Zelda's BirthdayDescription

Don’t think this is gonna be a 100% Gold Remake, it’ll have its differences. Extra battles (some’ll be optionals, tough but rewarding), Hoenn Pokemon (in every area, and hard to find) New areas, Remapped some dungeons (so your old guides wont work) , Extra recurring characters (some’ll hate you, some’ll help you)

Note that the hack is incomplete but feel free to enjoy the hack as-is.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Zelda's Birthday (Version 1.5)

Taking place generations after the events of Ocarina of Time, Link's decent
embarks on a much lighter hearted quest, only to discover that even a
peaceful Hyrule can be dangerous.

This hack is for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Debug ROM.  The first
record in the debug ROM is level select.  If you use it, you cannot save, and
the events of the game will not work properly!  Please start a new game on 
either record 2 or 3.



1. What is it?

Officially hosted at:

It's a hack for The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (MQ) Debug ROM.  

It features all new actor arrangements, all new text and story line,
3 totally redesigned dungeons, an optional side quest, endings(plural),
and hidden goodies.

It is short, but packs plenty of game play.

2. Where to get the ROM

Note, if you choose for some reason not to use the provided ROM, make sure
the ROM you apply this patch to is: 

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Debug Version (with 120 room fix)
byte swapped (in Z64 format, NOT V64) 

3. What to run it on

You'll need an N64 Emulator.  I suggest 1964. Nemu, or Project 64 are also 
good choices.

4. Which Video Plugin should be used

Suggested video plug in is Jabo v1.6 or Jabo v1.7.

5. Getting the debug ROM To Run

To access ROM settings in 1964, or Project 64, under the file menu, choose
Directory.  Set the directory to where your ROM is kept.  Then right click on
your ROM. In Nemu, simply press F8.

The main ROM settings that will need changed to get the Debug ROM running are:

8 Megs or Expansion Pak = Yes (1964, Project64, and Nemu)
Use TLB = No (1964, and Project64)
DMA in Segments = No (1964)

For more details please see:

6. Where to get the patching tool

Link to ppf-o-matic 3.0

7. How to apply the patch

Use ppf-o-matic 3.0 to apply Zeldas_Birthday_v15.ppf to the ROM

Note: When choosing the ROM in ppf-o-matic, please change the Files of Type
drop down list from CD Images to All Files (*.*) in order to have the ROM

8. Hints

Main thing to know is to listen close to all the characters, and read all
signs.  The will give clues valuable in finishing the game, and uncovering
all it's secrets.
