The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time The PC port developed by Harbor Masters fans has been updated with a range of features, such as Linux compatibility, save modifier and 60FPS availability.

Updates came through a humorous “Ship Of Harkinian Direct” (as Ship Of Harkinian is the name of the port), with updates accessible via the development team’s Discord server. This version of the game was dubbed “Roy Alfa” (via VGC).

Other new features include save states, a collision viewer for those who want to see how in-game objects interact with each other, a cheat menu, audio and visual improvements, the ability to show items removed 3D renderings, the ability to change the text rendering speed, and the inclusion of the Majora’s Mask Bunny Hood, a handy tool that allows Link to move faster when equipped.

What might be most impressive is the huge amount of accessibility features, including audio descriptions and pointers to help judge depth.

The PC port was released in April and was created via reverse engineering of a version of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Harbor Masters has stated that those wishing to play this version of the game must own a legal stock ROM of the title.

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time was originally released in 1998 for the Nintendo 64 and was followed by a remake for the Nintendo 3DS in 2011. It met with universal acclaim upon release and is often considered one of the greatest games of all time, currently sitting as Metacritic’s highest. ranked game ever. The title is also available for Nintendo Switch Online plus Expansion Pack subscribers.

In other news, Former Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aimé discussed the possibility of a new F-zero title in a recent interview.

20 years later, ‘Ocarina of Time’ is still the greatest RPG ever made https://clay-wood-winds.com/20-years-later-ocarina-of-time-is-still-the-greatest-rpg-ever-made/ Tue, 10 May 2022 16:07:11 +0000 https://clay-wood-winds.com/20-years-later-ocarina-of-time-is-still-the-greatest-rpg-ever-made/ Originally developed as part of a technical demonstration of the console’s capabilities, the path from design to delivery was fraught with difficulties.

Originally developed as part of a technical demonstration of the console’s capabilities, the path from design to delivery was fraught with difficulties. The game was originally meant to work with the 64DD, but was eventually ported to a cartridge – the biggest game Nintendo has made so far. The size of the game was 32MB – which is roughly the size of a large image – and contained nearly 500 character animations. 120 people were attached to the development.

These numbers may seem trivial, even laughable, compared to the Hollywood-style numbers touted by “Red Dead Redemption 2” and “Skyrim,” but in 1998, it was groundbreaking. 20 years later, the ground is definitely upset. All RPGs owe a debt to “Ocarina of Time“. You can’t play a single RPG these days without there being some slight reference or acknowledgment to its legacy.

What’s interesting about “Ocarina of Time” compared to today’s RPGs is how it so clearly gives you control of the character, rather than creating the character. While there was the usual trivial name-selection part, the game made it clear that this was a narrative presented to you, rather than a story you would define. At the time, the choice mechanics were non-existent and the nature the game played in was basically on rails.

Again, this may sound contrary to what RPGs are these days, but that’s the real essence of it. It’s a role-playing game. You, the player, assume the role of Link and play through the story or game until its completion. It didn’t matter if you couldn’t influence saving the Deku Tree, or if you couldn’t see Link aging physically over the seven-year interval, none of that was. The story itself was so rich in its simplicity and so cleanly executed that the lack of choice seemed logical. It’s a story, and the story was told to you

The graphics, while having a slightly cartoonish bent, made sense. It was a fairy tale story and the idea of ​​having a hyperrealistic view of it would have been hideous. One need only look at ‘Breath Of The Wild’, which had the system power to do so, to know that it was an aesthetic choice over ‘Ocarina of Time’ as much as it was practical. The music too, with its lullaby rhythms and sweet melodies, fits perfectly with the visual designs.

The gameplay of Ocarina of Time was just as important as the graphics. Like in “Breath of the Wild,” there was a real sense of problem-solving as a game, and how ingenious solutions were not only allowed, but encouraged. The game seemed so big and so full of surprises that it seemed absolutely possible to think about getting out of a dungeon as much as you could get out of it.

