Hey guys, the name's Cralex and I’m working on my very first hack. Link's Awakening - GirlType is a simple hack that replaces Link with a female protagonist that I'm working on in preparation for a much larger hack later. In the tradition of the original game, the script changes should be fairly minimal and consistent what something that Nintendo might have produced. This Hack is still a work-in-progress.
This Hack is made with LALE and is, therefore, for the clean US 1.2 only.
0.1 Easy changes made
0.2 Some changes requiring script revisions are made.
0.3 More of the above. (Current)
0.5 First version of script changes done.
1.0 In-game sprite changes done.
1.5 Pre-photo cutscene sprite changes done. (Help or advice wanted!)
2.0 Photos and/or Intro & Ending Artwork changed. (Help or advice wanted!)
The hack is still an early work in progress and, therefore, doesn’t have any graphics changes yet. (What’s the best utility or guide for this?) Also, I’m looking for the community’s advice with some of the text:
Crazy Tracy- I had her call the player “honey” instead of “big guy,” but I’m not sure if there’s something better I could use instead.
Places where the character is called “runt,” “buffoon,” “rat,” or “fool.”
Places where Marin asks the player not to forget her. (Most of her lines aren’t touched yet. I want to get a “good friend” vibe going without it being creepy or cheesy).
The goat- I changed “gentlemen” to “nice girl,” which works well enough as a compliment but not for when you refuse her favor. (I thought you were a nice girl.)
