    Hey guys I stumbled upon this the other night:
    [​IMG]
    http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/197/ and thought 'hmn, looks good'. Not sure if its been posted here before, or if anyone here has seen it. It was only released about a week ago.
    Well last night I finally got to try it out for a few hours and its really great, and well worth a look in.
    Nuff props to Euclid and Septh on an excellent job 3 years in the making!

    Quote ReadMe:
    * Are you ready for a brand new adventure?
    * Are you ready to play a whole new zelda 3 game, with completely new
    dungeons and overworlds?
    * Are you ready to find the secrets of the Parallel Worlds?

    Parallel Worlds is a fully hacked version of Zelda 3 (aka A Link to the Past).
    A majority of the game has been changed. There may be a few rooms which can be
    said to be similar to some from the original game.

    General changes involve:

    * Brand new Overworlds, I promise you won't find an area which is unchanged!
    * Brand new Dungeons, all dungeons are completely different from the original!
    * New house indoors and caves, some of these you may find similar to the
    original game.
    * New Graphics, a lot of the graphics have been changed.
    * New Screen layout, similar to Ocarina of Time yet not exactly the same.
    * Some new music, the original game had great music, these are not to be
    changed [​IMG]
    * New Story, while some maybe similar to the original game, but
    it's intentional.
    * A lot of other changes, and surprises!

    This is a result of 4 years (maybe 5) of "behind the scenes" hard work, lots
    of assembly hacks and fixes etc. This game was known as Tower of the Triforce
    which some people may remember, when I released a demo from that game a few
    years ago. When SePH joined the team a majority of the things from that hack
    was taken over into this hack, so spiritually it's still the Tower of the
    Triforce (to me that is).

    This game is difficult. Believe me when I say it is. You'll need to have every
    trick from the original game memorized plus more to beat this.

    Download the patch here and use Lunar IPS patcher to patch the original SNES ALTTP, then play on ZSNES or PSP or whatever other console you have a nice snes emu on!

    I downloaded it like an hour ago, but I haven't played it yet. You say there's new music, so I'll be interested just because not many rom hacks of anything have new music.

    And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why the Virtual Console Fails.

    Gonna try it out tomorrow, thanks for the heads-up!

    They should contact Nintendo about selling it through the Virtual Console... [​IMG] I really don't think that will happen but it would be so awesome that it just has to be tried, right?

    I'm really impressed so far about 4 hours into it. Its harder than ALTTP but not as hard as the creator makes out, maybe it will get tougher.

    According to the Readme on the website, this release is the US version. Here are the requirements as said by the author :

    1. The included patch
    2. A patching program such as LunarIPS (LIPS)
    3. A copy of Zelda A Link To The Past (U) WITH HEADER
    (Don't bother asking for the rom!)
    4. Other useful Information:
    CRC32: 26791EB5 (only if you hard patch the rom)
    headered Patched Size: 1.5MB (1,573,376 bytes)
    No header Patched Size: 1.5MB (1,572,864 bytes)

    You can find a guide on how to use LIPS at romhacking[dot]net

    I'm playing it through dungeon 1 (guard house).
    I found the Big key, but it only open doors, I cannot open the big chest.

    Is there another big key ?
    Edit : Yes, there is a big chest key to find


    Anyway, that's a very good hack.
    difficult yes, as there are a lot of ennemies and no sword until long into dungeon1.
    thanks to savestates ^^

    edit : I'm missing the dungeons map :'(

    so, what about saving? [​IMG]

    even when I die, I just start over in my house, with the opening sequence playing...

    save is working for me.

    just hit select and choose "save & quit"
    then when restarting you can choose 3 starting points
    - Link house
    - The church (if you saved zelda)
    - another one I don't have yet

    It's like original Zelda 3 save system.

    well, I guess I made something wrong while patching...
    gotta try another rom...

    when I save, my savegame is still there, but the progress isn't saved...for example, I start a new game, grab the heart piece in the village, Save & Quit, and when I load my savegame, I don't have the heart piece anymore, and the beginning sequence plays again, where the old man says something about the guardhouse

    You have to get the sword first! It just wont save before that. Same thing if you die. This game is HARD! I found the first "quest object" and I'm now stuck :/

    I tried Zsnes and Snes9x, both are saving correctly.

    maybe you don't have a clean rom.
    Original rom I used :
    name : Legend of Zelda, The - A Link to the Past (U) [!].smc
    CRC : dd42510e

    If you are using Zsnes or Snes9x, copy the .ips on the save folder, with the same name as the rom for real time patching.
    Zelda Parallel Worlds.ips
    Zelda Parallel Worlds.smc




    I'm currently looking for the anryu artifact (I found din's one already)
