Just what was needed

Reviewed By: lastdual on 02 Aug 2017

Going back to Link’s Awakening DX, small annoyances like the incessant low-life beeping and needless pop-up text whenever you accidentally brush against a rock (prior to obtaining the bracelet) would mar an otherwise stellar game. This excellent hack gets rid of those hitches, plus the author was kind enough to make it compatible with the VWF hack. Simply put, this is the best way to replay the game.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
