The Legend of Zelda: The Fort Knights
Posted 15 December 2007 - 05:35 PM
After his experience on the island of Koholint, Link was exploring uncharted areas of Hyrule.
As he came to the prow of a great mountain, he saw in the distance something he thought he would never see again
Flying towards link was a being of great power, an enigma capable of controlling his very dreams...
And once again, Link was greeted by the Windfish.
Before he realised what was happening, A rift opened in the very mountain upon which he was stood
And Hyrule dissapeared, to be replaced with a strange new land.
As Link awoke to see what had become of his wherabouts, the words of the windfish echoed in this head...
'Fear the Fort Knights Link'!
Start - Pressing 'start' will bring up the subscreen where Link can equip different Items, and check the quest status and maps.
A && B - When in the subscreen, Link can equip different items to the A and B buttons. Move the cursor to an item, then press 'A' or 'B' to equip the item to that button. The item attributed to that button can then be used in-game.
L - A variety of actions can be performed with the 'L' button. Link can roll, talk to NPCs, read signposts and other area-specific actions with the 'L' button.
.:How to set up The Legend of Zelda - The Fort Knights:.
Firstly, The Legend of Zelda - The Fort Knights must be played in Zelda Classic 2.5 build 679.
When you have opened Zelda Classic, and reached the name entry screen, register a new name. Place the cursor on this name, and press the 'A' button. Then press it again to browse for a custom quest. When you have selected The Legend of Zelda - The Fort Knights, press 'OK', then press 'start'.
You will then be displayed with the 'Designer's Note'. Be sure to follow these instructions, otherwise you may have your items removed by a bug in the game. This is not intentional, but no other way around this bug could be found.
Link starts with 8 heart containers, the Level 1 Sword and Shield, an Empty Bottle and 4 Bombs.
From the shop on the first screen of Eyrus Village, Link can buy more Bombs, a Potion to put in the Bottle, or the Level 2 Shield that will block fireballs.
As Link progresses through the quest, a variety of extra weapons will become available to him.
Sword - The Sword is Link's key weapon. Used to take down a variety of enemies and trip lever-switches, it is an important and powerful asset. Rumour has it that another, more powerful sword may be hidden in the world of the Fort Knights also...
Bombs - Link starts with 4 bombs, and can carry up to a maximum of 10. Some enemies drop bombs. Bombs can be used to blast through some obstacles, and are also a powerful weapon against many enemies.
Ember Seeds - Link can aquire Ember Seeds, which will unleash a small ball of flame, capable of damaging some enemies and burning small bushes.
Arrows - After Link aquires Arrows, he can buy more from the shop in Eyrus Village. Arrows are a powerful, long-ranged weapon. Link can hold 30 Arrows.
Hookshot - Link can use the Hookshot to latch onto certain rocks, pulling himself across holes. The Hookshot can also be used to freeze almost all enemies - including Darknuts and Wizzrobes!
Hammer - Link's Hammer will smash through all enemy defences, as well as pounding pegs into the ground.
Boomerang - Ralph who lives in Eyrus Village has a Boomerang for sale to Link. With this weapon, Link can paralyze many enemies, making them much easier to defeat!
Red - The Red Tunic will allow Link to survive in hot areas, which are usually cautioned to him by signs.
Blue - The Blue Tunic will allow Link to swim.
Gold - The Gold Tunic will allow Link to see invisible enemies, aswell as raising his defence!
Potion - Link can drink a Potion to restore 8 hearts of Life.
Ocarina - The Ocarina can be used to trigger a variety of secrets.
Roc's Cape - When Link aquires the Roc's Cape, he will be able to fly over many obstacles.
Heart Container Piece - There are 20 Heart Container Pieces scattered across the land. When Link aquires four Heart Container Pieces, his maximum hearts will increase by one.
Heart Container - When Link defeats a Fort Knight, he will get one extra Heart Container.
The three Medallions held by the Fort Knights in Razmargus, Hersilia and Odentia will allow Link access to where the Commander Knight dwells in Tasmerat Fort.

