If you use this, awesome! Send me an email about it; I love hearing about this stuff. paul@paulmehta.com All the content is complete, but in seperate rom images. The dungeons, overworld, etc have to be merged and linked up. I got sick of dealing with memory corruption problems in the editor. After me and Giangurgolo wrote the LazyShell editor, I realized that in oreder to get it all merged successfully, I was probably going to have to just write a whole new editor (which is a real drag). I went as far as writing a dungeon object serializer that can be used to export and import the dungeons without corruption. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- https://twitter.com/#!/ZDarkProphecy Update: It's almost complete, but I haven't worked on it in a long time. I'm thinking about finishing it off and releasing it so if your interested, make a short post here. With the whole overworld, and every dungeon completed the major obstacle is the story. I see 2 options here 1) I complete the game, and there is simply no story to the game. Kinda boring, but LTTP was never about story, and the game would probably get released. 2) One of you volunteers to write the story for it, and pending my approval it gets released with the game. If your interested, send me a msg. --- A Zelda Link to the Past hack that completely remakes the game. If your interested in this hack, and more check out these boards. Theres a whole community there that welcomes new members. http://acmlm.no-ip.org/board/ Check it out.

Not sure what your point is, or what are you trying to say. I'm guessing your are asking, ie want to know more.

I can tell you we all know Dark Prophecy. This is a very old unfinished hack, which was suppose to "rival" the Parallel Worlds hack. But the authors quit.

SePH provided for all the files of the unfinished hack to a very selected few. I also got all the files, but the hack was far from complete. It was a giant mess of a lot (and lot) of files, either roms, gfx and asm.

Despite the fact that the info says it's nearly done, it is not. And I also refused back then to finish it, when seeing how it looked like, since no one can make a direct sence of someone else's work being mid-way. It's like a mechanic would take a car apart and tell someone else to bring it together.

So Dark Prophecy will be known as one of the promising hacks never to be completed, just like Quest for Calatia by GameMakr. There also a lot of other unfinished hacks: Dodongo's gold, Iced Hyrule, etc.

Of course all these hacks are no good to the end-user, since they are completely unplayable.

However one abandoned hack in particular was infact finished: Shards of Might, which I picked up and it later bacame Goddess of Wisdom. Again the original was heavy beta and bugged, you could at least play some of it though. So Shards of Might is not completely unplayable.

I know that's it is really a pain to finish all these hacks ... nut it is really bad to see all of them never release Sad
All this time and energy lost to began project never done ... and all these fantastic Zelda games, fan and hacker ideas we will never see and try .... so bad Sad
