A Link to the Past Randomized

Post by Daos » Wed Aug 24, 2016 4:54 pm

So has anyone else ever heard of this? It's a ROM hack of Zelda 3 that randomizes the items you find. It's pretty fun so far as I was lucky enough to find the bow in Hyrule Castle Dungeon and just recently found the Moon Stone in a random cave. Kind of breaks up the usual sequence of events.

My initial reaction was "what if all of the freely accessible chests are heart pieces and bottles", but it sounds like it controls for that. Neat idea.

This is the most complex Binding of Isaac mod I've seen yet.

So I am now trying to figure out where to go next without the Power Glove. I do have the Moon Pearl and the Magic Mirror both so I COULD go to the Dark World and search around there but I can't remember if there were any entrances to the Dark World that did not also require the Power Gloves to either open or get to.

This looks pretty rad. Maybe I should to a run sometime.

Oh, man, I'd play this. Can you do specific RNG seeds so you can race the same randomized with someone else?

if we can randomize RNG seeds, we must organize a VGF race.

Just visited the page, turns out you can do the same RNG seed. Who would be up for this?

I'd be interested. I just finished trying to get through a randomized map. Hit a wall where there aren't any items I can get which will further my progression (yes, I mean all of them). Got the power glove, titan mitt and pegasus boots all early on which was cool.

According to the FAQ you can actually use the Cape if you have it to get past the barrier at Hyrule Castle if you don't have the Master Sword.

Ah! Thanks for the tip, I was unaware. I do have the cape, used it to defeat Blind with little effort despite low-level everything.

Do we all have streaming software/capabilities?

I'll have to do a run or two so I can get used to playing LttP with an XBox controller.

Reminds me of OoT's Beta Quest, where loading zones are shuffled and seeds are generated by filename.

I do indeed have the ability to stream. Only dates I won't be able to are on the 29th - 31st, and September 6th.

Wait, are we allowed to post about rom hacks and other extralegal games on VGF?

I've never streamed before, but I could give it a shot.
