The two (2) NES Controllers are identical and can be plugged into
any socket number, but the select and start buttons will work
only on the controller plugged into socket #1. For one-player
games or when you are playing a game alone, the controller must
be plugged into socket #1.
SELECT - Each Game Pak may contain several variations of the
game. The *select* button is used to choose the particualar
variation you want to play from the menu displayed on the screen
at the beginning of the game.
START - After selecting the game variation you want from the
menu, push the *start* button to begin the game. The *start*
button can also be used to pause the game. Pushing the *start*
button in the middle of a game will cause it to "freeze" until
you push the *start* button again.
NOTE: Some games may have no pause function or may have a
different function for botht the *select* and *start* buttons.
Consult the instruction manual for the Game Pak you are using.
A-B BUTTONS - The *A* and *B* buttons are used for the majority
of game play. On each game, the *A* and *B* buttons will have a
different function. Consult the instruction manual for the Game
Pak you are using.
CONTROL PAD - The *control pad* is used for moving game
characters around the screen, and will be different for each
game. Consult the instruction manual for the Game Pak you are
