Ocarina of Time REDUX

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

Description:

This hack aims at improving the original experience of Ocarina of Time by adding some QoL improvements by applying the ASM patches provided by the Ocarina of Time Randomizer project by Roman971 and its contributors. (NOTE: For a full list of the Credits per-dev, please check the ReadMe)

NB: Use an Ocarina of Time US 1.0 ROM for patching.

Main Features:

  • Text speed now goes 3 times or 2 times as fast as the original (Download includes both patches).
  • Collecting Gold Skulltulla Tokens no longer freezes the player but allows it to continue moving. This is similar to what happens in Majora’s Mask spider houses.
  • D-PAD can be used to quickly access ocarina and iron/hover boots.
  • Rupee color of the rupee count indicator now changes in color to reflect the wallet upgrade possessed.
  • Stone of Agony now works even without rumble. An icon will appear over the rupee count when in proximity of a hidden grotto.
  • File select screen now displays all collected items instead of simply showing hearts and medallions/stones.
  • Increased speed of block pushing.
  • Farore’s Wind does not get dispelled through time travel and can be used independently by child and adult Link.
  • The bunny hood now works like in Majora’s Mask boosting movement speed when worn.
  • Dampe’s digging tour prize is guaranteed first try instead of random. Additionally he can dig anywhere instead of only on dirt patches.
  • Bombchu Bowling prizes now appear in fixed order instead of random (Rotation being: piece of heart, purple rupee, bomb bag capacity upgrade, bombs).
  • Fishing made easier by removing most RNG and guaranteeing biting. Additionally a win-requirements big fish is added by himself in the top-left region of the pond.
  • Biggoron has you wait 2 days instead of 3 to forge the Biggoron Sword.
  • Default Z-targeting is automatically set to HOLD by default.
  • Burning Kakariko cutscene now starts by entering Kakariko from any entrance instead of only the main one.
  • Song of Storms cooldown is removed, additionally it can be used in every ambient.
  • Lab diving heart piece can now be obtained at all times.
  • Warp songs and Farore’s Wind can now be used inside Gerudo Training Grounds and Ganon’s Castle.
  • All other vanilla features (Rewards, Cutscenes and Animations) are retained.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • Database match: Legend of Zelda, The - Ocarina of Time (USA)
  • Database: No-Intro: Nintendo 64 (v. 20180814-043336)
  • File/ROM SHA-1: AD69C91157F6705E8AB06C79FE08AAD47BB57BA7
  • File/ROM CRC32: CD16C529

Amazing accomplishment. Master Quest next? :D

Reviewed By: PurePixels on 06 Jun 2020

I’m a big fan of “redux” style quality-of-life hacks. The creators of the Ocarina of Time randomizer with its many conveniences once cruelly shot down the idea of applying the improvements to the vanilla game, so it’s amazing that others stepped in. About the hack itself, not much needs to be said. Just read the list of changes and enjoy a better N64 Zelda. The icing on the cake, of course would be to apply these improvements to OoT Master Quest. Unless the existing patch already works on it? Time to try it out.
