Will there ever be an Ocarina of Time "Total Control" hack?
« 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

No autoplay renditions of Art of Noise's Close (To the Edit)?

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!"
