Welcome to the Ship of Harkinian!

A PC port of OoT allowing you to enjoy the game with modern controls, widescreen, high-resolution, gyroscopy and other great features! Setup is simple, let's get started!

The Ship does not include assets and as such requires a prior copy of the game to play.

Quick Start

  1. Download The Ship of Harkinian from Discord.
  2. Get a ZRET OoT Debug ROM
Build date: `zelda@srd022j 03-02-21 00:49:18`
sha1: cee6bc3c2a634b41728f2af8da54d9bf8cc14099
  1. Use the OTRGui to generate an oot.otr archive file.
  2. Launch soh.exe

Congratulations, you are now sailing with the Ship of Harkinian! Have fun!

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.

The Extraction Tool

  • 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.

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.

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.

Currently, DirectX 11 and OpenGL is supported. Change the renderer by opening the shipofharkinian.ini configuration file in notepad and add sdl to gfx backend for OpenGL or leave blank for DirectX.

Take The Survey

Building The Ship of Harkinian

  1. Install Python
  2. Install Visual Studio 2022 Community Edition 2b. In the Visual Studio Installer, install MSVC v142 - VS 2019 C++.
  3. Clone the Ship of Harkinian repository.
  4. Put your 2020 OoT debug rom in the soh folder.
  5. Launch soh/fixbaserom.py.
  6. Launch soh/extract_baserom.py.
  7. Copy the baserom folder from the soh folder into the OTRExporter folder.
  8. Run OTRExporter/OTRExporter.sln.
  9. Switch the solution to Release x64.
  10. Build the solution.
  11. Launching OTRExporter/extract_assets.py will generate an oot.otr archive file in OTRExporter/oot.otr.
  12. Run soh/soh.sln
  13. Switch the solution to Release x86.
  14. Build the solution.
  15. Copy the OTRExporter/oot.otr archive file to soh/Release.
  16. Launch soh.exe.

Troubleshooting The Exporter

  • Affirm that you have an /assets folder filled with XMLs in the same directory as OTRGui.exe
  • Affirm that zapd.exe exists in the /assets/extractor folder
