>> No.4717583

Considering how much this game has been played and apparently picked apart, chances are extremely high that this behavior isn't in the game at all. It isn't unheard of for elements from prototype versions to find their way into documentation for the game but to not actually exist in the game itself (such as the mock-up screencaps of nonexistent levels on one version of the US SMB3 box, reference to Subworld Hearts in the US SMB2 manual, grey ShyGuy in the DokiDoki Panic manual). As for the in-game text, they probably just neglected to update it when the behavior was removed.

Or maybe it was a bit of throwaway flavor text that the people writing the guide read and referenced in their description assuming the corresponding behavior to exist, but never actually confirmed it themselves one way or the other.

>> No.4717594

You mean the Berserk Gene?

>> No.4717721

I've figured it out. It's an extremely rare glitch that can occur if you fuck about with Dorrie's head animation. Basically if you quickly get to the spot where her head will drop the physics might end up calculating that Mario is colliding with geometry at certain speed and needs to take damage. It's obviously very specific and difficult to pull off but because it can happen (happened once to me as a kid) and the devs couldn't figure out how to debug it they just left that sign as a way to cover their asses.

>> No.4717941

If they don't show it, it sounds like they're saying that if you somehow get under her neck before it drops, damage from Dorrie will occur. I'm not sure how to do that or it's even possible, but I don't doubt that it can be done by some means.

Am I wrong, anon? You mentioned you did it as a kid, and many would write you off for such a statement, but my experience with video games gives me no choice but to believe you.

Yes, you can. It's not easy, but you can walk up its neck part way. You can also maneuver Mario to be on its face. It takes a few tries because at first you'll just fall into the water. I guess I'm going to have to take a crappy picture, huh?

Here's the problem with getting into the supposed position that allows Dorrie to damage Mario, once you hit its back to lower its head, Mario is instantly frozen for a bit onto its back. I'm not sure how it's done, but no one in this thread has actually stated how to do it, not fully anyway.

>> No.4718652

You can ground pound on its back and the head will lower, allowing you to walk on it's head

>> No.4718668

I know...but you can also walk up its neck a bit without doing that, but not much is what I was saying. Everyone knows you have to stomp its back or you never get the star.

I'm betting that Mario and Dorrie have to be near shore for it to happen, using the shore's polygons as fodder to bounce against and otherwise cause the glitch, if it's a glitch.

And the coin was not THAT hidden. It's in a mound in the grass in a place you frequently walk back and forth over. People found it, but no one thought to notify the wider speedrunning community.

It's like how there's a Shock Jump Disc behind the entrance to Click Clock Wood, which you can tell is there by the metalic sound you footsteps make when you walk over it. It isn't impossible to find, and some people found it. But it's obscure, so it's not well documented.

Did you know, for example, that it was planned at some point that Yoshi would be allowed in Ghost Houses?

This is not true. It's a rumor started by someone on /v/ on Gamefaqs. First, they "started" it there, then brought it to /v/ for lore threads in response to SotC threads about the devs saying there was a secret still undiscovered. Then it started gaining traction with some of the gullibles. Maybe he was hoping to rekindle the spirit of those 90's Zelda websites claiming they have found the Triforce and whatnot, or generate discussion of Zelda games during the long drought after Skyward Sword when everyone was all about Skyrim, or both. We'll never know because whenever I call him/you out on it, he just rages pretending to be someone else again, and then leaves the thread. There's no "November" issue of Famitsu, no ZeldaPower source for this, and the only person named "Gopjo" who speaks Japanese seems to be this guy https://twitter.com/gopjo who is probably who made it up.

What are you referring to? The Dorrie thing in Mario 64? Some secret code in Tetris?

>> No.4744653

No, it's an extremely famous game and all the Internet "experts" have said it's impossible because they supposedly decompiled the game. Like I said, it's being worked on, but when the video appears you will easily be able to confirm it with your copy whether it be a ROM or a cartridge. The other day someone pulled it off, but they didn't capture the footage or record it [!], so Ive asked them to do it again with a video. Now if for some reason they can't do it, the word is getting out. It should be big. The game even has two more secrets that are not found anywhere online as well.

I'm not describing it here or naming the game because I'm fucking sick of doubters calling me a liar, so I'm going to present a video or have someone else do it and then tell you guys. It may appear on Youtube first, who knows. If a secret from an old game makes the news soon, that's it.

So it's SMB1 then since that perfectly fits your description. And yeah, it's a tiny game that's been completely disassembled and hacked to death and all of its intentionally programmed content has been revealed and studied already. Barring some TAS-level physics bugs that are still sometimes being found, the only exception I can come up with would be some obscure new minus world related glitch where the game is reading garbage data in an unexpected way or something. But those would hardly count as a "secret".

