Update: Unfortunately the team never finished the project because of technical issues related to the impossibility to incorporate actors into the new scenarios they made. But thanks to Akito_Kun a playable demo of the mod was shared online.
The Ocarina of Time Beta Restoration Project was a mod who’s goal was to remake the entire (or as much as possible) Beta version of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time. Now, there are several beta versions. They were focusisng on the A+C version, where there was only adult link. So the game was adult link only. There was a massive number of things from the beta being revived.
Beta attacks such as the jump strike and sword beam attack. All attacks and interface modifications were programed directly into the game, so no cheats needed. And of course, the original A+C interface was there, as well as a integrated textures to make the game look as legitimate as possible.
Beta Items include:
- Bomb arrows
- Equippable fishing rod.
- Reed whistle for calling Epona
Beta areas such as:
- Original graveyard (flat, very different layout)
- Castle Sewers (original method of escaping castle)
- Beta castle town (3D and explorable)
- Lost woods (3D, has multiple trails leading to places, and no tunnels like final version)
- And more!
Old Project News :
Currently ZM90 has not touched the beta restoration stuff in months and TBT just recently reformed, they are not done with the demo, and they are just getting things back to normal. Their plan is to release a playable demo of the Zelda 64 Beta Restoration in the following months. Due to internal issues in the team, it’s possible that the Zelda 64 Beta Restoration will never be finished.
