Title: Will there ever be an Ocarina of Time "Total Control" hack?
Post by: Sauraen on March 14, 2015, 11:12:57 pm
What do you all think? The N64 is a much more complicated machine than the SNES or Game Boy--but Ocarina is one of the most-torn-apart games out there, after SMW, Red/Blue, maybe SMB 1 or 3 or SM64. (Probably there's other games that have been more hacked, I just don't know much outside Nintendo first-party.)

Does anyone know of an exploit that gets the CPU to jump into any non-program RAM? There should be enough bytes in inventory RAM to write a small bootloader, but getting execution there in the first place might be impossible.

Of course, if I got Total Control, I would write in a new cutscene--with custom MOCAP'd animations and custom music--so we can finally put those rumors from 15 years ago to rest: we would show that, with an unmodified ROM and just with controller input, Link can get the Triforce in Ocarina of Time. ;D

Uhh... what? Is this some meme I'm not aware of?

It's an old 80's tune notable for the only lyric being a shrill, feminine "Hey!"
