I also haven't gotten around to finishing the monologues yet, so a chunk of the story is left unexplained. I'll fill in the gaps here.

The game is set three years after the "Rockvan wars," where Hyrule was invaded by a country called Rockvan. Rockvan ends up seizing most of Hyrule and razing Hyrule Castle. It was discovered that Rockvan supplies and troops have been arriving in Hyrule via a magic teleporter, the Gargann. 7 magicians are called on to place a seal on Hyrule to block the Gargann's abilities. Without supplies, Rockvan troops pull out. Three years later, Prince Samora is in power, and the seven sealists have vanished. Zelda is the only one left. The player is a captain in the Hylian army, and receives a message from Zelda. And so the story unwinds.

I've checked it from the insides of Hyrule Magic and so far some areas reminds me of Dark Prophecy, Tower of The Triforce (before I started editing it) and Gates of Darkness (and old hack I never got around to finish).. I'll give this a good try when I get more time tonight or tommorow.. Any idea how many dungeons are done because from the look of the overworlds everything seems in place.

I haven't played any of those, although I have played Shards of Might and Parallel Worlds. Everything in the overworld is mostly in place, large chunks of the monologue are done. The only incomplete things are the second and third dark world levels and the crypt, a hidden level placed under the grave in the area west of your house. I don't recommend entering it until I do complete it. The dungeon gives Byrna as a reward, but requires a lot of patience (and hearts) to do, plus you can't leave since the main objective of the place is to unlock the door out.

Sorry its taking so long to get the next update ready. I've been a little busy with Christmas and hav just needed to kick back and relax a bit. The next update will be fairly large though. I'm finishing the Captain's sprites off, I've modified a number of enemies, I've banged my head into my desk repeatedly over a number of unexpected glitches (eg, a number of AI changes, even though I've gone nowhere near that sstuff) though I have altered a few so I can use them. I've modified the dark world dungeons' interiors to reflect Rockvanian architecture, I've done more work on the Crypt and the incomplete Runoff Channels dungeons, and I've done a crapload of work on the monologue. I've started preparing new final boss sprites (I'm keeping these under wraps for now) I've modified a number of things using YY-CHR, but due to an unfortunate mistake on my behalf, I won't be able to insert my new stuff into this game. The two remaining medallions can now be found and used, and the Mirror shield is nearly ready. The third sword is nearly redy to be placed, though it'll be a pain to acquire. Rockvan Magicians are nearly ready to go in as an enemy, and Rockvan bowmen will soon be armed with crossbows. Yeah, expect a ton of stuff and a few fixes here and there.

They didn't do this with just a hex editor, Marti. Do try to think before you post.

Okay,I downloaded the hack because I was bored,and I have to say,this hack needs some work.


One major glitch was that I could access this portal,and...

It sent me to what I assume is a future dungeon,and there is no way out.

The graphics here are glitched.

And you can't enter these caves,also,I looked everywhere,and couldn't find a way into the fortress,how do you get in there?

It took me awhile to find it but there is a bush with a secret hole underneath that leads to the fortress. I think it's pretty close to your house.


I have noticed a few errors with this hack as well, including the ones Chaos mentioned.

One thing is that the first dark world level doesn't seem possible. I have looked EVERYWHERE and I cannot figure out how to beat it. I looked at the level in Hyrule Magic and I still couldn't find any possible way to beat it. I had to cheat to beat it.

The secret crypt with the Cane of Byrna in a chest does not require a big key to open. I just waltzed right in and took it.

In the Ganon's Tower-ish level (The one with Ganon's music playing) There is a room where you have to send a bomb down a conveyor belt to kill a jellyfish and obtain a key. The belt is too long, however, and the bomb doesn't reach the jellyfish no matter how fast you are.

The most interesting thing happened when I was in the boat level in the dark world. I saw a chest sitting out in the open, opened it, got the map, it called me a "f***ing hacker", and crashed my game. From the looks of the text, it seems you meant to take out all of the maps in the game but you accidentally left that one in.

