Additional Setup Information

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.

Windows Rom Extraction

  • Open OTRGui.exe, and select one of the supported roms listed above, to generate the oot.otr archive file.
  • If a second button already exits 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.

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.

Linux Rom Extraction

  • Place one of the supported roms in the same folder as the appimage.
  • When you run the soh appimage, it should begin generating the oot.otr archive file.
  • When the process completes, place oot.otr in the same folder as the appimage, if it is not already, then run the appimage.

The packaging process can take up to 5 minutes.

If you get any errors, then you might have selected the wrong rom. Make sure to use a rom consistent with the above checksum.

MacOS Rom Extraction

  • Run soh.app, and when prompted, select one of the supported roms listed above.
  • You should see a notification saying Processing OTR, then, once the process is complete, you should get a notification saying OTR Successfully Generated, then the game should start.

The packing process can take up to 5 minutes.

If you get an error saying Incompatible ROM hash, you have selected the wrong rom, make sure the checksum matches one of the ones listed above.

Nintendo Switch Rom Extraction

  • Download the latest PC release of the Ship of Harkinian, and follow the instructions above for generating the oot.otr archive on that platform.
  • Place the .nro and the oot.otr archive into a folder called soh in your Switch folder on your Switch

Nintendo Wii U Rom Extraction

  • Download the latest PC release of the Ship of Harkinian, and follow the instructions above for generating the oot.otr archive on that platform.
  • Copy the .rpx and the oot.otr archive to wiiu/apps/soh

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.

Running The Ship of Harkinian

Launch the game. If the window immediately closes, or if there are visual artifacts, you may have selected the wrong rom in the OTRGui tool.

Default keyboard configuration:

N64 A B Z Start Analog stick C buttons D-Pad
Keyboard X C Z Space WASD Arrow keys TFGH

Other shortcuts:

Keys Action
F1 Toggle menubar
F5 Save state
F6 Change state
F7 Load state
F10 Fullscreen (OpenGL)
Alt+Enter Fullscreen (DirectX)
Ctrl+R Reset

Currently, DirectX 11 and OpenGL are supported. Change the renderer by opening the shipofharkinian.json configuration file in notepad and add sdl to the quotes in "GfxBackend": "" for OpenGL or leave blank for DirectX.

Custom Music

We support importing custom Seq64 files to replace the in game music and fanfares (Not sound effects yet currently).

First you will need to prepare a folder with the desired sequences, in which every sequence will have two files with the same name and different extensions, a .seq Seq64 file and a .meta plaintext file. These files can be categorically nested in folders if desired, they will still be consumed as if they were all at the top level.

The meta file will have two lines, the first line is the name that will be displayed in the SFX editor, and the second line will be the instrument set number, in base 16. For example, if there is a sequence file Foo.seq then you need a meta file Foo.meta that could contain:

Awesome Name

Once you have prepared your sequences folder:

  1. Download and open Retro.
  2. Choose the "Create OTR" option
  3. Choose the "Custom Sequences" option
  4. Using the file select, choose the sequences folder you prepared in the previous instructions.
  5. Click the "Stage Files" button (Reminder: SoH can handle 1024 custom sequence in total, this number include the count of the original music with it so be sure to take this into account)
  6. Click the "Finalize OTR" text in the green footer.
  7. Finally click "Generate OTR" and for the source destination it needs to go in the mods folder of your SoH installation.
    • This mods folder should be a sibling of your oot.otr file.

Assuming you have done everything correctly, boot up SoH and open up the SFX Editor (In the Enhancements dropdown). You should now be able to swap out any of the in game sequences/fanfares for the sequences added in your newly generated OTR file. If you have any trouble with this process please reach out in the support section of the Discord

Building The Ship of Harkinian

Refer to the building instructions to compile SoH.
