Zelda3 HP hack

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

Description:

These patches were designed to help rookies who have problems with Zelda3 and would like to start it with HP upgrades. There are 5 parameters: start with 10 heart containers, start with 20 heart containers, start with Armor-3, fire sword, new “super” sword. There are 11 variants of above, but it is also possible to combine singular paramenters manually, by multi applying more (non-conflicting) IPS patches to one ROM.

It is also possible to apply these HP upgrades to any Zelda3 hack (as long as the file has no header! and is in a lorom format). Since the most difficult Z3 hack up to date is Parallel Worlds, it must be noted, that this hack has a header by default, so it must be opened with Tush program (included) to remove the header before patching. However Parallel Remodel and Goddess of Wisdom have no header by default.

More heart containers HP hack was essentially designed for PW and PR, while the armor and sword upgrades for GoW (because of complaints on armor and sword being to weak in this game).

Note: if you exceed the heart-container maximum, it will go to NOP (no operation), the same with Armor or sword (if you have Armor3, opening a chest with Armor2 does nothing).

Because of these HP upgrades all Zelda3 games are now available for rookies and beginners.