That the story itself saw Link mature was no accident. That in itself felt like a parallel to the RPG genre, that it was time for players to adapt and move on to a new way of thinking – but still honoring what came before. The game dealt with the idea of ​​change, of death, of loss of innocence, of adolescence to adulthood – something that very few games recognised, let alone brought it to the fore. For a game played by teens and young teens, the resonance of the themes and motifs the game dealt with was not only sharp but poignant.

That the franchise has gone on and continues to be one of the most innovative in gaming is no surprise. “Ocarina of Time” was, and still is, the finest example of storytelling through interactive media.

The World Video Game Hall of Fame unveiled its latest group of inductees on Thursday: Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Ms. Pac-Man, Dance Dance Revolution and Sid Meier’s Civilization.

Ocarina of Time, which won multiple Game of the Year awards in 1998, was praised for its storytelling, sprawling 3D world, intricate puzzles, and combat mechanics. Andrew Borman, curator of digital games at Rochester, New York’s Strong National Museum of Play, home of the Hall of Fame, said video game developers today point to Ocarina as an influence.

Pac-Man spin-off Mrs. Pac-Man gave players more sophisticated mazes, smarter opponents, new challenges, and the first widely recognized female video game character, according to the hall of fame. “Ms. Pac-Man promoted and signaled the expansion of the game to all genders,” said Senior Archivist Julia Novakovic. The game marked a turning point in the “cultural conversation about the place of women in the arcade as well as in society at large,” she said.

Dance Dance Revolution helped lay the groundwork for other music games, like Guitar Hero and Rock Band, according to the Hall of Fame. “It really revolutionized the music game scene,” said video game curator Lindsey Kurano. “Music has been an integral part of human life since prehistoric times, so it’s no surprise that DDR enjoys a unique popularity that spans ages, genders, and regions.”

The Hall of Fame called Sid Meier’s Civilization “one of the most influential simulation and strategy games of all time“. It also won Computer Gaming World’s Best Video Game of All Time in 1996. The game offered players almost unlimited choices, which made every game different and unique.

Created in 2015The Global Video Game Hall of Fame recognizes “individual electronic games of all types — arcade, console, computer, handheld and mobile — that enjoy popularity over an extended period of time and have exerted an influence on the video game industry or on popular games culture and society at large,” its site states.

Doom, Pac-Man, Pong, Super Mario Bros., Tetris and World of Warcraft were the first games to be inducted.

The Gold Skulltula side quest in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time offers some nice rewards, but it only matters for collecting the first 50 tokens.

Collect Tokens from Gold Skulltulas in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is one of the biggest side quests in the game, but only half of them are worth finding. While the player will receive rewards for finding all 100, the reward for 50 tokens is the last to be earned. After this point, the side quest feels like a waste of time.

In Ocarina of time, there are 100 Golden Skulltulas scattered around the world of Hyrule. Each kill will provide Link with a Gold Skulltula token. A wealthy family who have been cursed due to their greed seek Link’s help, as their curse can only be broken if all 100 Golden Skulltulas are defeated. They offer rewards at certain stages, with the final one coming once Link has killed all of the Golden Skulltula in Hyrule. Naturally, curious players will naturally want to see what rewards are available.

Early Skulltulas rewards are pretty good. The adult wallet for 10 tokens allows Link to carry 200 rupees at a time rather than the starting 99, and the giant wallet for 30 tokens increases that limit to 500 rupees. For 20 tokens, the Nintendo 64’s Agony Stone will shake the controller to detect hidden objects, and the 3DS’ Agony Fragment will do the same with a musical chime. 40 tokens will grant the player Bombchus, which are situational, but still useful. However, 50 tokens will grant a piece of heart to increase Link’s life total. All of these freebies are well worth the effort required. Contrary to Ocarina of timeuseless ice arrows, all these prizes are very useful for Link’s journey.


The Piece of Heart is Skulltula’s last good reward in Ocarina Of Time


A Gold Skulltula spider hangs from the ceiling in Ocarina of Time.

