Part of the Series: A Moment in Time

[?] Karma: 0

Description:
UPDATE 06/10/14:
Made with ZC Version 2.5.

If you get swallowed by a like-like and lose your shield, there is no shop on the overworld (there is no overworld) where you can purchase another. I always put a shield or two in like-like infested dungeons, but they may be difficult to come across (there's one for free if you kill some enemies, and there's another in a shop for a fairly-expensive 100 rupees, and both are quite far in). I recommend that you save if you find yourself within earshot of the entrance and have made some significant progress (go file/quit, and choose the save option), so that you can restart if you get swallowed by a like-like, and getting another shield (or going without) would be hard or impossible. Also, spam the boomerang like crazy.

The Quest is password protected, not because I don't want you to steal it or anything, but because I don't want you cheating, lol. If, because of a bug, you find yourself forever-stuck (through a method besides the one I just warned you of), then I'll give you the password so you can activate the level-4 cheats.

... Continued in first post.

You're using windows, I imagine? Download the program here: http://www.shardstorm.com/zc/alphas/910-windows.zip
Once you're done, I'll tell you what to do in order to get the quest running.

It's downloaded. It went quite fast, about 5% in 2 seconds.

Next up, make a Zelda Classic folder somewhere on your Hard-drive, like, in your documents, or something, and extract all the contents of the zip file you just downloaded into it. You can do that, right? You remember what you did from back when you extracted my Cavemaker, assuming you did do that, lol.

Tell me when you've finished this step.

Next up, double-click on the file named zelda-w.exe (not z-questw.exe, that's the editor). If this does not work, instead try running z-launch.exe, and when that program comes up, clicking "Launch ZC". I'm gonna finish out the instructions from here, and you can let me know if any of the steps gives you trouble. There's a good chance ZC just opened in full-screen, and it could be difficult to flip back-and-forth between here and the ZC window.

Next, the Armegeddon games logo comes up, so press any key to make it go away. From there, press escape and go to Settings/Key Buttons and get a feel for what the game's controls are. Also, especially remember what key you're using for the "A" button (for me, it's the z key). Also, remember what your "Start Button" was, because now I want to to close out of the key buttons dialog, click somewhere inside the ZC window, and then press the "Start Button". The file-select screen will now come up. Scroll to "Register your name" using the arrow keys, and press whatever your Start Button is. Then, type the name of your file and press enter. Then, select your newly-made file (should already be selected) and do not press start, but instead press your "A Button". Press it a second time (the menu says that this is for a "Custom Quest"). When the select quest dialog comes up, click "browse" and navigate to where you've saved my quest, Level_3.qst. After you've selected the proper file, click OK. Now you should be back at the file select screen. Press your "Start Button" to begin the quest. If you find that the game runs extremely fast or extremely slow, press F1.

Don't forgot to read my level description too (at the top of this page), mainly because it's just so informative. If you get stuck, I'm here to help. After playing it for a bit, if you'd like to know how to make your own quest, I could probably assist with that too.

What? Did you get the game running? If you've never played the original game before, it might be an idea to do that. For that, you just register and name and press start, without selecting to go to a custom quest. If you actually loaded -my- quest, the graphics should be similar to those seen in my level 5 video (it'll be a forest area, and not an ice dungeon), and not... really old. My quest doesn't really have "levels" yet, since it's still a work in progress, and so far you can only play levels 3 (this level) and 5 (the one you saw in the video, but you have to download a different file for that). There is no "lvl 1" in my quest, so if you actually do have a level 1, then what you're playing is probably the clone of the original Legend of Zelda from the 1980's. If you want to know "how to do" the original game's level 1, there's GameFaqs. I haven't played it in ages, so I probably wouldn't be able to help you. If you want to know "how to do" my quest, just play it and explore for a while, until you can't figure out where to go next, and then I can help you.

Umm... I guess, of course you don't have the original GAME. But, now that you have a clone of the original game, you CAN play the original's QUESTS. Like, you load it up the same way as you do my quest, except you open 1st.qst (included amongst the files you extracted), and play that instead. Alternatively, as I previously described, in order to play 1st.qst, you don't even need to load the file. Just pressing the Start Button on a file that you've just created accomplishes the same thing. I suggested you did this so as to get yourself more used to the controls and the way the game works. Excuse me for trying to be helpful. I promise to be much less so in the future....

... which starts, right now. You know what? Play Level 5 instead. There's a video for that, and you can just use that as a guide. I'm not going to tell you what to do if you don't tell me what you're stuck at, or worse, if you're not stuck, you haven't even tried it at all, and you want me to hold your hand through the whole thing.

OK...you know, when you click the zelda-w (or zeldac-w, or whatever thing you click to open the game), there's a window that asks you to either open the game, save it or close it. It's a little hard to describe...

zeldac-w? I've no idea what that is, but I supposed maybe it could be something different with build 910. Anyway, if you managed to get level 3 running, then I have no idea why you'd have any difficulty with level 5...

The only thing I could figure is that didn't register a new name. If you want to play a different quest, then you have to register a new name at the file-select screen.

Edit: It doesn't work on build 473, the one I'm currently using.

OK, here's another guess at the problem. So after you select Level_5.qst, the window comes up again, but, the quest was selected, so now you press OK. The only reason to click "browse" again is if you accidentally selected the wrong file.

Summary: After doing it once, click OK.

So at what point, exactly, does whatever-it-is-that-you've-failed-to-describe occur?

First you said that it happens when you click zelda-w.exe, and then you said it happens with any quest that you've tried, which makes no sense, since it's impossible to select a quest to play until after the game is good and loaded.

No...like you click the Level_5 or such file, THEN a window comes up asking you to save the file you just clicked, or open it. When I click open, an internet window comes up (I use IE 8) and then it closes, the "open-and-save" window comes up again. The progress keeps repeating itself.

I'm just going to delete the files and download them again...I'll tell you if it still happens.
Note: if I just click zelda-w, there's no problem opening it. It's just the Level_5, Level_3 or such files I have this problem with.

EDIT: OK...it's not working. I tried right-clicking the files, clicking "Open With..." and clicking "Browse..." and then finding the "zelda-w" and clicking that and clicking "OK"...but it still doesn't work.

1. Open Zelda-w.exe
2. Enter a name
3. Select the name with the sword button (usually left ctrl)
4. Press the sword button again
5. Press Browse
6. Select the level you want to play
7. Open it
8. ???
9. Profit!

Wow. So you didn't even read my instructions at all? Last post of page 4, btw. I guess mine were a little more wordy than Jell's, but you should have at least been able to tell that you were doing to completely wrong.

I guess I could, eventually. I'll put up 11 minutes of it like I did for Level 5.

Livio, have you played this again since the last time you played it?
