OK. I guess it's done then. I didn't know if it was complete or not, or what. Now I haven't finished playing Oracle of Seasons myself. That was fun.

As I replied in your email, I might as well post my answer here:



"I've already given premission for someone else to make a fangame based on the ideas on my maps.  As I mentioned to them, I really think it would be better for you to come up with your own ideas.  But as I don't intend to do anything more with this, as its purpose has been fulfilled, I guess there's no harm if you want to use some of the ideas from my maps, so long as you clearly credit VGMaps.com in there."



And, now, I don't want to be mean, but I'm not really a fan of fangames (seems ironic, I know), and from the half-dozen requests I've gotten from people to make a fangame out of this (of which I said to them it would be better if they came up with their OWN ideas), I would be willing to bet that most of them won't get anywhere near completion.  If you can, kudos to you, but I just find that most of the time when fans set out to make a game it rarely actually materializes into anything.



Though I suppose I should be flattered that people think it could be made into a good fangame...

I'm probably the only one who sees the "VGMAPS.COM" text that's all over the dungeon maps, aren't I.

Well, this is a little frustrating.



I looked on all my computers, and I can't find the work files for the eight main dungeons.  I think they're lost.



I was probably moving files back and forth between all three computers while backing up, and at some point I renamed a bunch of folders in my temporary work files folder, and I think I assumed everything was backed up on one when it really wasn't, and probably deleted a whole folder that ended up actually being the complete one.  Okay maybe that doesn't make sense but it does to me, and I can't see why I would've specifically deleted the eight dungeons and not the last one.



>_<



I mean, I still have backups of all the final versions, but it still would have been nice to have some of my old work files...

Years later, it still comes up...can't believe it was seven years ago already...

Anyone know what they're saying here at the 3:00 mark?

In DidYouKnowGaming?'s A Complete History of Zelda Rumors - Did You Know Gaming? Feat. Remix (Part 2), published just two days ago, VGMaps.com is mentioned twice, at 5:40 (for The Legend Of Zelda: Link's Awakening Advance for April Fools' Day 2005) and at 7:00 (for The Legend Of Zelda: Oracle Of Hours for April Fools' Day 2008).  Almost can't believe those projects were that long ago (and that they still get brought up)...

I think it's absolutely wonderful. I was waiting to see what you'd come up with this year. I was also waiting to comment cause I couldn't think of anything witty enough to play along with. Found this testogen review intersting You've outdone yourself yet again with a completely believable map, and quite a believable story (at least to those who didn't follow the other two games as closely as others did, heh).

This looks like a job for Science!
This is a list of ROM hacks for Oracle of Ages (and Seasons, if it ever happens). Contents. 1 Oracle of Nature; 2 Oracle of Hours; 3 Archipelago; 4 Kaizo of Ages; 5 MISICS; 6 Crossworld ... Made by Luigi, and based on the maps from an April Fools joke by Jon Leung. ... Read the readme before playing.
