Summary

  • Modding, HD and ultrawide

Modding, HD and ultrawide

Released in 1998, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is considered one of the best video games of all time so that he is part of the selection to be integrated into the Video Game Hall of Fame. And today, the title is being offered a second youth: the developer Harbor Masters announced yesterday through a Youtube video that its PC port of the Nintendo 64 game was available for download on its Discord. He is named Ship of Harkanian in homage to the Zelda CD-I and requires the import of its own Rom from the Nintendo 64 game. However, the developer encourages people to subscribe to Nintendo Switch Online and its additional pack since it includes an emulated version of Legal Ocarina of Time.

In the program ? High definition graphics, controller and keyboard compatibility but also support for ultrawide screens (21:9) as well as the possibility of modding. Nevertheless, Harbor Master also indicates that it is working on other future features: visual feedback, a rate of 60 frames per second, hidden references as well as models and high definition audio, not to mention an online mode or compatibility with Macs and the Linux operating system. This is VGC trying the thing via one of its editors Andy Robinson:

A planned sequel

There is therefore still a lot of work to be done by the person who has studied all the code of Ocarina of Time (reverse-engineering) to understand how it works in order to propose a PC port. On this subject, it is his indirect sequel Majora’s Mask which is currently under study by Harbor Masters: he is waiting for the code to be dissected by the community. A work whose progress is estimated today at 45%. Once again, the most eager players will always be able to console themselves by subscribing to the Nintendo Switch Online + Additional Pack since Majora’s Mask has joined the catalog since February 25.

Such treatment has not only been reserved for Ocarina of Time: it is the legendary Super Mario 64, still on the Nintendo console, which has already passed through the hands of a community fond of this kind of initiative. 4K, 60 FPS… a facelift to the taste of modern codes for one of the most revolutionary adventure games of its time. A tribute quickly aired by Nintendo, which attacked the sites hosting the port.
