    Okay So this is my first attempt at an n64 project :P But here it is!!
    Welcome to Another Restoration Project For URA Zelda!
    (Project ARUZ 2016 for short ^-^)
    as this will complete what remains of ZethN64's Project, All credit for the original work done goes to him!!

    So recently i was able to acquire all of ZethN64's Project files from before the restoration project was shut down (after a lot of digging around and asking about until we had something beta info to work with and eventually,the files.) So i figured i should assemble a team of talented people to help finish the project and finally release it! if you would like to help in Finally finishing the amazing beta of oot and creating a finished patch file,leave a reply in the thread or just pm me! this time the restoration project will be released as a test rom every time a trailer is put out! I will reassemble as muhc as i can and build off of that until we have a stable rom for everyone to explore :3

    Credits Go to ZethN64 for initially starting this project and creating such amazing work :P

    Current Development Team Members (And What they do) :
    • ZethN64 (Initial Legacy Restore Project Work/Abandonware)
    • Alex S (Creator of Project ARUZ 2016)
    • Ty Anderson (Creator Of Links Awakening 64,SMS Painted edition)
    • Fihn14 (Music work and sound)
    • Vis3c (ura info provider)

    If you would like to join the team, just ask! Any help is welcome,just let us know what you can do and we will add you to the dev team list!!

    Heres a Preview of What To Expect with the 1.0 Alpha Release ^-^:

    Well I decided since nobody else would do it out of fear of being DCMA'D to death by Nintendo, I thought that I should finish it it! ZethN64 Was So Close to finishing it, So Myself and Anyone Who wants to help will finish it so everyone can play it :3

    here is the Ura Zelda Shield model for anyone who wants it :P

    What are the chances of this working on real hardware using a everdrive 64?

    Yup. 100% it will be a ppf patch on initial release (because we all know what happens when you post warez/links to warez. X.X) and after patching the rom,it should still be able to run on the real console! And unlike every other Ura Restoration team,we will release patches AS we create new sections to ensure it never gets taken down before fun can be had first by the people :3

    Gambia, The
    Reviving such an ambitious project from the dead is easier said then done. But if you're up to that challenge, good luck. I completely lack the talent to contribute anything to this. Still I will watch any progress this project gets, because it made me really sad back in the day to see the URA restoration project fall apart. The artwork on the project page looked amazing and the newly composed tunes for the game were great, too. I don't know how much of these things is left by now. The screenshots in the first post are a promising start however :)

    I literally have all the project files from that project except for a prepatched rom. I have a lot of ppf patches though.

    So a) is this an original project, or an extension of a dead one? (never mind, I didn't properly read the OP), b) is this just kind of loosely based on screenshots and leaked story from the original OoT beta, and c) what kind of resources still need to be finished?

    And a lot more of the game is being textured by me Right Now using picture editing apps for android. (It would be helpful if i had someone to help me import the textures into the rom ^-^)

    As of Right Now a few areas need to be finished,and we need to edit the ui itself to have things for ura zelda,and atm im importing maps from the legacy project :P

    Okay last Screenshot for Today ^-^
    [​IMG]
    And ill be starting to import most of the patches properly so it doesnt crash on boot :P

    The colors in the OP are unreadable and blinding. Also huge 56k warning.

    About the project itself... I'll wait to see how this plays out. Not sure if the 'Temp is the best place to gather experienced N64 hackers.

    I don't liked much the texture but the project looks a nice hack xD
    I'm just confused about one thing ... Why to call it Ura when making a hack based with beta elements/cancelled stuff? Isn't "ura zelda" Just the "master quest" ? I mean .. Ura means "reverse side" or " mirrored" in japanese xD also is how is called " master quest" in Jp :v
    This wa splanne dto be an "Dlc" for oot on n64 time but cancelled and become the GC bonus "master quest" we know, right?


    Btw these textures are base on ALTTP hylain or it's just me? XD
    reminded me of this
    [​IMG]
    (lookedbetter on the pyramid's texture :P)
    but I think the original would fit better? xD

    (If it's actually the intention..... just a idea anyway)
