Zelda: Ocarina of Time’s unofficial PC port now supports Mac OS and Wii U | #computerhacking | #hacking


The fan-made PC port of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, ‘Ship of Harkinian’, now runs on Mac OS and hacked Wii U consoles.

The support was shared on Thursday as part of the fan development team’s latest “Ship of Harkinian Direct”, when Habour Masters also confirmed several new features now available as part of the latest update.

That includes a free camera mode, the ability to equip items to d-pad (including tunics and boots), support for up to 250fps, and an item randomiser mode, as well as a host of new cheats like the ability to adjust Link’s fall damage.

Ocarina of Time – PC port stress test

The next release of the port, named Rachael Alfa, is now available on the team’s official Discord. The new features were unveiled via a video published on Thursday (embedded below).

Ship of Harkinian brought Zelda: Ocarina of Time to PC earlier this year with many new features such as HD graphics, ultra-widescreen resolution, keyboard support, modding support, force feedback and gyroscope aiming.

The PC port was made possible thanks to a two-year fan project which successfully reverse-engineered a version of Ocarina of Time into compilable C code.

A similar decompilation project led to a Super Mario 64 PC port in 2019. Mario 64’s PC port was quickly modded with new graphics and modern effects such as ray-tracing, and it looks likely Ocarina will receive even more modding support.

This kind of reverse engineering is made legal because the fans involved did not use any leaked content, nor use any of Nintendo’s original copyrighted assets. Players will have to provide their own version of the game ROM in order to play the port.
