Zelda II overworld utility
« on: January 10, 2022, 01:21:24 pm »
Hi guys, I’m working on another Zelda II hack and had a question about Njosro s overworld utility program. In Zelda 2 the northern and southern areas of both Eastern and western hyrule have forced enemy encounters that are different as you progress into different sections of the game. Grass or field in north western hyrule is much different then eastern or southern areas.
My north palace is in the lower section of western hyrule but the enemies in the forced encounters there are much harder then the traditional
Starting point. Although I plan to make the game
Harder then the originall I don’t want this to be a turn off for some players.
Can these encounters be edited in that tool, or another utility on the site?
I’m new at this and really have to stick to the untilites to make games as I’m not great with computers and absolute horrible at writing code  :-\
Any help would be appreciated.

Ok Impala!

You can edit the encounters with Z2Edit. Download it here: https://github.com/cfrantz/z2edit/releases

Go to Overworld and then choose "encounters". Voilá!  :)

Z2Edit has a lot of other nice features. I used it a lot for Zelda II - Amida's Curse. So I'm sure it will be helpful in your hacking journey. Have fun!

NJOSRO also has a side view editor to handle the encounters. https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1300/