However, after 50 tokens, the Gold Skulltula rewards drop badly. For one, there are no more rewards given for collecting Golden Skulltula Tokens until the player has gotten all 100. Upon returning to Skulltula’s House, the curse will be broken and the player will he rich man will offer Link a huge rupee, worth 200 rupees. . Additionally, Link can receive another Huge Rupee each time he revisits the house. 200 rupees is a lot, and huge rupees are very rare. However, the fact that the top prize for such a lengthy side quest is money that could be acquired in a number of other ways makes it easy to see how players might think that Ocarina of timeThe Skulltula hunt is disappointing.


There are several ways to make the Gold Skulltula side quest more satisfying. For one thing, there’s way too much of an unrewarded gap between 50 and 100 Skulltulas. Instead, handing out rewards for 20 Skulltulas would have been more reasonable. Also, the final reward is rather disappointing. Even though it’s basically infinite rupees, the player will still collect rupees at a steady rate during normal gameplay, so it doesn’t seem too impressive. Instead, a better (and rarer) reward would have been something like a full heart container or another item of equal value. This side quest required the player to explore the world and defeat 100 unique enemies, and it requires a significant time investment. However, unlike mastery Ocarina of timeLink’s problem without a sword, the hunt for the golden Skulltula is ultimately disappointing.


The Gold Skulltula side quest in Ocarina of time is actually quite rewarding for the first half. However, the rewards for killing more than 50 Golden Skulltulas are sadly mediocre at best. Although this is one of the biggest side quests in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Timeit’s probably best to leave the Gold Skulltula quest half done.

ROCHESTER, NY – More than 40 years after paving the way for female video game characters, Ms. Pac-Man was inducted into the World Video Game Hall of Fame on Thursday, alongside Dance Dance Revolution, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and The Civilization of Sid Meier.

The Hall of Fame annually considers electronic games of all types – arcade, console, computer, handheld and mobile. Inductees are recognized for their popularity and influence on the video game industry or pop culture over time.

The arcade game Ms. Pac-Man was released in 1981 as Midway’s follow-up to Pac-Man, which entered the room as part of the inaugural class in 2015. Pac-Man’s sequel reinvented the main character to recognize the woman from the original game. fans, depending on the room. After selling 125,000 machines in the first five years, it has become one of the best-selling arcade games of all time.

There was nothing inherently gendered about early video games, said Julia Novakovic, the room’s senior archivist. But “by delivering the first widely recognized female video game character,” she said, “Ms. Pac-Man represented a turning point in the cultural conversation about the place of women in the arcade, as well as in the society in general.

The Class of 2022 was chosen from a group of finalists that also included Assassin’s Creed, Candy Crush Saga, Minesweeper, NBA Jam, PaRappa the Rapper, Resident Evil, Rogue and Words with Friends. This is the eighth class to be inducted since the establishment of the World Video Game Hall of Fame at the Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York.

Konami’s Dance Dance Revolution, first seen in arcades in Japan in 1998, has been credited with helping pave the way for other music-centric games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The fast-paced game puts players on a dance floor with a screen in front to direct their movements.

“Music has been an integral part of human life since prehistoric times, so it’s no surprise that DDR enjoys unique popularity spanning ages, genders and regions,” said video game curator Lindsey Kurano. .

A home version of the game followed on Sony PlayStation in 1999.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, also first released in 1998, was released for the Nintendo 64 game console and defined what a 3D action video game could be, Hall of Fame officials have said. Famous. The award-winning game has sold over 7.6 million copies worldwide and continues to be recognized by some gamers and critics as one of the best video games ever made.

“Even today, developers around the world credit The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with influencing the way they make games,” said Andrew Borman, Curator of Digital Games. “The game’s sprawling 3D world, fluid combat, intricate puzzles, and time-shifting story combined to inspire players with a sense of wonder they’ve never forgotten.”

