loading different saving slots. There looks like there's countless saving slots...! I've, say, selected saving slot 2 and let go of right & select, but nothing appears to have loaded. When I press up or down with select nothing appears to happen.
" To set up your controller hit start(with working controller) and bring up emulation stsation menu. I dont have it in front of me but there will be an option to re map a controller. Select it and go threw the prompts with the snes controller until setup. You will have less buttons then it asks for so just hold an already mapped key down to skip those buttons."
When I hit start I get 'main menu' the. Scraper, sound settings, ui settings, other settings, configure input and quit. I've always clicked on configure input to which a box comes up detecting 3 game pads (two PS3 and one SNES) and prompts me to hold a button to configure, which I've done so and pressed each button it prompts me too until it gets to what would be PS3 controller buttons in which I have to use the PS3 controller to skip down the list and press ok. It's from this point I can use my snes pihut controller, but not whilst in an actual game, only to select the console and games themselves. :(
"Not sure about the 64 games problem, the pi3 cant run most of them anyway. Check the compatability spreadsheet in the wiki. You could try changing the emulator by pressing "a" when you load up a game and muck around with it there. Or lower the resoultion."
Thanks!! That did actually work. I changed the emulator to mupen64plus-gles2n64 and from doing so it didn't jump as much with the intro and the picture (brightness, colour) was a lot better and it's now playable.

I bought the all in one as I'd like to add kodi to it . Should arrive next week hopefully.
So, I'm just stuck with not being to use the pihut snes controller. I can only do as mentioned and come out of the game with start & select, but not use any other buttons :/ maybe I went to the wrong screen when pressing start, but that's all I could see there, the configuration, which I went through, but still no joy :(
