I, Introduction

This patch is an evolution of the old BS Zelda Lite and BS Zelda Real Hardware patches I created in the past. With this project the playability of BS LoZ is now excellent. Some of the features of this patch are:

  • Works on authentic Real Super Nintendo Hardware! Most other versions including all based on Roto's don't work.
  • Title Screen and Story Roll! Retro feeling title screen and story sequence.
  • Classic feeling Menu System! Similar to the original LoZ Menu but with practical improvements. You have 3 save slots, 3 characters, name entry, map selection
  • Both Map 1 & Map 2 Quests in one rom! Combined both Maps into 1 Patch, the first and currently only to do so.
  • Four full Weeks of 50 minutes playtime! Previously Triforce based advancement has been removed in favor of a more broadcast experience.
  • Playable from Beginning to End! Play both maps with no known glitches, problems, or missing features.
  • Different Endings for Success and Failure! Using art from the original broadcast to have two different endings.

    II, Important gameplay tips

    Due to the game's original broadcast nature the game will always take 200 minutes to play from beginning to end. Because of this many players will find themselves with alot of extra time at the end of each Week. If you don't want to use this time you may go to your inventory screen and press L+R+Y+B at once to end the week. You'll see minutes fly by in seconds until the end of the week is reached. Also because of the long nature of the game you may wish to save your game in the middle of a week. At the Inventory screen press L+R+Up. You will hear a sound effect to confirm the data was saved. However if you have already defeated Ganon in the final week, saving is no longer possible. One final note, if you wish to reset your game with your controller, at the inventory screen press L+R+Start+Select.
