In this thread, you should release it. No need for 3 or 4 different threads. Post several screenshots showing what youve modified in the game. Everyone loves to see screenshots, and if there are none, people are less likely to even bother to download it (even if it turns out to be the best rom hack ever. ).

Release it in IPS patch form, and link to it directly from here, instead of a site where it's located. It just makes things easier for everyone, not having to search through a linked site, when the patch itself could have been linked just as easily.

Ok, enough rambling, I can't wait to try your hack out, it sounds as if you put a lot of time and effort into it, and a good zelda game is just what I need right about now (or whenever you see fit to release it).

Ok!

I'd rather see you'd make a website first with some additional info so people would have a place to check once in a while for updates.

If making a website for it will delay the release by even a week, just release the damn thing and let us play! :-)

Indeed, a website should come after release. And while this thread is here, you might as well post some screenshots here, while we wait for you to fix up everything

He's probably waiting for his poll to not be so close... One of those options has to pull ahead....eventually....

No, he's probably just not finished yet. Why on earth would he stall or 'wait until the poll is not so close'?

OK, it looks like most of u want it just released, and a website made in the early future.

And, im not stalling, I just wanted to know how u guys would like it released. A couple of bugs have been found in the final beta, so I have to fix them before I release. U guys need to learn some patience. I spent like 100+ hours on this, and people like MajinBlueDragon just mock. I mean, screw u, i dont have to release, im doing this board a favor by releaseing it. Not to mention that this will be the first one to be released ever.

A little support would be nice.

BTW: THX Chickenlump, this board needs more people like u.

My "waiting untill the poll is not so close" post was an attempt at humor. Alot of my humor isn't funny though. (hey, as long as I'm laughing..right? )

Good luck witht he bugs, and don't take everything here too seriously. Alot of it is just rough humor, and constructive critisism. Well...that and perhaps were all rabid for a good Zelda Romhack....tends to mess with peoples minds.... *twitch twitch*

1) Majin was not mocking. He was making a guess as to why you hadn't replied in a while.

2) Screw us, you don't have to release? No you don't. And frankly, we'd all survive if you didn't But you got us interested in the hack and then you didn't respond for a while. And we lost some interest. It happens, get over it.

3) You're not doing the board a favor either. Mostly because I don't see how you're doing us said favor.


Just chill out. Don't be so defensive. We're just waiting.

ok, im sry, Im just kinda annoyed at Majin for his other pointless posts in threads where I was asking for help. I am fixing up the last of the errors now, so look for a release hopefully later tonight. Also, does anyone know a place that I can use as a server?

Edit: I meant Screw Majin btw, i like the rest of u guys.

Well, if you are gonna release it release it, if you're going to fix it up then release, then do that. But no matter what, its going to be released eventually.

When that is though is up to you. Personally, Id like it in the near future.... but thats just me.

I am actually working on the last 2 problems right now, then the plan was to release it tonight, but this damn chest game got corrupted before, and I didnt realize it, so I got to figure out how to fix it, or there isnt the correct # of hearts. Bare with me, there is so little left to do. U guys just have to realize that the amount of effort to make it perfect isnt that much more considering how much I already put into it.

It's good to hear that you really put alot into it. The best hacks are those that you really put your heart and soul into, take your time with, and mold it like a work of art. If your going to do something, do it right, and do it for yourself.
Even if nobody hails it as the greatest hack ever, you get the distinguished honor of it being one of the only complete Zelda 3 hacks available. Might I bother you by asking the official name of your hack? Or would you rather wait untill it's release?

I'd be really really interested in seeing some screenshots of this. Zelda3's a great game. I was hacking it at one point, but using HM became ultimately tedious

Thats actually one of the things that I need to do. I would have probably forgotten to make one if u hadnt said anything.

I need help with the name, I have a couple of ideas, but i would definitly like some input on this.


Also, an update, because of the eastern time zone, I have decided to add a couple of things, and release it tomorrow morning.

Thx.
