Title: The Legend of Zelda: Ganon's Deception Bugfixed
Post by: Darklink7884 on October 25, 2014, 05:24:20 pm
The Legend of Zelda: Ganon's Deception is a hack made by an unknown author roughly 10 years ago. In many areas of the overworld, the player will encounter enemies not normally seen above ground, such as Wizzrobes.

Unfortunately, this game was unfinished during it's initial release. I played through the whole game, in and out, and was surprised to discover that Level-5 was not accessable, let alone untouched. The same thing goes for Level-8 and the 2nd Quest. I am starting a project to redo all or part of the dungeons and the overworld. Some help would be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE 6/25/2015: The 1st Quest has been finished. Level-5, Level-8, and Level-9 have all been redone with new puzzles, re-arranged items, etc. Some overworld screens have also been modified for better accessibility.

Should any bugs arise, please let me know and I'll get to it right away.

I think I also tried to finish the game a few years ago, and a dungeon seemed to have an illogical layout where Link could get stuck in a wall after the transition between screens, or something similar. This made the game unfinishable...

Nice initiative, Dark Link. I can only presume that the dungeons beyond the fatal bug were also hacked and completed. Or were they left to their original state? If it's the former, then maybe the hack was finished, but only had fatal bugs that prevented the players to progress at some point...

I can help with the technical stuff or ROM offsets. I made an editor for the game, so I know the ROM quite well...

To upload files, try Ze Bucket (http://www.bwass.org/bucket/), it's simpler...

I fixed the broken link. Feel free to download it, and let me know if it needs improvement. Please keep in mind that only the 1st Quest has been finished, and I will start work on the 2nd Quest at a later date.

The last two dungeons (Level-8 and Level-9) were left in their original state, as was the 2nd Quest. Level-5 and Level-7 were both incomplete and inaccessible when this hack first came out. The overworld also had restricted accessibility.

A new version of Ganon's Deception is available.

Sorry for the late post. Anyway, I decided to work on Ganon's Deception one last time. The 2nd Quest dungeons were almost completely redone. The overworld was further modified, some caves were switched around, and secret money amounts offered by Moblins were increased from 45 to 50 and from 120 to 150. Prices have been lowered on some items (i.e. Blue Candle now costs 50 rupees, Fish for 40 rupees, and Slingshot Bullets for 50 rupees). There are three bomb upgrades available in both quests, so the player can carry a maximum of 20 bombs.

Should any unintended bugs arise, please let me know, and I will fix them ASAP.

Scratchpad is strictly for the purpose of submitting files to the database. I approved the submission so the file can be downloaded from the hack page.

You could always open it up in a level editor to find it.

I know it's a detail, but I don't think this project should be called a "bug fix" anymore. It's more like the redesign of an unfinished project. This also means the final result should replace the old submission. I'm also aware that the rules probably were different in 2005, so don't break a sweat either on that matter...
