Is this patch compatible with the rom from the No-Intro set? I'm asking hence the checksum is different (both the iNES mapper versions 1 & 2).

Not quite sure tbh. I'm not sure if the No-Intro set has both versions of Zelda 1 or not.
Depends on whether that one is the PRG0 or PRG1 version of Zelda 1.
Both are different, and this hack only works for the PRG0 version.

Hey, I was able to make it work on FCEUmm emulator with no problem.
But no matter what I try, I wasnt able to make the patched ROM work on my new 3ds xl by converting it to .CIA.
I always get a gray infinite screen on the 3ds Virtual console.
Is there a way to properly patching it to make it work?.
Ive successfully patched snes and gba ROMs before and they work fine as .CIA on my 3ds.

There are two datted:
Legend of Zelda, The (USA)
Legend of Zelda, The (USA) (Rev 1)

I guess the one without any reference to Rev # is PRG0 and Rev 1 is the PRG1 version.

Files with iNES header v1 have these SHA1 checksums:
Legend of Zelda, The (USA) dab79c84934f9aa5db4e7dad390e5d0c12443fa2
Legend of Zelda, The (USA) (Rev 1) 3701381a82fc7d52b2dd3e8892047b30a114ab43

Files with iNES header v2 have these SHA1 checksums:
Legend of Zelda, The (USA) 799459548f9636dd263200da494f04058f5540e2
Legend of Zelda, The (USA) (Rev 1) 4671517d72d09799403f6c672cd2b395933e926e

I guess the header doesn't bother much when patching as it doesn't touch this part of the file.

Update: Ok, I've just tried out both MMC1 & MMC5 patches on bot iNES header versions and they do work fine. :thumbsup:

Rev 1 versions have garbled title screen so I guess they're the aforementioned PRG1 ones.

Hi, first of all, this is an amazing hack.
I'm using it for my first playthrough and I'm loving it.

I did notice one bug after getting stuck and using a walkthrough.
In the 7th dungeon where the old man is supposed to say "THERE’S A SECRET IN THE TIP OF THE NOSE", he instead says "SPECTACLE ROCK IS A GATEWAY TO DEATH", which is apparently supposed to be said in the 8th dungeon.

7th dungeon from guide:


My screenshot:


I am using the 1.01 MMC5 patch on Nestopia.