However, this hack is pretty awesome for what you have so far. The water level in the light world and the boat level in the dark world were purely awesome. Great designs. There are a few more levels I just can't seem to find though.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll give you a hint for the first dark world level:
Not everything is as it appears. Especially the arrowed floors.

The big key door in the crypt was meant to do that. I wanted people to go hunting through the maze of death on the bottom floor for the key for a while before realizing it shares Fort Ranger's.

In the Ganon's tower level (The Seige Tower), you need to think about that. You do have something else you can use to kill the biri that doesn't include medallions.

The chest with the map is my fault. I'll hunt through it and remove it for the next update, which should be ready in a day or two. (Currently Febuary 5th.)

The glitched graphics in the desert I have known about for a while. I just never really bothered to fix them yet. Don't know why, I'm just lazy.

I plan on using those caves that don't work, or at least one of them. I'll probably remove the other.

That portal was a debug thing I was using so I could move freely between worlds.

If you can't find some dungeons, just go hunting. Rockvan doesn't have enemies (yet) so just go hunting.

Trust me, my new water dungeon in the second world, the Floodgates, will be just as epic as the ship and the first water dungeon. Trust me on that.

You said the Cane of Byrna was in an unlocked chest. I know I'm making this assumption based on the original, but the Cane of Byrna was in an unlocked chest and the Cane of Somaria was the one in the locked chest (Misery Mire). I take it this was changed?

Technically, both canes are both in large chests. Byrna happens to be in a chest you already have the key for.

If you're still looking for the hole, search the around the area below your house in the southeast corner.

I have also updated the file. HURRAY!

So I just have to redownload it and patch it to my already patched rom?And also,I found one bush that looked special,but I think you might have a bug.

I checked this bush,but didn't see anything.Is that where the hole is?

No, that's not where the hole is. This probably doesn't help very much, but I remember it was in a solitary bush near a couple of trees.

So Torin, what have you changed in this latest release?

The bush you want is directly north of that pit. I really should have made the guards point it out better.

I don't know if patching it to an already patched copy works. I believe it should, though.

As for changes, they're all in the readme. I copy them here, though.

Sprites and Graphics-
-Finished Link's Graphics
-Edited the Rockvan soldier's shield to look more realistic.
-Added RK soldiers to replace Dark World cows.
-New Rockvan dungeon walls!
-Rockvan crossbowman now carries crossbow (though its hard to tell)
-Added Garo (currently they aren't enemies)
-New pendant designs.

Overworld-
-Moved Rebel HQ
-Removed cave near witch's hut.

Dungeons-
-Fixed a glitch in my first dungeon, unfortunately by removing the Armos knights as the boss, as the shake on the last one went out of control
-Finished Rockvan floodgates level
-More work on the Crypt
-More work on the Vault (I am aware of an unfinished room near the big chest)
-Modified Sloop's cargo holds a bit.

Other-
-Script changes. Lots of script changes.

The readme in the link looks exactly the same,are you sure you updated it?Also,maybe you should post this on romhacking.net also,then more people would try it.Anyway,this hack is really good!It's hard,but that's what savestates are for I guess.

EDIT:what do I do here?

Thanks for the criticism and compliments, though I can tell you definetely aren't a hardcore uber-zelda player. Two tricks that you'll need are the boot and bomb jump. Bomb jumping involves planting a bomb and using the explosion to hop gaps. If you ever play Euclid and SePH's Parrallel Worlds hack, you better be good at it. Bomb jumping has a bit of an element of luck involved. The second one is the boot jump. f you run into a wall with the boots, you get sent flying back. You can use that to leap a pit.

I already knew about both of those,although,if you've only played alttp,you might not even know about those tricks.You might wan't to rework that puzzle,just to make the hack more accessible.

There's a room in Ganon's Tower in Dark World that has four faeries, a bunch of arrows and bombs, and I think a few recovery hearts in to that requires that you boot jump in order to reach. If I remember correctly, you have to bomb jump your way back across the gap to continue on to face Agahnim.
