In 2002 and 2003, The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask were re-released on Gamecube using a Nintendo 64 emulator on the disc. Unfortunately there were some issues as a result of the rushed emulator, but the roms themselves included a few welcome changes to Majora's Mask and Ocarina of Time Master Quest included remixed dungeons for a new challenge. For Majora's Mask this includes sounds that were missing from other releases as a result of glitches and restored Zora Link boomerang physics, and various corrections to the text. The changes to Ocarina of Time are mostly bug fix related and the dungeon changes for Master Quest.
The goal of my patches are to revert the emulation/console related changes (changes that were required for the Gamecube console, such as button assignments and colors), various censorship, overlooked region corrections, and bug fixes. Only 3 of my 13 patches have been released on Romhacking.net so far:The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask - Gamecube to N64 (USA, Europe, Japan)
But you can find the rest of them in the original progress thread from the Everdrive 64 forums, here:Legend of Zelda OoT/MQ & MM - Gamecube to N64 patches (with fixes/decensorship)
Currently I'm working on completing the Japanese patch for the Majora's Mask GC rom but I'm not familiar enough with Japanese to be able to distinguish what text change is a correction or emulation related text change. Specifically, the other languages make subtle changes to the text to change references to "pressing" the C buttons to "tilting"/"using" the C stick on the Gamecube controller. Since the original Japanese release didn't include several new text references to saving at the Owl Statues or hints that were added in the international releases, it's not as simple as it was to port the original text for English, German, French, and Spanish.
Are there any Japanese translators available who can help me go through the text and correct as needed? So far I've only changed the references from "L" to "Z" (changing string length is not a problem, the offset table is just compressed in the rom)http://www.mediafire.com/download/kxic0xhslkbf956/MMgcJ-n64.zip
