"1512 - Classic NES Series - Legend of Zelda (UE)" works. A couple others I found did not.
xenyztw 11 Jul 2015 21:04
If you have the message "Game Pak Error - Turn off the power", just change the emulator's save type to EEPROM. (Go to Options > Emulator > Save Type and choose EEPROM). Reset and here you go.

Bested Ganon is broken.
ZBR 27 Dec 2016 02:18

Kaymander 4 Jul 2018 10:14
I got it working with Libretro

Achievements for besting the first two dungeon bosses are broken. They triggered in the room before the boss I believe. I stopped playing it and did the NES version instead because of that.To those having trouble running the game, use mGBA.

@ImpliedKappa I finally decided to run my roms through the no-intro database. Found out many I had were not verified by them, some N64 ones were overdumped even.

The input on this game is super slow.

Bested gleock 1 quest without damage not trigger

For Bested Patra: Which Patra is the one? There's five in the dungeon.
tinycyan 12 Jul 2021 21:46
@reesekaine i think is "the one that bombs appear as bonus room loot, below the "go to the next room" Old Man"
ReeseKaine 26 Jul 2022 09:03
Two years ago, I was having no problems using the mGBA core, and now RA is seeing the same game with the same core as an unknown game. What gives?
Kinsei1 18 Apr 2023 14:32
Mastered! I figured this would be a walk in the park after doing the swordless achievements in the NES version, but no damage Ganon was tough.

Thanks for the set!
Darkfang114 29 Mar 2024 04:15
I've always wanted to experience the Zelda series from the beginning, never played the nes version before. I want to, but the achievement list is too intimidating. Would this be a good enough place to start instead? I'm not sure if it's a straight port or what
nahuelescobar 29 Mar 2024 04:20
In my opinion this set is more difficult just because of the Ganon damageless cheevo
Kinsei1 29 Mar 2024 13:43
This is indeed a straight port. I also agree that this is a more difficult set though. While the swordless achievements of the NES set may seem intimidating, they're mostly an exercise in routing.the damageless Ganon cheevo in this set involves RNG and also has a rather tedious walk back to the boss for each attempt.
bruhgamer 23 May 2024 12:53
Damageless Ganon is actually really easy if you use flute and sword at the same time. You can kill him in 30 seconds.
OliviaWants2BePretty 2 Jul 2024 01:49
What does using the recorder and the sword at the same time do? Is it some kind of glitch?
bruhgamer 2 Jul 2024 13:53
Not really a glitch, but when you use the flute it freezes the game for a few seconds and plays a tune. Play it and sword at the same time you'll do your attack animation and the game will freeze which only also means Ganon is frozen. Doing this over and over allows you to attack Ganon frame by frame. Just stand near where he normally is at the beginning and play flute and sword till you hit Ganon 3 times then shoot em with an arrow for an easy win.
bruhgamer 2 Jul 2024 14:08
Actually you gotta hit em 4 times but, here's a video from me doing it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOKf3zR2JkY