Sid Meier’s Civilization, released in 1991, has been recognized as an influential simulation and strategy game. The game, which challenged players to develop their own empires, launched a series of successor games, including the most recent Civilization: Beyond Earth and Civilization VI.

“The game’s addictive nature, which creator Sid Meier himself called the ‘one more turn’ quality, and its nearly limitless choices that prevented repetitive gameplay, earned Civilization Computer Gaming World recognition as the best game video game of all time in 1996,” said Jon-Paul Dyson, director of The Strong International Center for Electronic Game History. have engaged with the Civilization series for over a billion hours.”

Anyone can nominate a game for the World Video Game Hall of Fame. Final selections are made on the advice of journalists, academics, and others knowledgeable in the history of video games and their role in society.

Animal Crossing: New Horizons gives its players access to a wide variety of items that they can use in-game. Most of these items are utility items like the Stone Ax or the DIY Workbench, while while others are decorative objects like the street piano or the trophy case. However, the Ocarina is a unique item in New Horizons since players can obtain this item to play music on their island.

Here’s how players can get the Ocarina in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.


Steps to get the Ocarina in Animal Crossing: New Horizons

Unlike other items in New Horizons, the Ocarina does not require players to make much progress in the game before they can attempt to obtain it. In fact, players can get their hands on the Ocarina quite early in the game.

To do this, players must first visit Timmy and Tommy Nook at Resident Services. There they must buy the DIY for Beginners book, in which they will find the recipe for making the Ocarina. Once they get the recipe, players need to get five clays, which are the only item required to craft the Ocarina.

Players can get clay by hitting rocks with an axe. They should also keep in mind that rocks are a source of many different items, ranging from iron nuggets to clay. Therefore, they may have to try their luck on a number of rocks before they can get the required amount of clay.

Once players have five clays in hand, they can go ahead and craft the Ocarina using the DIY recipe they got from the book. Once crafted, players can see the Ocarina in their inventory. This is also where they can get their hands on it.

play the ocarina

To use the Ocarina, players must select the item in their inventory and keep it. Once the object is in his hands, the player can play the instrument by pressing the “a” button.

While the notes on the instrument are randomized, players can control whether they want to play longer or shorter notes by holding down the “a” button for longer or shorter periods, respectively.

The Ocarina doesn’t really serve any real purpose in the game; therefore, it’s one of those items that players make just for fun.

Wrestlemania 38 had something for everyone, including a subtle reference to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. On Saturday, Cody Rhodes returned to WWE after a 6-year absence, including 3 years to found rival company AEW. Rhodes returned to a hero’s welcome, taking on Seth Rollins in one of the best matches of the weekend. During the opening minutes of the match, the WWE commentator snuck in a few lines of dialogue from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, which also served to reference Rhodes’ past with the company. “Time passing is always cruel and one thing that doesn’t change over time is just a memory of youth,” Graves said. This is a paraphrase of a dialogue Sheik said to Link when Link returned to his old home in Kokiri Forest. Given that Ocarina of time is Rhodes’ favorite The Legend of Zelda game, the line was a nice nod to Rhodes and the franchise.

Rhodes is a long time The Legend of Zelda fan and even has the Triforce tattooed on one finger. Rhodes often wore boots with the Triforce on them in his in-ring debut and even appeared in a Nintendo segment designed to celebrate the franchise’s 25th anniversary. Back in 2019, Rhodes spoke to ComicBook.com about the most recent The Legend of Zelda Game breath of the wild as well as its upcoming sequel. “I think breath of the wild was amazing,” Rhodes said. “The only negative I’ve seen people might have is maybe they wanted a bit more story or it might even be positive, it was so good they wanted to know more. But now we follow the same Link, and Zelda, and through Hyrule. The trailer looked pretty awful, so I’m excited for that.”

Now that Rhodes is back, it’s more than likely we’ll get a few more. The Legend of Zelda WWE references. Rhodes is signed to a multi-year contract with WWE and will almost certainly be one of the company’s top stars during his current tenure.

