Game Over
Return of Mido





After finishing Nimpize Adventure last year, I had a desire to do more Ocarina of Time romhacks. I wanted to see what would happen if someone wasn't limited by the original game's maps and dungeons, and made more unique content like the overworlds and mini-dungeons in Nimpize. The only problem was...there weren't really any other Ocarina of Time romhacks. At least, not good ones, or ones long enough to be worth devoting an LP to. So I kept the idea in the back of my head and moved on for a while.

Fast forward to Summer 2020, and a person named doncamillo released a brand new Ocarina of Time hack, promising a completely new world, a continuation of the plot started with Ocarina and Majora's Mask, at least 20 hours of playtime, and more. Naturally, I completely missed out on its release but eventually I heard about the hack. I took a quick look at the trailer, a few screenshots, updated my Project 64 installation, grabbed a few of my friends, and set out to explore another Ocarina of Time romhack. Welcome, everyone, to The Legend of Zelda: Master of Time.

----------

This is a Blind LP! If you have played or watched the game before please do not spoil or allude to future events in any way! None of us are familiar with the game beyond a basic level, so in keeping with the spirit of discovery, don't tell us anything about the hack.

We're recording these videos while also streaming them on my Twitch channel, much like we did Nimpize Adventure. This means that occasionally we'll reference or talk to the people watching in chat, but a chat window will not be visible. I'll also be letting the thread know when we stream new episode recording sessions, so that anyone interested in catching the streams can watch.

Joining me on this adventure will be Artix, ChaosArgate and PoorlyWritten in permanent co-commentator positions, and some other friends of mine at random. They will be sure to help guide me through this game filled with verticality, 3D platforming, milk conspiracies, opaque water, and lots of theft (of our own doing we are the thief).

Not gonna lie, I was really expecting you to go with the name Trunks given the title of the romhack. Then again, that's pretty much what the Xenoverse games are for.

I have a fun story to tell about this hack: I was a beta tester for it! Mainly I proofread ESL errors but looks like I missed some, oops Early on since I didn't know the hacker and whether they were chill or FFT1.3-like I didn't push much on things. After the hack was feature-complete I meant to go back and replay it before it was released to catch things I missed the first time, but, uh, I didn't, so now you get ESL stuff early on that goes away as the hack progresses.

Can confirm that the museum displays are supposed to be transparent.

Fun fact: don camilo's youtube channel has the full soundtrack on it, so you can find out what all the midis are from! Don't actually look at the video, it has spoilers, but I'll repost the songs we've heard:

Intro cutscene: Turok 2 - The Hub
Main theme: Antonin Dvorak - Humoresque No. 1
Owl theme: He's Our Comrade Kim Jong Il
Sagnol indoors: Mission Impossible 64 - Embassy Function
Sagnol village: Lyric song of Sormovo

No, I don't know why the owl is kim jong-il

ESL? Something scripting language?

Also @FPZero it would be really nice if you could figure out why your emulator is making stuff non-transparant, fix it, and go back to the museum. I want to know what we're missing out of.

Hey want to see something hosed up?



The ladders in Sagnol used to blend in really well with the wall textures. I feel like getting the hacker to change them to be more visible is my greatest contribution to this hack, because hoo boy scouring the entire village looking for the ocarina was pretty miserable before! I remember saying "hmm not sure about this" about the switch "puzzle" but it never got changed, oh well. Pretend it's a reference to the end of the sewers in LttP with the two switches. I reported a number of "big chest animation on small chest" bugs but oops looks like I missed one. Also I don't remember Graveyard Kid being present in the beta, weird.


Our music selection for today is:

Sagnol tomb: Summoning - Long Lost to Where No Pathway Goes
Grotto theme: Arena - Song 11


Goku's List of Crimes So Far:
  • Stole Talon's medicine fund
  • Desecrated a tomb
Expect this list to expand as the game continues

Sagnol is a Provence French surname, so I wouldn't be surprised. It's derived from the occitan word for a swampy area, but I don't know if it really fits here. (Also it's pronounced San-y'all.)
Honestly, just reading the dialogue and the way everyone addresses Link so... casually, I got some intense French vibe from it as well. Like, I tend to write my English dialogues the same way.

I attempted to play this with friends, but I messed up on loading the rom the first time. I had an old save file that I loaded into somehow, so I started the game without magic.

This may surprise you, but you need magic to finish the game. Rather than restart, I just shelved it since I didn't want to replay stuff again right away.

The maker of the hack is definitely French. There's some stuff coming up later on which I won't spoil that confirms it. It's very specific.

Y'all wanna know something awesome?! (may not actually be awesome)

Apparently a group is making a romhack of this romhack, called Mistress of Time. It stars Malon instead of Link, and is, I quote, "even edgier".

When I have release information, I'll post more here, but for now, have the ad post that was spammed in the Paper Mario Master Quest discord server:

quote:

Coming Soon...

...Aliud ex alio malum...

...One evil rises after another...

Is Zelda Master of Time too edgy for you?

Prepare for a an even edgier adventure where Malon becomes the star of this Legend!

Totally adapted for her, The Mistress of Time is a medieval tale of dilemmas, crime, power desires and romance where the most polemic themes of the Middle Ages are put on the table!

Will the rancher and her fatherís backstory with the Gerudo finally unfold? Prepare for astounding revelations about Malonís parents and discover the name of her half-sisters in a tale which is more acid than you can imagine!

Follow Malon and the dubious Fairy Nite in Abello, a land where the time no longer passes... A country bursting with defying temples and controversial elements such as Majoraís Cult of Revelations and the Vicious Slaughterhouse!

In this mortal quest, Malon proves that lasses can also be heroes travelling in dark forests, old fortresses and even reaching the Ancient Light Temple of Sol Invictus. This brave lass is embarking in a journey to put her life on the line and her soul to the ultimate blade test which shall take every Zelda element to its maximum challenge on this new story originally released by DonCamilo for Nintendo 64, Wii, and Personal Computers!

Story and Adaptation brought to you by Sailor Lunae and Axis the Trobadour with help of Celestial Clarity, Aegiker, Perrochips/Shadow, DenOfLions, OniHelix, Luigi and many others.

The Malon game model was made by Celestial Clarity. Get to know more of his wonderful work!
