    The Patching Information section claimed that the patch requires a headered rom. This was definitely a mistake, so I changed it. I added a header to the original rom and the patch produced a buggy uncensored sprite with stray pixels floating around the main character. Patching a clean headerless rom restored the uncensored sprite without any graphical errors, as shown in the screenshots. Plus, the readme itself doesn't say anything about a header, which further proves the uploader made a mistake when filling in the patching details.

The Legend Of Zelda (Chunky Edition)

Hack of The Legend of Zelda

Description:

Tired of staring at the same-old same-old graphics for 35 years? Sick of games with too much detail? Well, has the person writing this got news for you.

Presenting: The Legend Of Zelda (Chunky Edition), a complete graphics hack that decreases graphical fidelity by almost 100%! Why? Because Zero Meaning could. No other reason (or meaning) is necessary.

This hack is for:

• People who want to experience Zelda in a new way.

• Folk who enjoy cute, chunky art styles.

• Those whose blurry CRTs have almost given up the ghost.

• Pathetic man-children who have tantrums about too much detail in their games.

The base game has been left unchanged. For all intents and purposes, it’s still the same Zelda you know and love with a new (thicker) coat of paint. So don’t worry, you can still block clip (probably). Oh, and Link’s Blue Ring colour has been changed because the original was just ghastly.

Also included is an alternate .IPS with no dungeon floor tiles and reduced detail sand.

Happy adventuring!
