Zelda: Ocarina of Time Easter Egg - Play the Beta Quest
NOTE: The Legend Of Zelda, Ocarina of time is split up into 3 versions depending on updates of the game after it's release. They are as follows, with descriptions on how to tell what version you have.
Version 1.0: Almost all gold cartridge games. At the end of the game, Ganon throws up red blood.
Version 1.1: Very few of these. Where made on the last few gold cartride games. Ganon now throws up green blood, and the fire temple music is slightly different.
Version 1.2: Grey cartridges. If you bought a the game recently, it's this one.
(If you can't get the code to work for you, then try a different version of the code.)
What is the beta quest? It was discovered by Kuky Frope and his Gameshark hacking group. In it, you start off in a dark Hyrule Field, and hear Epona in the backround. You can't select pause, but all C buttons are functional (I think the items you can use are bombs, arrows, and the hookshot). You can walk around and explore, but sometimes when you try and enter an area, the game freezes. Anyways, i'd explain what happens when you go places, but i'll leave it out to see what happens.
It's not an actual side quest like in the original Zelda, it's just considered one becasue you can explore Hyrule. It is thought that the contet of the beta quest was used by Nintendo durring press confrences. Why though, Nintendo left the data in there is a mystery.
In order to preform the Beta Quest, you will need a gameshark V3.0 or higher. If you have one, then go into Zelda64, and enter in a new code:
(Note: Changing the 20 value in the codes to 21, 22, 23, etc, will give you different results. Experment around for awesome results E.G. Walking around in the title screen)
Turn on the beta quest code, and start the game. If you entered the right code for your version of the game, youm will see the N64 logo, and then will start in Hyrule Field where the beta quest begins.
