You’ll need the base ROM. This should be a Zelda no Densetsu: Kamigami no Triforce v1.0 ROM. Don’t worry if you can’t read Japanese; the patching process provides English text while keeping the glitches unique to the original version intact.
One can verify they have the correct ROM on this site.
If you run into trouble, ask in Discord!
Head on over to Generate Randomized Game and provide your ROM. The next screen will show a variety of game options. For your first few runs, we recommend using “Beginner” in the “Select Preset” and leaving the rest of the settings as is. Then click “Generate Normal ROM” and you’ll be given a newly minted randomized game!
A more in-depth guide to all the available options can be found here.
First, you’ll need something to run your newly minted game on. We recommend using an emulator. An emulator is a program that closely replicates SNES hardware, allowing you to run SNES games on your computer. You can get the recommended emulator, SNES9x, at their website here.
While you can play using only your keyboard, a controller makes for a better experience. While most USB controllers will work, we recommend an iBuffalo Classic USB Gamepad or an 8Bitdo SF30 Wireless Bluetooth Controller.
There are other supported ways to play, including on original SNES hardware. There are also certain emulators, such as zsnes, that won’t work correctly with the randomizer. Join us on Discord to learn more!
NOTE FOR SNESMINI PLAYERS: Rename your ROM file to have 61 characters or fewer as the SNESMini can’t handle long file names.
You’re finally ready to go! The best way to learn is to load up your new ROM and start playing. If you feel like you’re stuck, check out this list of common pitfalls, or ask on Discord.