Welp, I finally figured out what this means.

Only it turns out it's just one milestone in a giant mystery that Nintendo has been weaving into their shit for literal decades, and nobody's going to believe me unless you've followed the clues for yourself.

It's not even exclusive to Zelda. BOTW is one way in to the puzzle but it's not the only one.

Anyway, it would be fruitless for me to go into much more detail than this unless I'm willing to commit to making some very long posts/videos explaining things, and even then it's designed in such a way that it really only makes sense when you follow the thread.

Look I love secrets myself, but people datamine these fuckers to death now. There is enough autism that everything that should be discovered has been discovered already, glitched through and tried to death over and over with titles like OoT and SM64. The only way in which something could be discovered by now is if something from these games pointed to something that didn't exist within these games (say, something like a reference to another game, movie or whatever the fuck, pretty much down to interpretation). The whole "what did they mean by this" with shit that looks a bit out of place or does nothing mechanically but it's there. Something like this >>4718802 that doesn't really have any effect ingame, but could be interpreted as something in real life. Context and shit.

However I really doubt there is much of a point to that. It's like trying to figure out who came up with the "mew under the truck" thing, but then you also figure out that it's as simple as just thinking "well shit, there's a truck over there with no purpose and people have mew, I couldn't find it elsewhere, so maybe it -is- there". In the end it's down to a pointless interpretation of why there's a fucking truck and said truck does absolutely nothing.

In order to find anything of substance you have to look for titles that people haven't really had the opportunity to get so deep into. Modern games still today do have secrets that can be datamined, some games even lose that quick (an example is Undertale, say what you will about that game but they datamined the fucker real quick and destroyed any chance of having fun with it) but if you're going to look for actual secrets on a fucking Zelda or a Mario game, I guess go for the latest titles.

This is extremely but, as far as I could tell, has never been documented.

In Earthbound upon defeating the Starman DX, the boss of the Stonehenge base, a short dialouge segment will happen and then a cutscene occurs in which the screen shakes. The dialouge the boss says upon defeat, is very short and easily read by most players in a second or two. What people don't know is there is a small secret here.

When this dialouge box appears if you keep it up for a few seconds and don't pass over it a different song begins to play. The song that plays when this happens is conpletely unique and is not included in the game's soundtrack, I can't find any actual recordings of it online at all even.

Assuming tools used to create the original game were as limited as the ones we use to create romhacks, objects would have had to be placed in a different program than the one used to model the level's geometry. In an area where the camera is to be locked, it would make sense to leave a marker in the geometry to pinpoint that location rather than estimating.
If I had to guess, I'd say this is one such placeholder. Considering the player would never see it without changing the camera's position, it's not much of a leap to assume it was forgotten about.

It's also possible that was another place to find one of those B-K cartridges. It probably contained the yellow egg since it's just randomly sitting in Heggy's shed without a cart to go with it, which I always thought was very strange. If that was its purpose, then why they would cut that room is beyond me. Time constraints, maybe. Or, maybe it had a larger role in the original SnS (perhaps that's where it was initiated) and since it got axed the room became redundant so they removed it entirely.

And although I already kinda explained, I'll reiterate because apparently this thread is full of entitled retards who:
(a) Seem actively hostile towards the idea of secrets EXISTING despite this being an undiscovered secrets thread.
(b) Apparently think the only class of secrets is "sonic is a playable character"-tier shit.
(c) Can't tell the difference between me and an impersonator anon despite the latter making claims which contradicted what I said in the first place.

Like jesus christ is there a guy handing out retard pills at the door to this thread or what?

Anyway: the scratched tree doesn't do anything. I highly doubt there's any code referencing it. It's more of a signature referencing stuff they plan to do in the future.
It's not an entry point to the puzzle. Before 2015 I doubt there were any games with entry-point clues because nobody was supposed to know about it yet prior to that. There are a number of games, no doubt many more than I'm aware of, which tie into the puzzle at this point, though, it's not just Zelda by a long shot, and not even just Nintendo-labelled stuff, almost like there's ~a giant media conspiracy~ or something.
Investigating mysteries in these games eventually leads to a much larger cross-media puzzle which they've been implementing upside-down for a long time, such that it would only make sense later on, yet somehow stretch backwards into earlier games and even retroactively contextualise weird connections between unrelated games that we're all aware of. Continuing that trend I'm gonna assume that future games will make the clues easier and easier to spot until they're eventually hitting everyone over the head with certain revelations that come along with it.

With knowledge of later parts, the tree makes sense, but it does't fucking do anything.

