Checksum: CRC32 777AAC2F

Update 1/20/2021: I'm getting lots of complaints from YouTube viewers saying "they can't find the small key in Hyrule Castle." You have to kill all the green soldiers, bomb soldiers, and cannon soldiers to get both chests to appear, one of which contains a small key. I even updated the readme Word document to include this hint.

A Link to the Islands is a Wind Waker-inspired hack of A Link to the Past. It was originally called Lyra Islands and developed by SePH in 2004-2005, but it wasn't finished. In 2015, I took over the Lyra Islands project with the goal of finishing the game one day. I ended up making completely new overworlds and dungeons in addition to restoring the original LTTP graphics and renaming the game A Link to the Islands.

Expect to see:

  • New overworld designs and maps.
  • New Dark World design (Areas 43, 45, & 47 ONLY!).
  • Hyrule Castle re-located.
  • Kakariko Town re-located.
  • New Lost Woods-style puzzle.
  • Eight new dungeons and one mini-dungeon.
  • Ganon gets his own tower in the Dark World.
  • New monologue and in-game clues.
  • New sprites.
  • MSU-1 support.
  • ASM hacks added.
  • New ending cutscenes.
  • Customized ending credits.


A few irreparable problems that popped up during development are documented in the readme included in the zip file. These problems do not affect gameplay and the game can be completed normally.

Unlike Parallel Worlds and Goddess of Wisdom, both of which are notorious for their unforgiving difficulty levels, A Link to the Islands is a game that's fair to everyone. There are no super tricks, stunts, or logic (i.e. masked objects, bomb jumping), while still having a decent level of difficulty. Though, some backtracking may be required at times. Still, you won't ever have to use save states. You will not be frustrated while playing.

It's a nice gameplay, but there are some issue's:

1. When entering the castle courtyard the cloud overlay makes it difficult to see, think this needs to be changed.

I just got trough the sanctuary and headed into the village:

Heart race:
2. the house where you bomb the wall to get to the heart-race-game is bugged because the other side of the wall is still intact, you basically walk trough a closed wall.

The Legend of Zelda - A Link To The Islands - Page 2 Untitled2

In the village, when leaving this house, you are pulled back in, creating a soft-lock.

The Legend of Zelda - A Link To The Islands - Page 2 3bb35e3d1d17e682aeda624d72dd413c

And the over-world map is totally useless, when i am in the village my head should be under water according the map.

If i find more i will edit this post.

Sorry, I am just now seeing your post. I contacted Conn and Puzzledude on the Discord server regarding the useless overworld map and the two bugs/softlocks (bombable wall in Angry Brothers' home stays intact, and leaving former Thieves' hideout in the village pulls you back in). Hopefully they'll get back to me soon.

I also plan on adding a Zelda 1 Lost Woods-style puzzle to Area 3F (the Infinity Beach), but then I would also have to blank out Areas 35, 37, and 3F (as well as Area 30, where the Ice Palace is now found). I get that the cloud overlay in the castle garden makes it hard to see, but I have no plans to change/fix it anytime soon.

This is actually a beta release. The final version will be released by the end of the year.

I finally fixed the softlock. I ended up re-assigning Room 281 (the former Thieves' hideout) to Entrance 45, which was previously unused in this game. You are no longer pushed back into the house when you try to leave; therefore, you no longer have to Save & Quit to exit the house.

Nice job!.

Not sure if this is the "endless beach", but it's somewhere down/right on map
And if you keep going right, the screen becomes weird, blacks-out and you get stuck.

Also the first dungeon where there is a row of four green cyclops statue's
Spoiler:
(the ones you need to arrow the eye for the room to open up)
you can see beyond the wall revealing the secret right before you enter the room.

I know you can see beyond the secret wall in the East Palace. Unless I change the room's design, which I don't plan on doing anytime soon, nothing can be done about it. I'm still trying to add Euclid's ASM for the Lost Woods puzzle at the Endless Beach (think Zelda 1).

Ok, no problem, i'm just sharing the things i find.

Is there a list with known issue's?

Yes, these known issues are documented in the readme.

On another note, the bombable wall in the Angry Bros.' room, just before the heart racing game, is beyond repair.

I thoroughly beta tested A Link to the Islands. Aside from the bugged bombable wall in the house just before the heart race, which I am no longer able to fix (fuck Hyrule Magic), there are no game-breaking bugs in the game. I fixed the softlock in the former Thieves' hideout at the village, and I even added the Lost Woods puzzle in area 3F.

I will be posting it to YouTube later today, so stay tuned.

Has this issue been fixed in the coming release ?

I added a Lost Woods puzzle to that area, and I created a new UPS patch (same download link as before).

I'm almost at the end of this great hack, and i must give credits to the person who continued this hack.

You have done some great work and put alot of effort into this game, altough there are some minor bug's that can effect game play i enjoyed playing this one very much.

Some parts are pretty difficult and require some skill, there are a lot of kill-all-enemies-to-open-door game's were it takes significant amount of time before the last one appears, but it didn't bother me at all.

Overall, great hack, recommend it, but expect some flaws here and there.

Hidden:
Check every stone, there are some not so obvious hidden treasure's

I'm not sure whether you read my reply at discord about fastrom (https://www.zeldix.net/t672-alttp-fastrom).

There are massive slowdowns in lyra which are fixed with this hack. Unfortunately game crashes with native fastrom patch on menu, so I fixed it (attached). Please check it whether there are any further crashes. I strongly recommend a backup Wink

Thanks a lot for your update Smile
But i can't use it, so strange it's the first time i've a bug with a hack ...

I have the good rom with good CRC
I use the online patcher and try also with tsukuyomi

https://www.marcrobledo.com/RomPatcher.js/

And every time i patch my ROM the CRC change but the game is always the original one Sad
Maybe you made a mistake ?
Can you share an IPS patch or other to let me try ?
Thanks a lot

I tested the patch with a fresh US rom with no header, and everything works perfectly on my end.

Are you sure you're using the correct rom? An original US rom with no header is 1,048,576 bytes in size and has the CRC32 777AAC2F checksum. If you try to patch to any other rom, the result will be no operation since the patcher has concluded that your rom is incompatible with the patch.

Yes it is

CRC32 777AAC2F
MD5    608C22B8FF930C62DC2DE54BCD6EBA72
1 048 576 octets
No Header

I've try again and again, and now it works, i really don't understand why.
Sorry to bugging you

I created a new UPS patch, then I tested again with a fresh US rom with no header to make sure it works properly. I'm currently uploading the new patch to the cloud drive.

I don't have another UPS patcher, the tsukuyomi one is the only one I have.
