Zelda 3: Goddess of Wisdom 3.1 glitch?
« on: March 15, 2019, 02:07:03 pm »
Dear all,

I got the version 3.1 of the GOW patch up and running, but I can't seem to make progress on the guardhouse. There seems to be a missing statue that was previously used to depress a switch underneath the pot in the upper left hand corner of the room (upper left in the screens caps shown below)

A user on reddit shared the same problem with no responses (ref: https://www.reddit.com/r/zelda/comments/a72v93/zelda_gow_bug_or_me_being_dumb/)

This image belongs to the OP of the aforementioned reddit post



Any thoughts for those of you familiar with the hack?

I believe version 1.21 is the latest version and anything after that is bogus. https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3449/

OP appears to be using https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/662/

Which hasn't been updated since October of 2018. As stated above, https://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3449/ is a continuation of the project.

1.21 of the Addendum version has a different problem I just found out. In that version, the torch on the left is one space to the left of where it should be. It's impossible to get the statue out.

Also, 3.1 of the original version has another problem. The guardhouse treasure box that is supposed to give you the big key, gives you a power glove instead.

Both versions on romhacking.net are broken and it is impossible to get past the first dungeon with either one.

Maybe these screens will help you rookie.
There are some tricks: in 3.1 a trick chair, which has a switch under it (no statue needed). Trick table with the key (needs gloves), and with 1.21 a one-hand-pull of the statue trick. You can even get the statue out in 1.21 in two different ways. There is also a patch thing. If you patch it wrong, you will have a bugged rom.