Because these companies had a hard enough time taping together a game to ship anyway, without having to come up with some subliminal master work, as evidenced by the tremendous amount of stuff that gets cut in development or left over after being dummied out.

You're overcompensating.

Much less something that you doesn't make you sound retarded when you compare it to reptilian conspiracy theories or whatever.

There is a room that was replaced with a different one late in development. The old room is still in the ROM, but you have to manually find it. Referring to the dev map, the old room is still shown (and appears to be the only difference between the map and the game), lending substantial proof the map is legit and the change was made very late in development.

The room data structure arrays that tell the game where room data is located don't have the old room listed (there are a small number of other unused rooms in the game, but they are still in the arrays, just no doors link to them). To find the old room, you have to map out the location and size of all the room data. After doing that, you notice there is a level-ish sized hole in the middle of the level data that nothing references. When you edit a room header to point to this data, and edit a door to link to this room, walking through the door will take you to this room. It's a very large room that is different from the final version. The final version's room is conceptually much cooler, but is a major drag for speed runners.

Can you spot this room on the map?

But you fail to see that Zelda lore changes meaning according to context and relativity. What you believe is an in could actually be an out. In fact I know it is, because I REALLY know the secret behind the tree. But I can't tell you because letting you in on this secret would be leading you amiss given the surety of your established theories. You lack the wisdom, the fear of sin of misapplying what you know, because you are a hearer but not a doer. Post your theory and I will confirm it for you. That is of course, unless your confidence in what you "know" is superseded only by your lack of courage to confirm it. You may have knowledge and knowledge is power, but only in the hands of someone willing to do what is necessary.

The human body is a powerful cosmological machine, within which the neuroendocrinological system that informs impulse is also that which can lead to the perception of any imagining the mind is capable of in its attempt to comprehend its free will, which is only be perceived in the PATIENCE of meditation in which the body attunes to that from whence it came. In striving to find this reunion, naturally a body will seek connections in the manifest world to those correlations within which call to the planets and stars, and those who harness this psychic faculty or "intuition", are thus able to draft fanciful illusions of truths that may not be true at all. So much as to make the Law of Large Numbers that says patterns will always be found in any closed system even out of randomness seem moot in comparison. MGSV was called "Xenoblade X Redo" in Japan by fans because it seems to copy the story. That I could almost buy. But this? Please.

However, if you enumerate the room headers, record all the locations of the compressed room data (the actual layout of the room), and how big each compressed room is (by watching each room decompress), you will find the gap I'm talking about. It's the only one. I remember to get to the room I had to edit a room header and/or a door to point to the dummied out room data. I don't recall having to fake much more than that.

I don't think this really counts but anyway

In Chrono Trigger the first time you fight Queen Zeal she can't kill you because her only attack is "Halation" which just reduces HP to 1. This means that everyone hits her as hard as possible and doesn't bother with healing, and that combined with her low HP means the fight is very short. Several years ago I did a playthrough and I didn't remember this, and I had developed a tactic for boss fights of spamming Haste until it had no effect, then attacking.

Queen Zeal actually has one other move, "Death Kiss". Because I spent a lot of time spamming Haste instead of just beating her, she eventually used this second move. The animation for "Death Kiss" is her moving to crotch level in front of her target, then bobbing up and down while making sucking noises. The move drains MP.

I'm not going to post anything else about it, but I'm not going to (wouldn't, and never did) make high-handed remarks like that or act like I've got some mystical bombs to drop that I'm withholding or any other gay fedora faggotry either.

The scratches don't do anything, and do my knowledge there's nothing to be done in OoT to reveal anything hidden. They're just a clue or signature which will make sense once you're deep into the cross-media puzzle which they've been building back-to-front for ages, and which you can only find your way into via ARG-like content in a number of interlinked yet ostensibly unrelated games released in the last few years, starting with investigating the lore.
On that subject I'll just say that these are all games in which the surface-level plot isn't being fully truthful to your character/you about what's really going on, and you're not necessarily the hero of the story as a result. That includes BotW.

I've been killed for absolutely no reason at all in the middle of a level. I've seen weird sound and sprite glitches and shit showing up in my inventory that's not supposed to be there and stuff disappearing that I needed. And in the overworld map I've seen the fucking boomerang brothers moving at warp speed or sometimes flying off the map never to be seen again. Same has happened with the airship. I've seen the level tiles on the overworld map not flip over.

I've been killed by the fire flower popping out of the box also and I've seen the fire snakes in World 2 flying through the air when they are supposed to just be able to jump a certain number of tiles. And this is all on a normal NES and normal cartridge. I just played it yesterday in fact and it works fine.
