1) The no-aa patch disables the VI's anti-aliasing filter pass on the console hardware. If you're using an emulator you won't see any difference unless you're using LLE graphics like angrylion.

2) Everdrive 64, 64drive, or a reflashed repo cart of course! 8)
GLideN64 will probably be your best graphics plugin choice, after that I think it's a toss up between Project64 and mupen64plus.

Follow the steps on how to patch a rom here:

https://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=5281.0

Most likely you're missing step 2 where you need to change the endianness of the ROM.
Projects: Zelda OoT GCtoN64, Doshin the Giant, SSSV, Sim City 64, Getter Love, Shiren
Flash Carts: EverDrive64 2.5, EverDrive64 3.0, EverDrive N8, SD2SNES

I've noticed a pretty glaring bug with my patched OoT MQ, a lot of the objects that you can add or remove such as boulders, the wall that you destroy to get into the Farore's Wind Fairy Fountain, and Magic Bean sprouts, all seem to be undone after you save. Is this a reproducible bug? Or should I get a fresh ROM and patch it again?
EDIT: BTW I'm using a 64Drive

Thanks for these patches! I have a couple of questions/suggestions.

1. Could there be an alternative version with even faster text speed?
2. Could the patches make dpad more useful? For example, I've seen gecko codes that use dpad down to switch between boots, and dpad up for ocarina.

I have a question regarding putting the .n64 rom back into the Gamecube disc.

I'm having a pretty difficult time getting it to work. Here is what I did:

* Extract the entire rom using Dolphin
* Extract the .tgc file that has the games in it, also using dolphin
* Use TGCtoGCM to convert this file to .gcm
* Patch the rom
* Replace the urazle_f.n64 with the patched rom using GC-Tools and when prompted don't change the filesize
* Use GCMtoTGC to convert the .gcm file back to TGC. (File size is now lower than the original and I suspect this is the issue)
* Use GC-Tools once again to replace the .tgc file with the newly patched one and when prompted don't change the file size.

If anyone can help me get this working, that'd be sweet.

EDIT: It might actually be the rom itself because the patch ITT removes the part of the CD loading code if I am not mistaken.

EDIT2: Maybe it's the .z64 header, I thought I had to change it from .n64 but that isn't the case. The purple screen with the grey bar fills up but it doesn't do anything. Just freezes.

These patches won't run correctly when re-injected on the gamecube disc.

These patches won't run correctly when re-injected on the gamecube disc.

It ended up working on the collectors edition, after replacing Majora's Mask rom, and making a simple hex edit to the patched Master Quest rom.

replace zelda2e.n64 with patched urazle_f.n64

open hxd or some other hex editor and replace:
THE LEGEND OF ZELDA .......CZLE
with
ZELDA MAJORA'S MASK .......NZSE

Because Majora's Mask uses the 8mb expansion, it will now load.

Edit: I took it a step further and replaced the urazle.tpl and urazle_f.n64 with the modded zelda2e.n64 and default zelda2e.tpl and it worked.

Edit2: Though putting it back into the disc version of Master Quest does not

OoT will not be able to save when you inject it in the MM emulator for Gamecube, they're not compatible.
