## Additional Setup Information
6 months ago
The Ship of Harkinian uses a proprietary versioning system consisting of a sci-fi film character followed by a phonetic alphabet code word. The film character represents a major release version which increments with the addition of many new features and bug fixes. The code word represents a minor release version which increments with small updates mainly comprised of bug fixes. For example, `DECKARD ALFA`.

### The Extraction Tool
6 months ago
* Open a rom to initiate generating the `oot.otr` archive file.
* If a second button exists then `oot.otr` already exists. To prevent overwriting the old `oot.otr` use this button to choose a new game directory. The new directory must not already contain an `oot.otr` to prevent an error.
* When the process completes, place `oot.otr` beside `soh.exe` if it is not already.

This packaging process can take up to **5 minutes**.
6 months ago
Close the OTRGui when the `Done!` message appears.
If you get another message, then you might have selected the wrong rom. Make sure to use a rom consistent with the above checksum.

If you still cannot get the tool to work, join our [Discord Server]( and ask for help in the `#support` text channel. Keep-in-mind that we do not condone piracy in any way.