PLAY IN 2.5 BUILD 679, NOT 692 OR 693!

And for anyone who doesn't know, you can get 2.5 build 679 at
Also, don't play it in the lastest build (697) either, because the bug that's causing me problems is still broken there.
And here is another download mirror at FileFront.
I think it's unlikely that the other one won't work, it seems quite reliable, but just to make sure:
Here it is!

The red tunic is in Razmargus, the blue tunic is in Hersilia and the gold tunic in Odentia. They aren't too hard to find really, you should have them before you get into the dungeons.
Glad you like my screens Link75
I'll PM you with better instructions if you want?
I don't want to post them just here really.

Anyway, it seems that instead of dieing within the hot rooms without wearing the red tunic you are rewarded with invincibility once all of your hearts go away. Kinda a ruining bug, so try to fix it and give me a new link and I'll change it in the topic.
EDIT: Wait, this only seems to happen in the hot block puzzle room.

You know the screen where you kill the octorocks and the darknut zmaster? You can go south from there, you will find the key there.
I've gotten further than that, but I can't find the red tunic. There are two hot areas for dead ends and a place where it looks like I need arrows to shoot the statue and another key. Can't find any of this stuff.
Posted 16 December 2007 - 05:14 AM
I'll go and have a look at that.
Anyway. Seeing as this is starting to become a problem;
From the start of Razmargus Flows, if you head south, you should be able to find 2 keys and the Ember Seeds.
And althought it may seem that once you get to that point you need the Red Tunic to get the Red Tunic, well, you don't!
You just have to be a bit brave with your escapades into the hot areas =P
And also, judging which areas are hotter is probably key. One of the areas takes away quarter hearts, and there's a potion in a chest in the room. That was supposed to be a clue that it's still accessable, even though you don't have the Tunic yet (owing to the fact that it's in the next room)
One of the areas takes away whole hearts every half a second, so you die very quickly; you need the tunic.
One of the areas is a large cave network with at least 8 screens, each with half a heart every second, so you can't make it through to the end without the tunic. (Also when you get to the end every room after it is hot also).
So yeah, that's how you get the red tunic.
If you're finding the hot room beforehand difficult (I know I made it, but I did manage it on 3 hearts without the potion), go and beat Hersilia or Odentia first and get some more life.
And I'm afraid you won't be finding the arrows in Razmargus, Link75.
EDIT: wow, now that is interesting Plissken. I shall most definately have to go and have a poke at it and see what's wrong.
If anyone has noticed that bug, please don't try and do it ¬_¬
It'll ruin the game
OK! Bug is FIXED!
And seeing as I deleted the old file and uploaded one with exactly the same name, there's no need to update the link. Thanks anyway, Plissken.
OH! and big rocks that look like Ganon zmaster?
They're just ornaments =P
Don't expect to be seeing Ganon here.
The last boss is perhaps more challenging though, has anyone got that far yet? russ? Plissken?
Just wondering and all.

While somebody answerz, I go and play mazochist by going through a hot area to get that "eeeeeeeeeeeeasy to get" red tunic.
Posted 16 December 2007 - 05:58 AM
i had this only problam
because i need it
Also joe i can do the block puzzle in the heat with 1 heart left and no potion.
Posted 16 December 2007 - 06:50 AM
(No? Well they're brown with yellowish circles in, you'll never see more than one per screen and only on the overworld)
Chests appear on those spots. Have a look one screen to the left of your lock-block problem
It's not very hard really is it.
Oh and I think you'll find its an OCARINA CC
Even the subscreen says so.

Meanwhile, in Razmaragus Flows...
I got the magma medallion (That boss was crazy!) and the HCP from the dungeon.
So, now I'm off to the graveyard until you tell me more secrets... I mean, the location of the third tidal key.
