the word zelda appears 44 times on page 1 of this thread....I have yet to understand how this relates to zelda...
SO instead i will tell you about a great emulator I downloaded specifically to play legend of zelda
ocarina of time.
Project 64. It is great. It has a built in game shark that you can use to make your own codes if you use a memory scanner during game play and
customize your own cheats. I was stuck on the archery range in the Gerudo fortress trying to get the large quiver. I wanted to play the game all the
way through without cheats ( ended up compromising). The only one I used regularly was infinite money, because I wasnt going to do hours of rupee
whoring for things like a dumb potion....
SO anyways I used a memory scanner while shooting a couple arrows , found the address and value and I was good to go, I made a code for the game shark
built into the emulator. 99 arrows seemed like enough. Needless to say that I got well over 2000 points and I was done. Using a mouse to aim can be a
pain in the ass. The good thing about this emulator is that it is well developed. I downloaded a patch that allowed mouses to be used as secondary
controllers. That was great. I needed it for the lost woods target thing with the sling shot, where if you shoot the bulls eye three times a skull kid
pops out and upgrades your deku seed pouch. The arrow keys were impossible. Also trying to do all the side games for heart pieces was really hard with
just the keyboard.
So I had an issue though. I accidentally clicked on the already included cheat for "get biggordonsword". That sucked. I was doing the trading sequence
and got all the way up to the giant gordon on the top of death mountain with the "best eye drops" so he would fix by broken giants knife and turn it
into the biggordon sword. He would not accept it!
I looked and sure enough I already had it.What was I to do. I wanted 100% completion. I realized that I needed to modify the cheat and enable it
again. I changed the value of xxxxxxx-xx01 to a flase value of xxxxxxx-xx00. I was good to go, I lost the biggordon sword. I then manually added a
cheat I copied from the internet for having the broken giants knife. That was it. I went back to the giant gordon on the top of death mountain and he
stopped crying. I gave him the "best eye drops" and he gave me my claim ticket!! Fantastic!....
So I played the sun song 4 times to make the amount of "game time" pass and claimed my giantgordon sword.
I also learned about a glitch where after getting the big gordon sword, and after using that slot for ALL side quests, that you dont really need that
slot. The claim ticket just sits there in your inventory menu and is completely useless.
What I learned was that if you equip a bottle and pick up a fish, bugs, whatever, and before link finishes the swipe to fill the bottle, you open your
inventory and equip the claim ticket in the exact slot you had the bottle in.
What happens is that the bottle is filled and you gain a new bottle in that slot where the claim ticket was....so you can have a total of 5!!!!
bottles and no useless claim ticket. You can replace any item but you need the rest. Really you could replace the deku seeds or deku sticks. The fire
spells and fire arrows make carrying deku sticks redundant. Be careful though, once an item is replaced with a bottle it is gone for ever.
I also noticed that the fishing pond in lake hylia has a trick. The biggest catch will always sit by the log half way to the bottom of the pond. I
didnt get the heavy sinker, but I dont think I needed it. I also didnt get the shovel this time around.
I only got the emulator and played this game again because I convinced my friend to lend me his nintendo 64 the a month after he just got it and it
just came out. I proceeded to play zelda for him and beat the game. He was really bad at it, but wanted a decent save game. I then played for 6 months
without a guide and got him to about 90+% completion. All I needed was to fight the final battle, get the golden gloves, and a quarter heart piece I
already found but just needed to get to with the hook shot in a temple that I missed.
So he decided that he wanted his console back and that I could finish at his house.....I never played again. I was really pissed at him. I could have
finished in 5 more hours. He let me play for almost 6 months and then the last day acts like a prick!??!?
So I saw the emulator and thought that this was my time. I got it, and rocked it out. I remembered tons of stuff and only used a guide for the golden
I am at 99.99 completion. I just need to walk through and do little things like get the big sinker for fishing, and things like that. I finished every
side quest and did every game. I only cheated using codes as I mention before and for the water temple. I F-ing HATED the water temple. At the end I
just used a levitate code instead of making the water rise and fall a thousand times to get to the various doors.
You know what happened though after watching the credits. I was post orgasm not interested anymore.
I am done with Zelda for life.....no more. Ninetendo has nothing hanging over me head. I beat every game I ever played on their consoles. I am
OP, I hope this helps....
Oh and the golden tunic doesnt do anything, it just looks cool. It is a great cheat as a sort of treat after you beat the game. Dont save with cheats
or use them really too much or they glitch your game badly. They have bad side effects.
