Quality of Life Improvements

Hack of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX

Description:

This simple “Quality of Life” hack changes only three things in the original Zelda - Link’s Awakening DX.

Changes:

  • No more text when you touch certain objects. Rocks, cracked rocks, pots, ice blocks, etc.
  • Guardian Acorns and Pieces of Power are quick pickups. No more long text interrupting game play.
  • No more low health beeping.

Optional:

  • If you steal an item from the shop, you aren’t renamed to ‘THIEF’ and the death counter isn’t increased when the shopkeeper kills you.

Optional:

  • Compatible with toruzz’s VWF hack. Check the Readme file for patching instructions.

Version 1.1 - Added an optional compatibility patch for toruzz’s VWF hack.

Version 1.2 - Added an optional patch to remove punishment for obtaining the ‘THIEF’ photo from the shop.

Small Improvements Make a World of Difference!

Reviewed By: delta7890 on 02 Aug 2017

I simply adore little fixes like these. Link’s Awakening is a favorite of mine and now it’s been made all the better by getting rid of the most annoying facets of the game. No longer will I have to actively avoid picking up Pieces of Power or touching a crystal.

Highly recommended.
