It would be a nice touch if their was achievements that reference the three canonical sequels to OOT (Majora's Mask,Wind Waker, and A Link To The Past).

my suggested titles?-

The Mask- Return Link to his childhood

Water World- Erase Link from existence

KIA to the Past- Kill Link

Which version are you using for mapping the addresses? Have you seen if they differ?

Using 1.0.

I've yet to check for version differences but I'll give it a look.

The addresses for 1.0, 1.1, and 1.2 US are all different unfortunately.

Exclusive Content in v1.0:

The rotating N64 logo upon boot-up is very bright
You can quickly skip through Zelda's text boxes just before she gives you the Light Arrows

Exclusive Glitches in v1.0:

The Master Sword is never restored to the B button after a savewarp, so Swordless Link is possible by savewarping out of the Ganon fight
Can steal the fishing rod by casting while suspended in air via the hover boots, as well as by casting the moment before you jump off of a rock in the pond
You can cast the rod near the door in the fishing pond to crash the game
Can do empty bomb glitch to create collection delay or Quick Draw bombs
The grave holes in Kakariko Graveyard force you to grab their edges/jump over them as Link tries to enter (whether you grab or jump over them depends on your approaching speed).
Can do item input for one frame during Put Away animation, OI by putting away a full bottle, and use items inside a crawlspace or ladder or while pushing a block.
Link has no putaway animation for the sword if he has it out and goes to climb a ladder or vines.


v1.1 is the first update to Ocarina of Time. Many glitches were fixed along with some on-screen text issues and a very minor graphical change was made.
Changes in V1.1:

Can no longer use items during Put Away animation.
The rotating N64 logo upon boot-up has been darkened and looks glossier.
The hover boots and rock-jump methods of stealing the fishing rod are fixed.
You can no longer cast the rod near the door inside of the fishing pond.
If you savewarp without the Master Sword in the inventory as Adult Link, it will be restored to the B button.
Zelda's text before the Light Arrows is no longer skippable.
Various text-box spelling and punctuation errors have been corrected.
The empty bomb glitch is fixed.
The edges of the grave holes in Kakariko Graveyard no longer force you to grab or jump over them as you try to enter.
Link now puts away his sword correctly when going to climb.


NTSC 1.2 is the second revision for the US/Japanese release of the game. This update corrects more text as well makes some notable graphical and sound changes to the game, censoring the blood as well as replacing a controversial song within one of its temples. It also fixes an item-receiving glitch.
Changes in V1.2 (N64):

All the changes that v1.1 made plus....

Ganondorf's and Ganon's blood have been changed from red to green
The Fire Temple theme song has been replaced with a remix of the Shadow Temple's theme
Various text-box spelling and punctuation errors have been corrected
Early eyeball frog and various collection delays have been fixed
You can no longer skip the Bongo-Bongo cutscene by dropping a bomb down before the fight

Hm, kinda sounds like version 1.1 would be best. 1.0 has a lot of glitches that 1.1 fixes, and 1.2 is the point where most of the "controversial" changes go through. But if there are already too many code-notes for 1.0 and they're different, might be hard to switch over. Since most of the "neat" things of version 1.0 are glitches, we can't really make achievements for those glitches anyway...I'd still kind of prefer that it be switched over to 1.1 if possible, but either way.


As far as ideas go, I'd have to think about the basics first ... all three treasures, all of the medallions except the first unless that's used as the indication that you got the Master Sword. Each major treasure in the game. Don't mind gold skultula count but just focus on the rewards they give instead. Include ishing stuff, but if the reward for it is an item, maybe not worry about finding all of the fishing-related-stuff and just focus on the item instead. And of course all levels of Mini-games otherwise, all heart-containers.

That's all the basics, but without knowing how the RAM all works, not sure about any special challenges. I'm sure no-damage-bosses could be interesting to some, but without the ability to easily re-challenge bosses, it might be kind of tedious. Possibly beating Ganon with no-deaths-recorded would be alright....although that could be a save-game-loading achievement. *shrug* Oh, and of course, a three-heart-run or some other minimal-equipment run, as long as they don't involve glitches or specific-version-glitches/tricks. Sequence-breaking, maybe.


What I'm also interested in is the potential for Master Quest(which I'm sure is based entirely on v1.2 since it's the one ripped from the GCN disc). I really think Master Quest should have it's own set, but unless it's fine to be exactly the same, I kinda wonder if there'd be any real difference in achievements for it. If so, it'd be nice if there was some kind of collaboration between the two sets to make sure they're equally different. (Possibly have a three-heart-run in one game and not the other, but have a low-equipment run in the other, or maybe a sequence-break in one but not the other?) If it's not possible and there's literally no way for the achievements to be different(or no real reason to include them in one and not the other, so that they are the same), at the very least maybe point-spread could be adjusted to reflect the difference in difficulty per dungeon, subjective as that might be.

I liked the challenges ideas, most of the progresive / collecting / hidden stuffs etc.. so far are included. For challenges at least for the first 3 bosses we have:

1. Defeat Queen Gohma before she can retreat to the ceiling.
2. Defeat K. Dodongo before he use fire without using bombs from your bag
3. Defeat Barinade without getting hit (i liked the idea to avoid eclecticism damage only but so far unlike the previous bosses i wasnt able to find anything mem wise for him)

For the 3 hearts run other than complete the game with 3 hearts only i was thinking to create some more exclusive achievements just for this run rather than have the player replay the game just for 1 achievement. Maybe some extra challenges on the bosses over to the previous ones or something like listen all 29 gossip stones in 3 hearts run without dying. Just a thought.