Finally discovering the missing “Link”.

I’I’ve been a casual gamer since high school but i never had time to play any of the originals The Legend of Zelda Games. My first experience with the beloved series was pretty pitiful, actually.

i tried to play Twilight Princess on the Wii but froze at the sight of a bulblin, a goblin-like creature whose sole purpose is to knock you out with a club. It took me a few months to work up the courage to give simple battle another chance. I ended up warming up for the game but never finished it. Years later, however, I loved the most recent and critically acclaimed open-world game in the franchise, breath of the wild.

Every time I mention how much I love the story and gameplay of breath of the wildit is often followed by “Did you play Ocarina of time?!”

Well no. Although he was born the same year, the fifth game of the Zelda series came out (1998), I never laid eyes on what is considered the best Zelda game – much to the chagrin of other players.

Their astonishment is reinforced by the fact that Ocarina also tells the origin story of Link, the bravest warrior in Hyrule Kingdom, and the character that players take on when playing the Zelda series. Before Ocarina of timefans had little knowledge of the history of Hyrule, its princess Zelda, and the story’s hero, Link.

Ocarina of time has been re-released since the Nintendo GameCube era, with versions compatible with almost all Nintendo consoles. So I decided to dive into the origins of Link and Hyrule.

NOTNormally, I consume video games through my gaming laptop or Nintendo Switch. Switching from a Switch to a 3DS handheld device posed a few challenges, the biggest being the camera controls. I was spoiled with the Switch having left and right control sticks – the left for navigating the character and the right for the camera view. It is a perfect design for modern video games.

But the camera in Ocarina of time East terrible. Understanding automatic camera angles and aiming became my real first quest. But once I got past those horrible mechanics, I couldn’t put the game down.

A fairy ocarina – a vital tool in the game – is a magical instrument that opens hidden passages, charms villagers and plays soft music. To defeat the Evil King, Link (meaning you, the player) uses the Fairy Ocarina to collect three Spirit Stones from different regions of Hyrule and the much more powerful Ocarina of Time.

Simple enough, right? Psycho! There’s a whole other piece to the story, but you can play on your own to find out.

Despite the dated graphics and lack of guidance, exploring a simpler map of Hyrule compared to breath of the wild was refreshing. I was able to focus on the story and the characters, which is one of my favorite things about the franchise.

I loved playing through this game – the plot twists and gameplay – despite the terrible camera. It was fun to finally be able to enjoy such a monumental game in The Legend of Zelda franchise history. I finally understand what Ocarina the hype is all about – it was the missing link to my favorite video game fandom.

I can’t wait to download the next chapter of the Zelda series, Majora’s Mask, and keep playing. ♦

You won’t need to use the Switch Virtual Console (or a good emulator) to get the most out of Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on modern equipment. VGC reports that Harbor Masters fans have developed a native PC port (available on Discord) that supports many cutting-edge features, including HD (and ultra-wide) graphics, modding, keyboard input, and even Switch style gyro aiming. You could put a Steam Deck to good use in your latest round of gaming nostalgia, to put it another way.

And yes, Harbor Masters claims he can avoid Nintendo’s legal team. the Ocarina of time The PC port revolves around Ship of Harkinian, a tool that turns a user-supplied (and hopefully legal) Nintendo 64 ROM for the game into a usable program. As the software does not include any content from Nintendo, the developer cannot sue Harbor Masters for copyright infringement.

Conversion should also improve. The creators are working on 60fps graphics, two-stick controls, improved text-to-speech models, and higher resolution texture packs. Mac and Linux support is also said to be in the works, as is a PC adaptation of Majora’s Mask.

Whether or not this port is legally safe, it reflects fans’ determination to preserve Ocarina of time and other Nintendo classics without relying on official emulation or reissues. Enthusiasts wore Super Mario 64 in 2019, for example. While that job isn’t as vital as it once was with the existence of solutions like Virtual Console, it does give gamers more control over where and how they play titles from their childhoods.
