    Welcome one and all to yet another Friday game night, an opportunity to mess around in a pile of fellow tempers and earn a cool 35xp on the site while you're at it. Our last outing was with Super Mario 64 Online, and while my soul broke in ways I didn't realize were possible, the event seemed to go over well with people. Continuing in that theme, we now have Ocarina of Time Online up on the docket, a special hack of the classic game which allows multiplayer progression. Key items collected by one player are given to all players in the server, and you can interact with one another in various ways.

    As for how to get things up and running, first download the Ocarina of Time modloader here.

    You'll need a v1.0 of the game, which I obviously cannot provide here for legal reasons, and it needs to be put in the directory 'OotModLoader_1.1.4_BETA_Client_win64\rom'

    Upon launching the executable, you'll then be met with this screen:

    Make sure the game is pointing to your ROM's location correctly. You'll also want to set some custom colors for your Link's tunics in the customization tab. Don't mess with the lobby name or password, instead head over to the lobby browser, and search for the lobby that will be created once we begin streaming. The name will be "Meteor's Moist Pit" and the password will be "GBAtemp". After joining the lobby, you should be good to go.

    Right now we're doing a vanilla run, but since this mod will also work with the current OoT randomizer, it's possible to do an online randomizer run sometime in the future. Look forward to that. ;D

    So when does one need to tune in to join? The stream will be starting at 5pm central time, so come join us on our official Twitch channel and say hi. Even if you just participate in chat instead of playing, you'll still net the 35xp.

    Make sure to enter the command '!xp' during the stream to get your xp, and make a post here with your Twitch name, if it's different from your 'temp name.

    Might give it a go, sounds like fun! Any objections to streaming on my own channel?

    My twitch name is squishysquidly, which is what I go by everywhere except here. My account name here is a bit too old to change now.

    This sort of thing is a lot of fun, especially with more people. Hope to see everyone on there hyaaaaing it up.

    Aside from the novelty? I suppose many puzzles can be solved in different ways with multiple people. Just imagine going through both adult and child sides of the Spirit Temple simultaneously.
    No objections to streaming on your end as well at all.

    Correct. We've just set up a Nightbot command '!xp' which automatically appends your Twitch username to a list, to more easily distribute xp. If your name on there is the same as here, we can find you, but if not, we're asking that users post their Twitch usernames here so we can give them their xp.

    Something I don't understand. For a site that condones piracy , you sure make a lot of events that require pirated versions of games. Wheter or not you provide the roms doesn't matter , you're still actively promoting that people go ahead and pirate roms... Why is it that its ok to promote this , while moderators constantly try to pretend that this site isn't 100% about piracy.. It started about piracy , lives because of piracy ..

    My twitch name is FEF1's_Toaster, which is obviously not the same as my name here. Also, massive credit goes to whomever is doing the xp thing, that must be a pain in the ass to try and figure out sometimes.
